Thomas WOOD, 1782, age 23, 19 & 19a St Margarets Street

17. Thomas WOOD, son of Simon WOOD and Margaret SHRUBSOLE, was born on 16 September 1759 in Chartham. He experienced Apprenticeship on 15 June 1775 in St Alphage, Canterbury Kent aged 16. Entered into Apprenticeship with William Monrow in St Alphege, Canterbury as a Cordwainer for 7 years. Thomas was a Cordwainer. He married Frances (Françoise) THORELL on 2 September 1784 in St Alphege Church, Canterbury. He died on 8 May 1809 in St Margarets , Canterbury Kent aged 50.

 

Apprenticed to William Monrow, in St Alphege, Canterbury Cordwainer for 7 years on 19 jun 1775. ( William Monrow died 6th June 1786 aged 68). Thomas set up in business at the end of his apprenticeship in 1782 when he was also entered as a Freeman of the City of Canterbury, by apprenticeship.It has been assumed that this was in 19 St Margarets Street . This certainly became the family home and shoemaking business until 1903 but I do not believe the business was transferred there until about 1800. My suspicions were first aroused when I confirmed the birth of Thomas and Frances's children. Thomas and Frances were married in St Alphege church in 1784. Mary Frances and Thomas Henry were baptised in St Alphege Parish in 1786 and 1789 respectively. Charles John, Edwin William, George Parsons, Francis Elizabeth and Henry Samuel were all baptised in All Saints Parish. The latter in 1800. Research carried out on my behalf by Steve Thomas indicates from the Rate books that Thomas Wood did not start paying rates in St Margarets Street until 1801/1802. Although there was a William Wood paying rates in St Margarets Street before that time but I am not sure if there is a relationship. In respect of the birth of the children it is significant that George Frederick was baptised in 1806 in St Margarets Parish. It is suggested therefore that Thomas established a shoemaking business in St Alphege in 1782, then transferred to All Saints around 1790 and finally moved into the larger premises at 19 St Margarets Street in 1801/02 where the business remained until 1903 when my Grandfather Edgar Lancefield closed it down and moved to Dover.
It is believed that our family were descended from the Huguenot refugees and this belief was reinforced when Dudley Wood came into contact with Robert Darlington - whose wife Wendy was a descendant of Albert Wood - and David Morris, great great grandson of Albert. Research by Dudley and that of several professional researchers almost certainly comes to the conclusion that the French connection comes through Frances Thorel, wife of Thomas Wood, the first Cordwainer in the family. Thorel being a well established name in the Picardy region of Northern France and noted for the Huguenots. She being the Great (x3)Grandmother of Wendy, David and Dudley.

 

Frances (Françoise) THORELL, daughter of Jean (John) THORELL (1733-1808) and Françoise (Frances) CHARTIER (1729-1796), was born on 14 February 1763 in St Alphage.
