Colin Fraser:

Hello, I'm coming over to stay a while in May 2019. A branch of my family, Thompson, were from Burwash / Heathfield / Warbleton. Incl. Joseph & Kezia, David & Henrietta, George David & Eliza Ann, Charles Percival & Mercy, my grandad Charles William who came to Australia. Earliest couple born in the 1780s through to grandad born 1911.
Would be grateful for any news to help flesh out my family research. Thanks.

Trying to Trace Family

15th September 2013

Gina Coles:


My family - named Gibbs - were born in Heathfield around the turn of the century and some of them worked at the Heathfield Hotel, which I believe in now demolished. My grandmother and her siblings - named Elsie May, Ava, twins Charles and William, were the children of Charles Gibbs and they lived in a little cottage quite near the village school, where they all attended. I believe my great-grandfather was a builder.
If anyone has any information I'd love to hear from you.

Cornwell and Cornwall Families

4th December 2011

Caroline Lancaster:

I've been researching some Cornwell and Cornwall families in the Heathfield area, so if you are researching your family history and have Cornwell / Cornwall ancestors I may be able to help.
Robert Cornwell born 1794 in Warbleton, later lived in Heathfield, is of particular interest to me.
Best wishes
