In Reply to: Re: Looking for Chittendens by Arthur S Chittenden of 327

Dear Arthur, I have a modern copy of the "Doomsday" book. Its not complete, but at least we can get some names from 1066-87 which is when William was the English King.
I looked up Chittenden, and the closest I could find was a village in Kent called Chilham and another called Chillenden, the note with the name was....Osbern Fitzl edhard...From Bishop of Bayeux...Near coal fields with a windmill on the Downs.

In Suffolk...Chiltion in Stowmarket, Sudbury.

No De Boun so far..but will contune to look.
I have live in England also...and it looked and the weather was a bit like Tass. but the people were not as nice. I lived with a LADY but she really wasn't.

One of my friends in Tass. Her 2 GGmother was Transported because she rode a landowners horse which was in a field. They said she was trying to steal it, although she never left the field. It seems to me, from what I remember what I was told that the English courts would ship out people at the "drop of a hat". My novel, although one of my charaters was transported because she was mentaly ill. And others came over to be maids.
But my hero is the son of a Tanner and he went to England to learn how to grow hops. He meets the head-strong daughter of a Chuch of England Bishop. She had been sent to her room, for being rude to her sister. Instead of turning left and going to her room, she grabed a hat, turned right and went out the door.

My story starts in the first year of Victoria reign.

Let me have your e-mail, I can't send "A Chance Day" by way of Genealogy-web-site. I am sure that they would object.

Yours, Carol
