John WENHAM (1654-?)

and Mary CHEAPMAN (c1660-?)

and Sarah GATES (c1660-?)

 

John Wenham and Sarah Gates may have been my 8x Great Grandparents.  They married by banns on 5 May 1684 in Herstmonceux, Sussex.  John may have previously married Mary Cheapman on 11 December 1679 in Hellingly, Sussex.

John Wenham was baptised on 26 January 1654 in Herstmonceux.  He was the son of Thomas Wenham (1619-1681) and Rejoyce (c1625-1661).

Mary Cheapman's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.
