      "Grace Daughter of John Ellesdon Gent born the 9th of January & baptized"
      ('Aprill 1654' written at the top of the next page, I don't think they refer to the baptism date; I think the lack of a date probably means the baptism was the same day as the birth) and on the following page:
      "Grace the daughter of John Ellesdon gent born 9th of January and baptized the 11th Febria" (under heading 'December 1654')

    Married
    • John's wife
      No other Ellesdon events found in Lyme Regis in the second half of the C17th than for John and his family and his brother William and his family. Their father Anthony had mentioned no wife in his will so appears to have died a widower. With evidence that William's wife was buried in Charmouth (from a monument there) it would seem that widow Mistress Sarah Ellesdon was John's widow.

      Children
      There is a large gap in the baptisms (or births) in Lyme Regis register to 1653, and a small gap from 1660 to 1665. It is possible that John had one or more children before Grace, and probable that he and Sarah had 2 or 3 children between John (1658) and Mary (1666).
