Re: ALFREYs of Sussex c1800 - Lancashire branch
Hello Ann and Prue, and good to learn of other Alfrey of Sussex descendents.
My maternal grandmother was the daughter of Walton Alfrey who was born 1852 in Burnley, Lancashire, England.
Now the Burnley family somehow had connections with the Sussex family as I have inherited a picture of Gulledge, and a painting of the coat of arms which corresponds with that described for the Sussex Alfreys.
I really would appreciate any light anyone can throw on how a branch of the family came to be established in Lancashire, so far (in those days) away from Sussex. Many thanks.
(Incidentally Gulledge recently featured - unfortunately - in plans for a bypass which would come very near it).
