My (H)Older Ancestors

I have 2 possible Holder lines of descent.

The first line is OK up to 4x Great Grandfather Allen Older who was born about 1775 in Sussex.  He was married and buried in Pulborough, Sussex, but his baptism was not recorded there.  I am speculating that he was the son of James Older and Eleanor Etheridge.  Eleanor had a brother named Allen.  James and Eleanor married in Billingshurst, Sussex.

My second line could link back to a 7x Great Grandmother Sarah Oulder who married George Noble in 1700, in Brighton, Sussex.  But this depends on whether her Grandson John Howell born in 1751 was the father of Martha Howell (1778-1813).  I am fairly confident of Martha's baptism and know her father was John, but I'm not so certain he was the one born 1751.
