Thomas WHITE (c1640-?)

and Joan (c1640-?)

and Ann LANGRIDGE (1643-1682)


Thomas White and Ann Langeredge may have been my 8x Great Grandparents.  They married on 2 January 1665/6 in East Grinstead, Sussex.  Thomas had previously married Jone.  No possible marriage for them has been found in the Sussex or Surrey marriage indexes.

Thomas White's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

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

Ann Langridge was baptised on 10 May 1643 in East Grinstead.  She was the daughter of John Langridge (c1620-1686) and Alice Fieldwick (1623-1692).  Ann White, widow was buried on 25 August 1682 in East Grinstead (thanks to Nigel Sawyer for finding this date).


Thomas White and Joan had 1 known son:

  1. John White was baptised on 14 January 1662/3 in East Grinstead.  Both his parents were named in the baptism register.  He may have married Elizabeth Doust on 22 October 1693 in East Grinstead. 


Thomas White and Ann Langridge had 3 known children:

  1. Judith White, my possible my 7x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 10 November 1666 in East Grinstead.  She may have married my 7x Great Grandfather John Comber (1660-1729) in 1690 in Balcombe, Sussex.  Or instead, she may have married Thomas Dumbrill on 5 May 1698 in East Chiltington, Sussex.  (I have checked a transcript of the East Chiltington register and there were no further details recorded against their marriage, nor were there any Dumbrill children baptised in East Chiltington between 1700-25.)  Judith baptised in November 1666 was the granddaughter of John and Alice Langridge, both of whom left wills, and nether mentioned their granddaughter Judith.

  2. An unbaptised daughter of Thomas White was buried on 10 November 1666 in East Grinstead - a twin to Judith?  (Thanks to Nigel Sawyer for finding this date.)

  3. William White was baptised on 11 December 1668 in East Grinstead.
