Biography

First Name

Some family trees try to modernize Sicely's first name by spelling it Cicely. However, all of the original records spell her name with an S.

Maiden Name

Sicely's maiden name in the record of her marriage to William Rippley appears to be Row but could possibly be Reve. Familysearch.org has indexed it as Row,[1] while Freereg.org.uk has indexed it as Reve.[2] Some family trees say her last name was Revell, but there is no evidence that supports that proposition.

Parentage

Sicely's parentage is unknown. Some family trees say that her father's name was George or John Henry. No reliable evidence for either proposition has been found.

Date and Place of Birth

Some family trees say that Sicely was born on 14 September 1554 in Blofield, Norfolk. However, no reliable basis for either that date or place of birth has been found. Based on her 1579 date of marriage, Sicely was probably born sometime in 1553-61, with about 1557 being a reasonable midpoint estimate. Since she was married and lived in Wramplingham, Norfolk, she was probably born in or near that town.

Marriage and Children

Sicely married William Rippley at Wramplingham on 5 July 1579.[1] She was his second wife. William and Sicelye had the following children, all baptized in Wramplingham:

  1. Elizabeth, bpt. 7 May 1580[3]

  5. William, bpt. 14 July 1588, m. 1st about 1615 _______ perhaps in Norfolk, England, 2d 29 September 1654 Elizabeth ________ in Hingham, Massachusetts, d. before 11 July 1656 in Hingham, Massachusetts (See sources and discussion in William's profile.)

After examining the marriage record for about half an hour, I think her maiden name was more likely Row than Reve. Familysearch.org has indexed it as Row, while Freereg.org.uk has indexed it as Reve.

Re: source 4 the( Geni Joanna cite) I've taken a look at that and there are some troubling date conflicts but the most glaring is that Henry was born after her death. We do not have a death date for Joanna. However we do have a record of William m Cecily 6 Jul 1579 and a birth of 28 Feb 1580 in Yorkshire. These dates would make Henry born two month premature if Cecily was his mother. There are death records for Wramplingham mostly under Rippley showing births. I'm leaning toward separating these two families at least on my FTM tree.
