Hi Again

Bourne Passage ran between Bourne Road and All Saints Street - it was a continuation of Roebuck Street, but obviously a passage rather than a street.

Incidentally I have a picture of Union Row and a copy of the Official map that was used by the then planning dept to show all the demolition areas especially Bourn Passage..   They are to big to post on here, but if you send me you e-mail by private message, I will send you a copy

Hi Artifis

The council minutes show that a compulsory purchase order was made on the 23rd March 1934 for 8 Union Row as part of the Bourne Clerance.  Bourne Passage was also part of that scheme but later in 1936/37.  Unfortunately the war intervened, so after some demolition things were left till late 1950's and the 1960's

Very sorry

Sussex / John Bussey, 1796 Lewes
« on: Tuesday 02 June 15 14:16 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone

Received this email from france - anyone out there who can help?

Hi, I'm trying to find the John Bussey, b 1796 Lewes, the eldest son of Richard Bussey and Ann Bish. What I'm hoping for is baptismal records for John Bussey, 1796, Lewes
 and other family members
So any help or advice you can give me will be much appreciated as I live in France.
 Could I also trouble you for a wee bit more, I'm new to searching parish registers, a lot of my Bussey Family originated in Sussex parishes Newhaven, Lewes, Glynde, West Firle, Alfriston, and presumably they all had different parish records.
