The Neeves/Neaves family of Peasmarsh & Brede, Sussex and thence to Prospect, Australia ... and beyond.
The Neeves Story is an article
I wrote on the history of the Neeves family in Sussex and Australia. It
was written back in the mid 1990's, originally as a booklet. My
researches have moved on considerably since then so the article is very
much out of date. It is well worth a read to get a more narrative view
of the family (not just my own line), but please refer to the other
files for more up to date details. Please disregard the note about
printed copies being available (with photographs, certificates etc). I
will continue to update the line and extended family charts and at some
stage in the future plan on combining all three files into an extended
family genealogy, complete with photographs, certificates etc (see the
Greenwood files for an example). This may not happen before 2010 so
please don't your breath! I am happy to provide copies of any of the
photographs, certificates etc referred to in the Neeves story.
