The story begins in 1803 with the birth of Thomas Macey in Canterbury and his subsequent marriage to Elizabeth Ann Hayward in her home village of Wye. They appeared to have two children - Charles and Elizabeth Ann. But the branch of interest here follows Charles.
Charles Macey (1827 - 1900) was christened in Wye on 15th October 1827 and married Ann Maria Peckman (1831 - 1905), from Preston in Kent, on 25th December 1851. Ann Maria died in 24th January 1905 at 22 Bayford road, Sittingbourne with effects of £300 16s. 1d. Charles and Ann Maria were not unusual in having a large family of 12 children.
Charles Macey is recorded as a "beer seller" and "licensed victualler" in "The Masons Arms", recorded at the time as No. 95 West Street, Faversham. That pub closed long ago and is now a private residence. When he died in Faversham (3rd December 1900), his sons, Frank Henry (also "Henry Frank") and Frederick Henry Macey, took over the tenancy. This was one of the many pubs owned by the Neames family in Kent at that time.
The children from Charles and Ann Marie's marriage were made up of:
|b. 1851 (Sittingbourne), Ellen Frances (m.1871, Richard Moore)|
|b. 1854 (Sittingbourne), Frank Henry|
|b. 1855 (Sittingbourne), Charles Edward; d. 27th October 1878|
|b. 1858 (Sittingbourne), Elizabeth Jane (m. 1877, Frederick Houghton)|
|b. 1860 (Faversham), Ann Maria (m. 1881, Thomas George Clark)|
1864 (Dover), William Edward
(see notes below about this family's "black sheep")
|b. 1866 (Hougham, near Dover), George Edwin (m. 1895, Elizabeth Jane Berry)|
|b. 1870 (Faversham), Edward William (m. Alice)|
|b. 1871 (Faversham), Rosetta Caroline|
|b. 1873 (Faversham), Frederick Henry|
|b. 1876 (Faversham), Henry Frank|
|b. 1878 (Faversham), Emily Jane|
Of these children, George Edwin Macey provides the link with the next generation and Stedlyn Farm in Lynsted.
George Edwin (left) appears as a brickmaker in Faversham in 1891 and it was in Faversham that he married Elizabeth Jane Berry (witnesses were Robert Henry Groom and Jane Elizabeth Wanstall) on 6th December 1927 in St. Stephens Church, Dover. Elizabeth may have lived at 45 Newton Road, Faversham, before their marriage. By 1901, George had become a "fish dealer" living in Wallers Road, Faversham alongside his brother, Edward William. In 1911, he is recorded as "fish hawker", living at Black Cottages, Teynham.
George Edwin and Elizabeth Jane Macey (nee Berry) had nine children, one of whom sadly died before he was six months old - Frank Henry Macey (b.7th January 1903, died 2nd January 1903). Their children were:
|b. 1894 (Faversham), Patience Annie|
|b. 1896 (Faversham), Lydia Frances|
|b. 1898 (The Brents, Faversham), Charles Edwin [War Records survive]|
|b. 1900 (Faversham), Pretoria May|
|b. Jan. 1903 (Teynham), Frank Henry [died at 6 months old]|
|b. Dec. 1903 (Teynham), George Archibald [Myra Scott's father] [m. Gladys May Hudson]|
|b. 1906 (Teynham), Walter Frederick [m. Dorothy Eileen Hudson]|
|b. 1908 (1908), Percy Vincent|
|b. 1911 (Teynham), Hilda Jane|
|b. 1912 (1 Lynsted Lane), Irene (known as "Rene")|
Patience Annie Macey married in Faversham Registry Office to Alfred John Stevens (39) in 1920. They lived on the Lynsted side of Greenstreet opposite the Post Office according to Myra's recollections. Alfred had hitherto lived in Lewson Street.
The last entry for "Rene" was a favourite aunt of Myra's. "Rene" married Albert Edward Annand on 22nd December 1934 at the Methodist Chapel on Lynsted Lane. Albert was a "Yard Gang Stopper(? not clear)" whose father was a "time keeper in Lloyds offices".
