The following paper is, as far as possible, an exact transcription of a field note book compiled by the Lewisham antiquarian and author Mr Leland L. Duncan. It is one of a number which he compiled over a uncertain span of time. In carrying out his work of listing the memorial inscriptions he used a shorthand which at times is difficult to interpret particularly as it is written in pencil on poor paper.                              Frank Bamping October 3rd 2000

Notes on Old Wilmington
The following notes, contributed by Sir Geo. Whitehead, Bart., appear in the current Parish Magazine:- "At one time there was a handsome brass to Oliver Godfrey, Esq., who died in 1610, the figure being that of a man, a modern inscription being inserted beneath." I am quite unable to discover when the brass was removed. -"Many generations of yeoman lie buried in the churchyard. A writer in the Gentleman's Magazine for 1747 stating, for instance, that in the preceding year a quantity of Henry IV's coins had been dug out of a grave, but the registers for burials do not commence till 17th Century" - "Baldwins, where the Asylum now stands, is, of course, in Dartford Parish, but it is interesting to note some of its owners. Sir John Baude Kut[sic] (from whom it derived its name), the Abbot of Lessness, Cardinal Wolsey, and Eton College. The last occupant before the mansion was razed before the Asylum was erected in 1879-1900 was Mr (afterwards Sir) Hiram Maxim, engineer and inventor."
