KNIGHTS OF HENFIELD SUSSEX. I'm searching for my grandmother's family on my mother's side. Grannie was Lizzie Kate Knight (married either Gilbert or Walter Knight of Brighton). Lizzie was one of 11 children born to Maria (b. 1845, Bramber) and Clement (b. 1845, Chiddingley) Knight. His parents were Joel (b. 1812 Heathfield) and Caroline Knight (b. 1812 Hailsham) and had a greengrocery in Eastbourne. Clement was a miller and baker and in 1881 was living in Henfield Sussex. The children were: Clement Ellis: b. 1869 Bramber Herbert Joel: b. 1871 Henfield Lucy (or Louisa) Maria: b. 1872 Henfield Jessie Amanda: b. 1873 Henfield (married name Chambers) Fanny Caroline: b.1874 Henfield Henrietta May: b. 1876 Henfield Lizzie Kate: b. 1878 Henfield (my grandmother) Octavius Harry: b. 1979 Henfield Bridger George: b. 1881 Henfield Oscar: b. 1882 Henfield Alice: b. 1888 Brighton Does anyone please have any of these in their tree or know anything about any of them? Thanks Neela (Cornelia) Mann
