Did You Know?

  • There is a gap in the baptisms of the children of Benjamin Mepham and Elizabeth Corke in Heathfield between 1791 and 1797. According to PAR372/35/2, as at 10 January 1792 Benjamin had run away, leaving his wife and family chargeable to the parish. Benjamin was presumably also absent in 1795, when it was ordered that Elizabeth's 8-year-old son Benjamin Mepham Cork be sent back to Mayfield, his parish of birth, having become chargeable to the parish of Heathfield.
