A manuscript pedigree on vellum tracing the line of descent of the Overington family of Kirdford in West Sussex from 1620 to 1674, recording family baptisms, dates and times of birth, and deaths.

The pedigree traces the line of descent from ‘Thomas the sonne of Richard / Overington … baptised at Kerdford the 18th day of May / Anno Domi 1620’ to ‘Thomas the son of … Richard … born the 10 of March and babtised / At home / In the yeare of ouer Lord god 1674’. West Sussex Record Office records Thomas Overington’s baptism in 1620 at St John the Baptist in Kirdford and an undated mortgage by demise to ‘Thomas Overington of Kerford, taylor’ (SAS-H/647); little other evidence of the Kirdford Overingtons appears to have survived.

Alongside baptisms and births, family deaths are also recorded, spanning the death of Richard Overington’s wife (the mother of the elder Thomas Overington) in September 1638 to the death of the younger Thomas Overington, deceased October 1671 at around fifty years old.
