Goddard HEPDEN (c1550-1633)

and Anne FRYE (c1552-1641)

 

Goddard Hepden and Anne Frye were my 11x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married sometime before or about 1580.  No possible marriage has been found in the Sussex Family History Group's marriage index.

Goddard Hepden may have been born in about 1550 in Burwash, Sussex.  He was the son of John Hepden (c1520-1583) and Joan Wenham (c1522-1591).  He was buried on 18 March 1633 in Burwash.  He left a will which was proved on 18 March 1632/3 (ref Lewes A22, 89).  He had Holmshurst in Burwash built in 1610, which bears his initials GH.  From 1622 to 1633 he was the tenant of Stonehouse in Brightling and it was recorded in the Robtersbridge Manorial records that he was buried on 28 March 1633.

Anne Frye was born about 1552 in Ringmer, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Nicholas Frye (c1526-1599) and Elizabeth.  According to the IGI she was buried on 27 May 1641.  Her will was proved on 27 May 1641.

  1. Elizabeth Hepden was baptised on 16 October 1581 in Burwash.  She was named in her grandmother's will of 1587.  Another source puts her birth at about 1592.  Might this Elizabeth have died young and then another daughter also named Elizabeth have been born to Goddard and Anne?
