Jacob Joseph Marsham, former Vicar of Shorne
Obituary from "The Times", 25th October 1894
   "The Church Review announces the death of the Rev. JACOB JOSEPH MARSHAM, which took place on Tuesday last at the patriarchal age of 90. Born on February 8th 1804, at Rochester, where his father, the Hon. And Rev. Jacob Marsham, D.D., was one of the canons of the cathedral, he was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford.
   His father was also a canon of Windsor, rector of Kirkby Overblow, Yorkshire, vicar of Wateringbury, Kent, and a prebendary of Wells.
   Mr Marsham was ordained in 1827 as his father's curate at Kirkby Overblow. Ten years later he was presented by the Dean and Chapter of Rochester to the living of Shorne, Kent, which he held for 52 years, only resigning when he became blind. He had been hale and hearty to within a couple of days of his death, and at last succumbed to senile collapse.
   For nearly 40 years he had been J.P. For the county of Kent. He was a grandson of the second Baron Romney and nephew of the third Baron, who was created Earl of Romney in 1801.
   During Mr Marsham's long incumbency of Shorne he was instrumental in restoring the ancient parish church. He also built excellent national schools. It was in his churchyard that Charles Dickens, whose house at Gad's Hill is only just outside the parish, used to love to sit, as Foster records in his "Life of Dickens"; and up to the very last Mr Marsham never let wind, rain, snow or personal ailment keep him away from church and the Holy Communion"
   Rev. Marsham's will was dated 18th February 1879, with a Codicil dated 2nd June 1891.
His executor was his nephew, Robert Henry Bullock Marsham. His personal estate was about 48,000 (about 3,000,000 in modern values). He left property to his nephew, Fitzroy D. Maclean; property at St. Kitts to nephew Robert Marsham. His nieces, Louisa Nevill, Emily Maclean and Fanny Hood were residuary legatees.
