Robert WEST (c1650-1693)

and Mary (?-?)

 

Robert West and Mary were my 8x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married before 1674, but no possible marriage has been found the Sussex IGI or the Sussex Family History Group's marriage index.  A Robert West married Mary Munger on 3 March 1674 in Farnham, Surrey, but that couple had 2 daughters baptised in Farnham in 1675 and 1676.

Robert Westís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He was buried on 22 January 1692/3 in Pulborough, Sussex.  Might he have been the son of Robert West and Frances Fuller who married on 5 August 1639 in Billingshurst?  Might he have had a brother named Ralph West (c1650-1736)?

Maryís date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She may have been buried on 25 June 1689 in Pulborough, but this burial may have been that of her infant daughter.

 

Robert West and Mary had 7 known children:

  1. Robert West was baptised on 16 October 1674 in Pulborough, and buried there on 24 March 1677/8.

  2. Anne West was baptised on 8 April 1677 in Pulborough, and buried there on 16 March 1678/9.

  3. Elizabeth West was baptised on 8 May 1679 in Pulborough, and buried there on 25 May 1679.

  4. Sarah West, my 7x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 26 August 1680 in Pulborough.  She married my 7x Great Grandfather 5 59 William Willard in 1707.  (They have their own page.)

  5. Jane West was baptised on 16 September 1683 in Billingshurst, at which time her father was from Pulborough.

    A Jane West of Stopham, Sussex married Stephen Hurst of Billingshurst on 20 November 1710 in Fittleworth.  However, there was another Jane West who was baptised in 1688 in Billingshurst.

  6. Elizabeth West was baptised on 25 September 1686 in Billingshurst.

    Elizabeth may have married Peter Marden by banns on 22 May 1715 in Billingshurst.  He was then said to be from Wisborough Green.  However, there was another Elizabeth West baptised in 1691 in Billingshurst.

    Peter was baptised on 14 June 1693 in Wisborough Green, Sussex and was the son of John Marden and Ann.

  7. Mary West was baptised on 16 June 1689 in Billingshurst, at which time her father was from Pulborough.  She or her mother may have been buried on 25 June 1689 in Pulborough.
