Richard SAYERS (1788-?)

and Ann BACK (1787-?)

 

Richard Sayers and Ann Back married on 20 December 1807 in Storrington, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  Ann was the sister of my 4x Great Grandfather, George Back (1797-?).)  (Can anyone tell me the names of the witnesses?)

Richard Sayers was baptised on 30 November 1788 in West Chiltington, Sussex.  He was the son of James Sayers (c1764-1806) and Elizabeth (possibly Elizabeth Pennicot).  He, like his father, was a shoemaker.  I have not found Richard in the 1851 census.  The death of a Richard Sayers was registered in the third quarter of 1845 in the Brighton registration district.

Anne Beck was baptised on 18 November 1787 at St. Nicholas, Brighton, Sussex.  She was the daughter of William Beck (1765-1844) and Ann Batchelor (c1762-1846).  Ann most probably died before 1841.  The death of an Ann Sayers was reigstered in the third quarter of 1840 in the Brighton district.

When the 1841 census was recorded, 50 year old Richard was a shoemaker and living in the home of 55 year old Ann Cobby, a widow, in King Street, Brighton.  Also with him was 13 year old Thomas Sayers.  (Thomas may have been baptised on 31 December 1826 at St. Nicholas, the son of William Sayers and Mary.)

 

Richard Sayers and Ann Back had 10 known children:

  1. Richard Sayers was baptised on 28 January 1809 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.

  2. Ann Sayers was baptised on 26 February 1810 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  She was most probably the informant named on her grandmother's death certificate in 1846.

    Ann married George Hammond by licence on 6 February 1830 in Brighton.  She was then a minor and married with consent of her parents.  George was a bachelor and they they were both of Brighton.  Their marriage licence was issued on the previous day by the Archdeaconry of Lewes.

    George may have died some time between April 1834 and by about mid 1837, or he may have left Ann.

    The 1841 census records that Ann was the head of her household and living in Upper Gardner Street, Brighton, along with her 2 sons, 30 year old W. Roberts and 10 year old Robert Sayers.  In 1851 she was a 40 year old shopkeeper living at 54 Jubilee Street, Brighton, along with 3 children and 30 year old William Brewer and 41 year old William Roberts who were both unmarried shoemakers.  In 1861, 50 year old Ann was a widow and greengrocer and she was living in Jubilee Street, along with 2 children and 51 year old widower, William Roberts.

    2. Henry Hammond was baptised on 6 May 1832 at St. Nicholas in Brighton, at which time his parents were living in Spring Gardens, and his father, George, was a bricklayer.  The 1841 census records that he was 5 years old.  In 1851 he was a 19 year old shoemaker.  He married Sarah A.  In 1871 the couple and their 3 children were living at 14 Washington Street, Brighton, a house they were sharing the family of his sister Amelia and her 3 children.

    3. Alfred Hammond was baptised on 27 April 1834 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  His father was named as George and he was a bricklayer of North Lane.  Alfred was said to be 2 years old in 1841.  In 1851 he was a 17 year old shoemaker.  Alfred may have married Eliza and they may have had the following children:

      1. Elizabeth Hammond

      2. George Hammond

      3. Alfred Hammond
