In 1855 John S Osborn and his wife disappeared leaving their children with the grandparents. It was not until over a century later that it was discovered where they went to and why they never returned to their homeland of Sussex England and their children. This story of survival in 19th century Sussex gives insights into how the rural population took advantage of whatever they reasonably could in order to achieve a practical standard of living. The story involved the coastal pursuit of wrecking and smuggling and the conflicts that this brought about in closely knit rural families. It also included gold prospecting. The story of John S Osborn and his family and associates was published in 2015 as a limited edition of 50 copies only as illustrated left. The book has been deposited in relevant public record offices in England and aboard. Comprising 125 printed pages, it has had startling results, precipitating the need to publish a further chapter not included in the original book - a special chapter 23!

To find out more about this tragic 19th century adventure, secure a copy and read this enthralling, true life exploit.
