William GASTON (c1630-?)

and Mary PICKET (c1630-?)

 

William Gastone and Mary Picket were my 8x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They may also have been my 10x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart).  They married on 2 October 1655 in Ardingly, Sussex.

William Gaston's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He died in about 1681.  His children were baptised at St. John the Baptist in Southover, Lewes, but I have checked a transcript of those registers and his baptism was not recorded there between 1610-40.  Might he have been baptised as William Gasson on 30 July 1620 in Cuckfield, Sussex, the son of William Gasten and Bridget Barton?

Mary Picket's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might she have been baptised on 4 November 1627 in Maresfield, Sussex and have been the daughter of Edward Pickett or Piggott?

 

William Gaston and Mary Picket had 3 known children:

  1. Elizabeth Gaston was baptised on 30 July 1661 at St. John the Baptist in Southover, Lewes, Sussex.  Only her father's name was recorded in the baptism register.  As Elizabeth Garston she may have married George Laurence by licence on 8 July 1688 at St. Anne's in Lewes.  She was then a spinster of Lewes and he was of Arundel, Sussex.

  2. Edward Gaston was baptised on 5 December 1664 at St. John the Baptist in Southover.  Only his father was named in the baptism register.

    As Edward Garston he married Elizabeth Parsons by licence on 25 March 1690 at St. Anne's in Lewes.  He was then of Southover and she of the parish of St. Michaels in Lewes.

    They had the following children:

    1. John Garson was born on 24 December 1692 and baptised on 25 December 1692 at St. Thomas in Lewes.

    2. Elisabeth Gason was born on 23 December 1698 and baptised on 6 January 1698/9 at St. Thomas in Lewes.

  3. Anne Gaston, my 7x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 30 March 1667 at St. John the Baptist in Southover.  Only her father's name was recorded in the baptism register.  She married John Norman in 1694.  (They have their own page.)
