got it thanks

Ties a few loose ends together

Richard Thompsett had land (tenemented) at Duddleswell 1729-1745

Passes to his son John 1756-1794

in-turn to his son John1795-1824

to Johns Sister Mary -Muddle   1824-24

signed over to her daughter Lydia wife of Thomas Starr 1824-1838 - when they sold and left for Australia

I believe Richard was born in Withyham 1694  and married Mary Saunders at St Michaels Withyham
1720 ?

Cheers

Wondering if it's possible to identify location of the land on which the Tomsett's farmed  near Duddleswell ?

"Then at the Court of the Manor of Duddleswell held on 29 October 1824 it was recorded that John Thomset yeoman of Buxted, who held, all that messuage or tenement, barn, buildings, and 20 acres of land laying around the same, being in the parish of Buxted and abutting the highway leading from Maresfield towards Crowborough on the south, by a Ghyll from the house formerly Thomas Cheesman’s adjoining a place called Old Land Gate on the west, by the lands of the Lord of the Manor on the north part called Newnhams Wood, and by the lands formerly of Robert Pettitt near Browns Brook now belonging to R J Streatfield on the east, and paying a yearly rent of £1 19s 9d to the Lord of the Manor, had died. Mary Muddle came to the court and produced the will of John Thomset,[8] dated the 3 February 1824 and granted probate by the Deanery of South Malling on 31 July 1824, in which he left ‘all my copyhold messuage or tenement, barn, buildings, and farm land, being near Browns Brook in Buxted and now in my own occupation and commonly called Forest Field and holden of the Manor of Duddleswell’ to his sister Mary Muddle, and Mary was admitted to this property on paying a fine of 40s to the Lord of the Manor. At the same court Mary then surrendered this property to be for her use during her natural life and on her death to the use of her daughter Lydia wife of Thomas Starr yeoman of Buxted and her heirs forever. Lydia Starr was admitted to this property on payment of a fine of 40s to the Lord of the Manor. The will of Mary’s brother John Thomset also left Mary any residue of his estate."
