Hi Michael,

Many thanks for responding to my request. In fact we did meet about 20 years ago when my husband Brian and I visited you at your garage and met your wife and son. We moved to Burgess Hill in W.Sussex about 1 year ago and I have been endeavouring to trace any Sweatmans who might still be in the area. We visited Wittersham church last summer and found George and Jane's memorial stone and also the old shop where George had his bike business.

How do you feel about meeting up sometime in the new year so that we talk about the family history? I have also traced Phil Sweatman who lives in Maidstone, Kent. He is a mine of information about the family and is always interested in meeting family members.

Happy Christmas and look forward to meeting you again.

We moved to Burgess Hill because our son and his family have settled here.

Sylvia,

I grew up in Wittersham in the 60's 70's and 80's. I am not in any way related to the Sweatmans but they were still there during those decades. I think you should look up Michael (a michanic who ran one of the local garages, just down the road from the Smithy) who married Pamela, had children Pauline and 2 more whose names I cant remember. There was also another Sweatman (?Rodney) (unmarried male) who was an electrician who lived in Swan Street. Good luck

I am tracing my husband's family who were originally from the following areas:Burwash, Ticehurst, Etchingham, Sandhurst, and Wittersham. The 1901 and 1911 census have George and Jane SWEATMAN living near Forge, Wittersham, Kent and also Tenterden Rd, Wittersham. George Sweatman was a Wheelwright and later on ran an early bicycle shop/repair business. Does anyone know the location of this shop/business? Or indeed have any information about the Sweatman family?
Many thanks.
