Just getting the hang of this. I am descended from my 3G grandfather Henry Payne (1794-1872) of East Grinstead and his wife Dinah Spencer (1790-1874). He was a master cordwainer as were a number of his 8 children and 28 grandchildren. Six Payne's played first class cricket for Sussex between 1853 and 1866. I am looking for help to find Henry's parents. He was born in East Grinstead and I have two candidates: William and Hannah Payne had a son Henry baptised 15/6/1794 and John and Mary Payne had a son Henry 30/3/1794. Another Payne researcher has chosen William and built quite a family from there. The only clue I have to favour that choice is that the Henry born to John and Mary was privately baptised which could mean he was sickly. I just published a story of my East Grinstead Payne family in the Sussex Family History group journal which is what directed me to this forum. Can anybody help?
