Thomas William Burgess

b. 7 September 1875
MotherJane Burgess b. 31 Aug 1858, d. 1876
     Thomas William Burgess was born on 7 September 1875 at 71 Washington St, Brighton, Sussex, England.1 He was the son of Jane Burgess.
Thomas William Burgess was baptized on 10 October 1875 at Brighton Annunciation, Brighton, Sussex, England, baptised as Thomas William Burgess. Abode: Washington St, no father's name. The baptism also appears under Brighton St Peter in the SFHG index.2
Thomas's age at marriage appears to be 30 years, but the original parish register needs to be checked as the marriage certificate is not entirely clear; his age appears to be 30 years at first glance but it could also be 50 or 80 years. Thomas's wife, the widow Eleanor Morris, died in 1910 at Bird in Eye, Framfield and a Thomas Burgess, age 36 years, born Brighton, is found living at Bird in eye in the 1911 census. It has been assumed that this Thomas was Eleanor's husband. This does raise the question as to why a 30 year old man would marry a woman aged 69 years and vice versa! Thomas's father's name is given as Thomas Burgess on his marriage certificate but this may be false as his baptism shows him to be illegitimate and the father's name is not given.
On 3 April 1881 Thomas William Burgess lived at 18 Dorset Buildings, Brighton, Sussex, England, age 4 years, living with Mary Hanks, widow, 59 years born Taunton, Somerset.3
On 5 April 1891 Thomas William Burgess lived at Brighton Parochial Schools, Rottingdean, Sussex, England, listed as an inmate (as were all the other students), scholar, age 15 years, born Brighton.4
There is an enlistment paper for a Thomas Burgess, born c1877 at Brighton, to join the 4th Dragoon Guard at Aldershot as a musician. He gives his age as 14 years and 5 months. He was discharged on 21 Oct 1892 as "not likely to become an efficient musician". Under "next of kin" is written "no relations". He served 1 year and 47 days.5
Thomas William Burgess was a bricklayer's labourer on 31 March 1901.6
On 31 March 1901 Thomas William Burgess lived at No 1 Chalk Pit Cottages, Newhaven, Sussex, England, a boarder.6

Ralph Burroughs

     Ralph Burroughs married Margaret (?) on 2 September 1652 at Wilmington, Sussex, England.
Margaret was a widow when she married Ralph BURROUGHS in 1652 and BARNEDEN was her married name. The 1662 Hearth Tax assessment mentions a William BARNDEN in Wilmington, probably a brother of Margaret's first husband. Also mentioned is Sam BARNDEN in Litlington. The list of East Sussex contributors to the relief of Irish Protestants in 1642 includes a John BARNDEN in Litlington who donated four pence.
The East Blatchington parish records indicated that Ralph Burroughs and family were at Bishopstone at one time. Details from the parish records are:
1.11.1653 bap. Ralph, son of Ralph Burrows
18.4.1655 bap. Addam, son of Ralphe Burrows
11.6.1657 bap. William, son of Ralph Burrows
27.6.1659 bur. William, son of Ralph Burroughs died at Bishopstone
11.7.1659 bur. Ralph and Adam, sons of Ralph Burrows now(?) of Bishopstone, buried in one grave common(?).
23.9.1660 bap. Susanna, dau. of Ralph Burroughs
21.2.1667 bap. Margaret, dau. of Ralph and Margaret Burroughs
15.11.1669 bur. Margaret, dau. of Ralph Burroughs
There were no Burrows before 1653 in East Blatchington but there may be more baptisms and burials after 1669.
The Sussex Hearth Tax Assessment 1662 lists Ralph Burrowes in East Blatchington with one hearth.

Susannah Burroughs married Thomas Alce on 2 June 1678 at East Blatchington, Sussex, England.
There were two Thomas and Susanna ALCE families in East Blatchington at this time and it is impossible to differentiate them using just the parish register. The fact that two baptisms occur just a few months apart in both 1688 and 1694 indicates separate families rather than a remarriage. However, a will was proved on 7 March 1718 for Thomas ALCE which lists his children including Abraham. This enables the two families to be differentiated and proves the ALCE/BURROUGHS marriage as ours. It would appear that the other family left East Blatchington about 1694 to 1700 although one of their children (Elizabeth) is married there in 1711.1
The baptisms and marriages for the two Thomas and Susanna Alce's in East Blatchington are given below. Note that the parish clerk used their occupations to differentiate some of the entries. The Thomas ALCE in our family is a farmer as indicated by the above will.
Thomas Alce and Susanna Burroughs (married 2.6.1678):
13.3.1679 bap. Jane dau. of Thomas and Susanna Alce.
27.3.1681 bap. Thomas Alce, son of Thomas Alce.
7.6.1685 bap. Susana dau. of Thomas and Susana Alce.
9.9.1688 bap. Mary dau. Thomas Alce and Susan.
14.4.1691 bap. Abraham and Sarah, the son and daughter of Thomas and Susan Alce.
9.9.1694 bap. Margaret, dau. Thomas Alce, farmer, and Susan his wife.
18.4.1703 bap. John, son of Thomas Alce, farmer and Susanna his wife.
16.5.1706 buried Sarah Alce, dau. Thomas Alce.

Thomas Alce and Susanna Glidd (married 9.2.1687):
14.11.1688 bap. Robert son of Thomas and Susanna Alce.
17.6.1694 bap. Elizabeth dau. Thomas Alce, smith, and Susan his wife.

Miscellaneous (East Blatchington):
1684 bur. Elizabeth, widow Robert Alce.
22.5.1711 married William Munster of Lavington(?) and Elizabeth Alce.
1713 buried Thomas Alce.
5.2.1718 buried Thomas Alce.
27.5.1725 buried Robert Alce. (will 24.5.1725)
5.3.1728 buried John Alce.
6.3.1729 buried Margaret Alce.
11.11.1730 buried Susanna Alce, widow.
7.11.1731 married Abraham Alce and Ann Ince.
Susannah Burroughs witnessed the will of Thomas Alce dated 31 December 1718 at East Blatchington, Sussex, England.1
It is interesting to note the property which came to Thomas Alce via his wife Susanna Burroughs. She was probably the only surviving child in her parent's family as all the others discovered so far have died in childhood.
Susannah Burroughs died in 1730 at East Blatchington, Sussex, England.
Susannah Burroughs was buried on 11 November 1730 at East Blatchington, Sussex, England.
Note that the marriage of Thomas ALCE (smith) disagrees with that listed in the IGI. The IGI records the marriage as Thomas Alce and Susanna CHILDE, 1687 but the parish register clearly reads GLIDD.
There are a number of mistakes in the IGI listing of Alce's in Sussex. Firstly, the baptism of Margaret Alce, daughter of Thomas Alce and Susanna Childe (Glidd) has an incorrect date of 1695 (should be 9.9.1694). Secondly, the baptism of Thomas Alce, son of Robert Alce also has an incorrect date of 10.8.1649 (should be 19.8.1649). The correct entries for these are already in the IGI as separate listings anyway.

The following information may be useful for further research on Thomas ALCE:
5.4.1613 Richard ALCE m. Alce FEEVENS at Newtimber.
5.3.1615 bap. Alce ALSE dau. Isack ALSE at Ticehurst.
14.1.1616 Thomas ALSE m. Mary RELFE at Denton (8631733 59)
26.11.1616 George BEARD m. Agnes ALCE at Beddingham.
1621 Richard CAMBER m. Mary ALCE at E. Blatchington.
13.8.1627 John READ m. Elizabeth ALCE at Beddingham.
19.8.1637 John ALCE m. Anne CARPENTER at Alciston.
26.10.1640 Robert ALCE m. Elizabeth BEAN at E. Blatchington.
25.7.1654 Thomas ALSE m. Mary CARTER at Chiddingly.
3.10.1680 bap. William Alce, son of Thomas at Willingdon.
7.3.1682 bur. William Alice of Morning Mill in Willingdon at Jevington.

From the Glynde Parish Register (Vol 30 Sussex Record Soc.):
Baptisms are recorded in Glynde to Henry Alse & Anne (1661  1663), Henry Alce & Judith (1699  1701), Joseph Alce & Susan (1699  1709), William Als & Mary (1743  1754). Also,
1.6.1617 Thomas Alice junior of Beddingham and Jeane Peirce of Glinde were married.
20.2.1657 bap. Joseph son of Henry Alice of Ringmer & Anne
29.12.1661 bap. John son of Henry Alse & Anne
12.1.1664 bap. Henry son of Henry Alse & Anne
18.2.1662 Thomas Alse buried in Glynde.
4.4.1681 Henry Alce buried in Glynde.

The following information comes from the Beddingham parish:
10.11.1631 Robert ALSE married Joan HOWELL
23.8.1638 bap. Thomas, son of Robert/Jane
23.8.1638 bur. Joane, wife of Robert Alse
7.10.1638 bur. Thomas, son of Robert Alse
This may be the Robert ALCE that married Elizabeth BEAN at E. Blatchington in 1640.
