Richard ETHERIDGE (c1630-?)

and Alice PARSONS (c1635-1692)


Richard Etheridge and Alice Parson may have been my 8x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 11 May 1658 in Thakeham, Sussex.

Richard Etheridge's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been the son of Thomas Etheridge and Agnes Turneagayne who married in December 1608 in Thakeham?

Alice Parsons date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 16 September 1692 in Thakeham.  Might she have been the daughter of John Parson and Joan Tanner who married on 30 November 1632 in Thakeham?
