Did You Know?

  • In 1852 Samuel Burchett was a Higler (a sort of small-time dealer)
  • Samuel Burchett and Mary Mepham had their daughter Jane Burchett baptised on 4th January 1824 and their son Job Burchett baptised on 4th January 1829.
  • Although the Old-Testament names Samuel Burchett and Mary Mepham gave to two of their children are associated with non-conformists, all but one of the children were baptised in the parish church. (Sarah Ann Burchett's baptism is recorded in the records of the Wesleyan circuit.)
  • Although it seems strange that there was such a long gap between the marriage of Samuel Burchett and Mary Mepham in Warbleton in 1810 and the baptism of their first child Samuel Burchet in Bexhill in 1814, I think the evidence from the 1841 and 1851 Warbleton censuses strongly suggests that they are the same couple. In 1841, when the younger children were still living with their parents, the next family includes a John Mepham. And the 1851 census, when Kezia Burchett was still living with her mother, says that Mary was born in about 1791 in Heathfield.
  • In 1851 William Burchett was living in the next household but one from Mary Mepham widow of Samuel Burchett; Samuel was possibly William's brother.

Possibly the Same Person?

Name Age Known Residence Occupation
The age on the death certificate does not correspond to the age on the 1841 census, but the census age seems unlikely as it would have made Samuel 14-19 when he married in 1810. The informant has the same name as two women on the same page of the census.
