Thomas HYLAND (1647-1730)

and Susan CLIFTON (c1650-1730)


Thomas Hyland and Susan Clifton married on 23 September 1669 in Dallington, Sussex.  At the time they were both of Ticehurst, Sussex.

Thomas Highland was baptised on 9 May 1647 in Dallington, the son of George Hyland (c1620-?) and Ann Selmes (1622-?).  He was buried on 15 February 1729/30 in Ticehurst.

Susan Clifton's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 30 March 1730 in Ticehurst.  Might she have been the daughter of John Clifton and Rachel Feild who married in Wadhurst, Sussex on 30 September 1647?
