Sarah Breach

b. circa 1782, d. 7 January 1854
FatherJohn Breach b. 20 Jan 1754, d. 1830
MotherAnn Gorringe b. c 1750, d. 1831
     Sarah Breach was born circa 1782 at Hamsey, Sussex, England.1 She was the daughter of John Breach and Ann Gorringe.
Sarah Breach was baptized on 30 April 1786 at Hamsey, Sussex, England.2,1
Note that Sarah's age for the 1851 census was 69 years (i.e. born c1782) and on her death certificate in 1854 her age is given as 72 years (i.e. born c1782).
Sarah Breach married Joseph Morris, son of Joseph Morris and Hannah Turner, on 8 September 1801 at Little Horsted, Sussex, England.3
Joseph Morris is recorded on the tithe survey of 31 Mar 1841 as living in Framfield on plot 1482 which contained four houses and gardens. The owner was John HOLMAN and the occupiers were Joseph MORRIS, [blank] REEVES, [blank] TURNER, William STEVENS and Richard THOMAS. The location of plot 1482 is shown on these maps.4
Note that a John HOLMAN witnessed the marriage of Sarah Breach's parents in 1782 at Hamsey.
On 7 June 1841 Sarah Breach and Joseph Morris lived at Bird Nye, Framfield, Sussex, England.5
On 30 March 1851 Sarah Breach and Joseph Morris lived at 34 Bird-in-eye, Framfield, Sussex, England, living with son Nelson who is noted as deaf in the later 1861 census. She gives her age as 69 years born Hamsey. Living close by at 38 Bird in Eye was their son William and family.1
Sarah Breach was a pauper (formerly agricultural labourer) on 30 March 1851.1
Sarah Breach died on 7 January 1854 at Framfield, Sussex, England. Her age is stated as 72 years and she died of cerebral disease.6
Sarah Breach was buried on 13 January 1854 at Framfield, Sussex, England, age given as 72 years.7
Discussion:
There are two Sarah Breachs - one who married Joseph Morris in 1801 (born c1782) and another who married John Skinner in 1818 (born c1791). Both say in the 1851 census that they were born in Hamsey - one c1782 and one c1791 (*** see details later in this note on how Sarah Skinner was located in the 1851 census).
In the SFHG baptisms index we find:
1. Only one Sarah Breach baptism at Hamsey (30 Apr 1786).
2. There is a Sarah Breach baptised on 7 Aug 1791 at Little Horsted to Thomas and Sarah Breach. The close proximity of Hamsey to Little Horsted means that this Sarah could very likely be born at Hamsey. A person having a place of birth at Hamsey but a baptism at Little Horsted is not unreasonable.
Given our Sarah Breach who married Joseph Morris had the earlier birth (c1782 vs 1791) and the earlier marriage (1801 vs 1818) I think we can be justified in selecting the 1786 baptism at Hamsey for her. The Sarah Breech who married John Skinner in 1818 is therefore the one baptised at Little Horsted in 1791.
One concern which should be noted is the diecrepency between Sarah's baptism (1786) and her age in the 1851 census and on her death certificate which gives her birth c1782. It is possible that she was not baptised due to religious nonconformity and if so we may have a third Sarah Breach at Hamsey that has not been identified, in which case the 1786 baptism is the wrong Sarah Breach.
*** Locating Sarah Breach (who married John Skinner in 1818) in the 1851 census:
John Skinner appears to have died between 1825 and 1830 as Sarah married again: Sarah Skinner (widow) to Edward Tippen, 13 Dec 1830 Lewes St John Southover. His burial has not been found although there are possibilities in the SFHG Burials Index.
Then there is the marriage of Sarah Tippen (widow) to Stephen Taylor (widower) on 24 Jan 1836 at Lewes St John Southover. They are in the 1851 census and Sarah's birthplace is Hamsey, c1791. She is living with daughter Winifred Skinner, which would validate this chain of marriages. Winifred Skinner was baptised 27 Apr 1820 (born 27 Dec 1819) father John Skinner (mother not named). Abode: Southover.

b. 15 May 1733

     Sarah Breach was baptized on 15 May 1733 at St Bartholomew, Burwash, Sussex, England. She was the daughter of John Breach and Sarah Skinner.
In 1738 a Removal Order was issued to John Breach's three children (one of which was Sarah) 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. The children were later apprenticed out by the overseers at Lewes St Michael.
Sarah Breach: 6 Feb 1741 Sarah Breach (9 years of age) apprenticed to John Edwards of Cuckfield, husbandman for 12 years.1
Note that there is a burial of a Sarah Breech on 30 Nov 1783 at St Mary Magdalene, Bermondsey in Surrey (Southwark).2
