Thank you - looks like something I need to invest in  :)

Thank you so much, you're all stars.

I have spent so much time looking for this family on the 1861 census - I guess the transcriber had a hard time deciphering the handwriting! 

The birth place for Susan's husband James Brown (full name John James Brown) has been transcribed as Pmoted.  Looks a bit like Prinsted to me - I don't suppose that means anything to anyone?  The 1871 census just says he was born in Essex, no town given and I haven't found him him 1851 (wasn't with his wife and family).

Thank you for the baptism info Sue, can I ask where you found that? I would like to see if I can find out more, was it from the SEAX website?

Thank you Mark, that map is really interesting.

Thanks again, I haven't had much experience with Essex research so just learning all the place names.


Essex / Norland House
« on: Thursday 08 February 18 17:50 GMT (UK)  »

The 1851 census shows my 3rd gt grandmother (Susan Brown nee Hallsey)'s birthplace as Norland House, Essex.

I can't find any mention of this place on the internet, I just wondered if anyone was familiar with the place name at all?  She married in 1843 in Orsett before moving to Kent.  I would like to find a birth for her.

Many thanks


Sussex / Re: Thomas Whiting born Handcross

Thank you for all the replies - very kind of you all.

I have the info on his wife Sarah Norris and on him going forward from his marriage.

I have seen the website and it is very interesting but it's always good to see the actual records yourself rather than make a speculative tree (I'm not suggesting the tree on the website is speculative).

I think I will pencil in his parents as William and Hannah and keep looking for confirmation.  In the meantime I will take a look at the tree on Family Search and at the Thomas born in Newington.

Many thanks again  :)

Thank you for the reply.  He married Sarah Rachael Norris 2 Nov 1835 at St Mary Newington.

Someone on Ancestry has his date of birth as 2 Nov 1803 but I don't know where this info is sourced from.

Do you know if Slaugham baptisms are online (I have tried the obvious big sites) or if there was a non-conformist church there at all? 

Many thanks

Sussex / Thomas Whiting born Handcross

I'm trying to establish the parents of Thomas Whiting (sometimes spelled Whiteing).

The 1851,61 & 71 census's all indicate that he was born 1803/04 in Handcross.  The 1881 census shows him as being born in Brighton.

He may have been a non-conformist, I'm not sure.  I have been unable to find a baptism for him online and don't have much experience researching Sussex records.

Many thanks in advance for any help.  :)

Thank you Dawn, I was wondering how to go about this as didn't really want to post my email address on here!

Drop me a message Peter if you want some more info on Roseanna.  She was a very interesting lady.  :)

Hi Peter,

I have a lot more information on Roseanna Drew since I last posted about her.  If you would like to email me I am happy to share.  What line does your wife decend from?  I am descended from Roseanna's son George Freemantle.

As stated by Jonw65, Rosanna's father was noted as William Rolls.  Her mother Martha also had other illegitimate children and spent her whole life in and out of workhouses.  Fortunately, Rosanna managed to make a better life for herself.

Let me know your email address if you would like to know more and I can invite you to my tree on Ancestry.

I did vote for NWN when British Newspaper archives first began, I no longer have a subscription but I will encourage a couple of people I know who do, to vote!
