Sorry to pick up an old thread.

I've been tracing Longhurst ancestors in Ewhurst/Ockley and have a detailed construction of the tree for descendants of John Longhurst d 1574, but earlier than that I cannot go. I've seen references on this site to Longhurst births and marriages back to late 1400s. Can someone tell me the sources for these? (I have reviewed the Ockley/ Abinger/ Wotton/ Ewhurst parish registers)

Kia ora

Send me a private message and I will send you what I have.   I do have longhursts going back to 1450 or thereabouts.  But to be frank I do not have references for them but some interesting stuff on the LONGHURST, SPOONER (Peryer, Diggins, Ayhurst, Collins, Burchat, Redford) 1476-1671 to DENDY.

I am also interested in receiving the tree you have.  I have wills in my document which is not at this stage a tree and is far from finished.

Is this the John you are referring too:
John Longhurst 1515 married Amy Diggins in 1537 at St Margaret, Ockley, Mole Valley District, Surrey.  John and Amy had 15 children:  William Longhurst June 1537, Edward Longhurst 24 July 1539-1575, Thomas Longhurst, 16 February 1540-25 January 1623, Julyane Longhurst 27 January 1542-1575, Henry Longhurst 1545-5 December 1547, Hugh Longhurst 7 May 1546-1575, Agnes Longhurst 25 January 1547-1575, Thomas Longhurste, 26 March 1548, Christopher Longhurst 6 January 1549-1575, Mathew Longhurst 16 April 1552, 1555 Jul 8 Richard Longhurst 8 July 1555, Christina Longhurst 20 April 1556, Margaret Longhurst 1557, Alice Longhurst 1561, Walter Longhurst 28 September 1562-16 October 1632 (married Agnis Astone 5 August 1571).
The above were all registered at St Peter & St Paul in Ewhurst Surrey or at St Margaret in Ockley, Surrey.
John Longhurst died 3 March 1574 in Ewhurst but buried in Ockley, Surrey. 
Amy Longhurst (Diggins) died in 1574 in Ockley.
