I believe he was born in 1550 in Dallington and married Jone Cheseman in Bexhill on 6 Sept 1579. He was buried on 25 April 1606 in Dallington.They had a son Thomas Vigor (direct line) but I do not know if they had any other children. You may know this already. I would be grateful if you have any info you would be willing to share. Likewise I would be happy to share any of the info I have found. Look forward to hearing from you. Email address is Regards Graham”
