  • ID: I1064
  • Name: Elizabeth PALMER 1 2
  • Sex: F
  • Change Date: 06 APR 2017
  • Baptism: 21 AUG 1709 Wingham, Kent 3
  • Death: 16 FEB 1742/43 1



    Father: Thomas PALMER of Wingham, Kent; 4th Baronet
    Mother: Elizabeth MARSHAM

    Marriage 1 Brook BRIDGES of Goodnestone, 2nd Baronet; Sheriff of Kent b: 12 MAR 1708/9
    • Married: 21 JUL 1732
    • Note:
      They were first cousins.
      From the Registers of Holy Cross, Goodnestone:
      "1732 July 21st. Sir Brook Bridges, Bart. & Elizabeth Palmer, eldest Daughter of Sir Thomas Palmer of Wingham, Bart. were married in Bishopsbourn Church."

      The Complete Baronetage states that Elizabeth married the Hon Charles Finch, and "was grandmother to George William, Earl of Winchilsea;" and that her sister Anne married Sir Brook Bridges. The Collins Baronetage (Vol.I, 1741) has Ann first marrying Sir Brook, then Charles Feilding, and Elizabeth unmarried. Betham, in his Baronetage (Vol.III, 1803) claims in the text that Ann Palmer was the wife of Sir Brook, but corrects the record on the chart, on the following page, linking the two sisters with the correct husbands.
      Records found in parish registers, of Elizabeth's marriage to Brook Bridges at Goodnestone and of her son Brook's baptism at St Martin-in-the-Fields, and of Ann's marriage to Edward Finch, confirm that The Complete Baronetage transposed the two Palmer sisters.
