Richard JENNINGS (1606-1659)

and Joan (c1610-1677)


Richard Jennings and Joan were my 9x Great Grandparents.  They married about or before 1631.

Richard Jennings was baptised on 22 October 1606 in Beenham, Berkshire.  He was the son of Richard Jennings (1565-1649) and Joan Smith.  He may have been buried on 3 March 1648/9, or that may have been his father's burial, or he may have been buried on 27 June 1659.  Both burials were in Beenham.

Joan's date and place of birth are unknown.  She was buried as a widow on 31 October 1677 in Beenham.
