Rye in East Sussex Town Guide

Family History of Woolley


I am trying to trace my ancestors – WOOLLEY – who resided in Rye at the beginning of the 18th century. JESSE WOOLLEY who was a “sailor” had a family of five in the 1830s called Elizabeth Ann, Susan, Jesse, William and Susanah (twins). Their mother was called Sarah Ann Roberts. They all resided in Pump Street which I believe is now called Church Square.

Any Woolleys left in Rye?
