Re: Surnames of homeowners in Isle of Wight

In Reply to: Surnames of homeowners in Isle of Wight by Ria Hendrix of 1389

Hello,
I am grasping at straws here. My ancestor, Robert Kent supposedly came
to Isle of Wight co as a headright to Justinian Cooper in 1630 or 1636.
He had a son, Luke Kent. I received a response to a query that there
was a Luke Kent who was a witness to the will of Richard Lewis- of lower
parish, will dated 13 Dec. 1691, recorded 26 Mary 1692

Exerpt:
"Legatee wife, Sarah; son Rchard plantation on which William Duck lives,
said Duck to take in tuition my son Richard; son Thomas land rented to
James Cullie, Thomas Giles to take his son, if Mr. Giles die, then he
may be free; Ann placed in care of Mr. Bressie; daughter Elizabeth in
care of Richard Reynolds and wife Elizabeth; unborn child. Overseers
Thomas Joyner Jr and Richard Reynolds Jr. Witness Joshua Turner,
Alexander Mathews, Hugh Bressie and Luke Kent (2:314)

Also Luke Kent, son-in lwaw of Robert Edwards, give a cow to James Tullaugh 27 Oct. 1682. Signed Luke Kent and John Cohan (2:233)

Do you have any mention of a Robert Kent or Luke Kent, son-in-law of
Robert Edwards, in your book?

Best Regards,

Catherine Kent Walker
