Product Description

Sussex Enrolments Under the Navy Acts 1795 and 1797

To counter the threat of Napoleon, in 1795 and 1797 Acts of Parliament were passed to enable Justices of the Peace across England to raise men to serve in the Royal Navy. The lists of those enrolled in Sussex under these acts contain the names of the individuals concerned, their birth place, occupation and age.

These lists of enrolments are of interest to family historians and those studying the Napoleonic era and naval history.

These lists are not just of interest to genealogists but also military, social and economic historians as well as those interested in local history.

Over 300 names are included. Full surname index.
