Looking for anyone who is related to or interested in these names.
The BANKS family lived in Brighton and Hove from about 1850 – my branch moved from Ringmer. Many of them were gardeners and florists. One was a phtotographer.
The BRIGDEN family were in Brighton by 1841 – my lot moved from Cuckfield. They were tailors, undertakers and coachmakers (latterly automotives).
WOOLGAR family – moved to district by mid 1800’s ish. lived in Brighton, Hove, Fishersgate, Southwick and later in Shoreham etc. Sailors, pleasureboatmen, bathing machine operators and fishermen.
Love to hear from anyone at all…
