James BOTTING (1638-1711)

and Mary GRAY (c1650-1719)


James Botting and Mary Gray married on 30 March 1673 in Cuckfield, Sussex.

James Botting may have been baptised on 25 March 1638 in West Grinstead, Sussex and have been the son of James Botting  (1597-?) and Susan Willett (1603-?).   He may have been buried on 14 March 1710/11 in West Grinstead, but the burial register only records that James Botting was buried.

Mary Gray's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She may have been buried on 5 May 1719 in West Grinstead, but the burial register only records the Mary Botting, widow, was buried.


James Botting and Mary Gray had 4 known children:

  1. Edward Botting was baptised on 12 October 1675 in West Grinstead, Sussex.  (Not in the transcript of the West Grinstead baptism register.)

  2. James Botting was baptised on 16 October 1679 in West Grinstead.  He married Jane Woolven in 1715.  (They have their own page.)

  3. Mary Botting was baptised on 9 November 1682 in West Grinstead.

  4. Elizabeth Botting was baptised on 3 November 1688 in West Grinstead.
