John LANGRIDGE (c1620-1686)

and Alice FELDWICK (1623-1692)


John Langridg and Alice Velveek may have been my 9x Great Grandparents.  They married on 3 July 1642 in East Grinstead, Sussex.

John Langridg may have been baptised on 15 June 1617, the son of John Langridg and Rody Tayler (?-1619), or on 18 May 1624, the son of John Langridg and Bridget Homer.  Both baptisms took place in East Grinstead.  He was buried on 2 December 1686 in East Grinstead and the burial register noted that he was a weaver.  John left a will dated 13 January 1680/1 and proved in 1686, at which time he was a weaver of East Grintead (ref. A37-177).

Alice Feldwick was baptised on 20 July 1623 in East Grinstead.  She was the daughter of Thomas Feldwick (1597-?) and Elizabeth Wickens (c1600-?).  She was buried on 7 May 1692 in East Grinstead.  Alice left a will dated 23 May 1690 and proved in 1692 at which time she was a widow of East Grinstead (ref. A41-9).


John Langridge and Alice Feldwick had 3 known children:

  1. An Langridge, my possible 8x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 10 May 1643 in East Grinstead.  The baptism register records that her parents were Will and Alice, but I believe her father's name was wrongly recorded.  Ann married Thomas White in 1665.  (They have their own page.)

  2. John Langridge was baptised on 11 August 1644 in East Grinstead.  He left a will dated 3 May 1679, at which time he was John the younger, a weaver of East Grinstead.  He left all his lands and property to his loving father and mother, John and Alice.

  3. Thomas Langridge was baptised on 4 October 1646 in East Grinstead.
