  • Lush family, Chichester, Sussex

    help me sort this line out please.

    my ancestor christiana mary white (1784-1826) married thomas gadd (1792-1845) in 1810 at portsea, hampshire. they were born in chichester, sussex, and lived there for the rest of their lives.

    christiana's parents were john white (c.1757-1843) and christiana mary lush (b.1757). i have never been able to find a death for christiana lush. they married by license in 1781 in chichester. the only baptism is in 1757 for christiana mary lush in chichester, parents joseph lush and martha: https://www.ancestry.com.au/imagevie...021&pId=535759

    they married in 1755, chichester, joseph lush and martha glover: https://www.ancestry.com.au/imagevie...021&pId=535746

    today i was looking through lush wills in the west sussex marriage licenses, wills and probate. i came across a will of thomas lush, bricklayer, d.1770 chichester. he mentions a wife mary, and dau christiana mary lush...and a brother robert: https://www.ancestry.com.au/imagevie...5a7e&pId=80562

    i can't find any other evidence for this family, and am wondering if i have the wrong parentage for christiana? even though the baptism clearly states joseph and martha, as does the the marriage?

    i think, but have no proof, that joseph was the son of william lush and christiana coates (both of st pancras) married 1719, rumboldswyke. there is a burial of a william lush in chichester in 1753, and one for xtian lush in 1754 same church. they had 4 children at chichester: john, peter, john, william.
