Family History



Heddington is not a common name in West Sussex. There is no baptism record for Sarah Heddington on the IGI. The only likely family for Sarah on the IGI is that of William Heddington who probably married twice in Kirdford, firstly to jane Cooper 9/6/1720 and secondly Mary Elice (Ellis) 24/10/1705. He had the following children recorded on IGI ; Henry (bapt 8/1724); Elizabeth (bapt 6/2/1725); Mary (bat 17/9/1727 buried 10/1/1730); Lydia (bapt 4/9/1733). A John Hedington was married in Kirdford 20/11/1705 to Elizabeth Coles. The West Sussex marriage index has translated her surname as Hedderington. I believe the name was confused sometimes with Etherington, but there is no Sarah Etherington recorded either.
