Family History

The Museum can offer an ad hoc Family and Local History Research service where we are happy to answer your “quick questions” free of charge however, a more extensive search will be charged by the hour.

Inquiries requiring more detailed investigation will need the assistance of a qualified genealogical researcher which we can recommend.

The Museum holds a number of local /family history documents that can be researched at the Museum:

  • Village School Admissions Register 1872 -1912
  • Monumental Inscriptions from Storrington and surrounding villages
  • Storrington Index for Baptisms (1549 – 1901), Banns (1875 – 1901),Marriages (1549 – 1901) and Burials (1549 – 1900)
  • Sullington Index for Baptisms (1555 – 1905), Marriages (1555 – 1900), and Burials (1556 – 190
  • Storrington and surrounding village War Memorial and Roll of Honour details
