James BOORMAN (c1650-1691)

and Elizabeth QUITTENDEN (1653-?)


James Bourman married Elizabeth Quittenden on 8 April 1673 in Mountfield, Sussex.  At the time of their marriage James was a single man of Beckley, and Elizabeth was a single woman of Mountfield.

James Boreman may have been born about 1650.  (Another James Boreman may have been born at about the same time and he also married an Elizabeth in about 1673 and they settled in Burwash, Sussex.)  He was buried on 30 August 1691 in Mountfield.  However, the burial register only records that James Boreman was buried.  Might James have been related to the William Boorman (c1645-?) who married Elizabeth Soals in 1672?

Elizabeth Quittenden was baptised on 15 October 1653 in Mountfield.  She was the daughter of John Quittenden.  Her mother may have been Susanna Ancoke (aka Susanna Noakes) who married a John Quittenden on 1 July 1651 in Salehurst.  Elizabeth may have been buried on 28 November 1702 in Mountfield, as Elizabeth Boreman of Battle, but this entry may refer to her daughter.  Or as Elizabeth Boreman a widow of Beckley, she may have married Thomas Metland of Wadhurst by licence on 9 April 1693 in Peasmarsh, Sussex.  Or as Elizabeth Boarman a widow of Brede or Burwash, she may have married James Knight of Burwash, by licence on 24 April 1695 in Dallington.


James Bourman and Elizabeth had 4 known children:

  1. John Boreman was baptised on 15 May 1674 in Mountfield.

  2. Elizabeth Boreman was baptised on 4 March 1675 in Mountfield. 

  3. Alice Boreman was baptised on 1 September 1682 in Mountfield.

  4. James Boreman was buried on 15 August 1695 in Mountfield and the burial register recorded that he was the son of James Boreman.


James and Elizabeth may also have been the parents of:

  1. Susanna Boreman who married Thomas Avery on 19 January 1706/7 in Mountfield.  (Strangly, the IGI records that a Thomas Avery married Susanna Smith on 16 February 1706/7 in Crowhurst.)
