Edward NEWNHAM (1648-?)

and Susanna BALCOMBE (1649-?)

 

Edward Newnham and Susanna Balcombe married by licence on 9 November 1676 at All Saints in Lewes, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was issued on the same day by the Archdeaconry of Lewes, which mentioned that she was a maiden and they were both of Ardingly.  Surety for the licence was provided by Edward himself and Ninion Tasker.   (They were not my direct ancestors.)  In 1672, Ninian Tasker of Balcombe was granted a licence to hold Baptist meetings in his house, although he was not said to be a Baptist.  Ninian was most probably baptised in Balcombe in 1643.

Edward Newneham may have been baptised on 17 April 1648 in Ardingly, Sussex, the son of Edward Newneham (1618-1680) and Jane (?-1675), as per a transcript of the registers.  (Edward Newman of Ardingly married Joan Paine of Balcombe on 23 October 1643 at St. John sub Castro in Lewes.)

Susanna Balcomb was baptised on 4 April 1649 in West Hoathly, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Edward Balcomb and possibly Elizabeth Stacey.

Presumably they both died after 1679, although neither appear to have been buried in Ardingly.  Might Edward have pre deceased Susanna, and might she have married Thomas Pilbeame on 11 November 1680 in Ardingly?  Edward senior died in May 1680 of old age, so I think that was the burial of the Edward born in 1618 rather than 1648.  Unless Susanna married the elder Edward after the death of his wife Jane/Joan.  There was also an Edward born in 1639 in Ardingly, so I am not at all certain that 1648 Edward was the one who married Susanna.

The more I think about this family group, the more I am inclined to think 1618 Edward married Susanna and that she married Thomas after Edward's death in 1680.

 

Edward Newnham and Susanna Balcombe had 2 known children:

  1. John Newnham was baptised on 27 September 1677 in Ardingly.  John married Elizabeth Wilson in 1701.  (They have their own page.)

  2. Susanna Newnham was baptised on 23 May 1679 in Ardingly.  She may have died between 1742 and 1750.

    Susanna married Thomas West on 27 April 1699 in Ardingly.

 

Thomas Pilbeame was buried on 22 December 1700 in Ardingly.  The burial register noted that he was the husband of Susanna Pilbeame.  An index of wills notes that a Thomas Pilbeam of Ardingly left a will in 1701.  Mrs. Susanna Pilbeame was buried on 23 April 1726 in Ardingly.

Thomas Pilbeame and Susanna had the following children:

  1. Thomas Pilbeame was baptised 10 September 1681 in Ardingly.

  2. Elizabeth Pilbeame was baptised on 19 May 1683 in Ardingly.  Elizabeth may have married Thomas Box on 10 April 1711 in Ardingly.

  3. John Pilbeame was baptised on 16 September 1685 in Ardingly.

  4. Mary Pilbeame was baptised on 13 December 1687 in Ardingly.

  5. Thomas Pilbeame was baptised on 23 August 1689 in Ardingly.

  6. George Pilbeame was baptised on 24 March 1692 in Ardingly.

 

If the Susanna born in 1649 did marry for a second time to Thomas, then she would have been about 43 when George was born in 1692, which would seem to fit time wise.  And, if she died in 1726, she would have been about 76/77.  However, given that Susanna had a son John in 1677 whom it would seem married in 1701, would she have named another son John in 1685, albeit with a different surname?  As the burial register indicated that she was a Mrs., and as this then usually implied a person of some standing in the community, might she have left a will?
