and Ann Rabbett married by banns on 16 May 1745 in Wadhurst, Sussex.
(They were not my direct ancestors. George may have been the nephew of
my 8x Great Grandfather
George Swift may have been baptised on 15 May 1715 in Lamberhurst, Kent
as the son of Robert Swift (1677-?) and
Lydia Noakes (1678-?).
He may also have previously married Mary Lamberd on 25 June 1742 in Wadhurst.
However, George did have 2 cousins:
born 1720 and
George Swift born 1723. As George named his first known child
Lydia and second child Robert, I am assuming he was the one born in 1715,
rather than either of the other 2.
Ann Rabbett's date
and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.
and Ann Rabbett had known 9 children:
was baptised on 8 March 1746/7 in Wadhurst. She married Thomas
Botten by banns on 8 April 1765 in Wadhurst. At the time they were
both of Wadhurst. He signed his name whilst Lydia made her X mark.
The witnesses were A?? S?? (just can not make out the name, could be Anne
Summer) and George Chapman, who both signed their names.
The banns were published on 7, 14 and 21 April, but I would think this
should be March. Thomas and Lydia had 3 known children:
was baptised on 5 November 1769 in Wadhurst.
was baptised on 3 March 1771 in Wadhurst.
was privately baptised on 29 January 1772 in Wadhurst.
was baptised on 1 January 1748/9 in Wadhurst.
was baptised on 16 September 1750 in Wadhurst and probably died young.
was baptised on 24 November 1751 in Wadhurst.
was baptised on 15 December 1754 in Wadhurst.
was baptised on 4 March 1756 in Wadhurst.
John Swift was
baptised in February 1758 in Wadhurst.

Nichols by banns on 27 July 1783 in Salehurst, Sussex. But there
