John MARKWICK (c1650-1727)

and Judith FISSENDEN (c1650-1698)


John Markquick and Judith Fissenden may have been my 9x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 20 May 1675 in Ticehurst, Sussex.  John may have first married Elizabeth Rooper on 7 March 1670/1 in Ticehurst.

John Markwick's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  A database at Ancestry suggests he was baptised on 2 April 1658 in Rotherfield, Sussex, the son of Thomas Markwick and Elizabeth Snatt, but this would have made him just 17 when he married in 1675, which I think was probably to young.  A John Markwick was buried on 18 February 1727 in Ticehurst.

Elizabeth wife of John Marquick was buried on 20 August 1671 in Ticehurst.

Judith Fissenden's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 5 March 1698 in Ticehurst and the burial register noted she was the wife of John Markwick, a labourer.


John Markwick and Judith Fissenden had 6 known children:

  1. Mary Marquick, my possible 8x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 28 November 1675 in Ticehurst.  She may have married Robert Smith in 1706.  (They have their own page.)

  2. Elizabeth Marquick was baptised on 4 March 1676/7 in Ticehurst.

  3. Ann Marquick was baptised on 23 February 1678/9 in Ticehurst.

  4. John Markwick was baptised on 13 February 1680/1 in Ticehurst.

  5. Thomas Markwick was baptised on 15 January 1683/4 in Ticehurst and buried there on 21 January 1683/4.

  6. Thomas Markwick was baptised on 27 December 1685 in Ticehurst.

    1. John Fishenden was baptised on 9 May 1652 in Ticehurst.

    2. Sarah Fishenden was baptised on 3 December 1654 in Ticehurst.  She may have married John Styles on 4 February 1677/8 in Ticehurst.
