John NEWMAN (1717-?)

and Mary STREATER (1719-1784)

 

John Newman and Mary Streater married on 27 October 1747 in Shipley, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  John may have been the brother of my 5x Great Grandmother, Ann Newman.)

John Newman may have been baptised on 14 March 1716/7 and then on 1 November 1717 in Shipley, the son of Thomas Newman (1668-1744) and Ann Davis (1684-1760).  But he did have a cousin named John Newman.  He was mentioned in his father's will.  He may have been buried on 24 January 1763 in Shipley, at which time the burial register recorded that he was a wheelwright, or on 21 March 1766 also in Shipley.

Mary Streeter was baptised on 3 February 1718/9 in Shipley.  She was the daughter of of Roger Streeter (1687-1759) and Clement (?-1759).  She most probably died a widow and was buried on 23 March 1784 in Shipley.

 

John Newman and Mary Streeter had 5 known children:

  1. James Newman Streater was baptised on 17 August 1746 in Shipley.  The baptism register only recorded his mothers name and that he was baseborn.

  2. Mary Newman was baptised on 31 July 1748 in Shipley.  She died aged 88 years in Horsham and was buried on 23 October 1836 in Shipley.

    Richard was baptised on 2 January 1736/7 in Shipley and was the son of Nicholas Laker (?-1782) and Sarah Kensett (?-1778).  He died aged 80 years and was buried on 20 January 1818 in Shipley.  A transcript of the wording on Richard and Mary's headstone notes that he died on 16 January 1867 (this must be wrong) and she on 12 October 1836.

      Jane died aged 69 years and was buried on 10 September 1848 in Cowfold, therefore, born she was about 1779.
