Walters from Crowborough, Sussex
« on: Monday 11 March 19 16:02 GMT (UK) »
My Gt Grandfather was James Walters b 14 Aug 1846 at Rotherfield died  21 Oct 1922 Crowborough. Marriage certificate for James gives a wife Charlotte Care b 1852 at Withyham, father as James Walter (no s) b 1802 Withyham and mother Maria Botting b 1812. from here records are very few and far between. Looking for any help with this side of my family
Thanks Nigel

Hi and a warm welcome to Rootschat!

Can you tell us where and when they married? I suspect not England as our marriage certs don't give mothers name nor years of birth of parents!


When did they emigrate?   And when did they return (I see died Crowborough)?


Have you got them on censuses while they were in this country?
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

And JAmes Walter age 3, on 1851
