N.B. There is a tree on familysearch.org taking the Gravelys back to 1520 and other branches going back much further, one to the year 875!
I have not tried to verify any of this, since Jane Gander's birth has not been confirmed.

Jane Gander was born about 1778 (from her age on the 1841 census and when she died). She was living in Cowfold at the time of her marriage.
No record of her birth or baptism has been found but this family looks the most likely, given the connection with Cowfold, and William's daughter (above) may have been named after her. She married John Martin ***.
Henry Gander was baptised in Woodmancote 8 July 1781.
