Sarah Heat and Joseph Turner
« on: Saturday 13 January 18 00:23 GMT (UK) »
I am hoping someone can help me identify a possibly christening for my ancestor Sarah Heat.

My ancestor Joseph Turner married Sarah Heat on 20 January 1796 in Hartfield, Sussex. This was his second marriage and took place by Licence.

What is puzzling me is the fact that her name appears sometimes to be transcribed as Heat [which is what I have it as] and in other cases it is recorded as Heath!

So far I have only found two possible candidates for Sarah's christening, both in the neighbouring parish of Withyham and within 3 years of each other:

Sarah Heat - christened 4 May 1773 Withyham - daughter of Henry and Ann Heat

Sarah Heath - christened 25 December 1776 Withyham - daughter of Thomas and Ann Heath

Frustratingly I can't find a burial for either of these two, which is making is hard to know which one was married to Joseph Turner.

I have just been able to look at the original PR entry on Familysearch tonight and her name does look like HEAT rather than HEATH, which leads me to suspect that my Sarah is the daughter of Henry and Ann.

Thomas and Henry might be brothers but so far I haven't found anything beyond the christenings of their children.

If anyone can confirm my suspicion that my Sarah was the daughter of Henry and Ann, or can add any other useful info, I would be very grateful.

Many thanks in advance.

Matt

Thanks Claire

I had looked for a possible burial for either Sarah but not been able to find any. Makes the choice a bit easier now.

Thanks to both claire and solidrock for their help with this puzzle.

My Sarah now certainly looks to be the daughter of Henry and Ann HEAT. Sarah daughter of Thomas and Ann HEATH died in 1777.

I know Henry and Ann had another child, Samuel, christened in March 1771. However I've not found any other children for them, or a marriage.

Also does anyone think Thomas HEATH and Henry HEAT could be brothers? Heath could quickly be misread or misheard as Heat.

Anyhow thanks again and any other info on Henry and Ann HEAT would be welcomed.

Hi Matt

I can't see a marriage for a Henry Heat either, but there is this one in Withyham worth considering maybe Henry's father or a relation

Henry HAIT married Ann Ovenden 19 October 1752

BURIALS

Anne HEATH widow buried 25 June 1810 Withyham

Henry HEATH buried 6 June 1778 Withyham aged 62

Hi

I have found a baptism close to Withyham, which could possibly be Henry. It took place in Cowden, Kent which is five miles from Withyham

Henry Heat baptised 15 April 1753 at Cowden, son of Henry and Ann.

A sibling Mary is baptised too in Cowden on 2 March 1755
And a Hannah baptised 18 April 1762, also in Cowden.
************************************************************

Back in Withyham there is this

Lucy baptised 16 Oct 1774 mother Mary Heat.
On the 27 Oct 1792 a 'male' child was baptised son of Sarah Heath.

Hi Claire

Thanks for those bits of info. I think you are right to say that Henry Heat was the son of Henry Heat [Hait] and Ann Ovenden who married in 1752.

The Cowden link is interesting as the Turners had links there as well.

The question now is where were Henry Heat (born 1752) and his wife (Ann) married? I know that before Sarah Heat (born 1773) they had a son named Samuel christened in Withyham in 1771.

Anyhow thanks again, this gives me something to look into.

Matt
