Hi i recently visited oare gunpowder works and chart mills ...i also went on hunt for the marshworks .

My ancestor John Luckhurst born about 1850 married Laura Attaway worked at the gunpowder works in the 1900s . I am looking to trace information about them and also their daughter Florence Luckhurst whose street address in 1911 was The marsh powder works , Luddenham, nr Faversham...i know very little about her but she had 4 children from 1910 to 1919. The last child Albert Henry was born at Gravel pit house which i'm aware was the faversham union workhouse ..i was wondering if she and Albert would of stayed there and whether the other children were also there . Also i have been unable to find a death for her also .

Two of her other children were born at The bungalow .church street Acol (Minister district) and wondered what this was 1911 it was a residence for a family called O'JKeefe.

Any help or information about any of these would be great .
