and Elizabeth NORDEN (c1685-1707)
and Elizabeth BURGESS (c1690-?)
married on 5 or 25 April 1706 in Isfield, Sussex. They were
both then of Isfield. George then married Elizabeth Burgess on
29 April 1714 in Little Horsted, Sussex. George and Elizabeth were my
6x Great Grandparents.
see their place in my pedigree chart.)
George Gadsbe was baptised on 8 July 1683 in Little Horsted, Sussex. He
was the son of
Edward Gadsby (c1650-1718)
and Joan (c1650-1728). He was buried on 7 May 1746 in Isfield,
Sussex, at which time he was of Ringmer, Sussex. George died intestate
and his wife was granted administration of his estate.
Elizabeth Norden's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to
me. She was buried on 3 June 1707 in Isfield and the burial register
noted that she was the wife of George Gadsbe.
Elizabeth Burgess's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to
me. If she was say, 16 when she married in 1714, then she was born no
later than 1698. If her youngest child was born in 1737, then
presumably she was born no earlier than 1690. I would think it more
likely she was about 21 when she married, therefore, born about 1693.
Elizabeth Gadsby was buried in Ringmer on 14 February 1775.
There is a suggestion that the Elizabeth Gadsby, widow who
died in 1775 was in some way related to the Aynscombe and/or Martin
families, from whom it would seem she inherited property. It is also
suggested she may have been the eldest daughter of Robert Aynscombe
(?-1711) and Mary Putland (1672-1727) who had a daughter
Elizabeth baptised in 1700. However, this would make her to young to
have married a Burgess before marrying George in 1714. Unless,
George's second wife died and he remarried or set up home with a third
Elizabeth? If they were not married might this explain why his younger
children were not baptised as infants?
George Gadsby and Elizabeth Norden had 1
