Cheesman family
« on: Wednesday 18 July 18 23:26 BST (UK) »
Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the Cheesman family of Brighton ? I believe one side had a Jewellers and one side had a Glass and China shop in North Rd. I believe one of them called William worked for the Kings in the early 1800's at the Brighton Pavilion.

I have Cheesemans/Cheesmans connections to Brighton tracing back to Berkshire on my other half's side of the tree.

It would be great if you could post some specifics to see if were are chasing the same family.

I have a few Williams but cant remember the specifics and I don't have my notes here to check, will have to get back to you.

From memory I think there were marriages to the surnames Woolford and Monger amongst others.

Hopefully were are looking at the same family


Lanarkshire-Reid,Bennett/Bennard,Stewart, Miller,Brown,Jamieson,McGregor,Davidson, Paterson,Anderson,Allister,Renwick,Shearer.
Arbroath-Smith,Adam,Garland,Esplin,Davdison, Fender,Moncur
Ireland-Williamson,Galbraith,McIlhagga,Adrain. Bennard.
