John Terry

b. circa 1741, d. 1809
     John Terry was born circa 1741 at Sussex, England.
A possible baptism for John Terry is 12.4.1741 at Street, Sussex to parents John and Charity Terry. There are no Terry's listed in the Newhaven parish registers prior to John and Sarah's marriage in 1765 (checked back to 1720).
The details for John Terry's possible baptism and parents (John & Charity Terry) came from Frank Clark (contacted via Sussex Family History Group's Directory of Member's Interests, listed under TERRY). Frank supplied the following list of John and Charity Terry's children baptised in Streat:
12.4.1741 John
3.7.1742 Sarah
6.3.1747/48 Charles
1750 Charity
1.12.1752 Elizabeth
(All confirmed in the Sussex Baptisms Index - GGB.)
John Terry married Sarah Hollands, daughter of Francis Hollands and Anne Ticehurst, on 11 October 1765 at Newhaven, Sussex, England, by banns, both of this parish.1
A John Terry was a juror on a coronial inquest in Newhaven on 13 May 1769. Also on the jury was a Thomas Hollands, possibly the brother or father of John's wife, Sarah (nee Hollands).2
The parish register indicates that a tax was levied for baptisms after about 1.10.1783. However, John and Sarah were classified as paupers on all baptisms after this date and so did not have to pay.
John Terry died in 1809 at Newhaven, Sussex, England.
John Terry was buried on 25 August 1809 at St Michael, Newhaven, Sussex, England.3

Sarah Hollands was baptized on 14 October 1744 at Bishopstone, Sussex, England.1 She was the daughter of Francis Hollands and Anne Ticehurst.
The only HOLLANDS' in Newhaven in the mid 1700's were Thomas and Elizabeth HOLLANDS who first appear in 1760 with the baptism of their son Thomas on 4.12.1760. There were no HOLLANDS previous to this (checked back to 1727). The only other entries for Thomas and Elizabeth in Newhaven were the baptism of daughter Mary on 31.5.1762 and her later burial on 15.1.1763. The Sussex Marriage Index has a marriage for Thomas HOLLANDS and Elizabeth BECKET, 22.5.1757, both of & at Newhaven. It is therefore possible that Thomas is the brother of Sarah HOLLANDS.
A Thomas Hollands was a juror on a coronial inquest in Newhaven on 13 May 1769. Also on the jury was a John Terry, possibly the brother in law of Thomas.2
Sarah Hollands married John Terry on 11 October 1765 at Newhaven, Sussex, England, by banns, both of this parish.3

In 1856 Isaac Burt lived at Coggers Cross, Hellingly, Sussex, England, owning a freehold house.7
Isaac Burt's will written in 1866 indicates that he has property "joining the road to Swans Brook". Coggers Cross is therefore likely to be the intersection of Coggers Lane (which becomes Swanbrook Lane) and the main road between Hellingly and Horam (now called North St - the A267). Google maps also calls this intersection Burlow, the place of residence of William Ashdown, the father of Isaac's wife Alice Ashdown, as mention in his will made in 1825 and proved in 1830.

     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
As of 8 September 1801, her married name was Morris.
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.

Benjamin Funnell

b. 30 December 1796, d. 1833
FatherRichard Funnell b. c 1765, d. 1848
MotherElizabeth Inkpen b. 12 Mar 1769, d. 1809
     Benjamin Funnell was born on 30 December 1796 at Chiddingly, Sussex, England.1 He was the son of Richard Funnell and Elizabeth Inkpen.
Benjamin Funnell was baptized on 5 February 1797 at Chiddingly, Sussex, England.1
Note that there is another Benjamin Funnell born at Chiddlingly 3 Aug 1800 (bap. 24 Sep 1800) son of Benjamin and Elizabeth who requires accounting for. In the 1841 census this Benjamin is living at The Dicker with his parents Benjamin and Ann (re-marriage 1812 at Ripe) as Benjamin jnr and wife Elizabeth, children: Henry 15, Elizabeth 12, Mary 10, Lucy 8, Phillis 3 and Noah 3m.
According to the baptism register, the son Henry was baptised 30 Apr 1826 at Chiddingly to Benjamin and Elizabeth. This was their first (at Chiddingly) suggesting this was the marriage of Benjamin Funnell and Elizabeth TURNER in 1826 (see below).
Possible marriages are:
1. 15 Jun 1822 Benjamin FUNNELL and Elizabeth AGATE at Ifield, both of this parish. First child Sarah baptised at Crawley 13 Apr 1823 (abode Ifield). Then Maria bap. 25 Jun 1826 at Slaugham and Henry bap. 23 Nov 1828 at Slaugham. In the 1841 census they are living at Shepherd's Field, Lower Beeding. Children Henry 12, Martha 9, Helen 6 and Mary 4. Benjamin was buried at Ifield on 6 Jul 1841, age 47 years, (of Beeding). The age 47 years puts his birth at c1794 which is a bit early for our Benjamin and he is probably the Benjamin Funnell baptised 1793 at Crawley - so this is discounted.
2. 25 Jan 1825 Benjamin FUNNELL and Elizabeth TURNER at Chiddingly, both of this parish. Benjamin was buried 19 Jan 1842 at Chiddingly age 41 years, supporting the theory that his was the later baptism at Chiddingly (plus see note above) - so this is discounted.
3. 29 Apr 1827 Benjamin FUNNELL and Jane HOAD at Brighton, both of this parish. Daughter Mary Ann baptised 23 Dec 1827 at Brighton. 1851 census has Benjamin born Warbleton - so this is discounted.
4. 23 Sep 1832 Benjamin FUNNELL and Harriet SIMMONS at Chalvington, Benjamin of Chiddingly, Harriet of this parish - this one is the most probable.2
Benjamin Funnell was a labourer in 1832.2
Benjamin Funnell married Harriet Simmons on 23 September 1832 at Chalvington, Sussex, England, Benjamin of Chiddingly; Harriet of this parish.2
Benjamin Funnell died in 1833 at Chalvington, Sussex, England.
Benjamin Funnell was buried on 26 February 1833 at Chiddingly, Sussex, England, "36 years, Abode: Chalvington."3,4
