Hawkhurst in Kent Village Guide

Gun Green and Wenman family


My husband’s WENMAN family lived in Hawkhurst from 1778 until at least 1931. For some of that time they lived at Gun Green. We have just discovered that Gun Green is so called because there was a Gun Foundry there.

Can anyone tell us anything about the Gun Foundry? Does anyone have any links to the WENMAN family?
