Overseers' account books for Milton next Sittingbourne survive from 1671, and show weekly payments of relief to a Widow GALLEHAWK (spelt variously) from May 1671 to April 1674. From April 1674 - April 1675 similar payments were made to "Widdowe LONG alias 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 Anne, widow of Anthony GALLEHAWK (G1). However, whilst the Sittingbourne marriage entry clearly shows Anthony's wife's forename as Anne, the Milton baptism entries equally clearly show the parents of Henry (G1.3) and Joan (G1.4) as 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.

Although I have indicated above that it was John GALLEHAWK (G1.1.3.4.3) who married Mary SHILLING in 1785, and his cousin John (G1.1.3.1.4) who was buried in 1760, I can't rule out the possibility that it was the other way round.
