Early Generations in England

1. Edward Harnett - b: 1566, d: 1637, buried 7 Jul 1637 at St Laurence, Ramsgate, Kent Co, England; m1: 26 Jul 1591 at St Laurence, Thanet, Kent Co, Eng, Mary Lytherer (Lytheer), d: 1630, bur. 6 May 1630; m2: 29 Jul 1634, Ann Holman, d: 1641/42, bur. 19 Feb 1642 . Edward appears to have lived his entire life at Kent Co, England. He is the earliest ancestor of the Harned family in America who can be fixed with some certainty. It is likely that he or one of his ancesters removed from Ireland to Kent Co prior to 1591. Many Harnett descendants remain in and around Kent Co today, and there is a Harnet Street in Sandwich.
