Whoops sorry, I misread my notes and the John I found was the one you found baptised 13 Mar 1691/1692.   :-[

Both John and Mary were both of the parish at their wedding and there doesn't appear to be any other John Tomset's of any spelling baptised at Withyham in the relevant time period but he could have course moved to there after baptism somewhere else.  John's father's name not recorded on SFHG.  FamilySearch Pedigree Resource File has John as the son of Richard & Elizabeth but it doesn't say how it came by that information so I'd treat it with caution.

Taking it all further back

Richard Tompsett bapt 1st May 1664 Rotherfeild  to Henry Tompsett and Parnell (nee Fairman)

Henry and Parnell married 7th Apr 1663 in Frant Sussex

looking for Henry's birthdate and parents -  I suspect 1629 Rotherfield to Henry and Mary Tompsett

this would make him 10 years older than Parnell b.1639

The ten year age gap not that unusual especially if Henry had been married before and widowed.  Have you explored that possibility?

Have you considered the Richard baptized at Burwash, 10 July 1664?
PR here (faint entry)
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-DT7Q-J97?i=70&cat=21522

Son of William Tomsett.

The register seems to be written in latin at this time (but that entry wasn't!)
On the other page, 3 April 1666, Thomas Tompset filius Gulielmi et Annae (or something like that!)
There are others, including James, 1669, Edward, 1674

Presuming Ann was mum of Richard also, and bearing in mind that first baptism of son William to Richard in Withyham, it just seems that the names might be better?

BT Withyham, from 1690 (William s/o Richard + Elizabeth is entry 5)

Rotherfield is a bit closer to Withyham than Burwash though. Burwash not far from Rotherfield!
Is this the Burwash William and Ann marriage?
13 April 1658, at Frant, William Tomset + Ann Casleden

Sussex Marriage Index says he was a husbandman of Rotherfield (banns record)
That banns record is from St Michael Lewes, and it could be a somewhat unusual find for this period?
March 13, 20, 27, 1658
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DRNS-KBS?i=452&cat=216864

On that record Ann is Hasleden! Of Frant.

There is an Ann baptized at Rotherfield in 1659, father William, but we are in a run of William Tompsett baptisms there, so not sure.
Anyway, at Burwash, could the first relevant baptism be 6 March 1661, John son of William Thomson? Previous image to Richard, down the bottom of the first column.
Indexed on FamilySearch, they think 16 March

open mind to all possibilities

I'm working back from Richard Tompsett tenement farmer of Duddleswell from 1729  (b1694)  the land passed down thru the family.

looking at all possible Tompsett links around Rotherfeild , Buxted ,Withyham and nearbye

I have wondered if Henry Tompsett b1629 may be the son of Henry Tomsatt b.1596 Rotherfield  and Mary Bacon

I've not been able to find that baptism indexed! But he may well be.
I am still a bit worried about this line.
What happened to Henry and Parnell in Rotherfield? Can't see her death anywhere.
But the son Henry (1667) may have married Mary Fitnes(s) in Chiddingly, May 1687
Five children baptized there, Parnell, Mary, Ann, Richard, Henry

This Henry was a blacksmith and left a will proved 1699.  Names sister Parnell (who she? Rachell in Rotherfield?), and daughters Parnell and Anne
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-69P7-5J7?i=135&cat=685691

There is a "Chatharine" Tomsett baptism indexed in Chiddingly, 1676, father Hen (FamilySearch). May have died shortly after?
Could Henry senior and Parnell have taken the family to Chiddingly? Answer, I don't know at the moment!
John

EDIT
Bap of Rachell in Rotherfield, 1670
