Hi
Not sure what you have .It seems from the latter censuses that Charles was born in 1814 and Jesse in 1811.
A baptism to Richard and Mary Weeks 30.11.1788 fits nicely. for John Weeks
Marriage 31.1.1785/6 on familysearch Richard and Mary Woolley.
Other children for them Martha 5.11.1786,Amy 10.7.1791 and possibly Harriet 9.5.1806 and Sarah 25.12.1811.

Following Charles Weeks born 1814 Headcorn on the censuses in 1861 he is with brother Thomas at Chart next Sutton Valence.Thomas Weeks is born 1809 at Egerton,has a wife Esther nee Moon aged 40 and lots of children.He is a farmer of 150 acres.
Possible baptism 27.5.1806 Egerton .
Which would fit with a possible marriage for John and Ann there 28.4.1804 to Ann Evendon but that would make John only 16 when he married.
It would be helpful to have deaths and burials for John and Ann but they don't seem to be on-line.
John is deceased by 1846 on his son's Jesse's marriage.

Thank you Ciderdrinker for that information, I am thinking that John was a little young at 16 to be married but stranger things happen. I will carry on from there.

Hi,

As Thomas was born at Egerton and John and Ann were married there I wonder if either of these are John's baptism.

John WEEKS
Baptism Date:  24 Mar 1782
Baptism Place:  Egerton, Kent, England
Father:  James WEEKS   
Mother:  Mary 


John WEEKS
Baptism Date:  17 Mar 1782
Baptism Place:  Egerton, Kent, England
Father:  Lewis WEEKS   
Mother:  Sarah 


They would make him about 22 for the 1804 marriage to Ann EVENDON.


Unfortunately I can see two burials for John WEEKS in Egerton around this time, but no ages are given so it's hard to know who they were.

John WEEKS   12 Aug 1787  Egerton, Kent

John WEEKS   27 Aug 1788  Egerton, Kent

Regards,
Daisy
