      1905. Regs.of Graveney,Gabriel Lee Hougham of Graveney Court,bur.2 Nov.1905,aged 77.( 1928-97
      Problem to solve,? Gabriel lee Hougham.b.l829 of Ralph Pepworth Hougham at Brookland is the same man on l85l Census,and buried at Graveney. Fully proven by many other sources. He says on oath that John Thomas Hougham that died 1866 is his brother, He claimed personal effects. No age of death of John Thomas is given. There is no John Thomas recorded in Regs,to Ralph Pepworth Hougham. There is a John. Wakeman Hougham by first wife,b.l825.and she. died 1827. There are two Toms recorded to second wife,one died at 8 months,and the other d.ln Birmingham 1927. thus outliving his Brother Gabriel 22 years,but he does not appear when Gabriel Claimed effects of«-John Thos.

      Ralph Pepworth Hougham died 1837.so he could not be the Father of The John Tom who was b.in London l840,nor could the Aunt Caroline b.l8l3 at Ivyohurch be a sister of Ralph-Pepworth because when Ralphs father Henry of Tenterden died, in l8l8,only five of his children survived him,none being named Caroline,nor is there any Caroline on the Tenterden birth registers.
