Richard NEWMAN (1750-1843)

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:

  1. William 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 Shipley.

    William married 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:

    1. 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.

    2. James Newman was baptised on 2 December 1804 in Shipley.  He may have been buried on 29 December 1806 in Shipley, but the burial register noted that he was the son of William and Ann.

    3. William Newman was baptised on 27 July 1817 in Shipley.  In 1851 he was an unmarried 33 year old agricultural labourer and living with his parents.

  2. Ann Newman was buried on 18 May 1777 in Shipley.  The burial register recorded that she was the daughter of Richard and Sarah.

  3. Ann Newman was baptised on 26 May 1779 in Shipley and buried there on 12 December 1779.

  4. Hannah Newman was buried on 24 December 1780 in Shipley.  The burial register recorded that she was the daughter of Richard and Sarah.

  5. Elizabeth Newman was baptised on 18 May 1783 in Shipley.

    Elizabeth may have married Daniel Fines by banns on 7 November 1805 in Shipley.  The witnesses to their marriage were James Newman and William Jutton.

  6. John Newman was baptised on 17 October 1784 in Shipley.  He may have died from consumption aged 43 years and have been buried in Shipley on 14 September 1828.

  7. Sarah Newman was baptised on 21 January 1787 in Shipley.  The baptism register recorded that her father was a pauper.

  8. Edward Newman was baptised on 1 February 1789 in Shipley.  He married Sarah Johnson in 1808.  (They have their own page.)
