If anyone has additional proof that John CAMPE is the father of Nicholas CAMP or any other information about Nicholas or his wife Sarah, please contact me.

(1) John CAMPE, b. about Feb 1566 (christened 21 Feb 1566) in Nazeing, Essex Co., England, d. about Jun 1630 in Essex Co., England; m., 12 Jul 1591 in Roydon, Essex Co., England, to Mary GOORE (b. about 1570); they resided in Roydon and Nazeing, Essex Co., England; their children:

        i. Robert, b. about Apr 1592;
       ii. Mary, b. about Nov 1594;
[2}   iii. Nicholas, b. about 1595-97, m. 1st Sarah ____;
       iv. Jane. b. about Feb 1596;
        v. Sarah, b. about Dec 1599;
       vi. Agnes, b. about Jun 1602;
      vii. Joan, b. about Mar 1604;
     viii. John, b. about Apr 1607;
       ix. Lydia, b. about Sep 1613.
That Nicholas (#2 below) is the son of John (#1 above) is based on John CAMPE's will, on some secondary sources without documentation or with documentation that are also secondary sources, and some onomastic evidence. I have not seen any other primary proof.

     viii. Abigail, b. 29 Aug 1647.
