Thomas Wady was baptised on 27 August 1669 in Billingshurst, Sussex.  He was the son of Thomas Wady (c1645-1677) and Bridget Greenfield (1646-1689).  Thomas died aged 74 years and was buried on 22 April 1744 in Billingshurst.

Elizabeth Greenfield date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  (See below for some possible baptisms.)  Elizabeth may have been buried in Billingshurst on 4 March 1743/4.  Only her name as Elizabeth Wady was noted in the burial register.
