When searching for Ockley ancestors in parish records, bear in mind that several ecclesiastical parishes extend into the village and environs of Ockley.

It is also worth remembering that Ockley is only 1-2 miles away from the Sussex border and, since people often moved around in search of work, records of Ockley families (particularly baptisms) sometimes appear in the Sussex parishes of Warnham and Rudgwick.
