Rye in East Sussex Town Guide

Donovans of Rye


From James Williams.
I am related to Sarah Mahala Donovan who was born in Rye in 1852. I posted a request for any information on the DONOVANS about 4 years ago and monitored the Message Board fo several months with no results. However a week ago I checked the Message Board again and was surprised to see 2 posts relating to the DONOVANS ( one by Mike Donovan and another by Laura Martin – Hughes). The posts were 1 and 2 years old when I found them and I have posted 2 replies to them with the hope that they might look on the message Board at some time and with that in mind I will continue to monitor the site
