Family Tree At Barcombe - a Memory of Barcombe.
My great-grandmother was born here in 1847, Elizabeth Reed. Her father William was employed as a farming bailiff. I recently drove 200 miles to take photos of the fine church in the village, only to return home and see a better one on the net. However I did find 2 gravestones with Reed names on them.
Such a pretty village I was very pleased to have visited it, and almost wished the family had not moved away.
