William BUTLER (c1555-?)

and Susanna WHITEMAN (c1560-?)

 

William Butler and Susanna Whiteman married on 1 July 1580 in Burwash, Sussex.

William Butler's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  A William Butler of Burwash left a will dated 24 February 1599/1660 and proved on 4 October 1600 in Lewes (I have not yet read this will).  He was buried on 28 May 1600 in Burwash.

Susanna Whiteman's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

 

William Butler and Susanna Whiteman had 5 known children:

  1. Abraham Butler was baptised on 21 October 1581 in Burwash.  He may have married in about 1606.  (He has his own page.)

  2. Susanna Butler was baptised on 11 October 1584 in Burwash.

  3. Thomas Butler was baptised on 21 November 1591 in Burwash.  He may have married Susan Tisehurst in 1622.  (They have their own page.)  Or he may have married Mary James married on 2 September 1628 in Brightling.

  4. George Butler was baptised on 10 February 1593 in Burwash.

  5. Jeremy Butler was baptised on 6 June 1596 and/or on 12 March 1597 in Burwash.

 

Given the gap between the baptisms of Susanna and Thomas, is it possible that mother Susanna died and William remarried?  Or might the first 2 children be the children of an elder William, and might a younger William have been the father of the 3 younger children?  A William Butler was baptised in Burwash in 1564.  (See below for more earlier Burwash Butlers.)
