Maxted family notes

This page has been mounted on the Book History blogsite following a series of enquiries about my relationship to other branches of the Maxted family. It presents all the information that I have gathered from family sources together with some investigations into Kent records that I undertook on behalf of another family member some years ago. Details relating to living members of the family have been anonymised apart from myself (23326531 in the second table). I have no further information available and regret that I cannot enter into speculative discussions of a genealogical nature. My researches, such as they have been, indicate that the family originates from east Kent, probably the hamlet of Maxted Street, in medieval times. The fact that the name appears to derive from the Anglo-Saxon words meaning "place of filth" or "dunghill" has not made me particularly eager to enquire further.

At the end of the book on the last page of the last parchment leaf: "John Maxted, parish clark's son". This last entry is interesting. For years up to the time of this I have been endeavouring to ascertain who made certain entries in many of our Canterbury registers distinguished by their clearness. It was John Maxted, parish clerk's son.]
