Does anyone have access to, or know where I can access parish records for Brighton? My ancestor, Giles Abbott, is said to have died in Brighton in 1799. Well, that's what FamilySearch says but there are no sources...

I don't see what you are looking for, but the Sussex Record Society has published a lot of Sussex information.

I searched the Sussex Family History Group database for Giles Abott/Abbot/Abbott for the period 1750 to 1810 but no records were returned.
Thanks Chris, Becky and Rick.
I can't find the record you are looking for either.  The East Sussex Record Office at The Keep in Falmer, would be the best physical archive to try, but the Sussex Family History Group can probably cover that for you.

Thanks for checking, but that's not the right one as this Giles married in 1780 and was having children until 1795 at least.

They are available on familysearch.org. Brighton seems to have had several parishes, but the ones I looked at are searchable online and viewable at any Family History Center.
