About Sophia Nye

She never married and lived with her parents on their farm until their deaths.

After her parents death she and her sister Ann continued to live on the family farm and to operate it with the help of their cousin Henry who was the son of Harriet Nye daughter of Richard Nye and Elizabeth Avis. At the time the 1871 census was taken Ann was in Maidstone visiting with their brother Thomas and his family so Sophia was listed as the head of the household in Hadlow. She was farming 90 acres and employing 5 men and 2 boys. Cousin Henry continued to be the manager of the farm. Rhoda Dedman was visiting, she later married Henry.
