1560s Ardingly, West Sussex

Kia ora

I am trying to sort out what I think are this woman's 3 marriages.

Any help appreciated.
In lockdown in Aotearoa

Her name was Ann Gillam when she married Nicholas Bancks, she was a widow who had been married to John Gillam, however when she married him it said she was a widow also.  I Wondered whether it was Annis Beldame.

Ann Gillam a widow wife of Nicholas Bancks mother of Mary Bancks
b.1558? Ardingly, West Sussex, Eng.

m.1572 Feb 9 John Gillam, Ardingly, West Sussex, Eng.  (can't find any children)

John Gillam eldest son of Richard Gillam m Alice Beldame widow 9 Feb 1571/2.  He died almost exactly twelve months later.  There may be a French connection since a John Gillham was a founder in Ardingly.  Have a look at
http://www.wirgdata.org/
and search for John Gillam.

You can view a transcript of the parish register here:

Unfortunately I can't see a marriage for an Agnes to a male Beldame prior to this in Sussex.

Thanks for the link to that marvellous site, WIRG, I did not know of its existence before.  I wonder how many similar 'industry' websites from those times there are around the country, it is very very impressive.    I should have checked the Parish records which I am aware of.
