I am looking for any REED family members with their origins around the Sheerness-Isle of Sheppey area in Kent.
This family were associated with the Naval establishment there from at least about the 1830's onwards and maybe also prior to that time.
The earliest records I’ve found indicate that John Reed born 1797 in Sheerness Kent, married Elizabeth Arney from same town. The direct link I have to my part of the Reed family in Argentina goes as follows:
John Reed (1797 - 1872)
is your 3rd great grandfather
Edward James Reed (1830 - 1906)
son of John Reed
Edward T Reed (1860 - )
son of Edward James Reed
Alexander Edward Reed (1906 - 1987)
son of Edward T Reed
Roberto Alejandro Reed (1946 - )
son of Alexander Edward Reed
You are the son of Roberto Alejandro Reed - (not you?)
I am now looking for the rest of the family, and earlier records than 1800 possibly.
Some of James Reeds sons/daughters or branches from them may have gone to South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Canada.Looking for any possible links.
Please reach out if you have info to share.
