John GRANT (c1660-1715)

and Ann BUCK (c1665-1735)

 

John Grante and Ann Buck were my 6x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 14 May 1685 at the parish church of St. John sub Castro in Lewes, Sussex.

John Grantís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He was buried on 5 January 1714/5 in Henfield, Sussex.  Might he have been baptised on 17 October 1644 in West Grinstead the son of Thomas Grant and Joan Penfold who married in 1644?  Or was he the son of William Grant and Elizabeth Hilton who married in 1645, both marriages took place in West Grinstead, Sussex.  Or was he baptised on 5 August 1650 in Storrington, Sussex, the son of Thomas Grant and Elizabeth Lambe.

Ann Buckís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 21 August 1735 in Henfield.  She doesn't appear to have been baptised in Henfield, although a William Buck was baptised there on 20 December 1666, the son of William Buck.
