For what it's worth I think you notice the aircraft's motion more when sitting in the rear. You're looking right down the cabin so you get a much greater visual impression of movement than when you're sitting at the front. Several years ago Mrs. FF and I flew BHD to Liverpool on a Flybe Dash 8 400. We were sitting in the back row. The last 10 minutes were very rough. Like the couple across the aisle from us we were actually holding on to the seats in front to stop our heads banging together. We were literally being thrown around in our seats. I've had some rough flights in the front row of the same aircraft and it just doesn't seem as bad.
