How very interesting to hear from you - we must be related from a long way back. I have nearly completed my book following my side of the Paine family back to 1400. John was born in America - his parents were Puritans and they had been out in Massachusetts for two generations. He decided to return to England with his wife Katherine - you will have seen their grave in the Ebony Churchyard. My grandfather was Thomas who went into the paper manufacturing business. This prospered for some generations (I actually have original documentation and letters regarding this and other items) but eventually they went into the Stock Exchange and this lasted right up to my Fathers day. I would love to hear more from you as I don't know what John did when he arrived in Kent. We have been to Ebony and Appledore and in fact went into Church House in Appledore where John Mackett Paine lived along with his brother the Peruke maker. I am also trying to find out why there is a Paine Family Trust owned by a Mr. G.T. Paine for Dungeness. We visited a Mrs. Betty Paine who told us that her husband had died but she remembered him paying money to the Trust - do you know anything of this? My email address is pragnell@mweb.co.za
I do hope we can help each other a bit more and I look forward to hearing from you again.

Sincerely,

Phillippa Warner (Paine)

I am researching my family by the name of Paine. I believe there is a grave in Ebony Churchyard where one of my Great Great Grandmothers is buried - her name was Katherine and she was married to John and they had three sons. I would be very interested to meet anyone who knows about the family and can help me in my research. John returned to England from USA where he had been born and died around 1728. The family continued to live in Appledore for several generations and in Kent for the next 4 generations. I will be visiting the area in this coming month and any help would be most welcome. Thank you. Phillippa nee Paine
