Udimore in East Sussex Village Guide

The Wanting

My name is Howard Noakes from near Sydney in Australia. I would love to hear from anyone from the Noakes family. My family tree was from Richard,(1750), Thomas, James, Louis, James, Harold, then my father Lester(1924). I am 62 years old & have just started backtracking my family tree. It is so interesting and gripping. My address is: 11 McIntosh street, The Oaks, New South Wales, 2570. Australia.My mobile phone number is [reveal tel] . As stated in a previous message “from Udimore They Came” is the Noakes storey book that I am reading. Can anyone help! Please. Regards HN

    Hello Howard,

    I too am a Noakes descendent who lives in Canberra Australia. My line is Richard (m. Mary Susans); Thomas (m. Sarah Darby); Thomas (m. Mary Tamsett); Dinah Noakes (m. Thomas Jones); Thomas Jones (m. Lydia Godfrey) – Lydia was my GGgrandmother. I am trying to purchase (or obtain a copy) of the book you have mentioned “From Udimore They Came”. I am also fascinated and interested in the family history. I would desperately love to obtain a copy of this book and was wondering if you, or anyone else is able to assist. Unfortunately the author no longer resides at the address provided. Many thanks in advance.

    Hi Catherine,

    Yes I am still alive. Not able to find another copy of the Noakes history book. Yes I know it has been a long time since you replied to my message. I would like to make contact with you if that is ok by you. My email is [reveal email] or mobile [reveal tel] . I have made contact with a number of Noakeses but only by email or phone. I will look forward to making contact with you.

    Hi Howard,

    Sorry, I must have missed your earlier email. I have now obtained a copy of the book “From Udimore they Came” (only arrived last week). I managed to get in touch with Marianne McGowan, the author of the book and they did another limited print run. I would be more than happy for you to make contact – my email address is [reveal email]
