Robert SPICER (c1590-?)

and Lettice CHAMBERS (1596-?)


NIBBS, Richard Henry, 1816-1893 : NEWHAVEN CHURCH, SUSSEX.  Brighton : R.H.Nibbs, 1851. An attractive antique print of the parish church of St. Michael, Newhaven, with figures in the foreground. Originally produced for the "Sussex Churches" series produced in 1850-1851 by the Brighton artist Richard Henry Nibbs., from: Spicer and Lettice Chambers may have been my 10x Great Grandparents, twice over.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart, via their eldest great great grandchild, and here via their youngest great great grandchild.)  They married on 4 February 1616/7 at the parish church of St. Michael's in Newhaven, Sussex.

Robert Spicer's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

Lettice Chambers was baptised on 10 October 1596 in Newhaven.  She was the daughter of John Chambers and Agnes Seirle.


Robert Spicer and Lettice Chambers had 6 known children:

  1. John Spicer was baptised on 1 January 1617/8 in Newhaven and probably died as an infant.

  2. John Spicer may have been my 9x Great Grandfather.  He was baptised on 18 April 1619 in Newhaven.  John married Elizabeth before or about 1650.  (They have their own page.)

  3. Robert Spicer was baptised on 24 February 1621/2 in Newhaven.

  4. Thomas Spicer was baptised on 24 September 1623 in Newhaven

  5. Stephen Spicer was baptised on 28 September 1626 in Newhaven.

  6. Elnor Spicer was baptised on 8 November 1627 in Newhaven.


Later Spicers were Fishermen of Brighton and I think it possible that Robert (above) was also a Fisherman.  I also think it possible that his son John moved to Brighton and was the progenitor of the Brighton Spicer families.
