Wilson Picture Tree


The first settled residents in Westwell appear in the 1770′s with Thomas from Little Chart and Henry from Charing both nearby villages to the west of Westwell.
Most of the families did not stay long with descendents moving on to other nearby villages like Challock, Boughton Aluph and the nearby town of Ashford.
