Verification & Concerns Returns to 'Top of Page'

  1. There was only one Robert Payne born in the period 1664-1698 (age 16 to 50 at birth of  first child). This person is very likely to be correct.
  2. Source 3 identified a possible Robert Payne  baptised 21/2/1693 in East Grinstead son of Richard Payne and Mary Pallatte, plus 9 other children. None of these could be located on the East Grinstead Parish register transcripts so are believed to be erroneous.
  3. Cannot find a marriage of Robert & Margaret (Sources 1,2,3 ), no marriage of any Robert Payne(sources 1,2 & 3) and no death of Robert Payne or Margaret Payne in West Hoathly
  4. No other children found ( Checked in West Hoathly, East Grinstead)
  5. Source 2 shows a Robert Payne married Mary Durrant in Preston, Sussex on 07/10/1706.
