Hi, Thank you for your reply. It's very exciting to find links.
Since my earlier posts, I have finally made an invaluable find - absolute Wyatt family history gold for our side of the family! I googled Richard's name yet again and found a 2010 online archive document by Edward Basil Jupp (1817-1877) "Genealogical Memorandum relating to Richard Wyatt of Hall Place, Shackleford, Citizen and Carpenter of London..."
Jupp compiled his genealogical memoranda from the 'Visitation of Sussex in 1662 Parish Registers' and other sources.
The online document, I found to be difficult to navigate, testy and frustrating; however, it has monumental inscriptions, parish records, wills, signatures and -- genealogical charts :) Perhaps print pages as you access them; maybe 40-50 pages but a worthwhile investment.
If there are male Wyatts in your family, it would be worth looking into doing Y DNA because that may be the only way to definitively prove a line to the Sir Thomas Wyatts. The genealogies do not allow for it in our line. Sir Thomas the Younger's son Richardus (who is not even on all descendant lists)is recorded as having died without issue. However, a Wyatt genealogist early this century acknowledged there was a rumour that Richard was whisked away to safety in Sussex when his father was attainted and beheaded for rebellion against Queen Mary.
I would be very interested in your family crest. It would be fascinating to compare with the one my brother has been entrusted with.
