A collection of documented Waggon/Waghorn/Waghorne people in Ticehurst, Sussex, England

To try to identify family of William Waggon/Waghorn/Waghorne who lived in Ticehurst, and identify his correct place of birth.

Background:

William was born during a time of civil and religious upheaval, just after the English Civil war[1] and the protectorate period of Oliver Cromwell [2]. During this period after the dissolution of the Monarchy and the Church of England, the Dissenter groups[3] were able to thrive without fear of persecution, and many Dissenting families did not have their children baptised.

The restoration of the Stuart Monarchy took place in 1660[4].

William would have been born about 1654-1663, at a time when there were gaps in the Anglican parish registers and an increase in the number of Dissenters.

Lists of Dissenters are usually un-indexed, and some Dissenter families were recorded on Anglican register flyleaves, or inserted randomly within a register eg. a list of children born and not baptised in the parish of Ticehurst from 1695[1].

Proposed birth and baptism at East Grinstead is not supported because although a William Waghorne was baptised at East Grinstead, there is no evidence that it was this William that married at Wadhurst in 1686 and was living in Ticehurst after his marriage and had children baptised at Ticehurst from 1687. There is no settlement certificate issued by the parish of East Grinstead to the Parish of Ticehurst. See Settlement certificates lodged with the parish of Ticehurst, Sussex PAR 492 32/1 Settlement certificates 1606-1788 at FamilySearch. Even if William had been apprenticed from East Grinstead to another parish prior to Ticehurst, there should have been a Settlement certificate issued, if William had originated anywhere other than Ticehurst.

More research is required to determine the family of William - did anyone leave wills naming William, his wife, or children? Are there any Apprenticeship records for William naming his father? Records relating to William's grandchildren Daniel Waghorne and Elisha Waghorne reference a kinsman Richard Wickham, Excise Officer of Ilchester, Somerset in 1769, of Havant, Hampshire in 1765, and Heith, Hampshire in 1758, late of Ticehurst...how is Richard Wickham connected?

The will of Richard Wickham the Elder of Ticehurst, cordwainer dated 16 January 1753, proved 11 February 1758[2] may give additional relationships between the Wickham family and the Waghorne family

The will of William Waghorn, Carpenter of Ticehurst proved 16th July 1754 may name uncles/aunts or cousins[3]


From 1668

Thomas Waggon married Anne Burgess in 1680 at Ticehurst[4]

Although Thomas married Anne at Ticehurst (probably Anne's hometown) Thomas and Ann had their children baptised at Frant, and Frant is probably where Thomas was residing when he married.

William Wagghorn married Dorothy Burgess on the 6th April 1686, at St. Peter and St. Paul, Wadhurst, Sussex, England[5] but was likely resident at Ticehurst, with Wadhurst being Dorothy's place of residence.

Marriage of William Wagghorn & Dorothy Burgess.

Unfortunately the marriage was by banns. If they had married by licence, then possible relatives may have acted as bondsmen.

Jane Waggon married James Holt on the 14th April 1687 at St. Mary the Virgin, Ticehurst, Sussex[6]. James and Jane had only 2 children baptised at Ticehurst: John (1689) and James (1690) and a stillborn son who died at Ticehurst and was buried at Wadhurst in 1696[7]. Jane appears to have died in 1702/1703 at Ticehurst and was buried on the 19th February 1702/3 at Sts. Peter & Paul, Wadhurst, Sussex[8]. So Wadhurst was likely the place where Jane was originally from. An entry was also included for Jane wife of James Holt buried at Wadhurst February 1702/3 amongst the list of children born but not baptised at St. Mary the Virgin, Ticehurst, Sussex[9]

Elizabeth Waggon (widow) married Thomas Burges on the 14th October 1688 at Ticehurst.

Other Waghorn(e)s buried at Ticehurst:

  1. Elizabeth Waghorn wife of William Waghorn, carpenter buried 24th October 1718[10]
  2. Elizabeth Waghorn infant buried August 1722[11]

Other Waghorn(e) Carpenters in the area
