and Mary (c1736-1821)
and Mary married sometime before or about 1769. They may have
married as Thomas Wicks and Mary Chandler on 25 October 1761
in Wadhurst, Sussex. (They were not my direct ancestors.)
Weeks's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me. He
died before December 1821.
Mary was born about 1736 and died
aged 85 years when she was described as Mary Wicks widow of Wadhurst.
She was buried there on 31 December 1821.
and Mary had 6 known children:
Weeks was baptised on 4 June 1769
James Weeks was baptised on 1 December 1771 in
James married Mary.
In 1841, 70 year old James and 70 year old Mary were living at Riseden which was then in
Wadhurst. Also with them was 15 year old William Weeks
and 5 year old Jesse Gibbs.
When the 1851 census was recorded he was most probably the
80 year old James Weeks, a widower, living at Riseden Farm in
Ticehurst along with his 25 year old granddaughter Ann Packam who
was his housekeeper and 27 year old grandson William Weeks.
Both James and William were then farm labourers.
James and Mary may have had the following children:
Weeks was born on 16 September 1797 in Wadhurst.
Weeks was born on 3 January 1800 in Wadhurst.
Weeks was baptised on 5 January 1806 in Wadhurst. Hannah
married William Gibb by banns on 12 May 1824 in
Wadhurst. They were both then of Wadhurst.
Weecks married William Packham by banns on 25
August 1828 in Frant, Sussex. He was a bachelor and she a spinster
and they were both of Frant.
Samuel Weeks was baptised on 6 March 1774 in
Wadhurst. He may have married twice, secondly to
Jane Groves in
1800. (They have their own page.)
was baptised on 18 February 1776 in Wadhurst. He married Philadelphia Akehurst
in 1797. (They have their own page.)
William Weeks was baptised in November 1777
in Wadhurst. He died aged 53 and was buried on 18 March 1831 in
was baptised on 25 December 1780 in Wadhurst. He married
in 1801. (They have their own page.)
The 1761 marriage
of Thomas Wicks and Mary Chandler was found in the Sussex
marriage index and needs to be checked against the original parish register
for further details. If this was the marriage of Thomas and Mary, then
there was most likely to have been other children born between 1761 and
1769, and again the parish register needs to be checked.
baptisms for either Thomas Weeks/Wicks and Mary Chandler have
been found in the IGI or the BVRI. The East Sussex Baptism Index held
at the East Sussex Record Office has yet to be checked.
