William Breach

b. circa 1747, d. 1834
Last Edited: 26 Jan 2018
  • Baptism*: William Breach was baptized circa 1747 at Sussex, England, according to age at burial (87 years in 1834.)
  • Anecdote*: William's age at death gives his birth as c1747, an exact match to William baptised 1747 at Eastbourne to John Breach and Elizabeth Petit of Eastbourne. However, there is another candidate in William Breach bap. 1753 at Eastbourne, son of John Breach and Mary Sarjeant, which is a real possibility for the following reasons:
    1. This William had a brother Benjamin who also came to settle in Hamsey.
    2. William of Hamsey named is first daughter Mary (not Elizabeth!).
    N.B. Both of these William's named their first son John (same as the father). Until further information becomes available I feel that it is impossible to favour one over the other especially as ages on burial records can be inaccurate. Families of John Breach and Elizabeth Petit and John Breach and Mary Sarjeant are in this database but just not connected to this William Breach. If interested, you can find them in the surname index. (GGB.)
  • Marriage Bann: Marriage banns for William Breach and Jane Corner were published on 21 April 1776 at Hamsey, Sussex, England; both of this parish.1
  • Marriage*: William Breach married Jane Corner, daughter of John Corner and Jane Ade, on 14 May 1776 at Hamsey, Sussex, England, both of this parish.2
  • Death*: William Breach died in 1834 at Hamsey, Sussex, England.
  • Burial*: William Breach was buried on 4 October 1834 at St Peter, Hamsey, Sussex, England, "87 years old" (confirmed by sighting original register.)3
