The Links on this page are related to Staplehurst and those web sites which have information specifically about Staplehurst. There are plenty of other sites which will address general topics.

All Saints Church in Staplehurst has it's own web site with information about the church and it's activities.

The Staplehurst Parish Council site has information on Staplehurst past and present. Anyone with ancestors from Staplehurst should visit this site. You will find a street map, photo gallery, population graph and much more. This site also hosts the Staplehurst Society information with short historical accounts, genealogy, and information on the buildings and people of Staplehurst.

The Roll of Honour site is dedicated to those men and women who fell fighting for their country. It includes information from the memorials in Staplehurst and information on each soldier mentioned. It is well worth visiting.

The Kent Genealogy Site, run by Maureen Rawson, is dedicated to the county of Kent but within this site there are many references to Staplehurst. You will find indexes to Quarter Session records, extracts from wills, Consistory Court of Canterbury Will index, and much more.

The Kent Archaeology Society has Monumental Inscriptions for many parishes and Staplehurst is listed as 'in preparation' so well worth keeping an eye on this page. They also have Medieval and Tudor Wills, transcribed originally by Leland Duncan, which includes some for Staplehurst. There are other areas of interest including Lay Subsidy Roll from 1334/5. The site also includes the Tithe Awards for Staplehurst.

One of the first places to visit should be the Kent Family History Society site. The products available from the KFHS include the Staplehurst 1871 census on CD, Staplehurst Memorial Inscriptions on fiche, and CMB 1538 - 1695 on fiche.

Gillian Rickard's Kent Family History site list publications for sale which includes a booklet on the Staplehurst Congregational Chapel listing.

The Old Maps site has available online maps dating from 1873 which shows many of the farms and key places in Staplehurst.

There are many wills relating to Staplehurst people on the TNA Documents Online site.

My personal website has a list of Publications about Staplehurst and a more general recommended reading list.

I have purposely omitted the many general purpose sites such as the FreeBMD, 1901 census, etc. as this information is widely available elsewhere.
