Hawkhurst in Kent Village Guide


My name is Douglas Tilbe 2 and i have researched my family tree back to Hawkhurst. I was wondering if there was any Tilbes still in the area. My relative was Robert Tilbe born 1796. Thank you for any info possible.

    My GGG and GG grandfathers were born in Hawkhurst. Francis Couchman 1796 and Thomas C’man’1836. I wondered whether there were any descendants still living in the area?

    Hi Douglas, My grandfather was Gordon W W Tilbe, who was born in Blean, 1899. I received a lot of information for my family tree from Jim Tilbe in Canada. If you haven’t been in contact with Jim already I would be happy to share my tree with you.

    Hi Lynn,

    I realise that your post is 4 years old but I am looking for names and dates of my late mother-in-law Ruby Annie Nightingale (Tilbe) siblings and wondered if you can help.
