About Thomas Siffleet

NOTE: This Thomas Siffleet, of the Newick area in East Sussex, is not to be confused with a Thomas Syfleet of Stockbury, Kent Thomas Syfleet. (There are numerous Syfleets, and a few Sifleets (single F) in Kent, many near Stockbury; however, as yet, no connection has been found to this family.)


The family is first mentioned in the will of his great aunt, Mary Dutnell, which outlines many of the family relationships.
This Thomas is the nephew Thomas mentioned in the 1805 will of his great uncle Thomas Siffleet, Jr, (aka "The Landowner"). He gets Wild Fields and Balneath Manor.
This document then tells us that Jemima, who has died intestate, is sister of Michael and Thomas the nephews of Thomas (the landowner whose will has been so useful), which confirms that these three siblings are the children of James.
