and Ann MILLS (1733-1776)
William Quait and Ann Mills married on 4
May 1752 in Horsham, Sussex. (They were not my direct ancestors.)
William Quait may have been baptised on 3 February 1729 at St.
James in Clerkenwell, London, the son of
George Quait and
Mary, or on 10 March 1732
in Ash, Surrey, the son of William Quait and Ann
Harwood. (One of them married
Elizabeth Woodford on 3 March 1754 at St. Botolph's, Bishopgate,
London.) William may have been buried on 1 January 1797 in Horsham, as
per the IGI non-conformist records.
Ann Mills may have been buried on 31 December 1776
in Warnham, Sussex. She may have been baptised on 22 February 1732/3 in
Horsham, the daughter of Edman Mills (?-1735) and
Ann Willougby. But there was another Ann Mills
baptised 20 November 1727 in Horsham, the daughter of John Mills
and Ann Pryer. Given that Ann's last known child was
born in 1773, I think it more likely she was born 1733. After
Edman Mills death his widow Ann may have married
On 27 December 1757 in Horsham, William was a witness to the marriage of
Benjamin Perry a husbandman from Oxted, Surrey and
Mary Mills. The other witness was Jane Hunt.
