Willard 99-0
Bodenham 97-8 (born Brighton, but based in Cornwall from 1988)
Gunn 93-4
I'm quite sure Martin Bodenham was living in West Sussex for the last few years of his PL career

He was.  He ran a guest house in Looe for a number of years but returned to Sussex-by-the Sea for the end of his refereeing career and for the entirety of his First Class umpiring career.

Steve Tomlin and Clive Penton were Sussex based FL refs at that time, but neither made the very top flight.  They might have progressed in the FA Cup, however, given the FA's occasional appointing eccentricities.
If i remember correctly from a conversation with Martin Bodenham when up in sunny Scarbados, the guest house was in looe a family business.
