Individual Note

Note that there is an Igi marriage record for William BENNET m. Elizabeth WITTON on 30 Mar 1786 in Steyning (!!)

 

Note that in the Rodmell Parish Baptism Register 1813-1914 the baptismal record of Henry BACK chr. 23 Dec 1794 states his father is John BACK & mother is Elizabeth nee WHITTEN.

 

The Steyning birth/marriage connection remains unproven.

 

If the stated age at burial is correct, it implies Elizabeth WHITTEN was born circa 1766.
