Born: 1737/38 Kirdford
Married: 1759 Amberley Thomas Bennett
Buried: 1808 Binstead
Jane Allen was baptised 21 January 1737 in Kirdford the daughter of John Allen and Debra Hampshire. Owing to the fact that the Gregorian calendar was still be used this was by the Julian calendar 1738. I have no conclusive evidence that they were her parents, but I have found no other suitable baptism and Jane gave one of her daughters the name Deborah, also another of John and Debra’s daughters was probably married at Amberley like Jane.
Jane married Thomas Bennett 22 April 1759 in Amberley by licence issued the same day. The sponsor was Jo Peters Burpham, yeoman farmer and the witnesses were John Peters and Thos Bonus. John Peters was, according to his own marriage licence 22/7/1759, a farmer from Burpham aged 25 (he married 17 year old Mary Miles in Rustington). Thomas Bonus was also a yeoman from Burpham according to his marriage licence dated 23/3/1760 when he married Ann Johnson in Burpham. He was 26 and been of parish for one month, although when his widowed father, also Thomas, married Elizabeth Smith widow he was also a yeoman of Burpham.
Jane Bennett was buried 14 November 1808 in Binsted.
