WISE 1800 Rotherfield Greys
WISE 1750 Highmore
WISE 1700 Bix

Notes: My family seem to have been involved with the wood industry around the Bix and Highmoor areas. I have associated the family with the names Silas Wise, and Solomon Wise, wood dealers, in this area. Great Grandad James married Rebecca Saunders of Highmoor poss 1838 to 1923 daughter of James and Mary. Looking at the Highmore / Highmoor census return for 1851 there seems to be a lot of Wise families in this area.
