West Dean is closest, Buxted is further away towards Hayward’s Heath but worth exploring all records  :)

Born England, parish unknown . Surely you would  know where you were from if you were an aristocrat  ;D maybe that’s what prompted the ‘Oh dear’  ;D ;D

Just a thought…

I was looking at a Sussex Parish register, early 1700’s and noticed two families baptising children and as an example were noted as Mr Thomas Jones and Mrs Jane Jones.  Mr John Jones and Mrs Anne Jones, whilst all the others were simply son or daughter of Tom Smith and Joan.  When I had a look at the Jones families it seems they had some wealth, land owners, employers and not your ordinary ag labs. So would seem to me they have been given their Mr and Mrs from respect or to denote a higher class or station in life. :-\ :-\

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: gt grandfathers offence

‘gaming’ could mean gambling, I had a young lad arrested and fined for a gaming offence, playing cards for money on the street.


I had two burials about five years apart. Both were Elizabeth widow of John. It would have been a help if the vicar had recorded Snr or Jnr after the surnames as father John and son John both had wives named Elizabeth   :-\ :-\ :-\

Frequently asked questions
Is there any way I can view the 1921 Census for free?
Anyone will be able to view the digital images of the 1921 Census of England and Wales for free on the premises at The National Archives at Kew upon release on 6 January 2022 (00:01 GMT).
In addition, the 1921 Census will be free to view via Findmypast at the Manchester Central Library, on St Peter’s Square, Manchester, supported by the Manchester and Lancashire Family History Society helpdesk and the Archives+ Team, and at the National Library of Wales, in Aberystwyth.

That's answered that then  :)

 :-\  I wonder ?

Dr Valerie Johnson, Director of Research and Collections at The National Archives, said: ‘I am pleased to announce these regional hubs for the north of England and for Wales which, along with our own hub at Kew, will offer free online access to the 1921 Census via the Findmypast website.

‘We understand the excitement and anticipation of this release and, by making the census available online, we are hugely increasing its accessibility. These hubs will offer an important alternative to those not able to log on from home. Without commercial partnerships of this kind, and the associated charges, the alternative for everyone would be to work through the papers themselves at The National Archives.

What do you make of that ?  Only mentions free access

Oh yes, RTL, however old a post is, it may well have some interest to someone at a later date.  Family history never goes out of date  ;D

Absolutely! I’ve been going over a couple of old threads from 2004 and 2018, both hold information relevant to two of my family names  :D
