Note on Husband: Thomas Henry WOOD

Admitted as Freeman of the City of Canterbury 29 Sep 1812, Print dated 1826 shows Thomas Henry at a meeting of the Canterbury Catch Club.

Note on Wife: Elizabeth MAXFIELD

Elizabeth had three "base born" i.e. children born out of marriage before she married Thomas Henry. They all took the Wood name so we can assume that they were fathered by Thomas.
