Sussex Marriage Index: Henry Lampard (or Lamport), c.1700
« on: Saturday 02 July 05 20:31 BST (UK) »
Hello:
I don't know if anyone has access to this item, but I am interested because the first appearance of our Lampard/Lamport family in the Steyning parish registers was in 1701:  Ruth, daughter of Henry & Ruth Lampard, was christened on 9 Nov  ...  which begs the question, where did Henry and Ruth come from?
Although I know that more often than not weddings took place in the bride's parish church, I'm hoping that a marriage index entry for Henry & Ruth Lampard (or Lamport, etc.) c.1700 will provide me with a lead.
Can anyone help, please?
Regards,

Checked both the SMI and BVRI - no Lampard (Lamport)Marriages before 1771 I'm afraid

Thank you, Suey.  I'll have to figure out another way... ;) ,

Hi Alison,
I love a challenge, so I used a few wild cards on the SMI to try & find your Henry & Ruth, lo & behold, this is what I found, I think it's your man!  The spelling, 'Staining', I would think is Steyning!  This has made my day, I hope it's made yours ;D


 Brighton, East Sussex,  Date: 27 Jun 1700:
 Henry LAMPER, Staining
 Ruth PAINE, otp

Gasp!! Yippee!! :) :D ;D ;D ;D
Yes, I quite agree with you about the variant spelling and, of course, this now allows me to research Ruth's family backward.  Thank for for this genealogical gift!
As for Henry, I still think he parachuted into Steyning just before 1700, as I've consulted the parish records and he does not appear in them before that date.  I should probably consider consulting the neighbouring parish records, too.
Well, Jane, job well done! and wow! Hehe,
Best regards,
Alison

What a lovely feeling, to have found him ;D

Alison, it looks to me as if your family of Lampard/Lamport's didn't start off with that name.  Much the same as my bunch, who started off as BRABY which later became BRAVERY as they moved from Sussex into Surrey.  Finding this spelling variant might be a major break-through for you!  I looked up other marriage's in the name of LAMPER on the SMI and the results are below, so that you can see the distribution of the name, which in turn might give you a clue as to where to look for your Henry Lamper's baptism,

16   Jun   1584   John   LAMPER   Katherine   BISHOP   Northiam, East Sussex
23   Aug   1608   Elizabeth   LAMPER   Robert   IDEN   Ewhurst, East Sussex
25   Jan   1613/4   Mary   LAMPER   William   TRIM   Northiam, East Sussex
13   Jun   1614   Margaret   LAMPER   Richard   FRAUNCIS   Northiam, East Sussex
25   Jan   1614/5   Mary   LAMPER   William   TRIMME   Northiam, East Sussex
13   Jan   1617/8   Joan   LAMPER   Francis   EVENDEN   Northiam, East Sussex
--   ---   1673   John   LAMPER   Jane   COKERELL   Archdeaconry of Chichester Marriage Licence
 5   Jan   1673/4   John   LAMPER   Jane   COCKERELL   Binsted, West Sussex
23   Jun   1700   Mary   LAMPER   Nathaniel   TALHERST   Bodiam, East Sussex
27   Jun   1700   Henry   LAMPER   Ruth   PAINE   Brighton, East Sussex
27   Dec   1715   Sarah   LAMPER   Thomas   MAYNARD   Rye, East Sussex

Me again Alison,
Just a thought, but as he's not on the LDS IGI index, I went to my notes to check those Sussex parishes NOT on the IGI, here they are,

Ashburnham, Ashington,
ASHURST, BOTOLPHS, BRAMBER, Bury, Chailey, Houghton, Hunston, Ifield, Madehurst, Merston, N. Chapel, N. Mundham, Parham, Poynings, Storrington, UPPER BEEDING, Washington, W. Hampnett, W. TARRING, Wiggenholt.  The one's in Upper case are very close to Steyning,
