Does anyone have any info about the Cossum family 1700-1800 living in Northiam/Hastings, Sussex. They were drapers and mercers.
Thanks

The IGI has a submitted record for:

Francis Cossum
chr 24 Aug 1763
Northiam
Father: Richard
Mother: Elizabeth
(this may be the wrong couple but possibly related in some way)

and extracted record for:
Richard Cossum = Elizabeth Tress
19 Nov 1751
Bodiam

Not sure if it's the same Richard and Elizabeth

Yes, it is the right couple I typed John instead of Richard so it should read Richard and Elizabeth Cossum.
Thanks

Do you already have much information about the family?

I take it you already have the following two children with Richard and Elizabeth as parents:
Mary 1773
Sarah 1771
both chr St Clements Hastings.

There are some marriges for Mary and Sarah Cossums but I'm not sure if any tie in time wise to these two girls. Can't see a marriage for Francis.

Of course the IGI may not be complete and I haven't tried the new search which may give more choices.  :)

No I didn't. The children I have are:
Elizabeth 1754, John 1756, Richard 1758, Ann 1760, Francis 1763 all Baptised in Northiam. There is quite a gap between 1763 and 1771 so presume more children were born to Richard and Elizabeth.
