Iden in East Sussex Village Guide

Dive, Pierce, Parsons Ancestors


I am looking for any info on John and Phillip Dive who are my 3x and 4x great grandfathers. Elizabeth Parsons married and beacame a Dive.

Eleanorah Dive was the daughter of Phillip Dive and married a Mr Pierce.

They lived in Iden, Eleanor was born in 1890, Phillip was born c1835 and John was born about 1806 to 1809.

Any help would be fab.

Kind regards,

Many thanks

    My name is Leonard Bentley and I have lived in Iden for a few years. I have come across the name ‘Dive’ both as a surname and a first name. I am particularly interested in three brothers who were born in Broad Oak/Brede, they were Harold, Percy and Albert. There is a very tragic story attached to the three brothers and I was wondering whether you are related or know of them. They were all born towards the end of the 19th Century.
    Best regards, Leonard Bentley.
