John Breach

b. circa 1720
     John Breach was born circa 1720 at Sussex, England.
At this stage it is difficult to decide whether this John Breach married Elizabeth Petit in 1745 or Mary Sarjeant in 1748. I am favouring Mary Sargeant for two reasons:
1. John and Mary named one of their sons Benjamin which was a name used by the parents John Breach and Mary Moor.
2. John's brother William married an Elizabeth Sargeant, probably a sister of Mary Sargeant.
