Ted,
As I said I'd never heard of this website until Carol contacted me earlier today but I see there are a few members on the message board with the name "Birch" - all my ancestors spelt the name "Burch" back to the late 17th century so if these others are related it must be very distantly!

Ted,
Just for info. There are no Burches left in Tenterden as far as I know. My grandparents Allen and Eveline Burch were the last ones of this line in the town and they died over 25 years ago.
I found out about this thanks to a Carol Trotman who contacted me via Genes Reunited, a family research website.

Dear Ted,
Very kind of you to do this. I'm a great-nephew of the said Frederick (assuming it's Frederick junior and not senior) and by coincidence I work in the same road as his granddaughter, in Eastbourne.
I would imagine she'd be interested so I will email her tomorrow.
Regards
Martin Burch

You may already know this - but Frederick's Father (also Frederick) was a grocer living in Tenterden High Street in 1911, together with several children. Frederick was aged 4 then.

Does anyone know of a family in the St Michaels / Boars Isle / Tenterden area called Burch?

I found a book in a charity shop inscribed to Frederick Burch May 24th 1920 Jireh Chapel Particular Baptist Sunday School Boars Isle, and if I find a descendant I'm going to send it to them.
