William Sedgwicke (abt 1579 - 1632)

St. Mary's Church, Woburn, Bedfordshire, England

William Sedgwicke [Unknown Sedgwick]
b. abt 1579
m. Elizabeth Howe 10 April 1604 St Mary's, Woburn
bu June 25 1632, Woburn, Bedfordshire St Mary's Church

William Sedgwick is described variously as being of Woburn, London or York. He has also been assumed to have been a member of the Guild of brewers however one unchecked source could challenge that;

Marriage license issued by the Bishop of London:. Robert Houghton of St. Olave's, Southwark, citizen and fishmonger of London, bachelor, aged 23, and Mary Sedgwick of St. Bridget als St. Brides, Fleet Street, maiden, aged 22, at the disposing of William Sedgwick of the said parish, haberdasher, who consents; at St. Brides.

William was church warden of St Mary's, Woburn. Most of the children were baptized there but a recent discovery has proved that he had other children baptised elsewhere - mainly in London.

The new information has been found in the Court of Orphans for 1634 which relates to William Sedgwicke citizen and brewer (ref CLA/002/04/335) and his 'orphaned' children - Stephen, Francis, Martha, Nathaniel, Sarah and Rebecca - search at a2a.
