Westfield in East Sussex Village Guide


I’ve been researching my family history and discovered my great great great grandparents Edmund Barham who was married to Philadelphia Stunt. They lived at Doleham farm where he was the farmer. Their children were also farmers there and at Knights farm. If anyone has any information about them I would be grateful to hear from you. Edmund was born in 1791 and died in 1866. His wife was born in 1797 and died in 1878. They had six children and I’m decended from their son Arthur.

    Dear Anne,

    I just stumbled across your message on the Westfield website. It is nice to hear of your connection. I too am descended from the same Barhams you mention. I am related through Arthur & Charlotte’s daughter Rosa (born 1857) who married my ggfather Thomas Robert FULLER. Thomas & Rosa lived at Pattleton’s Farm in Westfield until moving north to Bodiam, then Tonbridge. I wonder where you fit in?

    My Fullers also lived at Rock’s Farm in Westfield, and further back to Brightling, Burwash…. Heathfield…

    Hi Patricia,

    I live in Australia but am a Barham descendent also. I’m descended through Edmund’s older brother Samuel Barham. Samuel youngest daughter Sarah Hattersley (nee Barham) immigrated to Australia in 1841 and thus started my line. I’ve uncovered quite a bit already on the Barham family. Edmund actually inherited the Doleham Farm from his father Arthur Barham. If interested my email is [reveal email]

    Best wishes,
