I join the Alfrey tree with a 5x Great Grandmother
Ann Alfrey who was
born in Henfield, Sussex in 1777. She married
James Streeter in
1797 in Brighton, Sussex, which is where they raised their family of possibly 8
or 10 children.
Ann was buried in Brighton in 1843.
Ann's father Philip Alfrey was born in Henfield in 1754 and was
also buried there in 1835. He married
Mary Botting and they had 10
Philip's father was
John Alfrey who was born in Steyning, Sussex
in 1727, although he had settled in Henfield by 1754 along with wife Mary,
where they raised their 4 children. John was buried in Henfield in 1814.
John's father was another
John Alfrey who was born 1691 in
Slaugham, Sussex. He was a Blacksmith. John married twice, firstly
to Ann Wood in 1720 and then to
Elizabeth Davis in 1727. Ann
was buried in Steyning in 1723 and they had 1 daughter. John and Elizabeth
married in Steyning, but had move to Henfield by 1731 and they had 6 children.
John's father was yet another
John Alfrey born
1669 in East Grinstead. He married twice, firstly
Dorcas Peter (?-1706) in 1691
in Slaugham and they had 3 children. He then married
Matthews (?-1730) in 1707 and they had 5 children born in Pyecombe and
John was the son of another
John Alfrey born
1634 in East Grinstead and
Tasker, who had married in 1662.
John was the son of
Alfrey of Gullege who was born 1598 in East Grinstead and
Bysshe who married in about 1619.
Edward was the son of Edward Alfrey (1579-1610) of Gullege and
Anne Foster, who were my 12x Great Grandparents. Details about my
earlier Alfrey ancestors can be found at:
Felbridge & District History Group.
I am very grateful to Jeremy Clarke (webmaster of the
Felbridge & District History Group) for providing me with a missing link.
For some time I had been stuck on John Alfrey who married Dorcas Peter
in 1691. Previously it had been suggested to me that John was a descendant of
the Alfrey's of Gullege in East Grinstead, but I wasn't certain how.
However, Jeremy had managed to identify that John, husband of Dorcas, was born
1665/9, the son of John and Rebecca (nee Tasker), which then lead
all the way back to the 15th Century, and with even further possible links back
to the 13th Century. Very many thanks Jeremy, for helping to give me even
deeper Sussex roots.
