Biography

After having researched the church records for Withyham Parish in Sussex, it appears that there was only one Avis family in Withyham having children during the 1660s and 1670s - John and Susan. Among their nine recorded children was one Anne, but she was born in 1684, the year after this Ann died at an age of about 23, and 24 years after John and Susan's marriage.

It seems reasonable to assume that Ann was the first child of John and Susan, her birth unrecorded for some reason, The second Anne was born seven years after John and Susan's previous child, Mary (1677) and almost exactly nine months after Ann's death. Is this a tragic and romantic story? Was Anne conceived and named in honour of her departed eldest sibling?

Another possibility is that the 1684 birth date for Anne was a transcription error, but it wouldn't have been an obvious one - 1660 or 1661 becoming 1684?

I have chosen to assume Ann was the daughter of John and Susan, but this is far from certain. [1]
