    I have come across your work in the Veness genealogy. I’m a descendant of Isaac Venice (1706-1766) of Brightling, Sussex. I have noticed Frances Emily Caroline Veness, Emily’s illegitimate daughter at Mountfield, was baptised on 28 Jan 1872. She was born on 10 Jan 1871. (From 1939 register). She mentioned her marriage record with the full name Frances Emily Caroline Veness Farmer (add the surname of Farmer) to Thomas John Veness in Battle district in 1895 (most likely at Register Office, Battle). Her first child was Emily Elizabeth Veness, born in 1895 at Robertsbridge after her mother’s name.
    Emily was baptised on 12 Nov 1854 at Salehurst, the daughter of William Veness & Elizabeth nee Crouch. Her forename adds Elizabeth later. Here is the marriage record – 1873 7 Feb EMILY ELIZABETH & JAMES FARMER, Labourer of Penhurst. Father William, Labourer at Mountfield. Some evidence backup from the census return and link to the familiar of the family name. I hope this helps you to solve the puzzle.

    Thank you so much for your response. It was a great help as I couldn’t confirm whether William Veness was married to Elizabeth Crouch.When I first dabbled in the family tree,I added quite a bit from other peoples trees on Ancestry. I am just starting to sift through it all again. Thanks again for your help.
