Doreen Finch is researching her family-
"My ancestor is Richard Sotcher c.1730. He married Elizabeth Hunt [born Bury 1728] at Coldwaltham in 1753.
I am sure we are directly or indirectly connected to the John Sotcher who went to America, but getting back via Richard has proved difficult.
Richard appears to have arrived in Coldwaltham from elsewhwere, but where? I am wondering if he came in from Bignor, Sutton or one of the surrounding villages. I am also having trouble in finding Richards Father. Any help would be appreciated."
