I have been researching a BALDOCK line which, although from Pluckley, does not yet link to my direct line.
However, one of the descendants was a Walter BALDOCK, baptised 6 January 1852, the illegitimate son of Margaret BALDOCK (born ~1834), the daughter of George BALDOCK and Sarah JOHNSON of Pluckley.
It turns out that, after marrying and hopping to Norfolk for a period, he ended up in St Mary-in-the-Castle, Hastings in 1891 and St Leonards-on-Sea nearby in 1901 – both places a stone’s throw from where I now live!
I work in Eastbourne and keep getting asked if I am related to the BALDOCK families of Hastings or Eastbourne, despite originating from Kent. If I can make a link from Walter to my line, then I may well be!
