and Sarah PHILPOTT (1746-1825)
Richard Newman and Sarah Philpott married
by banns on 2 November 1775 in Shipley, Sussex. The witnesses to their
marriage were Richard Flint and James Fillary. (They were not my direct ancestors.
Richard may have been the nephew of my 5x Great Grandmother, Ann
Newman.) Richard had intended to marry
Sarah Bristow in 1769. The
banns were published in Billingshurst in December 1769, but his mother
forbid the marriage because he was not of age.
Richard Newman was baptised on 31 August 1750 in Shipley. He
was the son of John
Newman (1717-?) and
Mary Streeter (1719-1784). Richard died aged 93 years and was buried on 10 August 1843 in Shipley.
The 1841 census recorded that Richard was 90 years old and living with
his son William at Whitehall in Shipley.
Sarah Philpott may have been baptised on 12 May 1746 in
West Grinstead, Sussex and have been the daughter of William Phillpot and
Mary Millham. Sarah may have died aged 79 years
and have been buried on 1 May 1825 in Shipley, therefore, born about 1746.
Richard Newman and
Sarah Philpott had 8 known children:
Newman was baptised on 28 January 1776 in Shipley. He may
have died aged 79 years and have been buried on 18 November 1855 in
Hannah Greenfield by
licence on 30 October 1800 in Shipley. Their marriage licence was
issued on the same day by the Archdeaconry of Chichester and recorded
that he was a 21 year old bachelor of Shipley whilst she was a 21 year
old spinster of Pulborough. Surety for the licence was provided by
William himself and Richard Shotter.
Hannah died aged 79 years at Whitehall and was buried on 28 October 1860 in Shipley.
She was probably baptised on 2 December 1781 in Pulborough, the daughter
of Richard Greenfield and Sarah Stovel.
When the 1841 census was recorded, 65 year old William was an
agricultural labourer and he was living at Whitehall with his 59 year
old wife, 90 year old father and 63 year old James Newman.
(A James Newman aged 71 years was buried on 23 April
1849 in Shipley.) In 1851 the couple were
living at Whitehall along with their son William and 24 year old lodger
Michael Streater. William was then a 75 year old
agricultural labourer and said he was born in Shipley, and Hannah was 70
years old and said she was born in Pulborough.
William and Hannah had the following children:
Sarah Newman was baptised on 9 January 1803 in Shipley.
Might Sarah have married Stephen Whitington by
banns on 3 March 1830 in Shipley? He was a bachelor and she a
spinster. The witnesses to their marriage were William
Hurdon and Joseph Peirce.
James Newman was baptised on 2 December 1804 in Shipley.
He may have been buried on 29 December 1806 in Shipley, but the

In 1851 he was an unmarried 33 year old agricultural labourer and

November 1805 in Shipley. The witnesses to their marriage were
