Hi Penny, this is late in the day regarding your search but I’m also trying to trace relatives in Rye in the early 1800s. My mother’s grandmother was married to Edward Swan and her maiden name was Gasson. I don’the know her first name. However they had a shoe shop in Landgate, Rye in the early 1900s. Edward was a cobbler and made shoes at the shop. There is some family history that grandma Swan’s brother (name of Gasson) was an alderman in Rye but I can’t find anything on this. I’d be interested to know if this has any significance for you.
