When Was Joan Gawton Born?

+2 votes
Joan Gawton married Robert Drake.  There are 6 Jane/Joan Gawton profiles on WikiTree, and the birth dates vary from 1582 to 1602.  I have seen information that a "Joane Gawton was baptized on 10 November 1602 at Merstham, Surrey," but it didn't have a cite.  Is there any citation for her birth or baptism date?

Apparently it is in the Merstham parish records. There is a Joans daughter of Thomas baptised 1602 and another 1607. Sounds like the first one died.

A copy of the registers as an ebook claiming to be based on those at the Public Records Office is here:


I've checked it and the above are the only two baptisms for Joane Gawton. There are a lot of gawtons there.
