Re: BRITISH Military website - County of KENT
My grandparents came from Kingswinford, Staffordshire and were married in Litchfield cathedral parish house. Ordinary folks couldn't afford a Cathedral wedding in 1875. The earlier ancestors came from the midlands in 1640. Several proudly served under Arnold against Burgoyne. They blame his troubles on backstabbing Massachusetts politicians. Mass. still owes him 6000 pounds. A comparatively wealthy man in 1774, he pauperized himself supporting the Revolution. Today I often have difficulty understanding some of the BBC news broadcasters. The English language is not a dead language, but thrives.
