Family History of Hoad


Wanting information on the Hoad family of Watchbell Street. They were involved in Hoad Shipping in the 1800’s. One of the family I believe was a mayor of the town round about that time..

    You are absolutely correct – my maternal grandfather Percy Hoad was a descendent of the Hoad family in Rye. There is a whole exhibit on the Hoad shipyards in Rye Museum. Are you a Hoad?
