Many thanks Mark - you're a star. Not sure how they fit in with my lot yet but I'm sure they do somewhere !  ;)

Jane - I had the same thought as you afterwards, probably wasn't the best place to post my message, sorry !  :-[

Thanks Jane  :D

I think this one might be mine :

Ironmonger: Sarah Offen, 3 Norman road west (b.1811, widow with 3 children)

It says the info comes from directories and the 1851 census - could someone (Chris?! ;) ) look and see who else is with her in the 1851 census please? I need the children's names to work out who she is  :-\

Many thanks in advance  :-*

This won't help you at the moment but we might tie up somewhere at some point ;)

I have a WILLIAM DOUCH (born 1868 in Hastings, parents WILLIAM DOUCH and MARY ANN VIDLER) who married into my SANDS line .... which originated in Dallington  ;D

I also have a couple of BONIFACES but I don't think we tie up there.  ;)

Good luck with the search

Thanks Chris - you're a mine of information :)

The frustrating thing is, I used to live just up the road from the Ore Burial Ground (yards away in Rye Road) but that was in the days before I got the family history bug so I never paid any attention  ::) Not so easy now I'm living across the Channel !  :-\ LOL

Sussex / Ore cemetery (Winchelsea Road)

Does anyone know if there are any transcripts or if there are still stones standing in this cemetery?

I'm looking for my great-grandfather who's pretty elusive !  ::)

Alphonso (Alphonse Joseph) DELONNETTE died in 1908 (death registered in January quarter 1908 - district Hastings volume 2b page 8 - on Free BMD) and was buried in Ore cemetery (Winchelsea Road) on February 7th 1908 (Ore burials parish 435/1/5/5 (kindly provided by someone online) -  His age was recorded as 72 and his abode 45 Victoria Avenue, Ore. )

Just wondering if there would be anything else on his headstone ;)

Not sure, but I'll hunt out the link over the weekend (both my little girls have come down sick so I might not get too much computer time though !  ::) )

This could be totally unrelated or they could link in  ;)

I have an ISABELLA JANES SANDS (born 1867) who married a WILLIAM DOUCH (born 1868)  in 1895 in Hastings (his parents were WILLIAM DOUCH and MARY ANN VIDLER). Her parents were from Dallington (for more on this lot, see here ... )

BONIFACE is another name that links in with "my" lot ... a MARY WOOD(S) BONIFACE (born 1792) married HENRY BOURNE (born 1793) in Pevensey but they had lots of links to the Hellingly/Dallington/Upper Dicker crowd (see more here ... )

Have you tried the Boniface Internet Group (or something like that)? It's a huge online group with a huge database and I'm sure they could help you out. If you've never heard of them, let me know and I'll go hunting for the link ;)

Hope this helps,
Cheryl (yes, I actually made it back online ... unbelievable !!!  ;) )
