William BOXE (1647-1718)
and Susanna (c1655-1705)
were my 7x Great Grandparents. (Click
see their place in my pedigree chart.) They married by licence on 10
May 1681 at St. Anne's parish church in Lewes, Sussex, as William
Vaux and Susan Vinall. Their marriage
licence was issued on the same day by the Archdeaconry of Lewes. He
was of Ardingly and she of West Hoathly, as per the marriage register, but
their marriage licence notes they were both of Ardingly. Both the
licence and entry in the marriage register recorded his name as
William Vaux. William and Susan were the only couple to have
married at St. Anne's that day, but 4 days later another Ardingly groom
married an East Hoathly bride. William had previously married
on 17 June 1679 in Ardingly, Sussex.
was baptised on 1 January 1647/8 in
Barcombe, Sussex. He was the son of
Boxe (1615-1648) and
Longley (1621-?). He was buried on
10 July 1718 in Ardingly, making him about 70 years old when he died.
However, there was also a William
Boakes baptised on 10 December 1643
in Barcombe, the son of
(1608-?) and possibly Agnes Venner.
date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me. She was buried on 17 February
1679/80, Ardingly. There were no known children from this marriage,
although I wonder if she may have died in childbirth. Might she have
been the daughter of of
Thomas Vennoll and
Jane, or maybe
and Joan, or even
and Mary, or some other couple?
date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me. She was buried on 12 February 1704/5
in Ardingly. I would guess that she was born sometime between about 1652
and 1664, possibly closer to 1652 given that her last known child was
baptised in 1697. Might she have been a widow when she married
William? A Susan(na) Payne married
on 4 or 6 April 1678 in West Hoathly, at which time she was of East Grinstead.
(Vinall and Vennol seem to have been interchangeable at that time.) John may have been buried on 21 October
1680 in West Hoathly. Might he have been the brother of William's
first wife Mary? Susanna Payne may have been
baptised on 5 April 1654 in East Grinstead, the daughter of
Thomas Paine and Joan, or on
21 July 1657 also in East Grinstead, the daughter of
and Susanna had 9 known children:
was baptised on 5 May 1682 in Ardingly and
buried there on 15 May 1683.
was baptised on 9 September 1683 in
on 9 November 1707 in West Hoathly, Sussex.
Sarah was buried on 23
February 1726/7 in Ardingly. I donít know if there were any children from

Ardingly. He may have married 3 times, firstly to
in 1711, then
Mary Faulkner in 1716 and finally
in 1733. (They have their own page.)
was baptised on 16 September 1692 in
Ardingly. He may have been buried on 3 July 1782 in Newick.
Richard may have married
on 5 January 1718/9 in Lindfield, Sussex.
Ann may have been baptised on 9 August 1696 in Fletching and have been the
Stephen Pierce and
or on 7 September 1697 in Newick the
daughter of John Pierce and Ann. Might she have
been buried as Mary Box on 24 January 1780 in Newick?
Ann had 4 known children:
John Box was baptised
on 18 October 1720 in Newick. He may have been buried on 28
January 1795 in Newick.
was baptised on 15 September 1723 in
Anne may have married George Morphew by
banns on 9 December 1768 in Newick. She was then a spinster of
Newick and he a widower of Fletching. The witnesses to their

George had previously married Hannah Boots on 10 June
1732 in Fletching.
