Richard Verrall's parentage is uncertain, as there are four Richard Verrall's in the Lewes general area, at the same time. Richard (1), was baptised at Hamsey, 1676, son of Thomas Verrall (Bapt. 1641), son of Edward Verrall, of Hamsey, yeoman, died 1663. Richard (2), was baptised at St. John's, 1667, son of Richard Verrall, of Barley Banks (bapt. 1640), son of Richard V., who married, at Malling, 1640, Elizabeth Pockney. Richard (3), administered the will of his father, Richard, of Plumpton, 1693. Richard (4), son of Katherine V., of St. Michael's, Lewes, widow, by whose will, proved 1686, he inherited land at Forest Row.
Richard Verrall is frequently mentioned in the Pelham Correspondence, as "Dick", and as the caterer for election entertainments. He served as Constable of Lewes in 1717, 1730, and 1735. Sarah, his widow, was the administrator of his goods, which at his death were valued at 1,510 pounds, 12 shillings, and 8 dimes.

1. Cater Rand of Lewes . Born 9th December 1749. Died 21st December 1825. Buried St Michael's, Lewes.  In his own words, "Surveyor to the Ordinance & Civil Engineer", who as a young man man also ran the school in Lewes founded by his grandfather and for a time kept a book shop. A substantial and fascinating study of Cater Rand's career was produced by John Farrant and published 1973 in the journal "Sussex Industrial History", 6: 2-14. Cater Rand married Lewes 15th April 1775 Mary Scrace (born Lewes 11th January 1755, died Lewes 4th March 1783), daughter of Henry Scrace and his wife Elizabeth.

According to the Sussex Weekly Advertiser of 20th October 1800 Lucy Rand was one of five ladies on board who lost all their clothes except what they wore. The journey continued on a sister vessel. An appreciation of prevailing winds and currents is necessary (allegedly) to understand why the Carribean was en route from Torquay to Madras. The threat of Napoléon's combined fleet, at least until 21st October 1805, was no doubt another major consideration for route planners.   Lucy Rand married in Calcutta, November 1801, Dr John Shoolbred whom she bore one surviving daughter.

This genealogy is not intended to be comprehensive. (Previously omitted branches may nonetheless be addedin response to expressions of interest.)   Therefore the generation indicatormark (e.g.  (A), (i)  or whatever) does not necessarily indicatethe chronological position of a child's birth date in relation to those of siblings.

The starting point for these data is inherited family notesand records, supported by review of relevant parish records and wills.  Chris Rand  wasalso particularly generous with information. Readers interested to know more about CaterRand 1749 - 1825 and better to understand the context in which he lived his life shouldtry and get hold of John Farrant's excellent compilation on Cater Rand published 1973 inthe journal "Sussex Industrial History", 6: 2-14. At the time of writing thearticle is believed not available for sale, but the compiler has been assured that anenhanced version is being readied for publication. In the meantime, library copies mayexist.
