Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Rev. Christopher Yonges was born about 1575; died on 14 Jun 1626 in Southwold, Suffolk, England; was buried on 16 Jun 1626 in Southwold, Suffolk, England.

    Notes:

    Youngs Family and Ancestors of Welding Ring both give his year of birth as 1545, but this appears to be based on a misreading of sixteenth-century numerals. The record of his ordination at Norwich Cathedral on 21 Dec 1599 says, translated from the original Latin, "Christoferus Younges Bachelor of Arts in his twenty fourth year, made curate of Carlton juxta Kellshale." A second record, on 6 Jun 1600, ordains as a priest "Christoferus Younges deacon, Master of Arts, formerly admitted, in his 25th year, curate of Carlton juxta Kellshall in the County of Suffolk."

    He was a graduate of Cambridge -- B.A. 1596, M.A 1599.

    In the chancel floor of the church at Southwold is a brass tablet inscribed:
