Andrew Godden's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me. He was buried on 18 January 1787 in Pulborough, Sussex. Andrew was
said to be of Pulborough when he married, but he was not baptised there and
his daughter's baptism in the parish in 1742 was the first Godden (and
variants) event in the parish. The only possible Andrew Godden
baptism in the IGI was on 1 March 1704 in Minstead, Hampshire, the son of
John Godden and Sarah Stride. Minstead to Pulborough is
about 60 miles.
Maria Knight was baptised on 17 August 1712 in Rudgwick, Sussex.
She was the daughter of John Knight (c1680-?). She may have
