Thank you for that Joanne,

I did get some SAXBY entries from Christine but, come to think of it, that was probably a few years ago now - though it seems like last week. Time flies when you are researching. I will contact her again and see what she has on the database now.

I'm pretty sure there is mention of some of the Laughton SAXBYs on the Access to Archives website. Have you checked that out for SAXBY, BLACKMAN and ATTREE?

Happy hunting,
Helen, NSW, Australia

A long shot, but I've been trying to find burials for these 4th great grandparents for years. If anyone comes across burials for John and Rose SAXBY during trawls through parish registers after 1795 I'd be most grateful to hear of it. They seem to have vanished into thin air from Rye.

John might have witnessed a marriage there in 1799 and was possibly born in 1747. Rose was baptised in 1749 and her name might stand out in a burial register. Ages at burial is what I hope to find out one day!

Dear Helen,
You might try the Tombstone Inscription database (constantly growing). You can ask Christine Payne for a print out of all SAXBYs in Sussex. It costs a few pounds (as memory serves, variable depending upon how many cemetaries?) but my requests have been well worth it! See the SFHG web Site: http://www.sfhg.org.uk/index.html#IN
Another tack might be to try Maresfield and/or Ditchling, where my SAXBYs hailed from. James SAXBY (1798 Maresfield- 1867 Wartling, ), son of James (from where?) and Ann, married Mary BLACKMAN (but where?). Eliza SAXBY married William BLACKMAN (1797 Wartling-1837 Wartling, Surgeon, my great great grandfather) at Petworth in 1830. William and Mary were brother and sister. Eliza may have been James SAXBY's sister baptised in 1807 in Maresfield. John SAXBY (1745 Laughton-1787 Ditchling, of Laughton Place, Yeoman of Ripe, Laughton and Ditchling) married Sukey ATTREE in 1774 in Ditchling. Sukey ATTREE was Mary and William's first cousin. I have yet to ascertain the relationship, if any, between John and James and Eliza.
Hope this helps!
