    3-8. The Linfields
    Joseph Linfield, my great-great-great-great grandfather, was born in the county of Sussex, England, sometime around 1778. He may have been born in Shipley Parish or possibly Billingshurst or even the village of Lindfield, from which the family name may have originated. Lindfield is located about twelve miles to the east of Shipley Village.

    Like most young men in Sussex at the end of the eighteenth century, Joseph was a farm laborer. If Joseph was not born in Shipley, he eventually settled there. On 4 September, 1807, Joseph Linfield married Mary Pronger in Shipley.
