Sarah BURGES, Goudhurst, Kent, m. William MERRIAM 1580
« on: Friday 19 May 17 20:33 BST (UK) »
Trying to locate more information on my 9th-g-grandmother Sarah BURGES' family. Her father was Jacob (not James as is often found in trees) BURGES, as proven by his will.

Jacob died in 1590 and his will calls William MERRIAM (1564-1635) his son-in-law. He also names other sons-in-law but I haven't researched other daughters.

Would very much appreciate from anyone with BURGES or BURGESS in the 1500s on in the Goudhurst and Tudley, Kent, areas.
