RICHARD TICHBOURNE'S HOUSE OF CRIPPENDEN, IN COWDEN. By the Rev Canon Scott Robertson Cont'd

George Tichbourne, gentleman, a brother of John Tichbourne, was buried there in 1614; and that Robert, John, and Martin Tichbourne (younger brothers of the builder of Crippenden) were baptized there in 1567, 1569, and 1573 respectively.
    The builder of Crippenden, Richard Tichbourne, was, no doubt, born before the year 1566, in which the registers commence. He married Dorothy, daughter of John Saxbie, and by her had ten children, five sons and five daughters. He lived until 1637, and was then buried at Cowden on the 18th of October. His wife did not long survive him; she was interred at Cowden on the 25th of April 1640.
   Two of Richard Tichbourne's sons (John and Benjamin) died youn, in 1605. Nine years later another son of his was likewise baptized John in 1614.
   The eldest son Thomas, who was 25 years of age in 1619, was apprenticed to his uncle Robert, of London, citizen and skinner, on May 1, 1607; as Mr. Wadmore kindly informs me. He was buried at Cowden in 1642, and the register does not mention any wife or children of his.
