My Newnham Ancestors

An 8x Great Grandmother was Grace Newnhame who married Samuel Woolgar in 1699 in Mayfield, Sussex.  The couple settled in Henfield, Sussex.  Their entry in the marriage register recorded that Grace was the daughter of John Newnhame.  A John Newnham married Joan Kenward on 22 August 1625 in Mayfield and/or 23 August 1625 in Buxted, Sussex.

I also have a 9x Great Grandmother, Margaret Newname who was born in Lindfield, Sussex in either 1597, the daughter of John Newnam and Mary Nutley or 1601 the daughter of Thomas Newnam and Denis Pilbeam.  Margaret married Richard Purvey in 1624.  (Please see my Purvey page for my line of descent from Richard and Margaret.)
