Family History


Much of this line is speculative to date (27/8/2007). Fanny Clarke's father James wasn't born in Petworth. I believe he was the son of the Richard and Mary Clarke ' chosen because on his marriage to Sarah Lucas he was given as being Egdean and on the marriage of Richard Clarke to Mary Steer she was also given as being from Egdean. No Clarkes were born in Egdean.
