Thomas SERGEON (c1720-1754)

and Mary JOHNSON (c1720-1759)


Thomas Surgeon and Mary Johnson married on 21 October 1740 in Henfield, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)  Another Thomas Surgeon married Elizabeth Evans on 1 October 1738 in Henfield.

Thomas Sergeon's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  As Thomas Sargeant he was probably buried on 23 October 1754 in Upper Beeding, Sussex.  Might he have been born on 20 August 1719 and baptised on 30 August 1719 in Henfield, the son of Richard Surgent and Margery Bud?

Mary Johnson's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  As Widow Sergeant she was most probably buried on 31 August 1759 in Upper Beeding.


Thomas Sergeon and Mary Johnson had 5 known children:

  1. Thomas Surgeon was baptised on 7 September 1746 in West Chiltington.

  2. Mary Sergeant was baptised on 11 September 1748 in Upper Beeding.  She may have married Richard Budd on 31 May 1768 in Upper Beeding.

  3. Richard Sergeant was privately baptised on 7 October 1750 in Upper Beeding.

  4. John Sergeant was baptised on 3 May 1752 in Upper Beeding.

  5. Elizabeth Sergent was admitted into the Upper Beeding church on 2 September 1759.  Might she have been born in 1754?  She may have married James Feast on 12 October 1783 in Upper Beeding.
