I believe this is one of two brothers who were born in Croydon and then for some reason travelled down to Sussex there is no conclusive evidence of this.

Certainly there are 2 brothers William Sussex and John (Newick) both have the same trade Fellmongering.

I have checked Apprenticeship records but nothing has found
