Thomas WENHAM (1619-1681)

and Rejoyce (c1625-1662)

 

Thomas Wenham and Rejoyce may have been my 9x Great Grandparents.  They may have married in about 1644.  As Thomas Wenham senior, he may have married on 17 June 1680 in Herstmonceux.  Unfortunately the name of the bride was omitted.  The Sussex Family History Group's marriage index records that a Joyce Hastyd married Thomas [blank] on 1 June 1645 in West Dean, West Sussex.  West Dean to Herstmonceux is about 60 miles.

Thomas Wenham was baptised on 18 December 1619 in Herstmonceux.  He was the son of John Wenham (1578-1638) and Margery Ouwin.  He was buried on 13 September 1681 in Herstmonceux.

Rejoyce's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 4 March 1661/2 in Herstmonceux.
