John BARTHOLOMEW (c1687-?)

and Dorothy OSBOURNE (1689-1755)


John Bartholomew and Dorothy Osbourne were, I believe, my 8x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by licence on 7 September 1712 in Pycombe, Sussex.  John was then described as a taylor and they were both of Hurstpierpoint.  Their marriage licence was issued by the Archdeaconry of Lewes on 4 September 1712 and recorded that he was a bachelor and she a spinster.

John Bartholomew's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

Dorothy Osbourne may have been  baptised on 14 April 1689 in Alfriston, Sussex, the daughter of Thomas Osborne (1655-?) and Joan.  She may have been buried on 13 November 1755 in Newtimber, Sussex, as Dorathy Bartholomew.


John Bartholomew and Dorothy Osbourne had 1 known child:

  1. Elizabeth Bartholomew was baptised on 8 July 1713 in Hurstpierpoint, Sussex.  She married John Steel in 1732.  (They have their own page.)  They may have been my 7x Great Grandparents.
