Looking for a marriage between Richard Jones of Chertsey,Surrey and Sarah , unknown maiden name . All of their children were christened in Chertsey.

Richard christened 1794
Mary christened 1797
Elizabeth christened 1799 .

I‘m looking for the ancestors of Richard Jones’ wife Sarah.


regards

Moses

Family trees online have Richard Jones marrying Sarah Brookes-she was a Widow and five years older than him. Marriage 5/8/1789 St Giles Camberwell Richard born 1766 Sarah 1761. Sarah's Father James Brookes- Mother Prudence. Hope this helps, but will need checking out well of course.
regards.

The marriage of 1st August 1789 was by license, Richard Jones Esquire, to Sarah Brookes widow.
Witnesses are Anne Jones and William Strange.
ref: ancestry
Could your Richard Jones be refered to as Esquire?
I'll look for the license to see if it has more information

1841 census Richard is 75 and Sarah 80.
Death records 1841 Sarah age 75 and 1847 Richard aged 85.

Possibly some forgetfulness due to age Sarah' age at death 75 is actually Richards in 1841 and Richard in 1847 should be 81 not 85.

The parents of Richard are likely Thomas Jones and Sarah, he was baptized 20 July 1766 at St Peter Chertsey.

He was of independent means on the 1841  :-\  Also Sarah was not born in County (Surrey- Chertsey)
