My Norman Ancestors

I have two Norman ancestral lines, both linking back to a common ancestor.

The most recent link is via a 5x Great Grandmother Ann Norman who married Thomas Snashall in 1745 in Henfield, Sussex.  She was born in 1723 in Henfield and was the daughter of John Norman and Susan Richardson.

The second is via an 8x Great Grandmother was Mary Norman who married George Elsey in 1675 in Ardingly, Sussex.  She was born in 1644 in Cuckfield, Sussex and was the daughter Richard Norman and Dorothy.

Please note, I can not be certain that I am on the right track with the early Norman families.  I have put together the family group pages based on the data I have so far found.

I am guessing that some of the early Norman families came over from Normandy in France in the early/mid 1500's, to work in the Wealden Iron Industry.  Richard Norman who married Bridget Mitten, widow in 1610, was a forgemen.  They were most probably the parents of another Richard Norman, and he named sons Walter (1636) and Edmund (1646), who were baptised in Cuckfield.  Walter Burrell and Edmund Chalner were iron masters in the Cuckfield area.
