Pre 1650 West Sussex Willard Families

 

 

With the aid of the Sussex Family History Group's marriage index, IGI and various bits I have gathered over the years, the following is my attempt at putting together the early West Sussex Willard families.  There were far more Willards living in the East Sussex parishes, but I haven't, yet, attempted to unravel them. 

The families are listed in rough order of the parents marriage.

 

1540's

1548-9 Eden Wyllard, third payment, Rape of Arundel, hundred of Bury, sitting of Sondy

1548-9 Eden Wyllard, Subsidy Rolls, Sussex.  Richard Willard.

1570 John and Edward Willerde of Rape of Arundel, hundred of Rotherbridge, Petworthe.  Rob. Willarde, hundred of Burye, Storingetown.

Allice Willerde, widowe, Sussex, Rape of Chichester, hundred of Eastbourne, Linchmere (James I)

Davy Willarde, Sussex, Hayshott (James I)

Thomas Wyllard married unknown before 1548.  They had the following children:

  1. John Wyllard was baptised on 7 May 1548 in Balcombe.  Only his father's name was recorded.  Presumably he died as an infant.

  3. John Wyllard was baptised on 27 October 1550 in Balcombe.  Only his father's name was recorded.  He may have been buried on 27 October 1550 in Balcombe.  The burial register notes that John Wyllard was a pauper.

There was a Richard Willerd and John Willard in the neighbouring parish of Ardingly from the 1570's onwards.  I think John was the son of another John, but could Richard have been a son of Thomas, or was he a brother of John?
