Mary Gascainb c1675 Heathfield
« on: Monday 02 April 18 16:29 BST (UK) »
I am looking for the baptism record and the parents of a Mary Gascain who the millennium file has being born in 1675 in Heathfield. it does not give her parents only the year and place she was born.
This is what I have on her so far but I really need to find her baptism record with father to move forward.

3. Mary Gascain She was born c 1675
She married Benjamin Clapson on 13th Oct 1696 at All Saints Church, Heathfield, Sussex. He was born c 1675. They had the following children:
i   Thomas who was born on 1697 Heathfield, Sussex; christened 18th Jul 1697 All Saints Church, Heathfield, Sussex
ii   Joseph who was born on 1699 Heathfield, Sussex; christened 20th Apr 1699 All Saints Church, Heathfield, Sussex
iii   Benjamin who was born on 1701 Heathfield, Sussex; christened 4th Apr 1701 All Saints Church, Heathfield, Sussex
iv   Susan who was born on 1705 Heathfield, Sussex; christened 25th Jan 1705 All Saints Church, Heathfield, Sussex
v   Mary who was born on 1708 Warbleton, Sussex; christened 20th Jun 1708 St. Mary's Church, Warbleton, Sussex
vi   John who was born on 1714 Warbleton, Sussex; christened 20th Sep 1714 St. Mary's Church, Warbleton, Sussex


Any help in finding mary Gascain's baptism and parents would  be appreciated.

Sorry to keep asking for help in this way but I have exhausted my research so far.

Gascain can be easily confused with Gascoine/Gaskin/Gascon and others.  I cannot see any earlier marriages in Heathfield who could be her parents on the Sussex Marriage Index.  Guessing that her father might be Thomas (from the names of her children) there is a marriage in Westham for Thomas Gasscen to Elizabeth Funnel 9th May 1762.  That is just a guess though.  You do need to look for all spelling variants.
