Amongst ten persons burnt at Lewes for heresy on June 22, 1557, we find W. Mainard and Alexander Hosman, his servant (Foxe's "Book of Martyrs."--Cit. S. A. C. xvii. 165)

The parish register, kindly searched by the clerk, Mr. Isaac Wade, records amongst the marriages, "1672, Mary 30, John E. Hosmar to Sarah Wood, both of this parish," and baptisms: "1676, May 28, John, ye son of John Hosmar," and "1677, Jany. 14, Thomas, ye son of John Hosmar."

The Rev. F. C. Harvey, M.A. (the Vicar), has kindly searched the parish registers and finds recorded:

"A consent of Marriage between Samuel Gilles of this parish, mercer, and Elizabeth Winter of Hastings, spinster, was the first time published March 29, 1657; second, April 5, 1657; third, April 12, 1657."

As there is no entry of actual marriage, it probably took place at Hastings; but the baptisms and burials of many of their children are recorded at Hailsham.

The initials of S E G are thus verified as Samuel and Elizabeth Gilles.
