Seeking to make contact with other Porter family genealogical researchers in Battle, East Sussex area. Family tradition states that Porters were from Battle, but all I’ve been able to ascertain so far is that ancestor Edward Porter was born circa 1790/91 in Sussex. IGI states Edward Porter married Sophia Pennells 11 Jan 1831 in Burwash. (Definitely the correct marriage), and by 1841 the Porters were living in Netherfield. At least three of their children were born in the Battle district. Children:George, William, Alfred, Mary, Stephen, Margaret, Harriet, Lois, Julia A. There was also a James Porter who may have been a brother of Edward or son of his by a prior marriage. The Porters emigrated to Vermont, USA circa 1844. Any info. or research suggestions greatly appreciated.
