Family History is my hobby.  I am not a professional genealogist.

My Possible Thorns Ancestors

A 4x Great Grandmother may have been Hannah Thorns who married William Parsons in 1812 in Cowfold, Sussex.  She was born in 1790 in Warnham, Sussex and was the daughter of Ralph Thorns and Sarah Hill.

Hannah was at least my 4x Step Great Grandmother.  Her Grandson Henry Silverson married my 2x Great Grandmother Eliza Stillaway.  Eight years before they married, Eliza gave birth to my Great Grandfather and I am speculating that his father was Henry's elder brother William Silverson, but I have no proof.
