Birth or christening records for Susan Streeter (m. Horsmonden 1609)

I've seen some confident dates offered for Susan Streeter (aka Streter or Streater), who married John Stringer at Horsmonden, Kent, England in 1609, i.e.

Christened 10 Mar 1588 at Tenterden, Kent, England; and

Born 20 Mar 1587 at Goudhurst, Kent, England.

Does anyone have access to a credible source for either of these?  I certainly can't find the christening in the Goudhurst history societies useful transcriptions or either item in the FamilySearch database.  Come to that, is there a decent source for the marriage being on 10 October in 1609?  

Thanks in anticipation,

Chris.

Saint Mildred was a Catholic Church.
Thanks Wayne.  Wool from Romney Marsh came in via Tenterden for the broadcloth industry of Cranbrook and the surrounding villages.  My own family had interests in both towns during the 17th century and I think it not impossible that Susan might have been christened in Tenterden then married in Horsemonden.  I'll go with that for now.

question your death record,Although it is within the realm of possible.

Yes, I wouldn't have gone with the death record either.  I'm only happy about the marriage and an entry in Hasted at present.  My problem is that, though dates are offered for birth and christening on genealoical websites, I can't trace primary sources to back them.
