Thomas READE (c1580-1611)

Jacob PRICHARD (c1580-?)

and Martha WOODLAND (1584-?)


Thomas Reade and Martha Woodland were my 11x Great Grandparents.  They married on 2 October 1605 in Salehurst, Sussex.

Thomas Reade's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He was buried in Salehurst on 16 March 1610/11.

Martha Woodland was baptised on 20 September 1584 in Salehurst.  She was the daughter of Richard Woodland (c1550-?).  She may have died before 1638.  Martha married for a second time on 11 May 1620 to Jacob Prichard.  The marriage register did not indicate whether she was a widow.

Jacob Prichard's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He or a son may have married on 17 January 1637/8 in Salehurst, to Mary Reeve.


Thomas Reade and Martha Woodland had 2 known chldren:

  1. Joshua Reade was baptised on 29 July 1606 in Salehurst.

On 18 February 1640/1 a John Reade married Elizabeth Stephen in Salehurst.  Might he be related to the above family?
