The Pursgloves of Eastbourne - [EBRN]

The settlements around Eastbourne developed around Stone Age flint mines.  In 963, an Anglo Saxon charted gives information about a coastal landing at Bourne.  The church of St Mary's dates to the 12th century.  The town as it is now was starting to develop in the 1700's incorporating the settlements of Bourne - by the Bourne stream, Meads, South Bourne and Sea Houses.

The railway arrived at Eastbourne in about 1850 and this resulted in a significant development of the town as a local trading centre and a seaside resort.  The economy is now tourist bases and includes a large marina.

John Mayo Pursglove [1745] married Jemima Beadle on 5 Jan 1856 at Trinity Church
