    Notes 
    • October 2007: it's not clear whether first name was Harry or Henry. Cliff Minter thinks he may have been baptised Harry in 1792 but by 1827, when his daughter was baptised, he was clearly Henry Minter Rigden, 'a gentleman of Ash next Sandwich'.

      1841 census: at Ratling Court, Nonington, Kent, Henry RIGDEN (45, farmer), Judith RIGDEN (50), Anna RIGDEN (20), John RIGDEN (20), Charles RIGDEN (15), Sarah RIGDEN (15) and Margaret RIGDEN* (8). All born Kent.
      * the identity of Margaret is uncertain. According to Cliff Minter there was a baptism at Ash on 11 May 1827 of a Margaret RIGDEN of Henry and Judith RIGDEN. Perhaps she died and another daughter born about 1833 was given the name Margaret. There's no sign of a Margaret RIGDEN after 1841other than a death registration at Canterbury in Q4 1849 (5/48).

      1851 census (indexed as RISDEN by Ancestry): in Wincheap Street, St Mildred Canterbury, Henry RIGDEN (58, retired farmer, born Wingham), Judith RIGDEN (59, born Wingham), Susan RIGDEN (daughter, 20, born Ash), --- --- [unreadable] NELSON(?) (servant, 21) and a family of lodgers, names unreadable but seemingly a mother and three children.
      Sarah RIGDEN was staying with her brother George (qv).

      1861 census: at 39 Castle Street, St Mildred Canterbury, Henry RIGDEN (69, gentleman, born Wingham), Judith RIGDEN (70, born Wingham), Mary RIGDEN (daughter, 30, born Ash), Susan RIGDEN (daughter, 29, born Ash) and Sarah SALTER (servant, 20)

      1871 census (indexed as RIGDON by Ancestry): in Hawks Lane, St Margaret Canterbury, Henry M RIGDEN (78, gentleman, born Wingham), Judith RIGDEN (80, born Wingham), Sarah HORNE (daughter, widow, 46, born Ash), Mary HORNE (granddaughter, 17, born St Lawrence, Kent) and Jane ORGAR (servant, 21).

      1881 census: at 22 Hawks Lane, St Margaret Canterbury, Henry M RIGDEN (widower, 88, retired farmer, born Wingham), Mary (daughter, unmarried, 52, born Ash) and Ann RICHARDSON (servant, 19).

      Death registered as Henry Minter RIGDEN.
