Penfolds of Kent

I am still tracing my family tree... have been for a long time... I am decended from John Penfold b appx 1768 and Mary Gooding they were residents in Hawkhurst kent...My G G Grandfather was their son Charles born 1812 Hawkhurst married to Harriet Sone...I understand that John was Romany but have not been able to trace any further back... they probabably came from another county to work on the land in Kent...I have Mary Penfold ( Gooding) in 1841 and 1851 living with her Daughter Benedicta Oliver (Penfold) and her husband Samuel Oliver as a widow...she died in 1853 in Hawkhurst on the death cert it states that she was the widow of John Penfold Agricultural Labourer...John was apparently buried in 1835 in Hawkhurst aged 67....Unfortunatel;y his death was before the 1841 census so there does not seem to be any way of telling whether he was born in the county of Kent or not...The marriage entry for John & Mary doe'snt help either as it just states that they were both residents of the parish of Hawkhurst...So I would appreciate it if there is anyone out there that could help... Many thanks Christine
