Although many websites give the parentage of Wolston Childe, husband of Ellen, I see no real proof of the assertions they make. Wolston and Ellen were the parents of Ephraim Childe, who came to New England, and the grandparents of two other American immigrants.
There is a 1601 marriage of Nicholas Louthe to Alice Childe at St. Helen, Bishopsgate.
Two years later, Nicholas Lowthe's 1603 will leaves to the "[c]hildren of sister Child, viz., Nathaniel, Benjamin, Ephraim, Joshua, and Elizabeth."
Nicholas' will mentions his brother Edmond Lowth. The will of this same Edmond "Loweth" occurs in the same set of Surrey archdioconal wills (Herringman register).
Notice that Edmond mentions "sister-in-law Alice Loweth."
I guess this means that Wolston Childe at least had a sister named Alice Childe (married Nicholas Louthe/ Lowthe).
