William Longhurst's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to
me. Although he had 3 children baptised in Horsham, his baptism was
not recorded in the Horsham parish registers, nor was his burial.
William was a weaver. Might he have been baptised on 27 February
1671/2 in Ewhurst, Surrey and have been the son of Joseph Longhurst
and Margaret Sture? They married there on 20 September 1670.
Ewhurst is on the Surrey/Sussex border and near to Charlwood, which is also
on the border. However, the IGI records that that William was buried
on 2 January 1694. I believe his daughter Ann married and settled in
Billinghurst, Sussex, but William was not baptised or buried there either.

Sarah Young's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

Sarah Young had 3 or 4 known children:

Sarah Longhurst was baptised on 28 January 1699/1700 in Horsham.
The baptism register recorded that her parents were William and Sarah.
may have been my 6x Great Grandmother. She was baptised on 7 March
1700/1 in Horsham, Sussex and married
Jeremiah Oulder in 1727. (They have their own page.)
The baptism register recorded that her parents were William and Sarah and
that her father was a weaver.

baptism register records that he was the son of William and Ann and that his
father was a weaver.
