  1. My wife and I visited Burwash in October, 2010. We stayed at the Bear Inn and had a wonderful time. My family came from Burwash many years ago. Corner House was the location of a bakery run by John and Anne Marie Hilder from about the 1870’s and finally by their son , Albert and his wife, Sarah Jane (Mepham) until into the late 1920’s. John was the son of Lucy (Warchus) and John Hilder (son of John Hilder and Sarah Collins). Lucy lived on Ham Lane . John and Anne Marie are the parents of my great-grandfather, William John who married Sarah Dann ( her brother is on the war memorial in Burwash, killed at sea in WWI). William John was a miller in Burwash till he moved his family to Lingfield, Surrey about 1888. Their son, William is my grandfather who brought his family to Canada ( Oxbow, Saskatchewan) in 1925. We were able to see Corner House courtesy of the fine ladies at the real estate office. That was one the great moments of my time in the beautiful village of Burwash !! Any information on the Hilder gfamily will be greatly valued.

    • Hi,
      You probably have some of the following but I will add it just in case.
      Lucy Hilder was buried on 15 May 1865 aged 67
      John Edwards Hilder was buried on 28 Nov 1866 aged 76

      There is a removal order for John Hilder the younger and wife Lucy and their daughter Juliana 1 1/2 to Ticehurst from Burwash on 22 Oct 1822.

      Maintenance order on John Hilder the younger, farmers son for a bastard son of Lucy Warchus on 26 Apr 1819. John son of Lucy Warchus baptised 7 Feb 1819. Notes: John Hilder 21 farmer of Wadhurst married 21 Jan 1818 at Wadhurst to Philadelphia Stapley, Lucy Warchus married John Collins 11 Jan 1821 at Ticehurst.

      If I find anything else relevant I will pass it on.
