Annie Louise Chandler / Webb

3rd April 2021

Sue Main:

Fiona, I have only just seen your reply on the Tenterden site sent July last year! I realised it was a different Annie Louise Hinde in the first message so didn't check again!
Thank you so much for bothering to reply.
You might have come in handy in some of my research!
Hope you're ok during these strange times.

Annie Louise Chandler / Webb

9th July 2020

Fiona Jackson:

Hello Sue - I don't live in Tenterden though I'd like to which is why I'm on this website! I am quite an experienced family historian and have found likely children of Annie Louise and Mr (William A.) Webb. Alfred W born in Fulham in December quarter 1919; Doris F Sept quarter 1924, Ronald H March quarter 1928 and Iris E March quarter 1930. These three were born in Woolwich. Annie did indeed die in Chatham in 1986 and her birth date is given as 18 Oct 1897. Bear in mind that these places are registration districts not exact locations. Do you know how to research in the birth marriage and death indexes online by the way? I hope this information might be helpful in furthering your quest.

Annie Louise Chandler / Webb

23rd May 2020

Sue Main:

I am researching my mother's family Hinde. Her father Frederick had a sister Annie Louise who married Henry Chandler and had a daughter Annie Louise Chandler (born 1897). The widowed mother remarried Alexander Browh in 1905. Annie Louise Jnr. married a Mr. Webb in Tenterden in 1917. I think they possibly had 4 children born in Tenterden and I think she died in Chatham in 1986. We lost touch with Frederick's family and I would so like some family history and (hopefully) photo's. Fingers Crossed!

Tildens in America

12th March 2019

Scott Tilden:

Looks like it's been years since folks have said "hi" here. So let me see if there is interest still.

The Tilden name came to the states in two places in the 1600s -- The well known line of Nathaniel who came to Scituate, Mass., and which line begat Samuel J. Tilden, who ran against Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876 for President of the United States. He famously won the popular vote but lost in the Electoral College. Many folks derive from this line.

But another line of Tildens, with Charles and Marmaduke, landed in Kent County, Maryland, across the Chesapeake Bay from Annapolis. This line had some "stars" as well. The Maryland line is mine.

There are many, many "coincidences" between the lines to be anything but related. However, for 100+ years no one has been able to prove the link in the UK.

I would love to communicate with any Tilden descendants to see where we all fit together. I have several genealogical friends as well who have dug into the lines, and we have DNA here and there as well. So write me at swtilden at and maybe we can make some connections...FINALLY!
