It’s the 441st Anniversary of my 10th Great Grandparents’ Marriage!

On 13 July 1579, in Staplehurst, England, Thomas Usborne, son of Thomas and Ann Bridgeland, daughter of Peter and Alice Maskall Bridgeland, were wed.  The couple lived and died in Staplehurst; but their children did not.   Speaking their children they had 14: Thomas (1580), Walter(1582), Peter (1584-1586), Alice (1586), Anne (1588), Boy Child (1589-1589), Susan (1591-1591), Susan (1593), Sara (1595), Elizabeth (1597) [my 9th great grandmother], Mary (1599), Peter (1601), Robert (1602), and William (1605)!

Thomas and Ann both died in 1612.   Their daughter, Elizabeth, married Abraham Cruttenden.  They migrated to North America where they settled in Guilford, Connecticut.  The couple appear to be directly responsible for the Cruttenden & Crittenden families up and down the eastern seaboard of the United States and Canada.

This is part of the ancestral line of my Lee family.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
