Robert PLAW (c1660-?)

and Johanna PAYNE (c1665-?)

 

Robert Plaw and Johanna Payne may have been my 8x Great Grandparents.  They married by licence on 1 July 1687 at St. John, Southover in Lewes, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was issued on 30 June 1687 in the South Malling Peculiar.  It recorded that Robert was a weaver of Brighton and Joan a spinster of Cliffe.  Sponsors of the licence were Robert himself and William Lee of Brighton.

Robert Plaw's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been baptised on 20 February 1660/1 in Framfield, the son of Robert Plawe and Jane Hallanes who married on 4 November 1656 in Framfield, Sussex?

Johanna Payne's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

 

Robert Plaw and Joahanna Payne had 4 or 5 known children:

  1. Mary Plaa was baptised on 22 January 1687/8 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.  Her parents names were recorded as Robart and Hanah in the baptism register.

  2. Ann Plaa, my possible 7x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 20 January 1688/9 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.  The baptism register records her parents as Robart and Hanah.  She married John Howell in 1709.  (They have their own page.)

  3. Johanna Plaa was baptised on 8 May 1692 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.  Her parents names were recorded as Robert and Johana.  Might She have married Sargent Harman on 25 November 1722 in Brighton?  He was then of the parish of St. Anne in Lewes and she was of Brighton.

  4. Robert Plaa may have been part of this family.  He died as a child and was buried on 13 November 1697 in Brighton.

  5. Elizabeth Plaa was baptised on 14 July 1700 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.  Her parents names were recorded as Robert and Hannah in the baptism register.  She married John Howell in 1726.  (They have their own page.)
