Thomas STEPHENS (1687-?)

and Mary PECKHAM (c1690-?)


Thomas Stephens and Mary Peckham may have been my 7x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by licence on  4 May 1710 at St. Anneís, Lewes, Sussex (according to the Sussex Family History Groupís marriage index).  The IGI says they married in Framfield, Sussex - I havenít yet checked the original registers of either parish.

Thomas Stephens was baptised 3 January 1687/8 in Billingshurst, Sussex.  He was the son of 5 187 Thomas Stephens (c1660-?).

Mary Peckhamsís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me. 


Thomas Stephens and Mary Peckham had 3 known children:

  1. William Stephens was baptised on 23 April 1710 in Billingshurst.

  2. Daniel Stephens was baptised on 25 January 1714/5 in Billingshurt.

  3. Sarah Stephens, my 6x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 17 May 1717 in Billingshurst.  She married John Brooks in 1740.  (They have their own page.)
