William WHITEMAN (1773-1852)

and Mary DAVIS (c1767-1847)

 

St. Mary, Udimore, from:  http://www.villagenet.co.uk/rotherlevels/villages/udimore.phpWilliam Whiteman and Mary Davis married by banns on 22 November 1791 at the parish church of St. Mary's in Udimore, Sussex.  At the time of their marriage William was of Udimore and Mary of Winchelsea, Sussex.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Whiteman and Francis Saunders.  (William and Mary were not my direct ancestors.  William's sister, Mary Godfrey Whiteman (1776-1845) was my 4x Great Grandmother.)

William Whiteman was baptised on 25 June 1773 in Udimore.  He was the son of Thomas Whiteman (1729-1810) and Sarah Fuller (1738-1809).  William died aged 79 years and was buried on 6 April 1852 in Udimore.  He was a farmer.

Mary Davis's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She died aged 80 years and was buried on 20 February 1847 in Udimore.

The 1851 census recorded that William was a 79 year old widower and an agricultural labourer and he was living with his daughter Maria and her husband at Court Lodge in Udimore.

 

William Whiteman and Mary Davis had 13 known children:

  1. Mary Ann Whiteman was baptised on 30 April 1792 in Udimore.

    She had 3 illegitimate daughters:

    1. Ann Maria Tuppen Whiteman was baptised on 15 July 1812 in Udimore.

    2. Alice Whiteman was baptised on 5 February 1815 in Udimore.  She died aged 80 years and her death was registered as Alice Masters in the first quarter of 1896 in the Battle registration district.  On 11 April 1815 a warrant was issued for the arrest of Thomas Potter of Icklesham, putative father of a child born to Mary Whiteman of Udimore.  (Thomas Potter junior of Staplehurst, married Sarah Philpott on 28 March 1815 in Udimore.

      Alice married twice, firstly to George Robinson in the fourth quarter of 1837 in the Battle registration district.  Then as a widow she married William Masters in the third quarter of 1875 in the Rye registration district.  William was her uncle by marriage.  He had previously married Alice's aunt Maria Whiteman (see further below).

      George was born about 1810/11 in Tenterden, Kent.  He died aged 60 years and his death was registered in the third quarter of 1870 in the Battle registration district.

      The 1841 records that couple and their young son were living at Lodge in Westfield.  Alice's name was wrongly recorded in the census as Sarah.  When the 1851 census was recorded, the couple and their 3 sons were still living at Lodge in Westfield and George was an agricultural labourer.  That census recorded her forename as Ellis.  The 1861 census recorded her name as Elice and the couple and their son John were living at Crowham Cottage in Westfield.  In 1871 Alice was a 56 year old widow living with her son John in Westfield.

      George and Alice had 3 known children:

      1. George Robinson was born about 1838/9 in Westfield.  He was 3 years old in 1841.  In 1851 he was 12 years old.  He was a master mariner.

        George married Martha Sabina Easton in the third quarter of 1861 in the Hastings registration district.

        Martha was born about 1836 in Westfield.

        When the 1871 census was recorded Martha was living at 7 North Street in the St. Mary Magdalen district of Hastings.  She was then 35 years old and a captain's wife.  Her husband was not at home on census night, although 4 children were with her.  Also part of the household were 23 year old Edward Potter and his 20 year old wife Clara Potter and their 5 week old son Edward Potter (please note, their surname may have been Porter).

        George and Martha had 4 known children:

        1. Shelly E. Robinson was born about 1863 in Hastings.  She was and 8 year old scholar in 1871.

        2. Minnie A. Robinson was born about 1864 in Hastings.  She was a 7 year old scholar in 1871.

        3. Frederick S. Robinson was born about 1867 in Hastings.  He was a 4 year old scholar in 1871.

        4. Clara I. Robinson was born about 1869 in Hastings.  She was 2 years old in 1871.
