The ROBINSON Families of Sussex


I have no known Robinson ancestors, however, my Mum's younger sister, Barbara Olive Tullett married Norman Robinson in 1953.  He was born in 1924 in Eastbourne, Sussex and is the son of Norman Robinson (1889-1951) and Ellen Josephine Balcombe (1893-1957), who had married in 1912 in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

Norman senior was born in Tunbridge Wells and was the son of George Robinson (1864-?) and Helen Eliza Francis.  George gave his place as birth as Hastings, Sussex in both the 1891 and 1901 census.  George and Helen married in 1887 in the Tonbridge registration district.  He was the son of Frederick Robinson and Ann Amelia Scott and they married in Hastings, Sussex in 1851.

Frederick was born in Pulborough, Sussex and was the son of William Robinson and Charlotte Tugwell.  They had married in Pulborough in 1814.  Charlotte was born in Warnham, Sussex in 1793 and died in Pulborough in 1840.  William was baptised in West Chiltington, Sussex in 1788 and was the son of James Robinson and Elizabeth.  William died aged 92 in 1881.

The 1841 census recorded that James was 91 years old, therefore, he was born about 1750.  He may have been baptised in January 1752, the son of Richard Roberson and Ann or in April 1752, the son of John Roberson and Jane.  Both baptisms took place in Billingshurst, Sussex.

Whilst the spelling of Robinson is fairly consistent after about 1800, before then there were various spellings, including Robenson, Roberson and Robertson.  Some of the variants maybe transcription errors owing to difficult to read handwriting.
