Kent Maps and Tithe award schedules - Searching for a name

Back to List of Kent Maps, Tithe awards/schedules

GOOGLE, (see ) has a SEARCH option which is not commonly known.
Here is how it works... Lets say I was searching for the surname Ashenden. I type in the following, in the Google Search window slot (not the Internet Explorer address slot):-
Ashenden site:
It is vital that a space is left before the letter A in Ashenden and after the last letter n.
I am then presented with 10 references to Ashendens, all nicely high-lighted. Unfortunately Ashenden is also a place-name so many links to place-names mentioned on the 1905-06 6inch O.S. Maps will also appear.
   An example is shown below:-

Burham - Tithe award schedule
... Back to Burham Maps etc. Typed copy of a transcription by Thomas Burr located in the ... W. Ashenden W. Clackett A. Swan J. Simmons Mrs Smith R. Warde ... - 136k - Cached - Similar pages

The name Ashenden with the letter W for a christain name following. Now inside of clicking on the link 
Burham - Tithe award schedule  click on Cached and this will take you to Googles stored record of the 
webpage with Ashenden highlighted in a colour, scroll down the webpage looking for Ashenden highlighted in colour.

   When you have looked, click on the back button in the top left hand corner of your computer screen to return to Google's list of links and repeat the process.
   Any subsequent search for a surname will result in Google being be very helpful and when your type the first '/' forward slash, a window will drop down displaying the previous searches you carried out.  Just click on the first entry and then it only requires that the 'name' be changed. Its very easy and quick. To remove an entry on the drop down list, just highlight and press delete.
   One point to remember is that when a new tithe schedule from a Kent parish is added to the list, it may take up to four weeks for Google to find it, so check the
Updated ??-??-2005 section for recent additions. 
   If you have found this suggestion useful, or have any further tips,  please let us know on

We are all indebted to Peter Johnson of Newcastle, Australia for bringing this search routine to our notice
