I assume from this that a Jane Croucher was christened in Ferring in 1671, parents William and Sarah, but it was not this Jane (there were three other children christened at similar but different dates), but the Jean Croutcher who married Thomas Richardson in 1692, and that this Jane was born before 1665, parents unknown. I also believe that this John Bennett was christened in Ferring in 1652, and did not come from Horsham. All the children were christened in Ferring except for Anne who was christened in Sutton (and who may not have been a child of Jane although I cannot identify another Jane).
