Hello,

George FURNER c. 12 Aug 1832 Brede, E Sussex d. Dec Q 1889 RD Battle

Marriages Dec 1853
Furner George Rye 2b 3
ROBERTSON Hannah Rye 2b 3

Hannah ROBINSON / ROBERTSON b. abt 1834 or 1835 Rye according to census

1881
National archives reference: RG11

Household Gender Age
George Furner M 49
Hannah Furner F 47

Mary Robinson F 75
First question: Does any transcription or the original image list Mary as mother or mother-in-law or step-mother or aunt ?

The index lists Mary as ROBERTSON:

1891
Name: Mary Robertson
Age: 84
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1807
Relation: Lodger
Gender: Female
Where born: Pevensey, Sussex, England
Civil parish: Sedlescombe
Ecclesiastical parish: St John
Town: Sedlescombe
County/Island: Sussex
Country: England
egistration district: Battle
Sub-registration district: Battle
Hannah is listed in census as born Rye but there is no sign of a middle name.

I've found these - both private IGI entries.

Hannah Clark ROBERTSON
b. 30 Mar 1834 c. 30 Mar 1834 Playden, Sussex
James ROBINSON & Mary BATCHELER

James ROBERTSON & Mary BATCHLER
7 Apr 1833 Icklesham, Sussex

Playden is about 1 mile NW of Rye. There is no OPC for Playden.

This is probably Mary's death:

Deaths Jun 1895
Robinson Mary 89 Battle 2b 40

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

Well I'll accept that Mary is Hannah's mother and that I shouldn't worry too much about the family name for now. ;)

So much of my grandmother FURNER line going back to 1666 in Brede will have to wait for more E Sussex records in parishes such as Brede to get an OPC.

Regards,

Dave
