Romany Folk

My ancestors were Romany gypsies around Hollington and the surrounding areas. True Romany folk living off the land, who were well respected in the area. If anyone thinks they have gypsy blood from this area I'd love to hear from you.

RE: Romany Folk

I was born in Hollington and in 1956 we moved when I was three to Nottingham. My fathers name was Poole
I'm trying to find my family who lived in Hasting. The Willard and Witcombe family. Please let me know if you can recall any of theses family names.
