Laurence WOOD (c1610-1675)

and Elizabeth CATT (1621-?)

 

Ticehurst parish church in 1907, from http://www.theweald.org/m13.asp?PicIdto=9900657Laurence Wood and Elizabeth Cat may have been my 9x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 3 August 1641 at the parish church of St. Mary the Virgin in Ticehurst, Sussex.  Laurence may have previously married Joan Cogger by licence on 26 December 1633 at St. Clements in Hastings, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was issued on 24 December 1633 by the Archdeaconry of Lewes, which recorded that he was a painter of Burwash and she a spinster of parish of St. Clements.

Laurence Wood may have been baptised on 4 January 1606/7 the son of Laurence Wood and possibly Mildred Bate, or, on 5 March 1611/2 the son of Thomas Wood and possibly Elizabeth Bennet.  Both baptisms took place at St. Bartholomew's in Burwash.  He may have been buried on 27 November 1675 as Laurence Wood or on 11 November 1697 as Lawrence Alwood.  Both burials took place in Burwash.  (Might both Laurences have survived childhood, with one marrying Joan and the other Elizabeth?)

Joan Cogger was baptised on 30 January 1613/4 in Etchingham, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Moses Cogger and Margaret Wilding.

Elizabeth Catt was baptised on 5 August 1621 in Ticehurst, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Nicholas Catt (c1585-?) and possibly Joan Ilgate (c1595-1632).
