here to see their
possibly place in my pedigree chart.)
Matthew Miriam's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.
He was buried on 25 July 1733 in Ifield, Sussex. (Not sure why I
think Matthew senior, rather than junior died in 1733 - I need to double
check.) Might he have been born on 30 January 1653/4 and
baptised as Mathew Ellis on 9 March 1653/4 in Horsham, the son of
