A typical wooden clapboard house
The Crockford family outside 37 Rose St
Sheerness. It would have been on the other
side of the road from the Heritage Centre at
the bottom of the car park we think.

Thanks to Paul Dummott for the pic.

my great grandfathers brother Matthew Webb married Ellen Ryan Crockford (given the same name as her mother) and lived at 135a Hope Street, just round the corner from Rose Street where my great grandfather George Samuel Webb lived. Matthew and Ellen Ryan They had 7 children alltogether but only 2 survived by 1911. Ellen suffered an early death.

There is an Ellan Ryan Crockford buried in Minster cemetary near the fence. I have a foto of it because I thought it might have some bearing on my ancestors. It probably does but its not my direct ancestors.

I know alot about the island and the families that lived there. My grandmother was born and raised in Sheerness, Elmley and Queenborough and stayed on the island until about 1918. My partner lives there too.

Hi - My aunt Kitty from Sittingbourne(who I never met)married a Walter Crockford in 1923 on Sheppey. They lived on Sheppey and in 1956 were living (at least Kate(Kitty)was)in Bluetown. Wondering if Walter was anything to do with the family in the picture. I have not had the opportunity yet to follow up that area of my family tree but if I do make a connection I will ask you Trevor, as requested, if I can use the picture on my tree. There are some really brilliant history sites on Kent and Sheppey. This site included, Very impressed thankyou. Angela.

I have just stumbled upon your web site and almost fell out of my chair with excitement when I saw the picture of the Crockford’s. I have been doing some family research and I am convinced that the photo is of my great grandmother Alice and great aunts Elizabeth, Lousisa and Liddia. According to the copy of the 1891 census that I have my ancestors lived at 38 Rose Street.
The information that I have is that my family have lived in or around Sheerness since 1804 and have been associated with either the coastguard or dockyard. My father was born there and moved to London where I was born. I emigrated to Canada in 1980.
Would it be possible to purchase a copy of the photograph that you have posted and any other Crockford related pictures or information that you may have.
Thank you for making my day
Jeff Crockford
