Thomas GADSBY (1679-1750)

and Mary THORPE (c1685-1753)

 

Thomas Gadsby and Mary Thorp married on 9 June 1707 in Uckfield, Sussex.  He was then of Little Horsted and she of Uckfield.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Thomas Gadesbe was baptised on 16 November 1679 in Little Horsted, Sussex.  He was the son of Edward Gadsby (c1650-1718) and Joan (c1650-1728).  Thomas was buried on 2 September 1750 in Little Horsted.  The burial register noted that he was the clerk.

Mary Thorpe's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She may have been baptised on 10 April 1679 in East Grinstead, Sussex and have been the daughter of Jervis Thorpe and Ann.  She and/or her daughter may have been buried on 30 March 1750 or 13 June 1753 in Little Horsted.  The Mary buried in 1750 was from Framfield, therefore, I think it more likely that the 1753 burial was that of Thomas's widow and 1750 of their daughter.

 

Thomas Gadsby and Mary Thorpe had 4 known children:

  1. Mary Gadsby was baptised on 17 October 1708 in Little Horsted.

    Mary had an illegitimate daughter:

      1. John Osborne was baptised on 28 December 1754 in Framfield.

      2. Mary Osborne was baptised on 21 April 1756 in Framfield.  She or her mother may have been buried on 21 May 1756 in Framfield.

  2. John Gadsby was baptised on 22 February 1709/10 in Little Horsted.  He may have died in Framfield and have been buried on 26 November 1784 in Little Horsted.

    John married Sarah Durant on 27 April 1738 in Little Horsted.

    Sarah was buried on 17 July 1778 in Little Horsted.  The burial register noted that she was the wife of John Gadsby of Framfield.

    John and Sarah had 2 known children:
