Nicholas Hudson

      There is an entry in the SFHG burial index for 1 Feb 1719 son of Nicholas & Mary at Newhaven St Michael. The transcriber has put "baptism?" next to it. There is a strong chance that Nicholas came from Newhaven but it is very difficult to identify his family due to Nicholas Hudson burials in 13 Oct 1712 (a yeoman), 1 Feb 1719 and 16 Jul 1724. There is a marriage of Nicholas Hudson (bap. 20 Jun 1682 at Newhaven son of Nicholas & Joan Hudson) and Mary Yalding at Newhaven on 11 Jul 1714 which looks promising though, with recorded baptisms for their children at Newhaven for Thomas (1716 - buried 1717), Thomas (1723 - buried 1724) and Joan (born 3 Apr 1725). An Elizabeth Hutson, dau. Nicolas & Mary was buried 25 Aug 1725.
There is also the marriage of Nicholas Hudson and Joan Ockenden (of Meeching) on 9 Mar 1674/75 at Newhaven (this Nicholas is probably the one buried in 1712).
Nicholas Hudson married Lucy Weller, daughter of Thomas Weller and Hannah Bartholemew, on 6 May 1750 at Eastbourne, Sussex, England, surname spelt HUDSON.1
A Nicholas Hudson, pauper, was buried in Newhaven St Michael on 6 Apr 1788. However, there is a history of the name Nicholas Hudson/Hutson in Newhaven so this could be doubtful. A burial for Lucy (or a widow Hutson/Hudson) was not found in Newhaven.2
