George Lenard was born in Challock in 1776 – (see surnames 1700’s) His extended family includes Beechings (see Surnames 1800’s)

The 2nd of two Challock Windmills stood from 1709 to 1809 approx near Mill House, Mill Lane. See also 1300’s

On January 1st 1769 by Act of Parliament this set of maps was published by Andrews Dury and Herbert.

The sections of the maps which cover Challock and the surrounding areas towards the major towns of Canterbury, Faversham, Ashford and Charing are of great importance as they show the road situation at that time.

On separate pages below we highlight these changes and look at their significance.
