John EDWARDS (c1650-1703)

and Mary (c1650-?)

 

John Edwards and Mary were my 8x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 20 June 1672 in West Chiltington, Sussex.  Unfortunately, Mary's surname was omitted from the register.  John may have married for a second time on 8 December 1681 to Elizabeth Lee in Wisborough Green, Sussex.  He was said to have been from West Chiltington and she from Pulborough.

John Edwardsís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He was most probably buried on 22 February 1702/3 in Pulborough, Sussex.  The IGI records that a John Edwards was baptised on 1 March 1639/40 in Wisborough Green the son of Richard Edwards or Butcher and An.  However, a John Butcher alias Edwards was buried on 8 October 1658 in Wisborough Green.

Mary's date and place of birth/baptised are unknown, to me.  I would think she died between 1677 and 1681, but I have not found her burial in a transcript of the West Chiltington burial register.

Elizabeth Lee's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might she have been baptised on 25 June 1652 in Arundel, Sussex and have been the daughter of William Lee or maybe on 29 June 1662 in Billingshurst, Sussex, the daughter of John Lee of Parbrooke?
