The first edition was well reviewed:

“This particular family history is bound together by blood and property through many generations. Like all such stories it is a complex web of information and events. It is also a local history … of localities in Kent, London, Suffolk, Surrey and Sussex” (Local History)

“Mrs. Teague has made these people come alive for me whilst I read of their lives. She has obviously researched this book well, covering a great number of sources… she weaves (her material) into an easily read narrative and…this book is an inspiration to us all” (Kent Family History Society Journal)
