Note on Husband: Joseph SPARSHOTT - shared note

1. At the time of the marriage of his son George, his profession is given as Labourer.


2. If I take the Goerge Sparshott born 1818 in St. Pancras, Chichester to be the entry I want, then Joseph's wife's name is Sarah. There is a possible candidate for the couple as George Sparshott and Sarah Hinch who married in Portsea in 1816. (According to the spelling of the surname was Spashatt.)


3. There is a possible Joseph Sparshot born 1781 in Portsea, but his wife is given by John Sparshatt as Martha Taylor, which rules him out unless she died at an early age. He is in the on-line IGI and John Sparshatt has some information on him and his parents/grandparents at : Unfortunately the Hampshire burials index doesn't record the death of any Martha Sparshot (or for that matter Joseph). So either they moved outside the county, or else they survived beyond 1837 (which is the end of the index).


4. At there is a record of the baptism of a Joseph Spashat on 6/5/1768 at the Meeting House Alley Baptist Church, Portsea, Hants. This would have made him 48 at the time of his marriage. A little old?

Note on Wife: Sarah HINCH - shared note

1. The WSRO have card indexes for the 1841/61/71/91 censuses for Chichester and all surrounding parishes (including Westhampnett RD[. The only Sarah Sparshott is aged 45 in Selsey with children Amos and James. Obviously a red herring since the baptism records of the two children give their father as James.


2. There is a record of the christening of a Sally Hinch at the church of St. Peter & St. Paul, Fareham, Hants on 19/10/1792. Her parents were James and Elizabeth Hinch. Seems very plausible.
