Robert SMITH (c1680-?)

and Mary MARKWICK (1675-?)


Robert Smith and Mary Markwicke were my 8x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by licence on 23 January 1705/6 at St. Thomas Cliffe in Lewes, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was issued in the South Malling Peculiar also on 23 January 1705/6.  It recorded that Robert was a bachelor and yeoman of Wadhurst, Sussex, whilst Mary was a spinster of Wadhurst.

Robert Smith's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been the son of John Smith and Elizabeth Wallis who married on 29 April 1678 in Wadhurst?

Mary Marquick may have been baptised on 28 November 1675 in Ticehurst, Sussex and have been the daughter of John Marquick (?-1727) and Judith Fissenden (?-1698).


Robert Smith and Mary Markwick had 1 known child:

  1. Robert Smith, my 7x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 6 March 1709/10 in Wadhurst.  He married Elizabeth Swift in 1734.  (They have their own page.)


However, there were also the following possible baptism:

  1. Robert Smith was baptised on 8 February 1707 in Wadhurst, the son of John Smith and Ann Lambkin.
