John LONGHURST (c1590-1660)

and Joane NEELES (c1595-?)


John Longhurst and Joane Neeles married on 28 August 1615 in Rusper, Sussex.

John Longhurst's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He died on 24 April 1660 and was buried on 28 April 1660 in Rusper.

I am assuming John and Joan were born in the 1590's.


John Longhurst and Joane Neeles had 4 known children:

  1. John Longhurst was baptised on 1 October 1615 in Rusper.  He died on 26 June 1648 and was buried on 28 June 1648 in Rusper.  The burial register described him as John Longhurst, jnr.

    John married Elizabeth Redford on 13 June 1644 in Rusper.

    Elizabeth was buried on 23 August 1667 in Rusper.  The burial register noted that Elizabeth Longhurst was a widow.

    John and Elizabeth had the following children:

    1. John Longhurst was born on 22 April 1645 and baptised on 30 April 1645 in Rusper.

    2. William Longhurst was born on 5 February 1646/7 and baptised on 14 February 1646/7 in Rusper.

    3. Thomas Longhurst was born on 9 February 1648/9 and baptised on 11 March 1648/9 in Rusper.  The baptism register described his father as John, jnr.

  2. Elizabeth Longhurst was baptised on 20 September 1618 in Rusper.

  3. Mary Longhurst was baptised on 8 June 1623 in Rusper.  Might she have married Henry Somersall on 16 April 1650 in Rusper?

  4. Joane Longhurst was baptised on 22 March 1629 in Rusper.
