Richard REDFORD (1711-1779)

and Mary YOUNG (c1702-1769)

 

St. Margarets, Angmering, by Cameron WellerRichard Redford and Mary Young were my 6x Great Grandparents  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 4 May 1735 at the parish church of St. Margarets in Angmering, Sussex.  (The painting of St. Margarets has come from Cameron Weller, Landscape and Marine Artist.  Please click on the picture to visit his website and buy his work.  Please do not copy the picture as it is copyright protected - I have permission from the artist to display the picture on this page.)

Richard Redford was baptised on 15 May 1711 in Wisborough Green, Sussex.  He was the son of 5 162 Thomas Redford (1682-?) and Sarah Hammond (c1685-?).  He died aged 68 years on 10 November 1779 and was buried on 18 November 1779 in Pulborough, Sussex.  His headstone inscription records that he was Mr. Richd. Redford.  Richard left a will dated 1 November 1779 and proved on 27 November 1779.  (Click here to read my transcript of his will.)  At the time of his death he was a farmer in Pulborough.  Unfortunately he did not mention whereabout when he made his will, although he hoped the property would pass to his youngest daughter and her husband, providing the landlords approved.

Mary Young may have been have been born about 1701/2.  She was buried on 12 April 1769 in Pulborough.  According to a transcript of the headstone she shares with her husband, she died aged 67 years on 10 April 1769.  At one point I had considered she was baptised on 29 September 1719 in Billingshurst, Sussex, the daughter of 5 188 Richard Young (c1685-1766) and 5 188 Susanna Goodwin (1686-1741), but that was before I knew her age at death.  See further down this page for details of possible parents.

Given that Mary may have been about 33/34 years old when she married Richard, might she have been a widow when she married?  The 1735 marriage entry in the Angmering register does not say whether she was a spinster or a widow.  Other marriages recorded at that time in Angmering did record if the bride was a widow.  Might she have previously married Edward Young on 5 October 1725 in Angmering, as Mary Clements?  Probably not, as it would seem Edward was buried on 1 November 1746 in Angmering.

 

Richard Redford and Mary Young had 7 known children:

  1. Mary Redford was baptised on 2 February 1735/6 in Pulborough.  She was buried on 9 December 1807 in Pulborough.  Mary was mentioned in her father's will, as the wife of George Peacock, although I have not found their marriage.  Her father left her a legacy of five pounds for her own use and to be given to her without the knowledge of her husband.

    George was buried on 16 February 1812 in Pulborough.  Might he have been baptised on 19 March 1733 in Wisborough Green, Sussex, the son of Richard Peacock and Sarah King?
