Henry BOTTING (c1727-1772)

and Sarah MILLHAM (c1731-?)

 

Henry Botting and Sarah Millham were married on 11 June 1752 in Shipley, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Henry Botting's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Henry left a will dated 5 July 1769 at which time he was a farmer of Perrylands in Shipley.  His will was proved on 5 November 1772.  In his will he mentioned his 5 daughters and appointed his brother John Botting, nephew Edward Botting of West Grinstead and friend Solomn Nye of Shipley as executors.

It has been suggested that Henry was the son of William Botting and Ann or Elizabeth Scrivens, but they would seem to have have married in 1708 and had their 5 known children baptised in Slaugham between 1711 and 1718.  There was a Henry Botting baptised on 1 December 1734 in Shipley, the son of William Botting and Jane Mills, but he was said to have married Elizabeth Chapman on 24 June 1756 in Shipley.  Or was he born in 1710, the son of William Botting and Sarah Jupp?

Sarah Millham's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was mentioned in her husband's will, but not by name.

 

Henry Botting and Sarah Millham had 5 known children:

  1. Sarah Botting was baptised on 14 February 1753/4 in Shipley.  She was mentioned in her father's will, by which she was left a legacy of 100.

    Sarah may have married James Blunden by banns on 7 April 1776, at which time he was of Storrington and she of Shipley.  The witnesses to the marriage were Thomas Blunden and James Fillary.  Or she may have married Philip Holland by banns on 25 April 1779, when they were both of Shipley.  The witnesses to that marriage were Henry Mares and James Fillary.  Both marriages took place in Shipley.

  2. Mary Botting was baptised on 30 May 1755 in Shipley.  She was mentioned in her father's will, by which she was left a legacy of 100.

    Mary may have married Richard Pollard by banns on 17 April 1777 in Shipley, at which time he was of Ashurst and she of Shipley.  The witnesses to the marriage were Richard Batchelor and Ann Botting.  (At one point I had considered her a candidate for my own direct ancestor Mary Botting who married Philip Alfrey in 1776.)

  3. Ann Botting was baptised on 5 February 1755 in Shipley.  She was mentioned in her father's will, by which she was left a legacy of 100.

    Ann may have married John Bowley by banns on 10 June 1779 in Shipley.  They were both then of Shipley.  The witnesses to the marriage were Daniel Bacheller and Elizabeth Heasley

  4. Elizabeth Botting was baptised on 16 June 1760 in Shipley.  She was mentioned in her father's will, by which she was left a legacy of 100.

  5. Jenny Botting was baptised on 20 September 1763 in Shipley.  She married Thomas Grant in 1786.  (They have have their own page.)
