Rye

The painting above shows the Town of Rye, England, the departure point for my 4th-great-grandfather George Oyler and family to America. Rye is located on the coast of East Sussex in south east England, at the confluence of the Brede, Rother and Tillingham Rivers.

Further information on the town of Rye and its history can be found at the Rye Museum website.

The proximity of Rye to the Oyler home area in Hawkhurst, Kent can be seen in the map below:
