My Reeve(s) Ancestors

I join the Reeve(s) tree with a 7x Great Grandmother Mary Reeve who was born in 1699 in West Grinstead, married in nearby Cowfold in 1723 to Daniel Beck and was buried in Newhaven in 1736.  Daniel was born in Arlington Sussex, which is about 25 miles from where Mary was born.  At the time the couple married he was a yeoman of Bishopstone on the Sussex coast.  I have no idea how they met.

Mary's parents were John Reeve and Ann Gardiner who had married in 1696 in Hurstpierpoint.  John was most probably baptised in Hurstpierpoint in 1671 and he was the son of William Reeve and possibly Sarah Geale.

I am very grateful to Kevin Reeves who has researched and provided most of what I know about my Reeve ancestors - thank you Kevin.
