Prominent Families at St. Swithun's

St. Swithun’s Church East Grinstead

Prominent Families

The Payne’s and Crawfurd's (Payne-Crawfurd's)

We see their family memorials on the walls of our church on every occasion we enter the church building. However, do we really see them? Do we know anything about the families or the individuals mentioned?

Click on the picture of the Crawfurd family founder John Crawfurd 1694 to read an article on several family members who played a prominent role in the development of St. Swithun's Church.

A further article detailing the Payne family involvement with St. Swithun's will follow shortly along with details of the people behind the many memorials to both families in the church
