2. Re: [SFHG] Can anyone help me? [1]
Terry, Page 123 is part of an item submitted by Michael J Burchall, and the other item was written by Jenny McKechnie, I fear that there is little to interest you in either article though. Michael refers to a chap who died in 1236 and Jenny refers to a lady who emigrated in 1836.

IF you put 'higgler' into google or similar you shoudl get soem good descriptions - here is the link to one I found: "Higgler's Licences July 1758 - April 1772 This is an index of 289 licences registered at the West Kent Quarter Sessions. The last licence was in April 1772. Most say that the higgler "qualified for a common badger, lader, kidder, carrier, buyer and seller of fowls, butter, cheese, eggs, fish and other dead victuals (except game

To the SFHG List: I would be grateful for help with the following. Early research showed that my 7Ggrandfather William Burrell was born in 1628 in Cuckfield and that he married Anne Fairehall in Cuckfield on 14 April 1655. However, now I see that the Sussex Marriage Index also shows a marriage between William Burrell Cuckfield hus and Ann Fayrehall otsp at Lindfield on 7 January 1655. I would be grateful for an explanation. I am also stumped over his mother! Everywhere I look I find his father shown as Wi
7. Re: [SFHG] Fw: noakes' of udimore 1800s [1]
re NOAKES in the Udimore/Hastings area - one does have to remember that there were good number of people with the surname Noakes in the area during this period, so do not assume all must be close relatives (they may well be distant relatives of course!) One of my great-great grandmothers was born Sarah Noakes, baptised 12th December 1832 in Hastings, daughter of Sarah and Edward Noakes. She was the 1st daughter of Edward's 2nd marriage. He married Elizabeth Hide 3/11/1823, Sarah Hide 15/7/1832, Elizabet

Dear Listers Is anyone able to help me with my brick wall. I have a MARY ANN HOUNSELL born in Battle, East Sussex around 1817. Her marriage in Lewes on 30.9.1850 to THOMAS BERKSHIRE states her father was JAMES HOUNSELL foreman at the Powder Mill, Crowhurst (nr Battle). I have not been able to find any record of Mary Ann's baptism in Battle. Does anyone have any record of either James or Mary Ann, who James wife was, and did he have any other children. Is there anything in the census, o

Hello. I have a JOHN MOON sentenced to death at Lewes Assizes in 1829 for the theft of 18 sheep; the sentence was commuted to life imprisonment and transportation. I would like to know John's age; I believe that he was born after 1786. I would also like to know where he came from and as much else as possible about him. It is possible that he was the son of JOHN and HANNAH MOON who I am told were married 1787/8 although I cannot find any evidence of this marriage; it is not in the SMI. Any help or sug
11. Re: [SFHG] Property called Fogdens Barn in Bury,Sussex [1]
Have you tried the tithe maps at all? They are likely to be earlier but if the name is the same and you can link it to the Apportionments and find the owners and/or tenants, that may help. The maps will be at West Sussex Record Office I would think and also at Kew. I think WSRO are working on getting the maps digitized but I don't know that for certain. I am sure someone else on the list will know more. perhaps a search of directories might help too - you can search some on-line at: http://www.historica
12. Re: [SFHG] Britt Family [1]
Graham, Thank you for that, I am still not fully convinced that this is the actual person I am looking for as up until now I have never seen any records for my Albert Britt having a second name of Henry so until I have proved this is the same fellow I am a bit reluctant to send to the Coldstream Guards for his records as they charge #30 which is a lot of money if it is the wrong person.

13. Re: [SFHG] Fw: JAMES [1]
Heather, Following on from Jackie's previous e-mail, I think the death must be your Robert. There is a marriage in BMD in 1860 for Midhurst for another Robert James, but he seems to have been born in Linchmere and appears in both the 1851 and 1861 Census. Unless you have other information I think this will probably close this line of enquiry. Regards, Brian Denn -----Original Message----- From: [] On Behalf Of Heather Sent: 03 January 200

I too have emailed the RO. I find it worrying that they say the JPEG version of the maps is also not viewable on a Mac. By extension, that would mean it's also not viewable with Linux, or any other OS. Frankly, that's preposterous. Assuming, that is, that the file really is a JPEG, and not s

20. [SFHG] Worth Mentioning!! [1]
The above title was on page 416 of the latest journal, and I thought, oh goody, this looks like one of my husband's line. His NYE's come from the Medway area of Kent. But, who is he? Yes, he is there in Worth, as described. In Tent, is the address, and it has William NYE age 46 Chimney Sweep, with wife Sarah 30 and daughter Elizabeth age 15. So next I go to the 1861 census and there is William living at Horne, Surrey and described as being born Horne and age 56 as a Chimney Sweep. But this time

22. Re: [SFHG] BUDD family name [1]
Margaret Rose, Following the Budd line, the IGI shows that William Budd's parents were Richard Budd and Charlotte Burchell, married 15 June 1802 in Oving. (I assume you have been tracing the marriages because you don't mention them.) IGI shows several candidates for Richard's birth but none in Sussex around the right time - prob about 1780. Perhaps the Richard bapt 22 Sep 1782 might be the best candidate for your ancestor because his father's name was Richard and because Meonstoke is closer to the Susse
