Hi Ann,

My cousin found the wife's name and date of death as 24 April 1612, Brightling.

Yes it must be fascinating, I've thought about having mine done too.

Hi Carole,

My family line comes from Issac and Mary too through Issac. I’m excited you have a wife’s name for Nicholas. How did you find it? I recently had my DNA checked and it was fascinating reading.

I am a direct descendent of Nicholas Venis (Nicholas De Venoix) born around 156o in France, along my father's line.

I have not yet found out why/when he arrived in Sussex and am not sure how to find out any history prior to Sussex as apparently all French records were destroyed in the French revolution. I was told by French colleagues that even they can't trace their family history - unless a Hugenot.

Apparently records exist of members of the De Venoix family from/after the Norman Invansion onwards.

Nicholas Venis married Katherine (maiden name and place of birth unknown). She died 24th April 1612 in Brightling. Nicholas died 'after 1563'.

I Would love to find out details of how they lived / what they did for a living.

I am rewriting my family tree. Does someone know when the name changed to De Venoix to Venis or Veness? My Grandmother on my father's side is a Veness and a direct descendant it seems to Nicholas De Venoix

I am looking for details of Frances VENESS in the Battle area b. circa 1786, possible mother of Hannah HONEYSETT b. circa 1818 (one of eight children). I am trying to identify and find further info on Frances, her mother and her grandmother. If anyone could help, I'd be most grateful!
