Joseph GREENFIELD (1593-?)

and ?Katherine? (c1595-1623)

and Elizabeth CUDDINGTON (1607-?) 

 

Joseph Greenfield may have married twice, firstly to Katherine sometime before or about 1619, and then to Elizabeth Cuddington on 21 September 1631 in Leigh, Surrey.

Joseph Greenfield was baptised on 14 January 1592/3 in Billingshurst, Sussex.  He was the son of Thomas Greenfield and Joan Penfold.  Joseph may have died between 1631 and 1653 in Billingshurst - the Billingshurst burial register is missing between those years.

On 8 June 1633 it was stated that Joseph Greenfield blacksmith of Billingshurst was aged about 42 years.  He was born and had lived in Billingshurst for all but 8 years of his life.  I assume that during those 8 years he was an apprentice somewhere.

Katherine Greenfield was buried on 26 November 1623 in Billingshurst.  Unfortunately no further details were recorded in the burial register.

Elizabeth Cuddington was baptised on 31 May 1607 in Leigh, Surrey.  She was the daughter of Benjamin Cuddington and Elizabeth Netleford.

 

Joseph Greenfield and his first wife had 3 known children:

  1. Thomas Greenfield was baptised on 9 or 15 May 1619 in Billingshurst.  A Thomas Greenfeild son of Joseph Greenfeild was buried on 22 December 1629 in Billingshurst.

  2. Joseph Greenfield, son of Joseph Greenfield, was buried on 26 February 1621/2 in Billingshurst.

  3. John Greenfield was baptised on 29 June 1623 in Billingshurst.  A John Greenfeild son of Joseph Greenfeild was buried on 7 January 1629/30 in Billingshurst.

 

Joseph Greenfield and Elizabeth Cuddington had 2 known children:

  1. Benjamyn Greenfield was baptised on 10 February 1632 in Billingshurst.  He may have been buried on 8 July 1675 in Billingshurst.  The burial register noted that he was from Summers.

    Benjamin may have married in about 1653.

    Benjamin had the following children:

    1. Elizabeth Greenefield was born on 16 November 1653 and baptised on 27 November 1653 in Billingshurst.  She was buried on 16 January 1653/4 in Billingshurst and it was noted in the burial register that her father Benjamin was from Summers.

    2. Mary Greenefeild was baptised on 24 June 1655 in Billingshurst.

    3. Thomas Greenfield was born on 22 November 1656 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted that his father was from Summers.

    4. Benjamin Greenfield was baptised on 1 November 1659 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted that his father was from Summers.  A child of Ben: Greenefield, Esq., was buried on 28 January 1660/1 in Billingshurst.

    5. Thomas Greenfeild was baptised on 22 November 1661 in Billingshurst.

    Benjamin may have married Mercy Shaw by licence on 3 December 1663 in Billingshurst.  Their marriage licence was issued by the Archdeaconry of Chichester on 1 December 1663.  It noted that Mercy was a spinster from Billingshurst, but the entry in the marriage register noted that she was a widow and he a widower and that they were both from Billingshurst.

    Mercie Greenfield wife of Benjamin Greenfeild from Summers was buried on 3 January 1670/1 in Billingshurst.

    Benjamin and Mercy had the following child:

    1. Elizabeth Greenfield was baptised on 12 December 1665 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted that his father was from Summers.  She was buried on 22 April 1666 in Billingshurst.  The burial register noted that her father, Benjamin, was from Summers.

    2. Susanna Greenefeild was baptised on 16 December 1666 in Billingshurst.

    3. Richard Greenfeild was baptised on 2 May 1669 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted that his father was from Summers.

    Benjamin had the following children:

    1. Samuel Greenfield was baptised on 10 November 1672 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted that his father was from Summers.

    2. Sarah Greenfield was baptised on 14 April 1674 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted that her father was from Summers.

  2. Joseph Greenfield was baptised on 6 January 1634/5 in Billingshurst.  He most probably married Susanna sometime before or about 1660.  (They have their own page.)
