John WILLARD (c1720-1801)

and Jane KEWELL (1723-1798)


John Willard and Jane Kewell married on 17 April 1750 in Horsham, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

John Willard's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  He was probably buried on 22 May 1801 in Warnham.  I am assuming he was born in the 1720's or there abouts.

Jane Kewell was baptised on 28 April 1723 in Horsham, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Henry Kewell and Jane Hill.  Jane was probably buried on 11 May 1798 in Warnham.


John Willard and Jane Kewell had 4 known children:

  1. John Willard was baptised on 3 or 5 October 1751 in Warnham.  He died aged 77 years and was buried on 22 May 1829 in Shere, Surrey.

    John married Hannah Buck by banns on 8 August 1776 in Shere.  They were both then of Shere.

    Hannah died aged 70 years and was buried on 22 January 1826 in Shere, therefore, she was born about 1756.  She may have been baptised on 18 June 1753 in Rudgwick and have been the daughter of Richard Buck and Jane Edwards.

  2. Jane Willard was baptised on 24 April 1753 in Warnham.

    Jane may have married Thomas Lee on 13 December 1770 or 1771 in Rudgwick, Sussex.  The witnesses to their marriage were Edward Michell and William Allbery.

  3. William Willard was baptised on 11 April 1757 in Warnham.  He married Leah Jay in 1783.  (They have their own page.)

  4. Kitty Willard was baptised on 26 December 1758 in Warnham.
