and Elizabeth (c1670-1748)
were my 7x Great Grandparents. (Click
see their place in my pedigree chart.) They may have married in about
may have been born in about 1668 and have been the first born son of
(1648-1684) and Joan (c1650-1684). He was buried on 13 March
1733/4 in Beenham, Berkshire. He was a (poor) Labourer.
Elizabeth's date and place of birth
are unknown. She was buried on 29 February 1747/8 in Beenham.
Thomas Jennings and
Elizabeth had 5 known children:
Elizabeth Jennings was baptised on 17 April 1698 in Beenham.
Mary Jennings was born on 6 February and baptised on 11 February
1699/1700 in Beenham.
Robert Gennings was born on 9 November and baptised on 16 November
1701 in Beenham.
Thomas Jennings was born on 17 April and baptised on 18 April 1703
in Beenham. He was buried there in Woollen on 28 August 1728.
John Jennings was born and baptised on 17 or 19 May 1706 in Beenham
- he was my 6x Great Grandfather. He married
Ann Corrall on
29 October 1733 in Thatcham, Berkshire. (They have their own page.)
A Thomas Jennings married Joan Martin on 22 October 1693 in Aldermaston,
Berkshire. They had a son named Thomas born in 1696 in
Aldermaston, who went on to marry Jane Digweed in Thatcham,
Berkshire in 1722. As Thomas and Elizabeth, above, also named a son
Thomas in 1703, it would seem unlikely that Thomas married to Joan was the
same as the one married to Elizabeth. Therefore, there must have
been 2 Thomas's born about the same time in roughly the same area.
