The name JOYES crops up frequently in early Wisborough Green records; but at this time we can find no connection with this line. Our link with the district comes later.
Hannah JOYES was the third daughter of Thomas and Leah JOYES , baptised at Billingshurst in 1802. She married a farm worker, Peter PACY of Wisborough Green in 1821. This was where they raised a family and were at one time known to be living on a property called Hulls.
Luke, a son of Thomas and Jane JOYES seems to have spent some time at the Wisborough Green Workhouse. As he appeared to be older than the other children living there, he may have been employed at the workhouse or was waiting to be placed in farm work by the vestry. Later he became a marine.
