The Pink Connection
This is a summary of the information I have, if you have any queries contact me
The earliest information I have about the Pink family is from around 1810, when they lived at Dockenfield, near Frensham on the Surrey / Hampshire border. Research carried out elsewhere (by David Pink) suggests that prior to this they lived in the Selborne area of Hampshire and Rogate area of Sussex.
