Thomas GRANT (c1620-?)

and Joan PENFOLD (c1620-?)


Thomas Grant and Joane Penfold married on 23 May 1644 in West Grinstead, Sussex.

John Grantís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been the son of Thomas Grant and Ann Miles who married on 3 May 1619 in West Grinstead?

Joan Penfoldís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might she have been baptised on 20 May 1627 in Henfield, Sussex, and have been the daughter of Richard Penfold?


Thomas Grant and Joan Penfold had 3 known children:

  1. John Grant was baptised on 24 November 1644 in West Grinstead.  Did he marry Ann Buck on 14 May 1685 at the parish church of St. John sub Castro in Lewes, Sussex?  Or was he buried on 20 April 1668 in West Grinstead?

  2. Joan Grant was baptised on 2 February 1645/6 in West Grinstead.  She probably married Thomas White on 21 November 1667 in Ashurst, Sussex.

  3. Thomas Grant was baptised on 10 December 1649 in West Grinstead.  Did he marry Jane Gratwick on 13 February 1676/7 in Ashurst?  He was then said to be of Steyning, Sussex, whilst she was of Henfield, Sussex.
