Trying to reopen contact with Rayners of Faversham history...
From a descendant in Orbost,Victoria, Australia

Hello Brian Rayner. I was passed on your details seeking Rayner connections by a family contact in America some time ago, and have just found this site and your inquiry seeking Rayner family from Faversham and East Kent area.
My grandfather John Herbert Rayner was born in the Fox Inn, Teynham, in 1877 when his father was running it.
I have confirmed details of Nicholas Rayner of Eastling who died 1844 at age of 91 if you are interested

In reply to Lyn Ellesser inquiry of Edward Rayner and the Rose Inn in 1904.
Edward R was my great grandfather, and the Rose Inn I believe was renamed the Fox Inn where my grandfather John Herbert was born in 1877. Edward and Elizabeth, my grandfather's sister, did go off to America in 1904.
I have quite a bit of info on the family if she likes to contact me and exchange family history details.

We've been in touch before, Brian. I forget when it was but it's maybe since then that Faversham Papers No 104 has been published (2007).
This is Faversham Explosives Personnel Register 1841-1934 Surnames H-R
and it includes two 19th-century Faversham Rayners. If you don't know about these already, get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I am also trying to find information on the Rayner family. I don't go back very far, only mid 1800s. I have been going through Edward Rayner who ran The Rose Inn in 1904. Happy to share what I have.

You may like to know that Allan and Joyce Rayner are still at the same address which I understand you visited in 1997. They are not, however, accessible by e-mail or via this Forum.
