James BOORMAN (c1650-c1686)

Henry WILTSHIRE (c1650-?)

and Elizabeth (c1650-?)


James Boreman married Elizabeth before or about 1673.  The only possible marriage recorded in the Sussex Family History Group's marriage index was that of another James Bourman (c1650-1691) who married Elizabeth Quittenden (1653-1702) on 6 April 1673 in Mountfield, Sussex.  They were definitely 2 separate couples.

James Boreman's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He died before 1687.

Elizabeth's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  As Elizabeth Boreman, a widow of Burwash, she married Henry Wisheare (aka Henry Wiltshire) by licence on 11 August 1687 in Burwash, Sussex.

Henry Wiltshire's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.


James Boreman and Elizabeth had 6 known children:

  1. Elizabeth Boreman was baptised on 4 May 1673 in Burwash.  She may have married Richard Leader on 18 April 1695 at St Clements, Hastings, Sussex (that Elizabeth was of Crowhurst and Richard of Hollington), or, Anthony Smith on 22 April 1696 at All Saints, Lewes, Sussex (she a spinster of Rotherfield and he of Mayfield).  There were 2 other Elizabeth’s born about the same time:  1675 in Mountfield, Sussex and 1676 in Crowhurst, Sussex.

  2. Sara Boreman was baptised on 24 March 1675 in Burwash.  She may have married Daniel Winch  by banns on 4 February 1699 in Ticehurst, Sussex.  At the time she was of Ticehurst and he of Hawkhurst, Kent.

  3. Anna Boreman was baptised on 31 December 1677 in Burwash.

  4. Jacob Boreman was baptised on 6 June 1679 in Burwash.

  5. Thomas Boreman was baptised on 10 September 1682 in Burwash.  He left a will in which he said he was in bodily health and of sound and disposing mind and memory.  It was dated 4 February 1701 and was proved on 13 October 1705.  He was the then a mariner of Burwash and his name was recorded as Thomas Bourman.  He left the residue of his estate to his loving mother Elizabeth Boarman now the wife of Henry (whose surname looks like Wilsham, but should this be Wiltshire?)  He nominated John Robins (think that's his surname) as full and sole executor.

  6. William Boreman was baptised on 12 December 1684 in Burwash and may have been buried there on 25 September 1718.  Did this William Boreman marry Ann and/or Elizabeth before 1709.
