As a Family History Researcher may I congratulate you on a most excellent Site. I have traced my Mother's Langley Line back through Iping, Stedham and Petworth, and have a link to the Gadd Family whose tree you display.
My 3rd GGFather Robert Langley was born in Fernhurst in 1803 and married Frances Steel of Iping in 1827. I know little about Frances except that she may have been the daughter of William and Elizabeth Steele. Robert's previous 3 generations had all lived at Bignor/Sutton, but they are descended from William Langley (1638) who married Ann Sotcher at Petworth in 1691.
I would be interested to hear from anyone else who is following these lines.
From Bob Campbell, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, 18 Apr.2008
I am in Australia, and have been researching my family's history which goes
back to this area of West Sussex to before our country was discovered by Captain Cook. So I was very
pleasantly surprised by all the really great photographs taken at the villages where my ancestors were living.
You are to be congratulated as these photographed really bring their story from old documents to life, in an area where it is unlikely I will ever have the opportunity to set foot and visit personally.
