Jas Butcher (James Cross Butcher) is my 2x great grandfather as listed in the Bagshaw's Directory for 1847. I'm fairly certain this is the same person, as the "Man of Kent" is given as the birth place for one of his daughters, both the 1841 and 1851 census gives his occupation as Licensed Victualler and they lived in and around Gravesend. *
