My gx3 grandfather : John Usher 1831

JOHN USHER was born in Wychling (transcribed as Witchland on the census), Kent in circa 1831 (source : 1881 census). He was a farm labourer on the 1881 census, living at Nepicar A Cottage, Wrotham, Kent, with his wife and children.

He married SARAH ? before 1861, judging by the ages of their children. She was born circa 1834 in Wormshill, Kent (source : 1881 census).

John was robbed by one of his employees in 1870 - three week's hard labour seems like a tough sentence for a 2 shilling handbill though !
