Henry MOORE (1805-1834)

and Mary Ann SMITH (c1809-1833)

 

Henry Moore and Mary Ann Smith married by banns on 24 June 1827 in Cowfold, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Cowfold.  The witnesses to their marriage were Henry Standing and Henry Hill.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Henry Moore was baptised on 12 May 1805 in Cowfold, Sussex.  He was the son of Thomas Moore (1779-1856) and Phoebe Thomsett (c1777-1863).  On 1 January 1828, Henry was a witness to the marriage of Henry Standen and Harriet Smith.  Might he have died aged 29 years and have been buried on 28 December 1834 at St. John sub Castro in Lewes, Sussex?  (I have not found him in the 1841 census and all his children were scattered.)

Mary Ann Smith was born about 1809.  She died aged 24 years and was buried on 6 October 1833 in Cowfold.  Might she have been baptised on 2 July 1809 in Horsham, Sussex and have been the daughter of Abigail Smith?

 

Henry Moore and Mary Ann Smith had 4 known children:

  1. Dorinda Moore was baptised on 14 October 1827 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted her father was a labourer.  She married Isaac Dean in 1846.  (They have their own page.)

  2. Louisa Moore was baptised on 2 April 1829 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted her father was a labourer.  When the 1841 census was recorded she was 11 years old and living in the workhouse in Hurstpierpoint.

  3. Susan Moore was baptised on 18 September 1831 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted her father was a labourer.  She was 9 years old in 1841 and living in the Hurstpierpoint workhouse.  In 1851 she was a 19 year old house servant and living in the home of John Brown at 2 Hove Terrace in Hove, Sussex.

  4. Jeremiah Moore was baptised on 12 August and 10 November 1833 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted his father was a labourer.  When the 1841 census was recorded he was most probably 7 years old and living with his paternal grandparents.  In 1851 he was a 17 year old agricultural labourer and lodging in the home of 59 year old John Moore at Dudneys Cottage, Horsham Road, Cowfold.  When the 1891 census was recorded he was an unmarried 57 year old farm labourer and lodging in the home of Emily Roberts in Station Road, West Grinstead.

 

Abigail Smith married Charles Chelten by banns on 4 December 1811 in Horsham.  He was a bachelor and private in the 36th regiment and she was a spinster.
