Richard Gunn

      Richard's baptism has not been found but it appears that there is a link to the GUNNs in Patcham, a family of yeomen. The records are quite sparse and are either incomplete, or baptisms were never carried out.
There is another family, also a Richard and Joan GUNN, who were having children before Richard and Joan ESTWARD married in 1656/57. This could is likely Richard GUNN, yeoman from Iford who married Joan GOODWIN of Ringmer on 6 Feb 1636/37 by licence at Lewes All Saints.1
Richard Gunn married Joan Estward, daughter of Nicholas Estward and Joan Burges, on 13 January 1656/57 at Patcham, Sussex, England, both of Brighton. Richard is a shoemaker. Surname spelt GUNNE.1

FatherRichard Gunn
MotherJoan Estward b. 12 Nov 1626
     William Gunn was baptized on 11 April 1658 at St Nicholas Church, Brighton, Sussex, England, It becomes difficult placing people in families from these records, as there are a number of Richard Gunns, and it appears there was significant movement between Patcham, Iford, Lewes and Brighton. There is definitely a clan of Gunns who are yeoman in Patcham/Iford.1 He was the son of Richard Gunn and Joan Estward.
Another possible marriage is William Gunn married Ann Curde 10 Nov 1684 at Lewes St John sub Castro. However, there is nothng to indicate where they lived. Th marriage to Ann Friend at least says that William is from Bri'helmston.2
William Gunn and Ann Friend obtained a marriage licence on 18 December 1684 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England, William is "of Brightelmston" and Ann is a maiden of the same parish. Surname spelt FREIND.2
