Battle in East Sussex Town Guide

Issac Veness


I am tracing the Veness tree for my Nephew and am not sure of dates from Ancestry that people have put on their tree’s. I have a Thomas Veness(b:1779) married to Grace Waghorn and his father was Joseph (b:1732) and married to Mary Fletcher(b:1732)and then Joseph father as Issac Veness(b:1705) and married to Mary Eleanor Russell. It is here I am confused with dates, ie: dob and marriage date. John

    I’m a direct descendent of Isaac Venice (1706-1766). My work is supported by my 3rd Great Grandfather, John Veness (1798-1850) of Deptford, London.
    He wrote sketchy of the Veness family tree, which can be traced to Isaac Venice (F.3.of Colbyes and Darvill Hill Farms in Brightling). He wrote about the Veness family and mentioned Thomas Veness, one of his Uncles who came to Deptford and how he owned the Powder Mill in Battle. Sussex archives support my evidence work.
    Isaac and Mary Venice – issues:-

    g.1. ISAAC baptised 31 March 1727 at Brightling, married Ann Goldsmith 9 April 1751 at Brightling. He was buried 29 Dec 1803 at Warehouse, Kent and had 11 issues all born at Battle.

    g.5. THOMAS baptised 22 Sept 1734 at Brightling and died 28 May 1813 at Deptford, London, unmarried, a Gentleman.
