Richard NORMAN (c1560-?)

and Joan (c1570-1613)


Richard Norman and Joan married sometime before 1606.  No possible marriage has been found for them in the Sussex or Surrey Marriage Indexes, or the IGI.

Richard Norman's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

Joan's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She may have been killed by a forgeman and have been buried on 28 May 1613 in Cuckfield, Sussex.  The burial register records her as Joan wife of old Richard Norman.


Richard Norman and Joan may have had 3 children:

  1. Elizabeth Norman was baptised on 27 April 1606 in Cuckfield.  Her parents were named as Rychard and Joan in the baptism register.  On 30 September 1614, Elizabeth Norman of Cuckfield, daughter of Richard Norman a forgeman of Cuckfield, was apprenticed in housewifery to Roger Butler, gentleman and his wife Elizabeth, until she was 21 years of age.

  2. Marie Norman was baptised on 16 May 1607 in Slaugham, although her baptism was recorded in the Cuckfield register.  The baptism register records that she was the daughter of old Richard Norman.

  3. James Norman was baptised on 21 April 1611 in Cuckfield and buried there on 10 July 1612.  The baptism register records that he was the son of old Richard Norman.


Richard may also have been the father of:

  1. Richard Norman, my 10x Great Grandfather, may have been born in the 1580's.  He married Bridget Mitten, widow in 1610.  (They have their own page.)

  2. Susan Norman married Henry Blaber on 27 November 1614 in Cuckfield.
