The transcript of Reverend Russell's extensive research up to 1902

Reverend Harry Russell (transcribed by Hothfield History Society)

The three volumes of Reverend Russell's manuscript "Hothfield" have been transcribed by the late Bob Rivers into 400 pages plus indexes. The manuscript was written mainly as a collection of notes charting the development of Hothfield from 680AD to 1900. It gives genealogical details of many of the families who influenced the development of the parish, mentions many of the more humble residents in the 18th and 19th centuries, describes economic and social conditions and identifies physical features. Many of the villages and towns around Hothfield are also mentioned.

The book can be borrowed from Ashford Library and seen in the reference section. It can also be seen in the Kent History and Library Centre at Maidstone.
