The Creasey Family At Worth, West Sussex - a Memory of Worth.


My great-grandmother's family were farmers in Worth, and nearby Copthorne and Charlwood in the mid-nineteenth century.

Great-grandma was Eliza Creasey and she married great-grandad George Allen in the chapel at Copthorne in 1870. I have not yet been able to visit Worth but the modern maps make it hard to believe there may once have been farms here!

It is lovely to look at the old photos on this site and imagine my great-grandparents may have walked down these very lanes. Eliza's parents were Thomas Creasey and Jane Previtt and I think they married in that area in 1838 so my Creasey family have been around there for a long time but eventually moved to South Norwood to run a wheelwright business.
