A Sussex Probyn Family History

Overview

This family tree of my Brighton cousins the Probyns was put together by my late uncle Alan Probyn.  He traced the family back to the mid/late 1700’s at Newent in Gloucestershire near to the Welsh border.  They migrated to Birmingham in the 1840’s.  Alan Probyn moved to Sussex in the 1930’s when he joined the Brighton police.
