Flint Family Tree, Leigh, Charlwood, and Ifield, Sussex

Postby Nevis » Thu May 28, 2015 7:53 pm

I was asked to research Horace Walter Flint, who was born in Charlwood, Surrey, England, in1913.
Horace worked for the Railway for over 50 years and was a much respected figure in Crawley, West Sussex, where he died in 1999.
So, following the male line, as far back as we can go (unless you know better :scratc ) we begin the story with William Flint, who was born in 1550, Leigh, Surrey, England. :-D
