John Latter was a yeoman in 1642.6
All the baptisms for the children identified here as belonging to John and Joan were recorded with their father's name only. It is possible that there may have been another John Latter in Frant so there is some element of doubt. The use of the name Edward for one of the children, instead of Edmund, is also a concern. It is known that the family had connections to Tonbridge in Kent, so there may be more information to be found there.

Isaac Alchorne

b. circa 1551, d. 13 June 1601
     Isaac Alchorne was born circa 1551.
Isaac Alchorne and Agnes A'Downe obtained a marriage licence on 17 December 1599 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England, 17 Dec 1599, Isaac Alchorne yeoman of Retherfield & Agnes Adowne of same, maiden; sureties said IA and Edward ADOWNE of same, yeoman, brother of the maiden
This is the licence to marry and the actual marriage in a church has not been found and is not in the Rotherfield parish register transcripts.1,2,3
Isaac Alchorne was probably born at Rotherfield in about 1551 although there is no surviving record of his baptism. Isaac married Joan Alchorne at St Denys’ church, Rotherfield on 16th May 1580. Joan was born in about 1558 the youngest (?) daughter of John Alchorne of Adams and his wife Margery.
When his father Thomas Alchorne died in 1558 he bequeathed to Isaac ‘a tenement at Town Row, four swynes of land of the ferling of Town Frith, two swynes of the ferling of Dodd Frith, half an acre of Longley ferling, and twenty-five acres at Towngate, all of which lay in the east of the parish, several miles distant from Alchorne Manor.’
Below: An email received from Dr Robin Fox of Rotherfield in October 2005. Dr Fox is the present owner of Green House, Rotherfield believed to have been built by Isaac Alchorne during the reign of Queen Elizabeth the First:
I see that the Alchornes of Rotherfield feature on your website, so I thought you might be interested in the story of my house. The Alchornes have gone, but the family may remain in the ancestral memory of the beetles that survive in the timber. The house - oak-framed with large central chimney stack (now leaning perilously) - has been dated to 1580 or thereabouts. My father bought the place in 1935 and in the 1970s made some inquiries at the archive office in Lewes. In 1540 four Alchorne (or Allchin) men had children baptised or buried at Rotherfield, one being Thomas Alchorne of Town Row. In 1558 Thomas Alchorne bequeathed to his son Isaac a tenement at Town Row and 25 acres. We think it was Isaac who built our house. In 1580 Isaac married Joan Alchorne (a cousin, presumably), who next year inherited from her father John, a yeoman, part of Alchorne Manor (Adams Farm). Probably the couple thenceforward lived at Adams Farm, not Town Row. Joan bore Isaac four children - son d. 1581, Elizabeth bapt. 1586, John (bapt.1589-90), daughter - and died in 1593-4. Isaac married again twice, having a son Adam by Barbara Lockyer and a posthumous son Isaac by Agnes Adoune. After Isaac's death in 1601, the property was left to John and his stepbrother Isaac. Although John spent his childhood at Town Row (which was managed by the husband of his aunt Elizabeth) he seems to have decamped later to Adams Farm. Probably it was this John who sold the property (to John Chiesman) in 1651.The main part of the house has not changed greatly since Elizabethan times, and current repairs to the main chimney will expose brickwork that has not been touched since it was laid under the supervision of Isaac Allchin more than 400 years ago.
Isaac and Joan had at least four children – son (1581), Elizabeth (1586), John (1590) and daughter (1594). Joan was buried at Rotherfield on 28th January 1595 at the age of about 40 years.
Isaac subsequently married Barbara Lockyer at St Denys’ church, Rotherfield in 1596; she was born at Rotherfield in about 1575. Isaac and Barbara had at least one child – Adam (1597). In 1597 Isaac ‘held by deed tenement and land called Alchornes Newland and Old Rede comprising 60 acres. His land was adjacent to Crowbarrow (now Crowborough) Common and was bounded on the other side by the Queen’s highway. Barbara died in 1599 aged about 24 years.
Isaac then married Agnes Adowne at St Denys’ church, Rotherfield on 17th December 1599; Isaac and Agnes had at least one child – Isaac in 1601. However Isaac died in August 1601 aged about 51 years. Isaac bequeathed the bulk of his property to his sons John and Isaac. Source: http://www.alchin.info/volume1/volume1_004_part1b_descendants_isaac_alchorne.html.

Isaac Alchorne is mentioned in the will of John A'Downe dated 7 November 1600 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.4
Isaac Alchorne was a yeoman.
Isaac Alchorne died on 13 June 1601 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.
His estate was probated on 20 October 1601 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England.

b. 9 April 1875, d. 1940
FatherAaron Jones Burford b. 1848, d. a 28 Jun 1881
MotherElizabeth Gillett b. c 1848
     Francis Burford was born on 9 April 1875 at Brighton, Sussex, England.1,2 He was the son of Aaron Jones Burford and Elizabeth Gillett.
Francis Burford was also known as Frank.

On 9 July 1902 Francis Burford and Rhoda Rose Marchant lived at The Workhouse, Brighton, Sussex, England.
On 2 April 1911 Francis Burford and Rhoda Rose Marchant lived at The Workhouse, 250 Elm Grove, Brighton, Sussex, England.4
The 1911 census entry states that they have had 7 children with 6 still alive.5
Their son Frank Christopher Burford was killed on 1 Mar 1916 in WW1. Royal Sussex Regiment, 2nd Battalion, No L/10210, Private, killed in action.
Their son George Philip Burford was killed on 9 Aug 1918. London Regiment, 7th Bn, No 355562, Private. There was a story handed down the family via Freda Amy Barber (nee Taylor) that "somewhere in the Marchant family there were twins and when the first one went to war and was killed, the second went to avenge him and was also killed". This probably is referring to the Burford boys, although they were not twins. Another aspect of this story was handed down to Angela Emmerton from her family (descendants of Lily Maria Marchant) who was told that the mother was blind and she found out about the death of her son by one of her children reading the paper to her. It was later found in the 1891 census that Rhoda was recorded as blind so this may also have some truth to it.

Francis Burford was a postman on 29 September 1939.2
Francis Burford died in 1940 at Stepney, London, England.

Ellen Jane White

b. 1884, d. 4 September 1960
FatherWilliam Ambrose White b. 16 Oct 1859
MotherJane Harwood b. 1857
     Ellen Jane White was born in 1884 at Worthing, Sussex, England. She was the daughter of William Ambrose White and Jane Harwood.
Ellen Jane White was baptized on 10 July 1884 at Broadwater, Sussex, England.
On 2 April 1911 Ellen Jane White and Cecil Edwin Philip Marchant lived at 30 Roedale Rd, Brighton, Sussex, England, living with Walter Percy Middleton and wife Annie.
Ellen Jane White married Cecil Edwin Philip Marchant, son of William George Buckran Marchant and Maria Murrell, on 5 June 1911 at Broadwater, Sussex, England.1
As of 5 June 1911, her married name was Marchant.
Information from Joan, daughter of Maria Sarah Marchant:
Ellen Jane Marchant (nee White) met Frederick Deacon when she was visiting her children Donald, Gladys & Rose in the workhouse. Frederick Deacon's children were also there. They had two children: Maria Sarah (Sally as she was known) and a son called Thomas. Ellen Jane left them all, including her children, with Frederick Deacon. Daughter Maria Sarah Marchant did not remember her very much.
After Frederick died Gladys or Rose took Maria in to work for them which didn't go too well, and she left them to join the Wrens. I know she kept in touch with Donald when he was a prisoner of war in Italy and lost contact with him when they transferred him to Italy. We tried to find him through the Ministry of Defence but apart from telling us that he was alive they would tell us nothing else.
Maria was brought up as Sarah Deacon. She only found out she was a Marchant when she joined the Wrens, and that Cecil was named as her father. Her brother Thomas was registered in the name of White which Maria found out when he died. Why Ellen Jane did this and did not register them as Deacon's I do not know. Maria was definitely a Deacon, adored her father and so was Thomas. She was very close to Donald but not so much to the girls. I gather that Florence is the one she called Rose but I know nothing of William.
In 1927, Ellen's husband Cecil and their son Cecil James left England for Australia.
Ellen Jane White died on 4 September 1960 at St Francis Hospital, Haywards Heath, Sussex, England.
