Thank you.

    Are you one who visited Ninfield a few years ago also researching the family? Our history society (Ninfield Local History Group) organised a meeting. You should contact them on facebook or their website to see what they may have.

    Happy to help Todd. As you mentioned the “Battle” area, do you know where specifically you are researching? Battle and District History Society also have extensive records, as do many of the surrounding villages. What do you have in the 1780’s for the Sargent family in Sussex? That may help set in motion places to visit, things to do etc.. Regards, Kevin

    Again, thank you very much for the assistance. What I know, is my ancestor John Sargent was born in Hastings/Battle abt 1782. John Sargent was married to Susannah Luff on 6 Jul 1805 at the parish of Beckly. His father and his grandfather name was also John Sargent, both farmers from the surrounding area. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
