Family History


Leah Botten (as given in baptismal register) married Stpehn Stenning and were my gt-gt-gt-grandparents. It would seem Elizabth had four illegitimate children in Wisborough Green. Having so many even in days where one was fairly common must have been unusal. Was she the daughter of Thomas and Sarah who married in the village in 1762 but apparently moved to Billinghsurst in 1766?
