Winchester Ancestry around Surrey

Ancestors on the Winchester side of my family were mainly farm workers although the Woods were tanners for at least two generations and the Heasmans were lath cleavers (timber trade). Most of the families from this group were from villages around the Reigate area of Surrey, although the Heasmans were originally from East Grinstead in Sussex before they moved to Reigate, and the Chapmans came from Romsey in Hampshire.

Families known to be part of my Winchester ancestry include; Winchester, Woods, Parsons, Turner, Denyer and Monk from Surrey; Heasman, Pattenden and Dearling from Sussex; and Chapman, Effemey, Parsons and Harding from Hampshire.
