Bayley Family


I trace my family tree back through the Bayleys of Rye in the 19thC who were mariners. I have quite a bit of info on the family but seek more. Can anybody help?

    I have more modern information that would chart a branch of the family tree, but not of a direct ancestor of yours. My mother, Ellen Bayley, was a war bride who emigrated to Canada after WWII. My grandparents were Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bayley of Wish Street in Rye. I also have some limited information of previous generations.

    The Bayleys of Rye, particularly James and George Bayley operated a number of ships from Rye harbour in the C19th. James came from Winchelsea, born there in 1810. I am interested to hear from anyone who has a link or information about this family.
