William HEWETT (c1590-1659)

and Annis MAY (c1590-1625)

and Elizabeth TRIBE (c1600-1666)

 

William Hewett married twice.  Firstly to Annis May on 3 March 1616/7 in Cocking, Sussex.  His surname was then spelt Huet.  He then married Elizabeth Tribe on 7 August 1625 in Cocking, and his surname was then spelt Hewett.

William Hewett's date and place or birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  His baptism was not recorded in the Cocking registers which began in 1558.  Might he have been baptised on 1 February 1595 in Bramley, Surrey and have been the son of William Hewett and Elizabeth Estune?  The will of William Hewatt a Clothworker of Cocking was proved on 9 February 1658/9.  (Click here to read a transcript.)  Very few burials were recorded in the Cocking registers between1655 and 1660.  William Huitt senior signed the Cocking Protestation Returns of 1641/2.

Annis May's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 2 March 1624/5 in Cocking, as Agnes wife of William Huett.  There was an Annis May born in 1589 in Angmering, Sussex, but she may have married Thomas Peter on 21 October 1612 in Angmering.

Elizabeth Tribe's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 2 April 1666 in Cocking, by the name of Elizabeth Hewett, widow.  By the terms of her husband's will, their son John was to give her twenty shillings a year and to keep and provide for her maintenace for as long as she lived.

There was an Elizabeth Tribe baptised on 3 October 1602 in nearby Singleton, Sussex, the daughter of John Tribe, but I think she married Henry Feilder on 28 August 1622 in West Dean, Sussex.  I think it possible that Elizabeth Trybe was baptised on 7 October 1589 in Heyshott, the daughter of John Trybe.  My reason being that 1589 Elizabeth had a sister Mabell born in 1594 in Heyshott, and Elizabeth and William Hewett named their youngest daughter MabillJohn Trybbe may have married Alice Trode on 22 September 1572 in Trotton, Sussex.

 

William Hewett and Annis May had 4 known children:

  1. Ann Huett was baptised on 26 February 1617/8 in Cocking.  As Ann Huett she married William Combs by banns on 30 June 1645 in Cocking.  He was then of Funtington, Sussex and they married with the consent of parents.  Ann was then of Cocking.  They had the following son:

    1. William Combes was baptised on 25 March 1646 in Funtington.

    Ann was mentioned in her father's will and was to receive ten shillings.  Her children (possibly four) were to twelve pence.

  2. Katherine Huett was baptised on 7 November 1619 in Cocking.  As Katherine Huitt she married Thomas Croucher by banns on 20 September 1645 in Cocking.  They married with the consent of parents.  She does not seem to have been mentioned in her father's will, but there was a daughter whose name I can not read.  In 1691 there was a Thomas Crowcher, tobacco-cutter in Midhurst, Sussex.  Thomas and Katherine may have had the following children:

    1. John Croucher was born on 16 May 1654 in East Dean, Sussex.

    2. Catren Croucher was born on 14 December 1656 and baptised on 6 January 1656/7 in East Dean.

  3. William Hewett was baptised on 12 January 1622/3 in Cocking.  William Huitt junior signed the Cocking Protestation Returns of 1641/2.  He and his father were the only 2 Hewett's to have signed the Cocking Protestation Returns.  William was mentioned in his father's will and was to receive ten shillings.

  4. Steven Hewett was baptised on 16 January 1624/5 in Cocking and buried there on 22 February 1624/5.

 

William Hewett and Elizabeth Tribe had 4 known children:

  1. Elzabeth Huett was baptised on 3 February 1625/6 in Cocking and buried there on 26 February 1625/6.

  2. Marye Huett was baptised on 3 February 1625/6 in Cocking and buried there on 26 February 1625/6.

  3. John Huett was baptised on 15 March 1628/9 in Cocking.  He married Joane Purslow in 1663.  (They have their own page.)

  4. Mabill Huitt was baptised on 3 March 1632/3 in Cocking and buried there on 10 March 1632/3.  Might she have been named after the Mabel Tribe who married John Burie?  John and Mabel married by licence dated 13 February 1601/2 and issued by the Archdeaconry of Chichester.  Mabel was then a spinster of Felpham, Sussex.  Or maybe she was named after the Mabel Trybe who married Henry Collicke on 19 April 1630 in Heyshott, Sussex?  Henry and Mabel were both then of Heyshott.

 

Only William's name appeared in the register when his children were baptised.

 

 

William may have had the following sister:

  1. Margerie Huet married Jefferie Betsworth on 16 June 1617 in Cocking.    Jeffery may have been buried on 29 March 1653/4 in Cocking.  They had 1 known son:

    1. John Bettsworth was baptised on 20 October 1620 in Cocking.

    Jeffery Bettsworth and John Bettsworth both signed the Cocking Protestation Returns of 1641/2.
