And a warm welcome to Rootschat from me.

Probably the best starting point would be to pick one ancestor and ask for missing information.  For example:
My grandfather Andrew Anders was born in 1900 in Andover.  He had a sister Annie. Can you help me find his parents?"

There is also a Surname Interests table (click on "surname Interests" 2nd row second column in the brown box near the bottom of the screen).

All the best
Philip
Please help me to help you by citing sources for information.

Hi,

From the 1785 Land Tax Records

Pulborough
Mr Thomas Knight owned and occupied a house
Mr Philip Knight owned a malthouse and a building called Key?
Mr Daniel Knight owned lands called Hoal

New Shoreham

William Fuller occupied a house owned by John Edwards.
William Fuller was also a Riding Officer (I think to do with customs & excise)

Might be of interest!
