All that part of the Parish of Hailsham which lies North & West of the Battle Road from New Bridge to Marshfoot, from thence following the road to the Grenadier Inn and from thence following the footpath down the Barrack Ground, crossing the Common to the end of Occupation Road leading to Knock Hatch, from thence the footpath to Robin Post Lane to the Boundary of the parish (including Magham Down and Barrack Ground.)
Please note:
  • These census records have been transcribed from images of the original census sheets. Whilst all care has been taken, the result is an interpretation of the original which is available at Local Record Offices, from The National Archives, and from ancestry.co.uk
  • Occupation has been unified (e.g. Ag Lab, Farm Lab, and many other such recordings are all displayed as Farm labourer).
  • The Sheet Number is as shown on the original document and is linked to a page showing all the entries on that Sheet (as well as entries from the following or previous sheet where the entry for the location covers more than one sheet).
  • In those instances where the Census entry is incorrect or missing and it has been possible from other sources to derive a correction, then these changes are shown inside square brackets, e.g. [Wife]
