John Lewis on Margate writing in 1736

John Lewis was vicar of Margate and the Margate section is quite long I have published some of it on the internet click here to read I will endeavour to put some more up later, the computer doesn’t seem to like these Gif files copied from Word, so I make no guarantees.


  1. Fascinating Michael! Thank you

  2. Pleasure Simon, I finally managed to get all of The parish of St John The Baptist (Margate) on the web.

  3. Lots of reading Michael but my Kentucky has turned up so guess which wins .............Thanks for all the work you do I know how hard it must be cheers Don ..oh and Happy new Year


Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
