Hi Charlie,
re:the roots of Edwin Diplock (a painter) and Eliza Longley.
here we go ...
by the way ,they are my great,great ,grandparents.
Eliza's parents were a Charles Longley,baptised 9th.August 1816,and Eliza Mepham bapt.4th.Sept 1825.They were married at Battle, Sussex, England on 18th.July 1845.

By the way , this info comes from the Lewes Public Records Office , in Sussex, courtesy of a friend doing research on our behalf.

The witnesses at their wedding were a Sophia Mepham and a Henry Longley.

This Charles Longley was a hairdresser and his saloon was at 58 High Street, Battle, Sussex.He was definitely at this address in 1855,and still there in 1879...but by 1887, the saloon was being run by a William Longley.
Going back to Eliza Longley again...she had at least two siblings,ie; Richard c.1850, and Helen c.1851.
There probably were several more.
(I have info on siblings of Charles Longley and of Eliza Mepham)

Now , here are the parents of Charles Longley!
A Thomas Longley and a Sarah Gur,they were married in Battle on 1st. Feb. 1884.

Eliza Mepham's parents were a Richard Mepham c.1792 and a Sarah ? Richard was an agriculteral labourer.

Hope this all helps you Charles,
regards Chris.
