     John Breach was baptized on 20 January 1754 at Ditchling St Margaret, Ditchling, Sussex, England, name recorded as Jno Breech.1 He was the son of John Breach and Ann Hildrop.
John Breach was a husbandman on 21 October 1782.2
John Breach and Ann Gorringe obtained a marriage licence on 21 October 1782 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England, Ann is "of Hamsey" and 21+ years; John is "of the same parish" 21+ years.2
John Breach married Ann Gorringe on 22 October 1782 at Hamsey, Sussex, England, botp (Lic.) Witnesses: John Holman and William Marten (parish clerk?)2,3
Notes:
Note 1: A witness to the marriage was John Holman. Interesting to note that a John Holman owned the property that Sarah Breach and Joseph Morris occupied at Bird in Eye in 1842 for the tithe map survey.
Note 2: I have recently found the banns of a John Breach (of Hamsey) and Ann Bates (of St John Lewes) occurred at Hamsey on 12 Mar 1780. The actual marriage has not been found so it must be assumed that it didn't go ahead. However, it must be noted in case further information becomes available.2
A John BREACH, labourer, is listed in the 1803 Militia List for Little Horsted.
John Breach died in 1830 at Little Horsted, Sussex, England.
John Breach was buried on 5 March 1830 at St Michael & All Angels, Little Horsted, Sussex, England, age 75 years.4
Discussion 1
The following baptisms were considered for our John Breach:
1. John Breach baptised 2 Dec 1750 at Eastbourne St Mary son of John Breach and Eliz.
2. John Breach baptised 1 Feb 1750/51 at Eastbourne St Mary son of John Breach and Mary Sergeant (priv. baptism 19 Dec 1750).
3. Jno (John) Breech on 20 Jan 1754 at Ditchling St Margaret, son of Jno (John) Breech and Ann. A brother Joseph baptised there as well in 1755.
4. John Breach on 18 Aug 1758 at Eastbourne St Mary to Thomas Breach and Mary Denman. This is not the Thomas Breach and Mary Pritchard who married at Hamsey in 1728 but the Thomas Breach and Mary Denman who married at Bexhill on 9 Jun 1756 (te entry in the Sussex Marriage Index contains the comment that Thomas is of Eastbourne).
5. John Breach baptised 10 Dec 1760 at Litlington (near Alfriston) son of Ann Breach.
The conclusion is that our John Breach is the one baptised 20 Jan 1754 at Ditchling because:
1. Our John Breach was living at Hamsey where there was also a Joseph Breach (his brother), both having children baptised there and also,
2. John's burial in 1830 gives his age as 75 years, giving a birth date c1755 which most closely matched to the Ditchling baptism. There are no Joseph Breachs in the SFHG baptism index before 1755 strongly suggesting that the Joseph Breach at Hamsey was the one baptised at Ditchling in 1755. It would be reasonable to assume that the John Breach at Hamsey was his brother also baptised at Ditchling in 1754.
The 1750/51 baptism at Eastbourne was of interest as it would make John Breach a brother of Benjamin Breach who was living at Hamsey with John and Joseph Breach. However, there is a possible marriage of this John Breach to Elizabeth Cogger Eldridge in 1772 at Battle and subsequent children born at Hastings. One of the children is named Mark (not a common name) which would be consistent with this John Breach being the son of John Breach and Mary Sargeant as Mary's father's name was Mark.4,2
Discussion 2
There were four families having children baptised at Hamsey between 1777 and 1796:
William Breach and Jane Corner (m. 14 May 1776 at Hamsey, botp). William is considered to have been born 1747 at Eastbourne. His age at burial supports this.
John Breach and Ann Gorringe (m. 22 Oct 1782 at Hamsey, botp). John is considered to have been born at Ditchling in 1754.
Joseph Breach and Sarah Wright (m. 19 Apr 1784 at Hamsey, Joseph of Ovingdean, Sarah otp). Joseph is considered to have been born at Ditchling 1755, brother to John above.
Benjamin Breach and Joanna Baldy (m. 27 Aug 1787 at Hamsey, botp). (Benjamin bap. 22 Sep 1752 son of John Breach & Mary Sarjeant at Eastbourne St Mary?? only Benjamin in SFHG baptism index)
Prior to 1777 there was only one Breach family at Hamsey: Thomas Breach and Mary (nee Pritchard) married 1728. However, there are only three children baptised there for them: Ann (1730), Mary (1733) and Elizabeth (1738) and it appears that none of the four above are particularly closely related to him.1

John Breach

b. 4 July 1729
FatherJohn Breach b. 2 Apr 1698
MotherSarah Skinner b. 24 Nov 1695, d. 1735
     John Breach was baptized on 4 July 1729 at Burwash, Sussex, England. He was the son of John Breach and Sarah Skinner.
In 1738 a Removal Order was issued to John Breach's three children (one of which was John) to relocate to Lewes and a letter from the overseers of Burwash stated that John had left his family. We can probably infer from this that John had gone to Lewes and became entitled to to settlement there (maybe through employment?). The children were then sent to Lewes.1
The children were later apprenticed out by the overseers at Lewes St Michael.
John Breach: 22 Aug 1741 John Breach (12 years) apprenticed to John Hemsley of East Chiltington in Westmeston, yeoman, for 12 years.2
This looks almost certainly to be our John as the age is right and the location at East Chiltington is midway between Hamsey and Ditchling. It explains how John got to be at Ditchling in 1754.
John Breach was a tailor (documented on the marriage register) in 1753.3
John Breach married Ann Hildrop on 24 April 1753 at Fleet Prison, London, Sussex, England, John BRICH of Westmeston; Ann HILDROP of Ditchling.3
Note that John's brother Thomas Breach also had a Fleet Prison marriage in 1750, suggesting they may have kept in contact with each other.
John and Ann had two children baptised at Ditchling and at some stage the family must have moved to Hamsey. No other children to John and Ann have been found to date.
