The Weald of Kent, Surrey and Sussex
1851 Heathfield Census
Reference RG 107/1638: Hailsham District; Hellingly Subdistrict; Heathfield Enumeration District No 5c
All that part of the Parish of Heathfield which lies Southeast of the Turnpike Road leading from Cross-in-hand to Battle as far as Cade Street and Northwest of the Road leading from thence past the Church to the Clappers and North of the Road leading from thence to Horeham to the Boundary of the Parish, [including the Hooks, Maynards Green, Sicklehatch and the Runtington (properly Runt-and-Ton from the Sign of the Runt Cow and Ton)].
Please note:
  • These census records have been transcribed from images of the original census sheets. Whilst all care has been taken, the result is an interpretation of the original which is available at Local Record Offices, from The National Archives, and from ancestry.co.uk
  • Occupation has been unified (e.g. Ag Lab, Farm Lab, and many other such recordings are all displayed as Farm labourer).
  • The Sheet Number is as shown on the original document and is linked to a page showing all the entries on that Sheet (as well as entries from the following or previous sheet where the entry for the location covers more than one sheet).
  • In those instances where the Census entry is incorrect or missing and it has been possible from other sources to derive a correction, then these changes are shown inside square brackets, e.g. [Wife]
