Harry Eve added:

In the "Calendar of Assize Records" (Kent Indictments Charles I and Charles II) in the Kent Archives at Maidstone are included : "27/7/1675 Indictment of Henry Eve of Lynsted, professor of theology, for permitting a hedge adjoining Pickett Lane Wood to overgrow the highway near Danaway in Borden. Confessed and fined 3s.4d.".
In 1664 Dr Eve was assessed for 6 hearths for hearth tax purposes in the Lower Half Hundred of Tenham, Borough of Bonepett. At the same time, his mother (by then a widow) was assessed for 5 hearths in Wye.

Latterly, Pat Blackford has kindly pointed to family connections with Norton Church:

In the chancel of Norton Church is a memorial slab to Willm Robinson of London, Gent, d.29.04.1667, whose 3rd daughter, Martha, married Henry Eve DD of Linste(d). She and her sister, married to Baptist Pigott of Norton Court, payed for the memorial slab.
