Henry MARCHANT (1689-1756)

and Mary HARLIN (1696-?)

 

Henry Marchant and Mary Harlin married on 8 November 1720 in Worth, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors)

Henry Marchant was baptised on 28 December 1689 in Cuckfield.  He was the eldest child and son of Thomas Marchant (1664-?) and Ann Jarrett.  He was buried on 19 September 1756 in Worth.

Mary Harlin was baptised on 23 January 1696 in Worth.  She was the daughter of Thomas Harlin and Kath.

 

Henry Marchant and Mary Harlin had 8 possible children:

  1. Mary Merchant was baptised on 5 March 1721 in Worth and buried there on 11 March 1721.

  2. Thomas Merchant was baptised on 21 July 1723 in Worth.

  3. John Merchant was baptised on 25 October 1724/5 in Worth.

  4. Mary Merchant was baptised on 25 November 1728 in Worth.

  5. Elizabeth Merchant was baptised on 16 July 1731 in Worth.

  6. Ben Merchant was baptised on 21 March 1735 in Worth.

  1. Henry Marchant was born about 1737 and baptised aged 18 years on 27 July 1755 in Ardingly.  The names of his parents were not recorded in the baptism register.  He may have married twice.  Firstly to Ann Woodman on 11 April 1762 in Worth and then to Susanna Anscomb on 7 April 1768 in Balcombe.  Henry may have been the father of the James Marchant who married Ann Knowles in 1796 in East Grinstead.

  2. Edmond Marchant was born about 1740 and baptised aged 15 years on 6 July 1755 in Ardingly.  The names of his parents were not recorded in the baptism register.  He married Diana Simmonds on 12 October 1764 in Cuckfield.

 

Henry and Edmond may have lived with their Uncle Edward Marchant (1696-1761) and Aunt Sarah Simmonds (1700-1774), who had children baptised in Ardingly from 1728 until 1740.  Might Edmond's wife Diana have been a niece of his Aunt Sarah?
