Chownes Mead Maternity Unit

Although Chownes Mead Maternity Unit was located just outside Haywards Heath, many people from the area covered by this website were born there in the middle of the last century. The two documents above record the birth of Chris Johnson on 15th January 1943 to Charles and Vi Johnson of Brighton Road, Handcross, and later of 28, Truggers when the estate was completed after the war.
For the “maintenance” of his wife for the lengthy period of 6 weeks and 3 days a “donation” of £10 was paid.
