Important note to our friends -
most March 10th is simply a time we begin looking forward to spring and
leaving the hard winter behind us. To me it's always a bit more
dreaded. It's the day the main hosting cost for this site comes
$1750. Consequently it's also the day I must make the decision
whether I am able to continue this service for another year or shut it
While I appreciate all donations it has been a particularly lean
year. I understand times are difficult but unfortunately expenses
keep coming in and a service such as this does not come cheaply.
helping support this site for another year with a small donation.
I enjoy providing the service and most of the feedback I get from users
tells me you are doing the same. Please take a moment and help me
it active for another year. For the address to send a check

Sir John (William) Palmer and Elizabeth Verney had four children. Sir
Thomas born 1574 died circa 1605, Katherine born 1579, William born 1583
died 1585, and Sarah born 1586/7.
[This information is transcribed from Berry's Sussex which I obtained a
photocopy of at the Parham House, home of Sir John (William) Palmer and
Elizabeth Verney, which was inherited from Sir Thomas Palmer and
Catherine Stradling. It has also been extensively corroborated, though
there are a large number of erroneous connections that were constructed
then replicated many times over the years. This book can be directly
viewed (a later version) at the LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake
City. You can see my scaned version of the photocopy at the following
Claims that William Palmer was the son of Sir John (William) Palmer and
Elizabeth Verney have been proven in error by Carlton Palmer in an
article in The Colonial Genealogist [XII:3, p 115]. The bishop's
transcript at Parham had been read: "Willm, younger sonne of William
Palmer, Esquire, was baptized on 18 April 1585." Actually it should read
"the child, William, was buried on 18 April 1585."
Or in other words, that particular William DIED as a baby at the age of
approximate age of two! I am related to that same William and Frances and
have ascertained William's origin. I requested the original parish record
film from the genealogy family history center, and it is indeed
1. A "!PLACEMARK!" entry as a child is just an informative connection between Walter Palmer of Stonington and John Palmer of Angmering. See the more detailed note in the later Walter Palmer note area.
