Widow Nynne in 1550 as depicted in the 1992 Rotherfield Pageant (costume design by Alison Organ)
     Joan (?) was born circa 1500.
Joan (?) married John Barber alias Nynne circa 1525 at England.
In 1992 a pageant was staged in Rotherfield to celebrate 1200 years of church and village history. There were many characters in the pageant that were based on real people and those chosen for the 1550s included "Widow Nynne". The writer of the pageant, Jean McConnell, obviously knew her local history as the other characters for the 1550s are Ann Ashdown who was burnt at the stake for heresy in 1557 and Joan Hosmer who was the mother of Alexander Hosmer who was also burnt at the stake with Ann. Widow Nynne was probably included because the family is mentioned a number of times in the church records (there is the Joan Nynne burial in 1577 and Widow Nynne burials in 1595 and 1638). The character Widow Nynne was played by actor Alison Organ who also designed the costumes.

Joan (?) was buried on 13 July 1577 at St Denys, Rotherfield, Sussex, England, recorded as Joan NYNNE alias BARBER.1
