    Notes:

    From "Lydia Gaymer, the Wife of Humphrey Turner of Scituate" [citation details below]:

    Lydia was an infant when her mother died. She was about eleven years old at the death of her father, who in his will gave her part of a tenement called the Angell (located in Ockendon Fee, one of the five manors of Terling).

    Lydia Gaymer and Humphrey Turner were married in the parish of Sandon. No evidence has been found that they lived there, but a quote from The Essex Village Book [Chelmsford: Federation of Essex Women's Institutes, 1988, p. 139] may explain why they chose to be married in Sandon:
    Runaway brides in the 17th century did not all have to dash to faraway Scotland in order to obtain a quick wedding as the rector of Sandon, the Reverend Gilbert Dillingham, was only too ready to oblige. As news of his willingness and cooperation spread through and beyond the county, weddings at Sandon, which had averaged four per year, increased enormously. Between 1615 and 1635 the Reverend Dillingham married no fewer than 511 couples, including a daughter of the rector of Chelmsford, using an assumed surname, as apparently did lots of others. The parson undoubtedly grew fat on the wedding fees.

    Lydia married Humphrey Turner on 24 Oct 1618 in Sandon, Essex, England. Humphrey was born about 1593; died between 1 Nov 1672 and 29 May 1673 in Scituate, Plymouth, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
