Jesse Ashdown

b. circa 1816
FatherJesse Ashdown b. 13 May 1785, d. 1874
MotherMary Smith b. c 1797
     Jesse Ashdown was born circa 1816 at Chiddingly, Sussex, England.1 He was the son of Jesse Ashdown and Mary Smith.
Note: I am note sure that the correct parents have been identified for this Jesse Ashdown, but it has been left here until further information is found. His birth year in the census returns is consistently c1814 which is about 2 years before Jesse Ashdown and Mary Smith married in 1816. Also, a baptism has not been found so the link is speculative. No other baptisms have been found for Jesse and Mary Ashdown at his time either.
Jesse Ashdown married Louisa Butler on 2 September 1835 at St Michael, Lewes, Sussex, England.2
Jesse Ashdown was a labourer, abode Chiddingly on 21 February 1836.3
On 7 June 1841 Jesse Ashdown and Louisa Butler lived at Horeham Road, Hellingly, Sussex, England.4
Jesse Ashdown was a farmer of 41 acres employing 1 boy on 30 March 1851.1
On 30 March 1851 Jesse Ashdown and Louisa Butler lived at Hellingly, Sussex, England, living next to Isaac and Alice Burt (Alice is nee Ashdown.)1

OBITUARY: Davis County Clipper, 3 October 1902
Richard Ashdown, sen. died of old age at his home in East Bountiful, Saturday, Sept. 27th, at 4 p.m., at the ripe old age of 88 years, 9 months and 25 days. Deceased was born at Uckfield, Essuck [sic] Co, England. Dec 2, 1813.
He became acquainted with the elders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the fifties and was ready for baptism upon first hearing the gospel and immediately became an active member in spreading the gospel. He presided over the branch where he lived until 1861, when he emigrated to Utah and settled in Salt Lake City; later he moved to Bountiful where he remained until his death. In the year 1870, during the new move of the Godbyites, he became desirous of finding out something about them and, being deaf, he became a subscriber to the Tribune as that paper advocated their doctrine and the same year he was excommunicated from the church for refusing to give up the paper but he never became identified with the Godbyites.
Funeral services were held in the East ward tabernacle, Tuesday, Sept. 30th at 10 a.m. Consoling remarks were made by James Burningham, Alfred Burningham, C.R. Jones, John Fisher, Judson Tolman, E.L. Hook. All testified to his good character. His testimony to the last was that the gospel is true and that through this church is the only gateway into the kingdom of God.1
