red mail 47 Newhaven Street , Brighton
I would be very interested in obtaining any information regarding the Male / female family members residing at the above address in the 1930 - 1940 time span. Any help would be gratefully appreciated . Thank you
Any information from the descendants of Alfred Arnold De Lacy and Frances Eliza Allen. A child was born out of wedlock in 1918 Marie Frances De Lacy Allen in Brighton who later went on to marry Alan J Durrant. I can trace the family down to the present day with a Robert Daniel West but my quest is to find what became of Frances Eliza Allen who last appears on an electoral list in 1928 before disappearing and leaving Marie with her Father? She does not divorce her first husband Thomas Allen to remarry either but no trace of her death can be found. Many thanks, Julie p.s. Is the Brighton area behind other parts of the country in making information available online?
I am trying to find information on Frances Eliza ALLEN nee HALE born abt 1882 (my Great Grandmother). Known address in 1913 was 46 North Gardens, Brighton when she gave birth to a son Thomas ALLEN. Her own father died just the month before (William HALE) in a boarding house at 44 Sydney Street Brighton. She later resided at 41 Frederick Street in February 1917 when she gave birth to a daughter who died in infancy. From thereon she disappears. Her husband returned to London with his son in 1917 and Frances was thought to have remained in Brighton. Many thanks, Julie

red mail TIMMINS George Joseph
I am interesting in finding some information on George Timmins. George was born in 1903 at Wombwell, Yorkshire. George's parents were John TIMMINS and Nancy TROMANS. Around the time of his death in 1951 he was in hospital in Hove Brighton. He married Laura GUEST but they later divorced. Oral family history tells that he had several cobbler/shoe shops in England but I haven't been successful in finding this out. Was it in Yorkshire or Brighton? If you have any information and happy to share I would appreciate it.
red mail Elizabeth Gilling 1838-Unknown married William Ashley
Elizabeth seems to come from Brighton originally, her parents being Ellen and Francis with Ellens surname as yet unknown. She married William Ashley on September 14, 1857 St John of Jerusalem, South Hackney. Hes listed as the son of another William Ashley. In the 1901 England Census we have her as Elizabeth Ashley. Age: 62 Spouse: William Ashley Birth Place: Brighton, Sussex, England Civil Parish: Camberwell This census in which she is living in Camberwell London seems to be the last census in which we have her. Also living at this address are Arthur Ashley 33 Albert Ashley 31 Edith Ashley 20 Joseph Ashley 33 Winnifred Ashley 15 And her husband William, 65. He also seems to have died before the next census. Any help getting Elizabeths mothers maiden name would be much appreciated Thankyou!
red mail Jackson family, Brighton
I am searching for any relatives. I understand I have/had a lot of cousins in Brighton. My name is James Brian JACKSON, born 1945 in Edinburgh, mother is Daisy Catherine JACKSON of Roundhill Crescent, Brighton and was living there during 1945. She was a children's nurse. Her husband was in the army and returned from the war in 1945. That is all I know about him. I have a brother, David JACKSON who is a little older than me and was in the navy after WW2. We both went to school at Middle Street Junior School, Brighton, I was there from around 1950 to 1955 then went on to Brighton, Hove and East Sussex Grammar School for Boys. My mother gave me up for fostering around July in 1945 to Fred and Ellen (Nellie) WARREN of Norfolk Square, Hove. My natural father was James MORRIS who was in the Royal Australian Air Force during WW2. Knowing so little about my family has proved a real headache in trying to trace any members. If anyone can shed any light on this puzzle I shall be truly grateful.

Hey guys, Was wondering whether anybody could help with this particular query. Elizabeth married ASHLEY, William, 14 Sep 1857  St John of Jerusalem, South Hackney William Ashley and her father is listed as francis whilst his is listed as William also. Elizabeth was originally from the Brighton area as per her answers on the census records where she turns up as Mrs Elizabeth Ashley, though her and William married in Hackney and stayed living in Hackney.

Emma & Charles John Dance
Emma Lewis married Charles John Dance at the Wesleyan chapel on Norfolk Road in Brighton in 1885. Charles was a widower with children. He worked as a hotel porter but subsequently seems to have worked as a bedding porter or upholsterer at the county hospital (I don't know what that means). Charles died in 1915. Emma died in 1918 in her 50s. They had 3 children, one dying as a baby. I think their son George Lewis Dance worked on the railways. I'm trying to confirm whether Emma is one of my Lewis's. If so, she would have been born at Eastnor in Herefordshire in 1861 to William Lewis, usually described as a sawyer, and his wife Mary. If anyone researching this family or has any information about their descendants, I'd like to hear from you. In particular, I'm trying to identify some people in old photos. Thank you

red mail Looking for Peggy Jones from Brighton, Sussex
Peggy JONES was the childhood/school friend of my mother, Joan PRINCE during the 1930's in Brighton. Mom lived above her father's tea shop J O PRINCE at the corner of Edward & Tillstone. In 1940 she and Peggy JONES signed up with the RAF together. During the war mom lost contact with Peggy. She believes that she did marry, but doesn't know more than that. Mom moved to Canada at the end of the war and has always wondered what became of her friend. If she happens to still be living, she will be in her 90's. Any information regarding her would be appreciated as I would love to be able to share it with my mom.
John Goddard and Emily Jones
John Henry Goddard, born 1870 Brighton, married Emily Jones at St John's, Brighton on 25th November 1889. On the 1901 Census, John and Emily were living at Warple Way, St Faiths, Wandsworth. The census says that Emily was born in Bristol c1870. On their marriage certificate, Emily's father, William Jones, is listed as a hawker. Does this mean that he was a Romany? I would like to know further details of this family as I cannot find birth details for Emily Jones and would like to know her mother's name. Does anyone know when the Jones family moved to Sussex?

red mail Effie FORD, born 1877, Enfield.
Effie was a daughter of Joseph Ford and Annie and was one of six children. She died on 9th December, 1975 at 9, Stanford Avenue, Brighton, which is now a care home. In 1881 she lived in Welwyn and in 1891 in Croydon. She was my grand-aunt. Her story is a sad one and I would very much like to know what happened to her as I have been told that she was committed to some kind of asylum when she was quite young as she suffered from "religious mania". I have only recently found this out. Whatever may or may not have been wrong with her, she lived to a grand old age. I do understand that any issue of mental health was a taboo back in the early 1900s and I also understand that people could be committed for all sorts of problems which are not considered to be taboo or even material today. But I knew other members of her immediate family and subsequent generations and she was never mentioned, I never even knew of her existence, although I have recently found out that my father certainly did. It seemed that she was shrouded in secrecy. 1975, when she died, was only 40 years ago, I am wondering if anybody knew her whilst she lived in Brighton. Was anyone nursing at that address at that time? Did anyone go to her funeral? Can anybody tell me what "religious mania" was in, say, 1910-1920? Perhaps she had hallucinations .. or maybe a 'road to Damascus' experience. The family was not particularly religious and nobody else suffered from anything unusual medically speaking. This poor lady probably spent about 60 years of her life shut away and I have recently found out that at least one of her siblings wanted to 'get her out' from wherever she was, but was presumably over-ruled by other family members. Any assistance would be very much appreciated. Kind regards B

Hello, I am looking for more information on a Benjamin Beal born circa 1792. He was born in Cuckfield, Sussex according to the 1851 census, however a bmd search for Benjamin (find my past and ancestry) has failed to find his birth.

Seeking any information about Elizabeth Sarah HUMPHRIES or HUMPHREYS, age unknown. She was the mother of John Laing Humphries born Brighton 1857. She was known to have been occupying rooms at Oriental Place Brighton around this time.

Name may have been mis-spelt? Any help or suggestions appreciated. We have now found the baptism of an Elizabeth Sarah HUMPHREYS at St Nicholas' Brighton in 1833, father George, mother Elizabeth. Also the baptism of a John Humphreys at St Peter's in 1858 with Elizabeth Sarah HumphrEYS given as mother's name but on his birth certificate both names are clearly spelt HumphrIES. Phonectic error?

In 1901 She was at Dyke road Brighton. Baby Charles was bought up by Francis Sandalls and the Lummus household and ended up in Upper Norwood near London. I would like more information about Eunice Smith, I believe she may have stayed single but perhaps had another child called Eunice Ada Smith who was witness to Charles marriage to Rosie May Bramley in 1916.
