Re: Balchin's from Sussex
I have several Balchins in Sussex, but in the shipley and horsham areas.
heres what I have. they dont tie up yet, but who ever reads this might get me sorted out! ;o)
1.) BARTON BALCHIN, born about 1830 or before, married MARGARETTA LAVINIA SCUTT(b.1837) in 1869 in Horsham.
they had one daughter EDITH A BALCHIN.
BARTON died between 1870-1874 and Margaretta Balchin is seen to marry JOHN VOICE and have more kiddies.
2.)EDGAR BALCHIN, born in Shipley in 1870 died 1962 married ADA GRAVETT(b.1872) in 1895 in Billingshurst, West Sussex.
they had the following children:
DOROTHEA ELLEN REBECCA BALCHIN
BASIL BERNARD BALCHIN
I do have the 1881 census for Edgar Balchin, but have not entered it into my tree programme yet ;o( so will have to look it up again. anyway, if anyone knows BALCHIN's in this area, please contact me.
email address never changes!
