William BOORMAN (c1683-1718)

and Elizabeth (?-?)


William Boreman and Elizabeth may have been my 7x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart.)  They married before May 1709.  No possible marriage has been found in the Sussex Family History Group's marriage index nor the Sussex IGI.

William Boreman may have been baptised on 7 December 1684 in Burwash and buried there on 25 September 1718.  If so, then he was the son of James Boreman and Elizabeth.  Another William Bourman was baptised on 10 August 1682 in Westfield, Sussex, the son of William Borman and Elizabeth Soals.

Elizabeth's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

On 9 May 1709 a Settlement Certificate was issued by the Overseers of Salehurst to William Boreman and wife Elizabeth, to settle in Burwash.


William Boreman and Elizabeth had 3 or 4 known children:

  1. James Boreman was baptised on 28 August 1709 in Salehurst.  His mother's name was recorded as Ann in the baptism register - was this an error?  Did this James marry Naomi Tompsett in 1735, Wadhurst?

  2. Elizabeth Boreman was baptised on 1 February 1709/10 in Burwash and buried there on 21 March 1718/9.  Her mother's name was recorded as Elizabeth at her baptism and the burial register records that she was the daughter of widow Boreman.

  3. William Boreman was baptised on 3 February 1710/11 in Salehurst.  His mother's name was recorded as Elizabeth.

  4. Thomas Boreman was baptised on 7 October 1716 in Burwash.  His mother's name was recorded as Elizabeth.
