Winifred Gunton
1606-16??

Winifred Gunton is the only known child of Jeremiah Gunton of Mepal, Cambridgeshire, England.

At her baptism in 1606, she is oddly noted as being the 'dau of Jeremiah and Robert Gunton' - which suggests either an illiterate or a lazy scribe!

Winifred would go on to marry Robert Barber in 1627, and the couple settled down to raise a family of at least four children. Sadly, the oldest two (both daughters), did not survive infancy, leaving the couple with two sons.

Robert pre-deceased Winifred in March 1638, with Winifred being present when his Will was proved in March 1639. It is unclear whether she remarried, or when she died.
