and Elizabeth SWIFT (1681-1758)
Henry Fuller and Elizabeth Swift were my 7x Great
see their place in my pedigree chart.) They married on 10
October 1714 at the parish church of St. Mary in Udimore, Sussex. They were both then of Udimore.
Henry Fuller was baptised on 1 September 1687 in Ewhurst, Sussex.
He was the son of
James Fuller (1645-1698) and
(1661-1734). He was a twin. He was buried on 10 July 1755 at the
parish church of St. George in Brede,
Sussex. He was a thatcher. On 12 May 1719 he was granted the 41
year lease of a cottage and lands in Brede by Edward Frewen.
Then on 6 October 1736 he acquired the lease on The Hundred House in Brede
from widow Morris. Henry then passed that lease to his eldest
son John on 1 November 1746, his youngest son James received the lease on
the cottage and lands on 26 December 1750.
Elizabeth Swift was probably baptised on 15 February 1680/1 in
Salehurst, Sussex, the daughter of
(1646-1705) and Ann (?-1705). Given that her last known child was born in
1725, the 1681 baptism would seem appropriate. Also, both her parents
would seem to have been buried in Brede, and despite being of
Udimore when she married, she was not baptised in the
parish, nor in the neighbouring parish of Brede. Elizabeth was buried on 15 May 1758
at the parish church of St. George in Brede and it was
noted in the burial register that she was a widow. At one point I had
wondered if she may have been the daughter of
who had married on 31 May 1694 in Rye. John was then of Udimore and
Joan of Rye. However, they had a son born in 1695, which would mean
Elizabeth would have been born, say, about 1697 or later, and if so could
have continued having children after 1725.
Henry Fuller and Elizabeth Swift had 5 known children:
my 6x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 1 January 1715/6 in Udimore.
Elizabeth Longley in 1736. (They have their own page.)
Steven Fuller was baptised on 12 June 1720 in Brede and buried
there on 30 November 1721. He was a twin.
James Fuller was baptised on 12 June 1720 in Brede and buried there
on 1 April 1722. He was a twin.
James Fuller was baptised on 6 January 1722/3 in Brede and buried
there on 7 June 1724.
James Fuller was baptised on 26 September 1725 in Brede. Like
his father he was a thatcher. On 26 December 1750 he received the
lease of a cottage and lands in Brede from his father. This was then
extended for a term of 41 years on 12 May 1761 by Thomas Frewen.
The lease was surrendered on 4 December 1800.
James married Mary Streeter on 17 December 1749 in Brede.
