James SAYERS (c1764-1806)

and Elizabeth (?-?)


James Sayers and Elizabeth married some time before 1788.  Their first known child was born in West Chiltington, Sussex and they then settled in Storrington, Sussex.  A James Sayers had married Elizabeth Pennicot on 16 October 1786 in Yapton, Sussex.  Yapton to Storrington is about 15 miles.

James Sayers date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He died aged 42 years and was buried on 10 March 1806 in Storrington, Sussex, therefore, he was born about 1764/5.  He was a shoemaker.
