Friends of Lewes Members’ Coffee Time Talk on Zoom, Tuesday 18 May 2021, 10:30am

A Zoom talk for Members

10.30am – Eileen Blythe: How I have researched my Ancestors who lived in Lewes in 1624

Eileen will tell us about her family connection to Lewes. She has been researching into the Lewes Rentals of 1624, and the tenants in the 4 parishes, which includes members of her family. She recently purchased several of the Friends of Lewes books to help to give her more background information.

She thinks she has found the house in Keere Street Lewes where her ancestor George Smither had occupied in 1624.

11.15am – John Wilton – Postcards sent to and from France during the First World War

John is retired school master who has over the years been dedicated to helping charities raise money to support local causes both in Sussex and in countries around the world. However his hobby in his spare time is collecting old postcards and had written several books on the subject.

This time with John’s slides in the correct order (apologies from Jane for the mix up in March)
