Marriage Check in Lewes 1624
« on: Thursday 18 June 20 02:00 BST (UK) »
Hi all

Just a quick request here. Can someone double check a marriage for me for a man named John Homewood [or Holmwood or other variation] in Lewes St John under the Castle on 16 March 1659/60.

I am looking to confirm her surname. I know her first name is Frances and believe her surname was Peckham or Packham but now I cannot find where I found the details lol!

Many Thanks in advance
Matt

Hi Matt, according to the Sussex Marriage Index John Holmewood (combination of both spellings) married Frances PECKHAM in Lewes on 16 March 1659/60 and they were both of Fletching.

Hi Pheno

Thanks for that. I actually found my notes with the marriage on this morning, so it's good you've been able to confirm it.

I know when John was christened but so far I haven't had any luck in finding Frances however.

Thanks again
Matt
