Samuel FRENCH (1665-1747)

and Mary BALDOCK (c1670-1712)


Samuel French and Mary Baldock may have been my 8x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 10 February 1691/2 in Warbleton, Sussex.  As a widower, Samuel married Sara Blackman by banns on 8 October 1713 in Warbleton.

Samuel French was baptised on 6 September 1665 in Warbleton.  He was the son of Thomas French (1618-1673) and Lucy Willcock.  Samuel was buried on 24 January 1746/7 in Warbleton.

Mary Baldock's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 29 April 1712 in Warbleton.

Sarah was buried on 6 September 1746 in Warbleton and the burial register noted that she was the wife of Samuel French.


Samuel French and Mary Baldock had 4 known children:

  1. John French, my possible 7x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 15 January 1692/3 in Warbleton.  He married Ann Brand in 1721.  (They have their own page.)

  2. Mary French was baptised on 25 February 1695/6 in Warbleton.

  3. Samuel French was baptised on 28 September 1698 in Warbleton.

  4. Lucy French was baptised in March 1701 in Warbleton and buried there on 9 June 1703.
