My Possible Backshall Ancestors

My interest in the Backshall family begins with Elizabeth Bagshal who married Richard Silverson in 1724 in Edburton, Sussex.  But, I don't know for certain that she was my ancestor.  Her 3x Great Grandson, Henry Silverson, was the step-father of my illegitimate Great Grandfather, and I am speculating that Henry's elder brother may have been the real father of my Great Grandfather.

As yet I haven't attempted to trace Elizabeth's baptism, other than to search the IGI, which records that an Elizabeth Backshal was baptised on 20 October 1702 in Upper Beeding, Sussex, the daughter of Walter Backshall and Sarah Longhurst, who had married on 14 May 1695 in Old Shoreham, Sussex.
