Thomas BOURNE (1640-1724)

and Mary (c1650-1714)


Thomas Bourne and Mary were possibly my 8x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  No possible marriage has been found for them in the Sussex marriage index, or the IGI.

Thomas Bourne was baptised on 27 December 1640 in Burwash, Sussex.  He may have been the son of Edward Bourne (1607-1685) and Anne Coale (1609-1679), but in the baptism register the parents names of Thomas Bourne and Elizabeth have also been added.  He was buried as Thomas Bourne, senior on 19 October 1724 in Burwash.

Maryís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 29 April 1714 in Burwash.


Thomas Bourne and Mary had 7 known children:

  1. Edward Bourne was baptised on 15 May 1673 in Burwash.

  2. Mary Bourne was baptised on 6 May 1674 in Burwash.

  3. Judith Bourne was baptised on 5 October 1675 in Burwash.

  4. Thomas Bourne was baptised on 2 May 1677 in Burwash and probably died young.

  5. John Bourne, my 7x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 3 May 1680 in Burwash.  He married 5 283 Mary.  (They have their own page.)

  6. Thomas Bourne was baptised on 5 October 1684 in Burwash.

  7. Nicholas Bourne was baptised on 6 August 1692 in Burwash.
