John SETFORD (c1720-?)

and Ann (c1725-?)

 

John Setford and Ann may have married sometime before or about 1745, but no possible marriage has been found in the Sussex marriage index.

John Setford's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He may have died in or before 1762.

Ann's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.

 

John Setford and Ann may have had the following children:

  1. Charles Setford married Hannah sometime before or about 1771.  (They have their own page.)  Charles and Hannah may have had children baptised in Horsted Keynes, Rusper and Maresfield.  NOTE - I can not be certain Charles was a son of John and Ann.

  2. John Setford was born about 1747 and died aged 83 years in 1830.  He was baptised as an adult on 23 May 1768 in Horsted Keynes, Sussex.  John married Ann before or about 1771.  (They have their own page.)  John and Ann raised their family in Horsted Keynes.  NOTE - I can not be certain John was a son of John and Ann.

  3. Henry Setford was born about 1749/50.  He married Elizabeth Peckham in 1773.  (They have their own page.)  Henry and Elizabeth raised their family in Chailey.  NOTE - I can not be certain Henry was a son of John and Ann.

  4. Elizabeth Setford married Thomas Walker on 15 August 1776 in Oxted, Surrey.  NOTE - I can not be certain Elizabeth was a daughter of John and Ann.

  5. William Setford was baptised on 18 July 1754 in Worth, Sussex.  He married Elizabeth Marden in 1777.  (The have their own page.)  William and Elizabeth raised their family in Horsted Keynes.  His parents were named as John and Ann

  6. Joseph Setford was baptised on 3 March 1757 in Ifield, Sussex.  At time, his parents were described as Travellers.  He married Barbara Hollingdale in 1785.  (They have their own page.)  Joseph and Barbara may have raised their family in Westmeston.

  7. Moses Setford married Mary Wakeling in 1787.  (They have their own page.)  Moses and Mary raised their family in Lindfield.  He was of Newick when he married.    NOTE - I can not be certain Moses was a son of John and Ann.

  8. James Setford was baptised on 1 June 1762 in Rusper, Sussex.  Only his mother's name was recorded in the baptism register and she was described as a traveller woman.

    James married Ann and they had 1 known daughter:

    1. Elizabeth Setford was baptised on 16 May 1784 in Horsted Keynes, Sussex.  Did she marry George Watson on 19 January 1805 in East Grinstead, Sussex?  Did she marry George Watson by Licence on 19 January 1805 in East Grinstead?  She was then of East Grinstead and he of West Hoathly.  However, she may have had 2 cousins, Elizabeth Setford born in 1778 and Elizabeth Setford born in 1786.

  9. Martha Setford married William Arnold on 15 January 1787 in Ewhurst, Surrey.  NOTE - I can not be certain Martha was a daughter of John and Ann.

 

John and Ann would seem to have been the only couple of their generation in Sussex, but could they really have produced 7 sons who went on to have families of their own?  I would think it unlikely that all the above were siblings.

John and Ann were described as travellers in 1757, does this mean they were Romanies?  But there doesn't seem to have been any typically Romany forenames used in the Sussex Setford families.
