Henry GROVES (1770-1845)

and Sarah BOTTEN (?-?)

 

Henry Groves and Sarah Botten married by banns on 3 April 1793 in Henfield, Sussex.  The witnesses were Edmund Peter and William Vinall.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Henry Groves was baptised on 17 April 1770 in Woodmancote, Sussex.  He was the son of Richard Groves (1742-1784) and Ann Lilliot (1739-1824).  He died aged 76 years and was buried on 29 October 1845 in Woodmancote.

Sarah Botten's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me - I've not looked for her yet.

 

Henry Groves and Sarah Botten had 7 known children:

    Philip married twice, firstly to Martha Phillipps by banns on 4 November 1815 in Albourne, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Albourne.
