The CHAMPION Family of Sussex


So far, I do not have any known Champion ancestors of my own.


Can anyone help Brenda Yach and myself find Bridger Champion born about 1740?  (Please click on his name to view his family group page.)

On 18 October 1781 a Henry Champion married Mary Bridger, in Wisborough Green, Sussex.  The witnesses to their marriage were William Bridger and Thomas Bridger.  Could Henry have been a brother of Bridger?  Bridger did name a son Henry in 1781.  Might Mary have been a cousin of Henry and/or Bridger?

Bridger also named a daughter Hannah in 1768, and on 17 August 1775 in Wisborough Green, Hannah Champion, spinster married James Wood, bachelor.  Might Hannah senior have been a sister of Bridger and Henry?

(As and when anything new comes my way on the Champion and Bridger families I will add details to this page.)
