Elizabeth Breedon  [Zacheus Breedon / Margery Burges]

A lot of information about Stephen's life is available both in wills and in other documents. In 1643 the journal of the House of Lords refers to the sequestration of lands from Sir Thomas Dawes and family. Two of the gentlemen empowered to undertake this are Stephen Sedgwick and Robert Haughton. In 1647 an ordinance was read in the House of Lords and agreed making Stephen the Minister of Tingewick in Buckinghamshire. In 1653 and 1657 he is still at Tingewick where he is described as an intruding minister - in 1653 he approved the appointment of a parish registrar and is described as Minister. In 1661 he is described as 'gentleman of Richmond, Surrey' when his son Zacheus is apprenticed.

In addition to these references, it is probable that Stephen is also the individual described as 'clerk of Brightwalton' and 'of Ipswich, Suffolk' in apprenticeship records of Francis and Stephen Sedgwick. He could also be the Stephen Sedgwick buried at Freston, Suffolk in 1672.
