James Compton and Sarah Burchatt/Burchett
« on: Wednesday 06 May 20 14:22 BST (UK) »
Is anyone able to check for a christenings for James Compton and Sarah Burchatt [or possibly Burchett] in Rudgwick or nearby.

James and Sarah were married in May 1710. They had five children born between 1709/10 and 1724. The youngest, William, was christened in September 1724.

It looks like James died in May 1744 and I think he was  born c1681

Sarah appears to have died in July 1764 and I think she was probably born c1678/79

It's also possible both James and Sarah were christened anytime between 1670 and 1690.

Can anyone shed any light on either of these two people?

Many thanks

Matt

I believe she was born in January 1678/79 but that's only an estimate.

Sarah married James Compton in May 1710. He was born in

Some Holy Trinity, Rudgwick, BMD's are on FreeREG;

Burials;
JAMES 28 May 1744 age 63 (c 1681)
SARAH 12 Jul 1764, Widow of. age 85 (c 1679)

So I would agree with your birth dates for them.

Bapts of children are there also; Sarah 1710/11, James 1713, Elizabeth 1722, William 1724

I did note a JOHN 12 Jul 1719, Father JONAS

So transcription error or was James also known as Jonas?

John would fit in nicely between those other children.

Also also noticed a JOHN Compton Bapt children Rudgwick 1707/1708/1711/1712/1715
He was possibly buried 06 May 1716

Also another Marriage same Church;
Anne BANSTED
Thomas COMPTON 30 Mar 1714

Its possible John/Thomas/James were Brothers.

All I have posted is on FreeREG and there is another Marriage Holy Trinity near to the time of James/Sarahs;
Elizabeth GREEN
John BURCHET 30 Apr 1707
Both of Shere, Surrey**

So there may be a Surrey connection for your Sarah also?

Hi Trish

Thanks for all your help here. I definitely think you've hit on something as a lot of my ancestors in Sussex had links to Surrey.

The christening dates you found for Sarah, James, Elizabeth and William all match what I have for them. It is James [christened 1713] who is my own ancestor. I was surprised that the name of John's father was down as "Jonas" rather than James but like you say perhaps that is a transcription error.

Anyhow you've given me something to work with so many thanks.

If you happen to find out anything else about Sarah Burchett or the Comptons it would be great to hear from you again.

Best Wishes
Matt
