The Woodman

I have had a email from a Mr Gerald Warner who is tracing his family tree in East Malling and Wateringbury. His current aim is to find some information on the following connection. If anyone can provide information, please could they post it on the blog.

"Iden Thomas Newman, who was the brother of my great grandmother Mary Ann Wells, was born in Mereworth on 17th May 1845. In his salad days he was a carpenter, in the census returns for 1881,1891 and 1901 he is recorded as being the Licensed Victualler at The Woodmans Inn, East Malling".

Dear DJM,

my wife and i are the current owners of the woodman. the complete history of the woodman is recorded on a set of index cards. the cards were handed to us when we purchased the property. i will look through them to see if there is anything which may be useful to you. regards Lee Jalili-Hodges

Is this the Iden Thomas Newman who was the father of Matilda Newman, and raised Matilda's child by Henry Town, as Henry Newman?
