Comments about this page

My great grandather, Jabez Reynolds the Younger, built St Martin's church. He built extensively in Brighton and Hove, following in his father's footsteps. His father, Jabez Reynolds Senior, built "something like" 1,000 houses in Brighton and Hove. This is recorded in memoirs written by my grandfather, Arthur James Reynolds, and in a letter signed by Jabez Reynolds senior on 31st August 1886.

I was Baptised at this church, it looks so beautiful. When I next visit Brighton I will go and see it - if it is still standing.
