This is the story of my paternal grandmother’s family. It is rather scant and we don’t have as many photographs, but it’s more complicated and involves many interesting family lines. They originated in Sussex and most of them remained in the county all of their lives.
The origins of the family in the heart of Sussex, but with so little known about them they have been difficult to trace.
My great great grandparents and their strangely early marriage and difficult early years.
My great grandparents, about whom there is relatively little to say, but where would I be without them?
A seafaring family from Newhaven, I was told, but there’s more to them than that.
The patchy parish records have made these families a little elusive.
