Personal Notes:
In 1669 John inherited Wargraves in Herstmonceux (map ref TQ 635 110) from his cousin Thomas Brightridge. This would seem to imply that John and Thomas's fathers were brothers, but their fathers both seem to have been named John, unless there were other John and Thomas's about at that same time. John sold Wargraves sometime before 1683 to George Hood. From at least 1692 until sometime between 1702 and 1707 he was the tenant of Courtlands in Herstmonceux (map ref TQ 617 160). Courtlands then passed to John Wilmshurst who in turn passed the property onto William Wilmshurst who relinquished the tenancy in about 1742/3. In 1702 John was the tenant of Gingers Green in Herstmonceux (map ref TQ 622 126). Gingers Green was owned by Thomas Delve from 1646-1659 and then by Joseph Delve, senior from 1659-1667 and then by his son Joseph Delve from 1667-1686 and then by Mary Delve, widow from 1686 until sometime before 1706. The Delves may in some way have been related to John's possible grandmother. Source-http://www.mandywillard.co.uk/surnames/brightridge/john_1595.htm
