Richard FRENCH (1624-1667)

and Barbara HUMPFRY (1624-?)

 

Richard French and Barbara Humfry were my 9x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 11 April 1650 in Chiddingly, Sussex.

Richard French may have been baptised on 14 October 1624 in Heathfield, Sussex.  The baptism register records that his father was Jhon French, whilst the Bishop's Transcript says Thomas French.  John French married Elizabeth Waters on 26 September 1614 in Heathfield.  Richard may have been buried on 30 August 1667 in Heathfield, and his child was buried there on 5 September 1667.

Barbara Humpfry's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  As Barbara French of Heathfield, she may have married Thomas Stubberfield on 15 February 1669/70 in Dallington, Sussex.  Might she have been baptised on 10 September 1624 in East Grinstead, Sussex and have been the daughter of Thomas Humphray and Joane Lousse?

 

Richard French and Barbara Humpfry had 9 known children:

  1. Mary French, my 8x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 16 February 1650/1 in Heathfield.  Only her father's name was recorded in the baptism register.  She married Stephen French in 1672.  (They have their own page.)

  4. Barbery French was born on 7 June 1656 in Heathfield.  Her birth and the name of her father was recorded in the baptism register.  Barbara probably married Edward Smith on 23 December 1680 in Heathfield.

  5. Richard French was baptised on 1 April 1658 in Heathfield.  Only his father's name was recorded in the baptism register.  He was buried on 25 May 1658 in Heathfield.

  7.

  8. Thomas French was baptised on 6 March 1663/4 in Heathfield.  Did he marry Sarah Bennett by banns on 19 April 1688 in Herstmonceaux, Sussex?
