There are trees on Ancestry that have his parents as Thomas Rollason and Hannah Kemp. However, they have his baptism as 25 July 1824 in Ewhurst, East Sussex.

I guess when you move a long way away, you would tend to give your place of birth as the nearest big town (in this case Eastbourne) rather than the specific village.

Tornedo was online earlier -I hope he/she has seen all this and found it useful.
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex
