Edward WEST (c1610-1662)

and Joan (?-1653)

 

Edward West and Joan were my 9x Great Grandparents.  They married some time before or about 1633 and possibly near Bolney or Cowfold, Sussex.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  No possible marriage for them has been recorded in the Sussex marriage index.

Edward Westís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He was of Drewits in Cowfold, Sussex.  He was buried on 10 August 1662 in Cowfold.  Might he have been the son of Nicholas West and Ann Hider who married on 26 September 1587 in Bolney, Sussex?  Nicholas may have left a will in 1626.

Joanís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 27 June 1653 in Cowfold and it was noted in the burial register that she was the wife of Edward West of Drewith.

 

Edward West and Joan had 3 known children:

  1. Ann West was baptised on 26 September 1633 in Bolney, Sussex

  2. Nicholas West, my 8x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 23 February 1635/6 in Bolney.  He married Anne Mitchell in 1662.  (They have their own page.)

  3. Henry West was baptised on 9 February 1639/40 in Cowfold and buried there on 15 August 1656.

 

Might Edward have had a brother Thomas West who married Sarah Gallop on 7 July 1628 at St. Anne's in Lewes, Sussex, and had the following children:

  1. Edward West was baptised 17 October 1628 in Bolney.  He may have been buried on 8 May 1681 in Bolney.

    Edward married Timothy Scras on 24 August 1653 in Bolney.

    Timothy, wife of Edward, was buried on 15 April 1676 in Bolney.

    Edward and Timothy had the following children:

    1. Ralph West was baptised on 29 September 1654 in Bolney.

    2. Sara West was born on 16 October 1656 and her birth was recorded in the Bolney registers.

    3. Ann West was baptised on 19 February 1658/9 in Bolney.  The baptism register noted her mother was Timothy Scras.  She was buried on 24 April 1659 in Bolney and the burial register noted she was the daughter of Edward.

    4. Thomas West was born on 10 March 1659/60 and his birth was registered in the Bolney registers, which also noted that his father was a butcher.  I would think he died as an infant, although his burial was not recorded in the Bolney registers.

    5. Thomas West was born on 30 March 1661 and his birth was registered in the Bolney registers.  The register also noted his mother's name as Timothy.  Thomas son of Edward was buried on 31 May 1670 in Bolney.

    6. Mary West was baptised on 22 April 1663 in Bolney.  The baptism register noted her mother's name as Timothy.  Mary daughter of Edward was buried on 11 June 1670 in Bolney.

    7. Edward West was born on 21 March 1664/5 and his birth was registered in the Bolney registers.

  2. Dorothy West was baptised on 15 April 1630 in Bolney.

  3. Sarah West was baptised on 22 January 1631/2 in Bolney.

  4. Ann West was baptised on 15 May 1634 in Bolney and buried there on the same day.

  5. Ralph West was baptised on 21 March 1635/6 in Bolney and buried there on 2 October 1638.
