Overseers' account books survive for Milton next Sittingbourne from 1671, and these show weekly payments of relief being made to a Widow GALLEHAWK (with various spellings) from May 1671 to April 1674. For the following year, April 1674 - April 1675, similar payments are shown being made to "Widdowe LONG als GOLLYHAWKE", and from then until April 1679 to a Widow LONG. As no further reference was made to a Widow GALLEHAWK after 1675, all these entries seem likely to relate to the same person, and would tie in well with with the Sittingbourne marriage in 1660. However, whilst the Sittingbourne registers clearly show Anthony's wife's forename as Anne, the Milton registers equally clearly show the parents of Henry (G1.3) and Joan (G1.4) to be Anthony and Elizabeth, so there would seem to be an error somewhere - either in the original records or in the conclusions I have drawn from them.

MARRIED (2) (see note 3. below)
13 May 1768, Lowestoft SFK, by licence

(Anthony a widower of Milton KEN, Margaret a widow of Lowestoft)
to

Margaret SMITH née ? MICKLEBURGH ?
married (1): ? John SMITH, 9 Apr 1758, Lowestoft SFK ?
 

1. It may not have been this Anthony GALLEHAWK (G1.1.3.1.3) who married Jane SINGLETON in Newcastle in 1768, and the register entry does not show if Anthony was a bachelor or widower (both were given as of that chapelry). However, it seems plausible, as a "Jane GALLIHAWKE" was buried in Lower Halstow 18 Sep 1829, aged 83, which would make her much the same age as Anthony.

2. See note below under family of John GALLEHAWK (G1.1.3.4)

3. It may not have been Anthony GALLEHAWK (G1.1.3.1) who married Margaret SMITH in Lowestoft in 1768, but he seems the most likely candidate. However, if it was, then it would appear that he remarried before his first wife had died. It may be of relevance that I have not yet found his burial.

John GALLEHAWK (G1.1.3.4.3)
(see note below)
bapt: 8 Oct 1758, Milton next Sittingbourne KEN
buried: ? 2 Dec 1828, Lower Halstow KEN, aged 71 ?

Diana GALLEHAWK (G1.1.3.4.6)
bapt: 22 Nov 1767, Milton next Sittingbourne KEN
married: Charles CLARKE, 13 Jul 1786, Milton next Sittingbourne KEN
 

I cannot be sure that it was this John GALLEHAWK (G1.1.3.4.3) who married Mary SHILLING in 1785 and was buried in 1828, and that it was his cousin John GALLEHAWK (G1.1.3.1.4) who was buried in 1760 - it could have been the other way round. However, based on the names of the children of the marriage, and the age given at the 1828 burial, I think it is perhaps more likely to have been as I have given it.
