Winchelsea in East Sussex Town Guide

Hearnden Family


Can anyone help with information on my family tree please?

Issac Hearnden was born in Winchelsea in 1772. He married Elizabeth Brett in 1802 and was a grocer in Winchelsea.
His son, George was the Postmaster at Church Street, Winchelsea and his daughter Lavinia was the Postmistress after him.

I wonder is there any trace of the family left in the town?
