The Iddenden Family from Wye, Kent

This page lists those members of the Iddenden family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

Our known Iddenden ancestors lived in Wye, near Ashford in Kent, from 1750 to 1850. Our line descends fromWilliam Iddenden, the illegitimate son of Mary Iddenden. We have traced most of William's children and their families in Canterbury and in the Ashford area of Kent.

Mary Iddenden's parents were Edward and Mary Iddenden, but we know very little for certain about them or any earlier generations. We know that an Edward Idenden married Mary Cork in Canterbury in 1751, and that children of Edward and Mary Idenden were born in Luddenham and Oare, but we are not sure that they are the same Edward and Mary found in Wye. So if you can tell us anything about these people, please get in touch.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record).
