Joseph SETFORD (1757-1835)

and Barbara HOLLINGDALE (c1760-?)

 

Joseph Setford and Barbara Hollingdale married by banns on 19 April 1785 in East Chiltington, Sussex.  They were both then of East Chiltington.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Joseph Setford was baptised on 3 March 1757 in Ifield, Sussex.  He was the son of John Setford and Ann, who at the time of Joseph's baptism were said to be travellers.  He died in Chiltington and was buried on 1 April 1835 in Westmeston, Sussex.

Barbara Hollingdale was probably baptised on 28 November 1762 in Barcombe, Sussex and the daughter of Edward Hollingdale and Sarah Presnall.  Another Barbara Hollingdale married John Sandal by banns on 21 December 1797 in Hamsey, Sussex.  That Barbara was then of Ditchling and John of Hamsey.  The IGI only records the one Barbara Hollingdale baptism in 1762.  (See below for 1762 Barbara's siblings.)

 

Joseph Setford and Barbara Hollingdale may have had the following children:

  1. Ann Setford was baptised on 19 February 1786 in Westmeston.  Her parents were then named as Joseph and Ann.

    As Ann Selford she married Henry Pannett by banns on 3 August 1818 in East Chiltington, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Chailey.

    In 1841, 56 year old Ann Pannett was a dressmaker living in the High Street, Lewes, in the home of William Haylor.  Her younger sister Barbara was also living at the same address.
