Nicholas GODSMARK (1597-1688)

and Elizabeth SLATER (c1605-?)


Nicholas Godsmark and Elizabeth Slater may have been my 9x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possibly place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 12 June 1628 in West Grinstead, Sussex.

Nicholas Godsmark may have been born in 1597.  He was the son of Nicholas Godsmark (1569-1635) and Elizabeth (?-1612).  He was buried in West Grinstead on 18 December 1688.

Elizabeth Slater's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

Sometime back I picked up the above from a web site, but I can't find it now and can't remember who was the researcher.  Also please note that I am not certain of my Godsmark connection and have yet to do some research of my own.
