Family History

31st December 2019

Stephen Sherwood:

My late Father was born and raised in RYE and now as an old man (77) and living in the USA I would love to find out as much as I can about the family. I do remember an uncle (Frank) and I believe there was another brother who also lived in Rye . Other then that I believe my Father once told me many years ago that his Father who died many years before I was born was once the Major?
I would love to hear from any relatives if there are any still around and also find more about my families history. I also believe there was another brother who was killed in WW1 (Percy). That's all I know.
Thank you to anyone who can help me in my quest

Southenden

31st December 2019

Alexandra Smith:

I have just checked the register of graves in St Peter & St Paul Parish Church Peasmarsh and there are three in the north west quadrant - however, the surname is spelt slightly differently: Southerden. Alice died aged 87 in 1969, Elizabeth (no age given) in 1824 and Thomas (no age given) in 1962. I only have access to grave information, there will be much more in the registers - but they will be in date order rather than name : ( Hope this might be of interest. Best wishes with your search.

Rye Old Bank Neighbours

7th September 2019

Bob Wilcock:

Can anyone help me identify which properties neighbours to Rye Old Bank lived in in 1820? The bank was on the corner of High St and Weest St (it became Lloyds Bank) Next door on one side were Mrs Moneypenny & Daniel Gill in properties owned by John Woollett. On the other side D & P Rhodes and John Barnes' widow. My question is which neighbours were in the High Street, and which in West Street? Thank you.

Tiltman Family Tree

17th August 2019

Louise Broadbridge:

We are the London / Essex branch of the family.

We have just spent a lovely week in Rye, retracing our family footsteps. I am great granddaughter of Cara Tiltman, daughter of Edward Tiltman - born 1858. Ive traced the family tree back to 1520.
If anyone has any information or photographs relating to the Tiltmans, please send them over.
Thanks.
Louise
