Grace Hearne

Female, b. circa 1665
     Grace Hearne was born circa 1665.1

  1. [S78] Will of Hannah Mead, widow of Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, dated 3 August 1728, proved 12 June 1729 in the Commissary Court of the Bishop of London. (Essex County Record Office, Wharf Road, Chelmsford, Essex, England. Reference: D/ABR 20/195). [DOC0024/WIL0018].
    This is an approximate date of birth, as also assumed for her sister Hannah. It has has been calculated based on the assumption that Hannah married about 1685 and was probably about 20 at the time. However, it is quite possible that Grace was born somewhat earlier or later.
