      The Howshir Book #2385, Rootsbooks

      Info submitted by Carolyn Goates Goates@aol.com Tue, 11 Jul 2000
      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
      website: http://www.familykinship.com/Palmer_pedigree.gif]

      -----------------------------------------------------------

      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
      confusing.

      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.
