Sussex / Looking for the origins of Joane Webb widow of Burwash d1655
« on: Friday 05 June 20 14:16 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I am still trying to track down the origins of the Webb families in Burwash. There is a will of a Joane Webb widow of Burwash 1655 which I am hoping should shed some light on them but I cannot fathom out any connections! I get the feeling that although she is in Burwash, originally she is from somewhere out of Sussex.
There is no burial that I can find for her in Sussex.

Anyway here is the information gleaned from the will:

Her husband must obviously have died before she wrote the will in 1652. I cannot find any marriages on the SMI or elsewhere.

She mentions the following people:
Brother: George Stanford
Dorothy Gower her sister and her sons Thomas, Richard and Elizabeth her daughter

William Gower
Thomas Hayward and brother Richard
William Gaines and his wife Martha
Richard Shoebridge and his children Suzanne and Thomas
Joanne Willet
Katherine Wallis
John Allingham
Elizabeth Colbrand wife of John Colbrand
Thomas Standford and his daughter Joane

Edward, Robert and Nicholas Midhurst from Wittersham Kent.

If anyone is able to shed any light on this I would be grateful.

Afternoon All,

Trying to track down a marriage of William Marchant to Sarah Waters or possibly any other Sarah somewhere around 1790 ish.

Sadly my copy of the SMI is majorly defunct.

Been some time since my SMI worked, can anyone check to see if Harriet Suter married in 1819 in Houghton and whether it was to John Marshall.

Sussex Lookup Requests / Roll of Honour - Glynde Parish Church
« on: Sunday 16 November 14 19:02 GMT (UK)  »
I found out from the British Newspaper Archives that my Grandad and 2 of his brothers appear on the Roll of Honour(WWI)at Glynde. This was news to my Dad and we set off yesterday to find it and take a photo. Sadly, like a lot of churches around that area it was locked due to repeated burglaries and so we couldn't get one.

If anyone lives in the area and is able to get one for me I would be very thankful, it is unlikely I will be able to get there again until next year.

Hi all,

The third word in on the attachment appears a lot in the Will, I am sure it is something easy but my brain is not firing on all cylinders.

'my said ??????? Mary Cox'


Suffolk Lookup Requests / Barham Parish Registers - BARHAM/WILLIAMS
« on: Thursday 29 May 14 08:38 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I am trying to confirm a marriage between Edmund Barham & Charlotte Williams in 1812 in Barham, Suffolk that I found on Ancestry. Confirmation and any extra details would be fanastic.


Carlow / Rathvindon/Rathvinden Estate History
« on: Saturday 26 October 13 12:29 BST (UK)  »
I was wondering if anyone knew of the history of the estate before the McClintocks took over in 1908. My Grandmother (Sarah White) was born on the estate in 1897 and her father used to work there before moving to Ballyknockan somewhere before 1901.


Sussex Lookup Requests / Bexhill Baptisms 1678-1706 - Webb
« on: Saturday 24 August 13 14:32 BST (UK)  »
Afternoon on a somewhat wet day!

The SFHG transcripts do not appear to have this period indexed. Looking at the East Sussex holdings they appear to be available. I was wondering if anyone had a fiche for that period of baptisms and could give me the baptisms of any Webbs.
