Stephen WILLARD (1615-?)

and Susanna (?-?)

 

Stephen Willard and Susanna married before or about 1638 and possibly near Fernhurst or Linchmere, Sussex.  I have not found a marriage for them in the Sussex Family History Group's marriage index.  (It would seem unlikely they were my ancestors.)

Steven Wyllerd may have been baptised on 27 December 1615 in Fernhurst, Sussex, and have been the son of George Willard and Alice Trybe.

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

 

Stephen Willard and Susanna had 10 known children:

  1. Steven Willard was baptised on 10 March 1638 in Fernhurst.  Both his parents names were recorded and his mother of Susanna.  He may have been buried on 9 August 1641 in Linchmere, but the burial register only records a name and date.

  2. Steven Willard was baptised on 24 October 1641 in Fernhurst.  Only his father's name was recorded.  He was buried on 15 December 1641 in Fernhurst.  The burial register noted he was the son of Steven.

  3. Edmund Willard was baptised on 15 May 1643 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted he was the son of Stephen.

  4. Susanna Willard was baptised on 30 June 1644 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted she was the daughter of Steven.

  5. George Willard was baptised on 6 September 1647 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted he was the son of Stephen.

  6. Robert Willard was baptised on 29 August 1650 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted he was the son of Stephen.  The Linchmere burial register notes that Robert Willard son of Stephen was buried on 1 September 1650 at Fernhurst.

  7. Stephen Willard was baptised on 12 November 1651 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted he was the son of Stephen.  He was buried on 18 November 1651 in Linchmere and the burial register noted he was the son of Stephen.

  8. John Willard was born on 29 May 1654 in Linchmere.  The baptism register only records his birth and that he was the son of Stephen. (Copy of Court Roll  ADD MSS/43,018  30 October 1692 Admission of John Willard, on the surrender of Susannah Willard, wife of Stephen Willard, his mother.)

    John married Martha before 1686.

    Martha was buried on 11 October 1723 in Linchmere and the burial register noted she was the wife of John.

    John and Martha had the following children:

    1. Susanna Willard was baptised on 3 May 1686 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted the names of both parents.

    2. Alice Willard was baptised on 1 August 1688 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted the names of both parents.

    3. Elizabeth Willard was baptised on 31 May 1690 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted the names of both parents.

    4. Mary Willard was baptised on 29 November 1693 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted the names of both parents.

    5. John Willard was baptised on 23 May 1698 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted the names of both parents.  He was buried on 14 October 1699 in Linchmere.  The burial register noted he was the son of John.

    6. Ann Willard was baptised on 23 August 1700 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted the names of both parents.

    7. John Willard was baptised on 16 June 1703 in Linchmere.  Only his father's name was recorded in the baptism register.  (Copy of Court Roll  ADD MSS/43,019  2 September 1730 Admission of John Willard, jun., on the surrender of John Willard, sen.  Conveyance (bargain and sale)  ADD MSS/43,020  8 June 1743 In consideration of 306, from (a) John Willard of Linchmere, yeo., to (b) Mary Feilder of Chiddingfold, co. Surrey, spinster, of all the trees, woods and underwoods on Goldhocks.  Copy of Court Roll  ADD MSS/43,021  13 September 1756 Admission of Mary Feilder on surrender of John Willard.)

  9. Richard Willard was born on 11 May 1657 in Linchmere.  The baptism register only records his birth and that he was the son of Stephen.

  10. Mary Willard was baptised on 6 May 1660 in Linchmere.  The baptism register noted she was the daughter of Stephen.

 

My Willard ancestry ends with William Willard born about 1680 who married in Pulborough, Sussex in 1707.  His wife was born in 1680.  I think it possible William was the son of Richard Willard.  Richard had children baptised in the neighbouring parish of West Chiltington in 1676, 1684, 1687, 1690 and 1696.  I am further guessing that Richard was born about 1650 and that he may have been the son of a Richard Willard who had a daughter baptised in Pulborough in 1646.  There are many missing pieces in my early Willard ancestry, so I am trying to piece together other Willard families in an effort to eliminate them my family tree.
