d. 1798
     Susannah (?) married William Gladman, son of John Gladman and Sarah Rich, circa 1746.
David OBEE, 4124 55th Street N.E., Calgary, Alberta, T1Y 4B6, Canada is a descendant of George GLADMAN, son of William and Susannah. Details of all his research into GLADMAN are contained in his letter of 1.4.1990. This includes a list of GLADMAN marriages 1613 to 1837 from the Sussex Marriage Index (there is no marriage for William and Susannah), and a list of baptisms from the East Sussex Baptisms Index (no GLADMAN's listed pre 1700, earliest baptism is 1721). There appears to be a gap in the records around 1710 to 1720 when William and Susannah would have been married. Were some records lost?
Susannah (?) died in 1798 at Laughton, Sussex, England.

Agnes A'Downe

b. 19 November 1570
FatherWilliam A'Downe b. c 1530, d. 1580
MotherEleanor Saxbyes d. 1610
     Agnes A'Downe was born in 1570 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England.
Agnes A'Downe was baptized on 19 November 1570 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England, Annis or Agnes, surname DOWNE. Only the father, William Downe is given.1
The list of churchwardens for Rotherfield records John a Downe 1519-21, and William a Downe 1525-26, and one of these is likely to be her grandfather or great grandfather.2,3 She was the daughter of William A'Downe and Eleanor Saxbyes.
Agnes A'Downe and Isaac Alchorne obtained a marriage licence on 17 December 1599 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England, 17 Dec 1599, Isaac Alchorne yeoman of Retherfield & Agnes Adowne of same, maiden; sureties said IA and Edward ADOWNE of same, yeoman, brother of the maiden
This is the licence to marry and the actual marriage in a church has not been found and is not in the Rotherfield parish register transcripts.4,5,6
Isaac Alchorne was probably born at Rotherfield in about 1551 although there is no surviving record of his baptism. Isaac married Joan Alchorne at St Denys’ church, Rotherfield on 16th May 1580. Joan was born in about 1558 the youngest (?) daughter of John Alchorne of Adams and his wife Margery.
When his father Thomas Alchorne died in 1558 he bequeathed to Isaac ‘a tenement at Town Row, four swynes of land of the ferling of Town Frith, two swynes of the ferling of Dodd Frith, half an acre of Longley ferling, and twenty-five acres at Towngate, all of which lay in the east of the parish, several miles distant from Alchorne Manor.’
Below: An email received from Dr Robin Fox of Rotherfield in October 2005. Dr Fox is the present owner of Green House, Rotherfield believed to have been built by Isaac Alchorne during the reign of Queen Elizabeth the First:
I see that the Alchornes of Rotherfield feature on your website, so I thought you might be interested in the story of my house. The Alchornes have gone, but the family may remain in the ancestral memory of the beetles that survive in the timber. The house - oak-framed with large central chimney stack (now leaning perilously) - has been dated to 1580 or thereabouts. My father bought the place in 1935 and in the 1970s made some inquiries at the archive office in Lewes. In 1540 four Alchorne (or Allchin) men had children baptised or buried at Rotherfield, one being Thomas Alchorne of Town Row. In 1558 Thomas Alchorne bequeathed to his son Isaac a tenement at Town Row and 25 acres. We think it was Isaac who built our house. In 1580 Isaac married Joan Alchorne (a cousin, presumably), who next year inherited from her father John, a yeoman, part of Alchorne Manor (Adams Farm). Probably the couple thenceforward lived at Adams Farm, not Town Row. Joan bore Isaac four children - son d. 1581, Elizabeth bapt. 1586, John (bapt.1589-90), daughter - and died in 1593-4. Isaac married again twice, having a son Adam by Barbara Lockyer and a posthumous son Isaac by Agnes Adoune. After Isaac's death in 1601, the property was left to John and his stepbrother Isaac. Although John spent his childhood at Town Row (which was managed by the husband of his aunt Elizabeth) he seems to have decamped later to Adams Farm. Probably it was this John who sold the property (to John Chiesman) in 1651.The main part of the house has not changed greatly since Elizabethan times, and current repairs to the main chimney will expose brickwork that has not been touched since it was laid under the supervision of Isaac Allchin more than 400 years ago.
Isaac and Joan had at least four children – son (1581), Elizabeth (1586), John (1590) and daughter (1594). Joan was buried at Rotherfield on 28th January 1595 at the age of about 40 years.
Isaac subsequently married Barbara Lockyer at St Denys’ church, Rotherfield in 1596; she was born at Rotherfield in about 1575. Isaac and Barbara had at least one child – Adam (1597). In 1597 Isaac ‘held by deed tenement and land called Alchornes Newland and Old Rede comprising 60 acres. His land was adjacent to Crowbarrow (now Crowborough) Common and was bounded on the other side by the Queen’s highway. Barbara died in 1599 aged about 24 years.
Isaac then married Agnes Adowne at St Denys’ church, Rotherfield on 17th December 1599; Isaac and Agnes had at least one child – Isaac in 1601. However Isaac died in August 1601 aged about 51 years. Isaac bequeathed the bulk of his property to his sons John and Isaac. Source: http://www.alchin.info/volume1/volume1_004_part1b_descendants_isaac_alchorne.html.
