and Sarah PLASTED (1641-?)
Swift and Sarah Plasted were
my 9x Great Grandparents. (Click
to see their place in my pedigree chart.) They married on 12 June 1662
at the parish church of St. Peter and St. Paul
in Wadhurst, Sussex.
Samuel Swift was baptised on 14 August 1636 in Salehurst, Sussex. He
was the second son of
Samuel Swift (1611-1660) and
Constance Reade (1608-1659). He died aged 75 years and was buried
on 17 July 1710 in Wadhurst. He did have a cousin
Samuel Swift born in 1640, but given that the Samuel who died in 1710
was said to have been 75, I think it more likely he was the one born in 1636
rather than 1640, but I could be wrong.
Sarah Plasted was baptised on 28 January 1640/1 in Wadhurst.
She was the daughter of
Henry Plasted (c1610-?) and
Samuel Swift and Sarah Plasted had 10 known children:

was recorded against her baptism. I have not found a marriage or
burial for her in Wadhurst.

in 1695 then to
in 1708. (They have their own page.)
was baptised on 9 October 1672 in Wadhurst. He may have been buried
in Wadhurst on 15 May 1738, but only the name was recorded and nothing to
help determine which Thomas Swift was buried. Another

Ann. And yet another
