and Ann NEEVES (1668-1706)
John Barns and Anne
Neeves may have been my 8x Great Grandparents.
They married on 9 May 1689 in Hollington, Sussex.
John Barnes date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to
me. He may have been buried on 5 June 1717 in Hollington.
Might he have been baptised on 30 April 1665 in Westfield, Sussex, the son
of Sampson Barnes and Susannah, or on
13 August 1665 in Brede, Sussex, the son of John Barnes
and Joan Muggeridge? A John Barnes
married Sarah Boyse on 12 August 1689 in Ewhurst, Sussex.
(Brede is bordered by Ewhurst to the north and Westfield to the south.
Holllington borders Westfield to the south west.)
Ann Neeves was baptised on 23 August 1668 in Hollington,
Sussex. She was the daughter of John Neeves and
Mary. At the time of her baptism her parents were of
Beckley, Sussex. As Ann wife of John Barns
she was buried on 11 February 1706
John Barns and Ann Neeves
had 1 or 2 daughters:
Mary Barns was baptised on
5 February 1689/90 in Hollington.
She may have married
on 19 January 1711/2 in Peasmarsh,
Sussex. Or John Delvey on
1 March 1708/9 in Hollington and then as a widow to
Thomas Stoneham on 13 April 1727 in Hollington.
Another Mary Barns was baptised on
8 September 1687 in Hollington, the
daughter of Michael
Barns (1664-1709) and
Sarah Barns was baptised on 27 April 1701 in Hollington.
The baptism register recorded that her parents were John and Sarah.
Was her mother's name wrongly recorded, or was she the daughter of
Sarah Bird? A Sarah Barnes was buried
on 27 December 1716 in Hollington.
