William KING (c1690-?)

and Elizabeth (?-1727)

 

William King may have married Elizabeth or Mary sometime before or about 1710 and possibly in or near Burwash, Sussex.  No possible marriage has been found in the Sussex marriage index.  As a widower he may have married Susanna Jenner, widow, on 5 July 1741 in Burwash.

William King's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been baptised on 16 August 1691 the son of James King and Ann Hail, or, on 27 January 1696/7 the son of John King and Ann Smith?  The later date would seem unlikely.  Both baptisms took place in Burwash, Sussex.  A William King was buried on 19 August 1768 in Burwash.

Elizabeth's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 4 July 1727 in Burwash and the burial register noted that she was Elizabeth wife of William King.

The 1747 Window Tax assessment for Burwash recorded that a William King had 6 windows and as he was poor he was exempt from paying the tax.

 

William King and Elizabeth or Mary had 6 known children:

  1. Mary King was baptised on 4 June 1710 in Burwash.  The baptism register notes she was the daughter of William and Elizabeth.

  2. Samuel King was baptised on 29 July 1716 in Burwash.  The baptism register notes he was the son of William and Mary.  A Samuel King was buried in Burwash on 26 July 1717, but unfortunately the burial register only records his name.

  3. William King was baptised on 19 October 1719 in Burwash.  The baptism register notes he was the son of William and Elizabeth.  Did he marry Mary Elliott on 15 April 1750 in Burwash?  There was another William King born in 1723.  One of the William King's was buried on 4 September 1780 in Burwash.

  4. Thomas King was baptised on 29 July 1722 in Burwash and buried there on 12 September 1722.  The baptism register notes that he was the son of William and Elizabeth.

  5. Elizabeth King was baptised on 7 September 1724 in Burwash and buried there on 26 May 1725.  The baptism register notes she was the daughter of William and Mary.

  6. Ann King was baptised on 2 October 1726 in Burwash.  The baptism register notes she was the daughter of William and Mary.
