Pett Blacksmith

Laurence Rudham () has sent the following message to Pett on the Net.
‘My great grandfather at one time was blacksmith at Pett. I believe the family lived at Guestling Willett /Tindell. My grandmother Mable Willett married Rudham and had a cycle repair shop at Hastings. I have looked at the photos, my great grandfather pre dated Tom Barden.
I was told stories about the smuggling at Pett level etc, but sadly too young at the time to take notes.
I see we have one relative remaining in Hastings, Joan Willett aged 104.’
Can anyone help Laurence with his enquiry?
