I know from Harriet Kingsnorth's record of birth that her parents were John and Sarah Kingsnorth who was married in Staplehurst.
I've managed to find a record for John Kingsnorth and Sarah Marlow's marriage at All Saint's Staplehurst on 22 May 1786.
Interestingly, I have also found a record of a John Kingsnorth marrying an Ann Lavender in 1770. There is also a burial record of Elizabeth, a daughter of John Kingsnorth in 1782 and a burial record of Ann Kingsnorth in 1784. It's possible this was John Kingsnorth's first marriage, but I can't be sure at this stage if it's the same John Kingsnorth. Judging from the parish records (as well as other primary sources) that was a popular family name.
