The FORD Family of Sussex


So far, I have no known Ford ancestors.


In July 2009, John Ford got in touch with me, to enquire if I knew anything about John Ford and Lucy Hammond.  They were the parents of Stephen Ford (1819-1870) married to Caroline Back (1829-?), whom I had mentioned in my website, as Caroline was the sister of my 3x Great Grandmother Ann Back (1824-1847).  At that point all I knew was that Stephen was born about 1819.

John told me his ancestors John and Lucy were born about 1771 and 1781 respectively, and there he was stuck.  I had a quick look for them, but couldn't find any more.  The 1841 census records they were both born in Sussex, but where?  They had married in Brighton in 1803 when John was in the Sussex Militia.

For the moment I have included just 2 Ford family group pages, but hopefully over the coming weeks/months/years, that will grow, and with luck baptisms will be found for John and Lucy..... watch this space.
