Disputed Biography

Although it is indisputable that a woman named Susan Jeffry existed and that she married a man named Robert Carpenter, there is no proof that a woman named Susan Pasmere Jeffry lived or gave birth to a son Thomas Pasmere Carpenter. The middle/maiden name "Pasmere" has been removed from this profile.

The following is known about Susan Jeffrey.

On 10 May 1599 Susan Jeffry married Robert Carpenter. No where does the name Passmere appear attached to her name. [1]

A Susan Jefry was baptised in North Moulton on 16 Jan 1572 in North Moulton, this is the only Susan I can find. Her father's name was John, no mother's name was listed. There is no way to prove this was the same Susan who married in 1599. North Moulton is some 90 odd miles away from Plymouth. [2]

Two children were baptized, Joan in 1600[3] and William in 1602 [4] whose father was listed as Robert Carpenter. No other childern are found in the St. Andrews Plymouth register. No baptism for a Thomas Carpenter can be found for 1607. No baptismal records can be found for supposed children Blanche, Anthony or Elizabeth. A Blanche Carpenter was married in Plymouth in 1628 but there is no indication of her birthdate or parents.

No marriage can be found for a John Jeffry and Joann Pasmere in Barnstable or any other parish in England. A John Jeffry married a Joan Avery in 1562 in Braughton, which is quite close to Barnstable. [5]

A search for Comer Jeffrey comes up blank. In fact I cannot find the name 'Comer' anywhere. No death record can be found for Susan or Robert Carpenter.

No death records have been found for either Susan or Robert Carpenter that can be attributed to them. There is no reason to believe that Susan was buried in London.

There is no documentation for the children linked to her now-- namely, Thomas, Blanche, Anthony, or Elizabeth. See narrative which identifies only Joan (b 1600) and William (b 1602). Should we detach the others?
