Thomas BUTLER (1591-1645)

and Susan TISEHURST (c1600-1637)


Thomas Butler and Susan Tisehurst married on 15 May 1622 in Burwash, Sussex.  Thomas may have previously married Ann Roper on 12 August 1617 in Burwash.  I have checked a transcript of the Burwash burials between 1617 and 1622 and could not find a burial for Ann.

Thomas Butler was baptised on 1591 in Burwash, Sussex.  He was the son of William Butler and Susanna Whiteman.  Thomas may have been buried on 17 April 1745 in Burwash.

Susan Tisehurst's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She may have been buried on 25 May 1637 in Burwash.  Might she have been the daughter of William Tisehurst and Alice Rowe who married in Burwash in 1602?  Or maybe, Thomas Tisehurst and Mary Picknould who married in Burwash in 1575?


Thomas Butler and Susan Tisehurst had 4 known children:

  1. Mary Butler was baptised on 2 December 1627 in Burwash.  Did she marry Henry Chasmore on 5 May 1646 in Salehurst, or possibly George Wates of Burwash on 21 March 1653/4 in Brightling.

  2. Susan Butler was baptised on 20 December 1629 in Burwash.

  3. Thomas Butler was baptised on 3 December 1633 in Burwash.  He may have been buried on 10 September 1634 in Burwash, but the burial register only records a name and no other identifying information.

  4. Thomas Butler was baptised on 17 January 1635/6 in Burwash.  He may have married Elizabeth in about 1665.  (They have their own page.)
