Hi

Has anyone come across the surnames Ovenden & Brizenden from Mayfield 1600-1900 if so would love to hear from you?

Gary

Hi

I hope this thread is still active. I have Ovenden ancestors in Rotherfield, Mayfield and Withyham from the late 1560s up to the 1750s.

One ancestor William Ovenden (born 1605 in Rotherfield) married Elizabeth Cripps (or Crippes) in Lewes in 1631 by Licence. She was a widow at the time and I think her maiden name may have been Wicken. Unfortunatey I don't know anything about her background yet.

Yes they are on my tree.  William Ovenden married Elizabeth Cripps 21 Aug 1768 at Mayfield.  Dates are a little different to yours.
Their daughter Mary married Stephen Humphery 26th Sep 1805.  Stephen being the son of my gggg grandparents Walter Humphery and Ann Turner.
The name Humphery has many spellings...Humphries, Humfrey etc.

Hi Suzy

There are several William Ovendens in my tree lol! The earliest marriage I have is the Ovenden/Crippes marriage in 1631. Obviously these are not the same people as those who married in Mayfield in 1768 but they may well be related.

Hi

My Ovendens were in Rotherfield and Mayfeild in the 1600s before moving into Withyham in the 1700s. The confusing thing is that there are several people with the same first name and there are also a couple of marriages between cousins.

Thankfully I've managed to look at a lot of Ovenden Wills and these have helped me work out who is who.

I'll post a update with more details on my Ovendens later so you can see what I mean.
