Jeremias Reeve son of Jeremia and Judithia Reeve was baptized 8 Jul 1626 at Gosfield.

From the section on Childerditch in A History of the County of Essex:
In 1672 the houses of John Palmer and Jeremy Reeve were licensed for Presbyterian worship; Thomas Gilson of Brentwood applied to preach at the latter. In 1691 the local congregation was raising about £20 a year to support a minister, Clarke, who also had private means. He was still active in 1700. The meeting seems to have ceased by 1715, but in 1724 an application was made to license John Ballard's house for dissenters' meetings. There were said to be two Presbyterian families in the parish in 1770, but only one in 1776."
