John Smart

     John Smart and Lucy Young obtained a marriage licence on 20 June 1795 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England.1
John Smart married Lucy Young, daughter of Samuel Young and Mary Sutton, on 21 June 1795 at Eastbourne, Sussex, England, John of Brighton; Lucy of this parish.1
There is some useful information on the marriage licence issued one day before the actual marriage: John Smart is a bachelor in the Royal Regiment Artillery, age 24 encamped at Brighton. Lucy is age 20 marrying with the consent of her mother, Mary Young, widow of Eastbourne.
Information from Marion Woolgar: "Roy Grant published a book on the Brighton Garrison some years ago and when replying to queries on the My Brighton & Hove web site in 2015 he wrote "the Barracks were built in 1793 and the first regiment to occupy the original buildings were The Royal Horse Artillery (1793-1795) they were followed (1794) by a detachment from The Royal Regiment of Artificers." I wonder if John SMART might have been of the Artificers and not the Artillery? I believe that the Artificers later became part of the Royal Engineers." This needs to be followed up.
Also, there is an article in The Oxford Times, 10 November 2010, about the execution of two soldiers on 13 June 1795 at Goldstone Bottom, Hove (near Brighton) with thousands of soldiers and militia men forced to witness as an example. John Smart would surely have witnessed this. (http://www.oxfordtimes.co.uk/lifestyle/history/8628554.Mutiny_over_grain_leads_to_executions/.)
Lucy's first child, Mary Ann, was born in 1795 just one month after her marriage to John Smart. Lucy then had four children between 1800-1806 at Tarring Neville in East Sussex to the same reputed father, Thomas Woolgar. They eventually married in 1807. This suggests that John Smart may have died before 1800. Being a soldier, perhaps he went to war and never returned? Alternatively, he may have deserted Lucy after being posted somewhere. Perhaps it was the uncertainty as to whether he was alive that was the reason why Lucy and Thomas Woolgar didn't/couldn't marry until 1807. Lucy's removal order from Heighton to Eastbourne in 1806 states that she is a widow, and this order may have been what prompted them to marry.
Research on Lucy's grandfather, Samuel Young, shows that he was born at Denton, next to Heighton. Samuel was left an orphan in 1719 when his father John Young of Newhaven died, and he and his siblings were placed in the care of John Young's brother, Samuel Young of Beddingham, and his brother-in-law James Chambers who lived at Seaford. Both John Young and James Chambers were closely connected to the Denton/Heighton area. Family connections were therefore the likely reason for Lucy Smart's residence in Heighton.
