Hi Peter Are you the person who contacted me in 2001 and sent me some hand drawn trees? If so have you made any further progress?
I have definitely identified my Gt Gt Grandfather Thomas in Hastings who would have been born about 1813. I found him in the 1881 cencus living in the Hastings Union - I found aThomas who died in Dec 1889 aged 77 which was registered in Hastings.
My Father told me years before he died that he had relations who lived in Hollington and I Beleive he called him Jack or Jackie - I can't remember ever meeting him.
