My Knowles Ancestors

A 3x Great Grandmother was Mary Knowles who was born, raised her family and died in Cuckfield.  She married William Tulet in December 1816 in Brighton, Sussex.  Her parents were John Knowles and Sarah Box who had married in Ardingly in 1788.  John was born in nearby Balcombe and his parents were Richard Knowles and Frances Brooker, and that's where the trail ends for the moment, although I think it very possible that Richard was the son of William Knowles and Elizabeth Purvey.
