John BOURNE (1721-1793)

and Elizabeth GLOVER (c1725-?)


John Bourn and Elizabeth Glover married on 14 October 1744 in Mountfield, Sussex.  They were both then of Brede, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

John Bourne was baptised on 20 August 1721 in Brede.  He was the son of John Bourne (c1700-1774) and Mary Jarret (c1700-1772).  He died aged 72 years and was buried on 12 December 1793 in Brede.  His will was proved on 28 January 1794 (ref. PROB 11/1240) and he was then described as a yeoman of Brede.  The A2A web site records that John Bourne, senior of Brede, bequeathed a piece of marshland in Pevensey Level to his son John Bourne.  He may also have been a miller of Brede in 1761.

Elizabeth Glover's date and place of birth/baptisem are unknown, to me.  She may have been buried on 16 February 1781 or on 12 May 1782 in Brede.  Unfortunately the burial register only records a name against each entry.


John Bourne and Elizabeth Glover had 4 known children:

  1. Mary Bourne was baptised on 21 September 1745 in Brede.  The baptism register records that her father was John Bourne, junior.  She may have married Thomas Barnes on 20 April 1767 in Brede.

  2. Elizabeth Bourne was baptised on 17 October 1747 in Brede.  She may have been buried on 11 February 1797 in Brede, but the burial register only records that Elizabeth Butchers was buried.

    Elizabeth married Joseph Butcher on 15 August 1774 in Brede.

    Joseph may have been buried on 30 April 1807 in Brede

    Joseph and Elizabeth had the following known children:

    1. Isaac Butcher was baptised on 11 December 1774 in Brede.  He married Mary Chrismas on 20 November 1795 in Brede.

    2. James Butcher was baptised on 29 June 1777 in Brede.  He married Mary Mallen on 15 January 1798 in Westfield, Sussex.  He was then of Brede.

  3. John Bourne was baptised on 20 Janaury 1749/50 in Brede.  He probably married Sarah Standen in 1776.  (They have their own page.)

  4. Francis Bourne was baptised on 28 April 1751 in Brede and may have been buried there as an infant on 4 February 1753.
