Charles SETFORD (c1745-1808)

and Hannah (c1747-1825)


Charles Setford and Hannah may have married sometime before or about 1771, but no possible marriage has been found in the Sussex Family History Group's marriage index.

Charles Setford's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He may have been the son of John Setford and Ann.  A Charles Setford, an aged traveller, was buried on 22 February 1808 in Rusper, Sussex.

Hannah's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She died aged 82 years and was buried on 25 December 1825 in Horsted Keynes.


Charles Setford and Hannah may have had the following children:

  1. Charles Setford was born about 1771.  He died aged 81 years at the Union House in Uckfield and was buried on 5 June 1852 in Maresfield, Sussex.    NOTE - I can not be certain Charles was a son of Charles and Hannah.

    Might Charles have married Ann before or about 1828?  And might they be the parents of:

    1. Hannah Hanel Letford was born on 26 November 1828 and baptised on 15 February 1829 at the Hanover Chapel Dorset Gardens (Independent) in Bognor Regis, Sussex.

  2. Hannah Setford may have been part of this family.

    Hannah had an illegitimate daughter:

    1. Elizabeth Setford was privately baptised on 19 October 1792/3 in Plumpton, Sussex and received into the Church on 27 October 1792/3.  She died as an infant and was buried on 24 January 1794 in Plumpton.

  3. David Setford was baptised on 28 August 1774 in Horsted Keynes, Sussex.  He married twice, firstly to Jane Hastings in 1803 and then to Henrietta Kemp in 1827.  (They have their own page.)

  4. Amelia Setford was baptised on 18 January 1778 in Horsted Keynes and buried there on 22 February 1778.

  5. Amelia Selford was baptised on 7 July 1779 in Horsted Keynes.  She died aged 91 years and her death was registered in the third quarter of 1869 in the Cuckfield registration district.

    Amelia married William Marchant by banns on 26 December 1798 in Chailey.  She was then of Chailey and he of Lindfield.  The witnesses to the marriage were James Marchant and John Knapp.

    When the 1841 census was recorded the couple were living in Lindfield.  William was then said to be a 65 year old agricultural labourer and Amelia was 60.  Also part of their household was 40 year old William Marchant, 5 year old Jane Marchant and 3 year old John Marchant.  In 1851, Amelia was a 72 year old widow living with her 50 year old widower son William at Pot Croft in Lindfield.  Amelia was then a nurse and her son a farm labourer.  The 1861 census records that Amelia was 82 years old and living with her 60 year old son in Lindfield.

  6. Elizabeth Setford was buried on 3 May 1786 in Horsted Keynes.  The burial register noted that she was the daughter of Charles and Hannah.
