Adams/Vaus marriage
« on: Friday 01 May 20 21:06 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to find the marriage of Sarah ADAMS to John VAUS possibly at Cliffe, Lewes between 1670 and 1681.

Can anyone help, please?

Many thanks for looking.

I have Sarah's baptisms as 12 Jan 1654 at St. Thomas-in-the-Cliffs, Lewes, Sussex.

At some stage the VAUS family became Quakers.

Having failed to find a marriage in the usual places, can anyone tell me where any surviving Quaker records for Lewes might be held?

Hi bearkat,

The Sussex MI apparently includes Quaker marriages in Sussex.

I don't know if you have this information (in which case apologies for duplicating) but I did find a couple of interesting catalogue entries at The Keep:

https://www.thekeep.info/collections/getrecord/GB179_AMS5569_5_58

https://www.thekeep.info/collections/getrecord/GB179_AMS6517#

This is the catalogue entry for Richard's will:

https://www.thekeep.info/collections/getrecord/GB179_PBT_2_2_7_30

and his will can be seen here:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-6GR3-HZ5?i=86&cat=173636

I've not read it yet, but it might be valuable to look at.

Nell

Thank you Nell

I didn't realise that the Sussex Marriage Index included Quaker marriages.

I had seen the references to Richard Adams held at The Keep.  I thought I'd have to wait until after lockdown to obtain a copy of his will.

Off to try and transcribe the will.......

Sorry, I can't help with the marriage.

Have you thought that the "Vaus" spelling is interchangeable with "Vaux"?   "Vaux" is a placename in Normandy, France.  Additionally, looking on the Genuki, Lewes webpage, it does mention links with William the conqueror.

The Vaus name has many variations/transcription errors - Vause, Vaux, Vaws, Vans etc.

A Vaus did come over with William the Conquerer but I've got a few hundred to research yet!

At the moment I have them in London & Bermondsey which is where the Lewes wool trade met with the leather industry.

I've had a quick look at the will which isn't the easiest to read but I'm not sure it's a Quaker will.
