I am looking for more information on John Gifford or Giffard, born about 1543 of Chesham, Bucks, England, and married Joan or Joane ____, who was born about 1547 and died in 1620, also of Chesham. John died 30 Dec 1605. I am descended from their daughter Elizabeth (b. abt 1567) who married Edward Sale. Does anyone know who John's parents are?

I too am looking for prove this connection. I have found various references to John Gifford's parents being John Gifford (1523-1563) and Elizabeth Throckmorton (b 1523). I am still working on finding solid evidence of this relationship, but the dates work out. One of the troubles I'm having is the notation in the NEGHR that had John Gifford (1543-1605) listed as a bricklayer. This occupation does not quite work with the lineage in terms of social status (gentry and lesser nobillity on both ancestor and descendant sides of this relationship), but anything is possible!

I too have heard about the same parents. If the Throckmorton line is for real, that may tie us back to Charlemagne. I have that line in another database. I've looked several places to see if I can find out anything and haven't been successful. Maybe I should put a message on the Throckmorton board.
