have been doing research into the Hukins family that originates from
High Halden in Kent England. I have masses of information but there are
a lot of gaps that need filling in. Any one who can give me some help
please contact me at the email address at the bottom of this page. At this stage I go back to the early 1700's but
there are a huge number of missing links.
I have discovered that there is family in Australia, South Africa,
Japan, New Jersey and United Kingdom. A number of Hukins still live in
High Halden, and surrounding areas in Kent.
My Great Grandfather was born in High Halden. My Grandmother Kate was
born in Bethersden. (Husband Leslie Baldwin see
Baldwin Family Tree) My mother was also born in Bethersden and
unfortunately passed away on 17 June 2002. She had so much information
at her fingertips that I would never have been able to get where I did
with the tree without her help. The whole family originates from John
Hukins and Mary Qui-Hampton(married 12 October 1727). One of their sons,
John Hukins (1759 - 1819) married Elizabeth Critteden (1753 - 1808).
They had one son who went to Australia - James Hukins (1792) who was
married to Susanna Fullanger and another son Richard Hukins (1779 -
1858) who was married (13 July 1802) to Elizabeth Brunger (1778 - 1825).
There was also a son George Hukins (1803 - 1873) married to Margaret
Munn (1819 - 1875. The latter two I have a lot of information on but
many blank spots.
There is another Hukins family in Australia who originate from Chartham
(Chatham?) Kent. Their great, great grandfather is William Ambrose
Hukins born in 1830 in Chartham who married Clare Marshal born 1839 in
Reading. Any information on this family would also be a help as I keep
in touch with Australia. I am sure that if we could manage to go back
far enough we will find that both families originate from the same
Hukins. Ambrose Hukins father was Jefse (nickname?) Hukins (1801)
married to Elizabeth Christian in 1826. Jefse Hukins father was Ambrose
Hukins born in Chartham (date of birth unknown) who was married to
Elizabeth Burchet in 1784.
I receive new information all the time and the "tree" grows constantly.
Since my last update I have received a lot more news and the tree still
