My Wilmshurst Ancestors

An 8x Great Grandmother was Sarah Wilmshurst who married Edward Tutt in 1679 in Warbleton, Sussex.  She was born there in 1656 and was the daughter of Stephen Wilmshurst and Susannah Brightridge, who had married in 1648 in Heathfield, Sussex.

There would seem to have been 2 Stephen Wilmshursts born about the same time.  "Mine" married in 1648 and the other in 1650, both in Heathfield.  I am guessing that they were cousins, but who were their fathers?  Stephen married in 1650 named a son Simon and "mine" had a Grandson named Simon.  A Simon Wilmshurst married Elizabeth Peeke in 1607 in Mayfield, which is where the other Stephen seems to have settled.  And then to add to the puzzle, the second Stephen had married Sarah Wilmshurst who I guessing was perhaps yet another cousin.
