Hi There, Wow, can't believe I came across this. I am a descendant of John Champ and Elizabeth World, through their daughter Maria/Mary Champ. (1783) I see you haven't mentioned her, or the other brother George. (1788) I haven't been able to trace my John Champ. I had thought that he hadn't been born in East Lulworth, but wasn't sure.
Loved the story of John and Richard coming over from France. Have you furthered any of this? I found it fascinating! The original name was Beauchamp? And yes, the smuggling etc runs very high in all of my East Lulworth families!!
Elizabeth World (1746) had sister Mary World (1745). I am also descended from Mary. She married into another line of mine (Skiller)
I also have an Ann Champ (born E Lulworth) She married a Joseph Fooks. (married 1769)They had son John Fooks(c 1770) HE married Elizabeth Skiller. My Fooks, Champs, Skillers and Hunts seem to be all interconnected...It has been quite confusing..and I am still trying to figure it all out!!!
I have been away from my genealogy for awhile, but am back now, so trying to retrace some of my lines. I haven't found out about Ann Champ yet. (married Joseph Fooks - 1769)
I hope that you are still able to receive this message. I would love to hear from you.... All the best, Nanette
