red mail Henry Bumstead Spouse Ann Lee Marriage 1824 HASTINGS.
Children were these: Henry Frederick Bumstead 1826 William Bumstead 1828 Eliza Ann Bumstead 1830 Fanny Bumstead 1832 Ellen Georgeana Bumstead 1838 George Augustus Bumstead 1841 In every census Henry says hes a mariner who was born in Hastings, Sussex, and Ann says shes from Warwickshire. Trees have her as Ann Eliza Lee parents Arthur Lee and Phoebe Lancaster although searching their kids baptisms Ann Eliza doesnt turn up to them. Henrys either Henry Bumsted 1807 Hastings, Sussex, England Father: Charles Bumsted Mother: Susanna Or hes this: Henry Honyset Bumsted 1802 Hastings Thomas Bumsted Elizabeth Theres also a Henry Bumstead 1808 Wesleyan,Rye,Sussex,England Father: Thos. Bumstead Mother: Mary My Henry marrying Ann Lee is the only marriage involving a Henry Bumstead so cant eliminate the other Henrys using marriage records. Henry doesnt name a child after any the possible parents and so its really confusing any help would be appreciated.

red mail GREEN, Mary- married with HONEYSET, William.
Would like to have information on Ms Mary Green who married Mr William Honeyset (varying spellings include Honyset, Honneysett, and Honeysett), on the 27 July 1736; they had children together- Mary junior and Sara. Mary (the child Mary) would end up marrying a man with the surname Bumpstead. A child with the name Henry Honeysett Bumstead spelt without the dad's p would come with that later marrying. Don't know anything about Ms Mary Green and Mr William Honeyset (1710- death date unknown) other than that they married at St Clements Hastings and, presumably, died also in Hastings, given that the family residence remains Hastings until a change to Lamberhurst, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, long long long since the child Mary's death- the relocation to Lamberhurst was when all the people mentioned in this particular post were already long dead skeletons. Already have the Marr/g record saved and would like to get some more details, please.
My mum - Joan Field as was, is hoping to find out what has become of her school friends. Do you know them. June Griffiths, June Laid, Janet White, Maria White, Amy Morley, Billy Adams, Joe Joy, Les Mackiver, Johnny Harris, Kenny Harried, Kenny Swindler, Anne Plumb ridge, Dunked Fisher, Marian Gander, George Haywards & June Haywards. If these people were born 1933-1934, please could you contact myself as mum would love to know if these old mates are still around. Pam.
red mail Patterson
Has anyone knowledge of family Patterson residing in Hastings late 1800 early 1900. May have connections to Page or BlaCKMAN FAMILIES AND MAY RESIDED IN oLD tOWN AREA OF hASTINGS
Although Thomas Baxter Mortimer's death certificate shows his birth to be Hastings, Sussex, after years of research I believe this to be incorrect. The informant was the Medical Superintendent of the hospital where he died. I have found a birth for Thomas Mortimer, to a Jesse Mortimer and Sarah, nee Hainsworth (his parents of death certificate), in Bradford, Yorkshire in first quarter of 1839. It is possible the family moved to Sussex when Thomas was small and he grew up there until he went to New Zealand around 1866-1868. He married Susanna (Susan) Jones in June 1874. That family arrived in Australia around 1880-81, as 5th child was born in Sydney in December 1881. I have a birth certificate for a Thomas born to Elias and Jane Mortimer in Hastings in 1843, and curiously Jesse Mortimer of Bradford had a brother Elias. Can anyone confirm these birth summations?
red mail Thomas Smith/Margaret

red mail BRUNSDEN, William, c1769 - Sussex, England-UNKNOWN.
William married Jane at a date unknown, and lived between 1769 in Sussex, and died unknown- though presumably also in Sussex. He had a daughter called Harriett- sometimes spelt Harriott on records. She married Anthony. Who were William's actual parents, please? Cheers.
red mail Harriott Brunsden, anyone know who her actual parents were, please?
She got married to John Reed Harman on 13th December 1823, and then took the name 'Harman'. Amusing with her given name :'). Don't know who Harriet's parents were. With Harman, she had a son called Anthony, and some others. Anthony, with his spouse Ellen Georgina Bumstead, would have Eliza Georgina Lee Harman, the mother to Dorothy May Read, who died in 1975 in a care home in Crawley. Was wondering whether anybody knew who Harriet's actual parents were, please? What seems the actual case on various genealogy sites is that BRUNSDEN have been active in the Hastings area quite some time... Cheers!

Ida Marion Hooper born 1882 in Hastings Sussex can anyone help please?
red mail Anthony Harman and Ellen Georgeana Bumstead
Hail comrades, I'm trying to search details of the above named people, who lived and died in Hastings; they had a daughter called ELIZA GEORGINA LEE HARMAN who was christened on 5th October 1680(thereabouts). Eliza Georgina Lee Harman would die in Royal Tumbridge Wells, Kent, where she had a daughter called Dorothy May Read, who would become Dorothy May Harwood and then die in Crawley in 1975, leaving three kids- Claire, who was adopted and raised as Brand in Saffron Walden , Essex, and Georgina and, also, David, who died I think in 2003 Margate. I can't track any more details on this side (the Harman Bumstead side) than A Harman and E G Bumstead; seemingly, they had no recorded Ancestors- so I assume they were either Jews, who adopted those last names, or they just had almost no official paperwork. Regardless, I was hoping someone could kindly provide more information comcerning Anthony Harman and Ellen Georgiana Bumstead (Harman). Thank you in advance.
red mail Howe, Robert
I am attempting to trace a Robert Howe who was possibly born in Hastings in 1920 or thereabouts or any of his sons or daughters. His address was in Hastings during the War period.

Ontario, Canada where he had a relationship with a young woman although it is believed he had a family in Hastings. His relationship with Evelyn Munday produced a son Paul, and he would like to make contact with his half siblings.
Emily Matilda Miniken
I'm interested in finding out more about Emily Matilda Miniken - also known as "Emilie" or "Minnie". She was born in London in 1863 and died in Bexhill on 3rd September 1956. Emily never married. I think she left London sometime in the late 1920s or early 1930s, and may have lived in Hastings before moving to Bexhill. She wrote letters to the Hastings and St Leonards Observer in the early 1930s on the subjects of PDSA fundraising and a re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings. She used the address 7 Berlin Road, Clive Vale, Hastings. Any information about Emily's life in Sussex would be much appreciated.
red mail St Mary in the Castle 1861
I would really appreciate some help with checking the inhabitants of 5 Caroline Place, household schedule 216 of the 1861 UK Census for St Mary in the Castle, Hastings. I have an ancestor there by the name of Edwin Jackson but have not been able to trace his parents, family etc. In the 1861 Census he is shown as nephew to the head of the household, so assume he or she is an aunt or uncle. If anyone could check and let me know who else lives there I would be most grateful.

I have found an entry in parish and National Burial Index for John Glyde who was buried at St Mary in the Castle Hastings Sussex on 19 March 1842.

He was shown on the 1841 census with his wife at Gas Cottages. His wife Charlotte died in 1848 and was described as the relict of John Glyde. Has anyone any ideas for what may have ocurred for his death record?

Looking for information about Henry Frederick BUMSTEAD (B:1826) and his family. He was a cooper (barrel maker) by trade and was born in Hastings. He married Mary Ann CLARK (B:1820) in Coventry in 1845. They seem to have moved often as their children were: Pheobe Ann (B:1848 in St Pancras, London, Frederick A (B:1851 in St Andrews, Middlesex, Mary Ann (B:1854 in Burton on Trent, Amelia (B: Feb 1856 in Burton on Trent, Louis Edward (B:Jan 1857 in Chelsea, Eliza E (B:1860 in Chatham, Kent.

He was James HOLLINGTON (1854-1925) born in Bromley by Bow, and it is no surprise that he was a brewery worker.

red mail Glyde
Can anyone help. I am trying to find the death of a John GLYDE shown on the 1841 census as living at Gas Cottages (where Morrsions is now). He was living with his wife Charlotte and family. Her age given as 50 is incorrect because they were married in 1801 which would have meant she married age 12. I can not find any entry that is a likely death as I have a death cert. for Charlotte, a widow of a John (1847) that gave her age as 64 which would fit with her marriage date. Also I can not find a fit for a birth date of John either who was born in Salehurst based on the census of 1176. Any help would be apprciated

red mail GLYDE
I am researching the Glyde family and have established that my great(x4)grandfather was born in the Salehurst in 1815. His parents were John and Charlotte. He lived until 1911 and died in Hastings. His name was Lawrence and that name and George were given to sons in subsequent 4 generations. I have so far been unable to find the births of John or Charlotte. There were branches of the family in Hastings, Salehust and East Anglia. Lawrence and his sons were involved in the gas,plumbing and building trades in the late 19th and early 20 C. (For any of those interested in Hastings politics the family are likely to have known the characters in the Ragged Trousered Philanthropists) Lawrence helped to build the first Gas Works in Hastings
