Hello Mervyn,
Yes the Wilson family ran the village store for a number of years it is the store at the bottom of the village my aunt married into the Wilson family. My family were the Monks,my uncle was a builder, that is who Monks way is named after his company built the estate. I have been tracing the Monk family as we were all born in the village and have traced the family back to 1798 all born in the village. Beryl (Hooker)

Hello Steve,

No, I moved to Seslescombe after I married. I dont remember. You must have been born after I left school and moved to London for 7 years coming back to Sussex when I got married. Yes, Peter is right about my two brothers. Dennis passed away in May but Tony still lives in the village. Remember me to Peter. I remember your family so well. Beryl

Hello Tammy, my 2nd great grandparents Will & Maria Beaney lived at The Farthings in the 1890s. While I have no further information about the Farthings I do have an old photo of Will & Maria, as we are obviously related you are welcome to a copy if you would like one. Kindest regards Steve Wilson (son of Walter Beaney-Wilson)

Hello Mervyn, as a child I lived at Copeland’s Rise with my mother and father Walter & Dorothy Beaney–Wilson, my granddad James Beaney & his wife Sarah lived at Greenleigh, Station Road. I left Northiam as a young child and wish to know more about my family especially as I know my dad’s brothers and their wives also lived in Northiam. I can’t seem to find a contact address for Northiam Conservation Society, do you have one. I am currently based in Los Angeles so cannot visit the village to find them. Kindest regards Steve Wilson

I was once told that the Farthings were at one time owned by Will & Maria Beaney. Or at least they lived there.
