Thomas PENFOLD (c1660-?)

and Elizabeth YOUNGE (c1660-?)


Thomas Penfold and Elizabeth Younge married on 17 June 1686 in Horsham, Sussex.

Thomas Penfold's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He or his son may have been buried on 10 December 1745 in Horsham, but unfortunately the only other information recorded was that Thomas was a farmer.  He may have been born on 1 December 1658 and baptised on 19 December 1658, the son of Thomas Penfould and Mary Hull, or he may have been baptised on 25 March 1665/6, the son of Drew Penfould and Mary.  Both baptism took place in Horsham.

Elizabeth Younge's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.


Thomas Penfold and Elizabeth Younge had 5 known children:

  1. Sarah Penfold was baptised on 6 March 1686/7 in Horsham.

  2. Mary Penfold was baptised on 13 May 1688 in Horsham.

  3. Thomas Penfold was baptised on 6 February 1689/90 in Horsham.

    Thomas married Mary Ellis by licence on 30 September 1735 at St. Peter the Great in Chichester, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was dated the same day and noted that he was a bachelor and yeoman, and she a spinster.  They were both of Horsham.  Surety for their licence was provided by Thomas himself and Samuel Bourne a cutler of Chichester.

    Mary may have been born about 1713.  She died on 5 January 1776 and was buried in Horsham.

    Thomas and Mary had the following children:
