John BECK (1725-?)

and Ann HYLAND (1724-1779)

 

John Beck and Ann Hyland were my 6x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  I believe they married on 14 January 1753/4 at St. Mary the Virgin in Ringmer, Sussex.  However, his name was recorded as John Boxall in the marriage register.  I have not found Boxall children baptised to a John and Ann.  I admit I need to try and find more evidence to prove that this is the correct marriage.

John Beck was baptised on 18 July 1725 in Newhaven, Sussex.  He was the son of Daniel Back (1696-?) and Mary Reeve (1699-1736).  John died after 1776.  (A John Back was buried on 16 August 1802 in Ringmer.)

Ann Hyland was baptised on 10 October 1724 in Ringmer, Sussex.  She was the daughter of George Hyland (c1684-?) and Elizabeth Stanley (1686-1752).  Ann was probably buried on 31 May 1779 in Kingston near Lewes, Sussex.  The burial register records her name as Anne Bech.  Or she may have been buried on 23 February 1804 in Brighton, Sussex.  Before her marriage she had 2 daughters:

  1. Ann Highland was baptised on 26 May 1753 in Ringmer.  She may have been buried there on on 6 March 1755.

  2. Elizabeth Highland was baptised on 26 May 1753 in Ringmer.  She may have been the infant Elizabeth Highland who was buried on 1 August 1753 in Ringmer (most likely).  Or as Elizabeth Highlands she may have married Edward Medhurst on 15 July 1770 in Ringmer (less likely).  She did have a cousin Elizabeth Hyland born in 1752.

 

John Beck and Ann Hyland had 5 known children:

  1. Sarah Hiland Beck was baptised on 13 October 1754 at the parish church of St. Pancras in Kingston near Lewes.  She was most probably buried on 10 December 1820 in Kingston, however, a transcript of the burial register notes she was 86 years old, but, she would only have been 66 years.

    Sarah married Samuel Mockford by banns on 21 March 1773 in Kingston.  They were both then of Iford, Sussex.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Beck and Richard Geering.

    Samuel was baptised on 20 November 1752 at St. Anne's in Lewes, Sussex and was the son of Peter Mockford (1721-1793) and Susanna Stephens.  He died aged 88 years and was buried on 23 December 1839 in Kingston.  On 22 January 1786 in Kingston, Samuel was a witness to the marriage of Thomas Mockford of Southover and Mary Bartholomew of Iford.  He acted again as witness to the marriage of Thomas Martin from Hove and Jane Smith of Iford on 21 July 1794 in Kingston.
