and Mary BROOMHAM (1716-?)
Richard Nye and Mary Broomham married on 5 October 1735 in
Henfield, Sussex. (They were not my direct ancestors.)
Richard Nye's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.
Might he have been baptised on 12 December 1714 in Shipley, Sussex and have
been the son of Thomas Nye and Sarah Jupp? The Henfield burial register records that a
Richard Nye was buried on 24 June 1794, but only the name was recorded
and nothing helpful to identify which Richard was buried.
Mary Broomham may have been baptised on 2 May 1716 in Henfield and
have been the daughter of Thomas Broomham and Elizabeth Grombridge.
The Henfield burial register records that a Mary Nye was buried on 8
March 1762, but again only the name was recorded.
Nye and Mary Broomham had 4 known children:
was born 6 September 1736 and baptised on 19 September 1736 in Henfield.
John Nye was
born on 31 July 1739 and baptised on 24 August 1739 in Henfield. He
