Richard DIXON (1689-?)

and Elizabeth GURLEN (c1690-?)


Richard Dixon and Elizabeth Gurlen were my 7x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 21 September 1714 in Henham, Essex.

Richard Dixon was baptised on 21 December 1689 in Henham.  He was the son of 5 209 Richard Dixon and 5 209 Ann.

Elizabeth Gurlenís date and place of birth are unknown, to me, although she may have been baptised on 13 May 1688 in Wrabness, Essex as the daughter of Thomas Girling and Jane.  An Elizabeth Gurten was baptised on 22 March 1683/4 in Henham, the daughter of Steven Gurten (in 1686 he seems to have been Stephen Gurlen with wife Mary).


Richard Dixon and Elizabeth Gurlen had 5 known children:

  1. 5 112 William Dixon was baptised on 10 December 1714 in Henham and buried there on 19 December 1714.

  2. William Dixon, my 6x Great Grandfather, may have been part of this family.  He married Elizabeth Stubbins in 1738.  (They have their own page.)

  3. Sarah Dixon was baptised on 19 July 1716 in Henham.

  4. Anne Dixon was baptised on 24 January 1719/20 in Henham.
