Jean Wood

b. circa 1755, d. 1798
     Jean Wood was born circa 1755 at Sussex, England.
Jean Wood was also known as Jenny.
Jean Wood married Thomas Woolgar, son of George Woolgar and Mary Allwork, on 9 April 1779 at Willingdon, Sussex, England, Thomas is of Bishopstone, Jean of this parish (Willingdon.)1,2
Jean Wood died in 1798 at South Heighton, Sussex, England.
Jean Wood was buried on 7 January 1798 at Tarring Neville, Sussex, England, "wife of Thomas of South Heighton."1
Much of the information about the Woolgar's has come from Marion Woolgar's one-name study of this surname.3
Marion Woolgar writes: Again, according to my notebook entry Thomas WOOLGAR wasn’t buried at South Heighton. Also, according to my notebook entries for Bishopstone, neither he nor his first wife, Jenny, were buried at Bishopstone. However, in Sussex Archaeological Collections volume XIX published in 1867, page 186 et seq, there is a list of Memorial Inscriptions that were recorded at Bishopstone and amongst them is the following item:
“Jenny WOOLGAR died 1st Janry, 1798, aged 37;
Thomas WOOLGAR died 4th Octr, 1819, aged 67.”
I well remember visiting Bishopstone about 15 years ago and I carried out a hunt for any remnant of this headstone, but found nothing that I could positively identify.
Just to confuse matters even further, there IS a burial entry on 07 Jan 1798 for Jenny WOOLGAR, wife of Thomas of South Heighton listed in the Tarring Neville Burial Register. This is more understandable because South Heighton church was destroyed by lightning in the mid-18th Century and its parish was joined with Tarring Neville. Although some South Heighton parishioners subsequently used Denton church, most South Heighton baptisms and marriages took place at Tarring Neville church, but Bishopstone was used for burials of South Heighton residents, as the former was an old ‘minster’ church. Now, when I last examined the Tarring Neville Burial Registers back in 1993, they had only been deposited up to 1812, so it is entirely possible that more WOOLGAR burials post -1812 are still waiting to be found. Sorry that’s so complicated!
This obviously needs further research (GGB).
