Birth about 1690 Gilmonby

Sarah was born about 1693 probably in Gilmonby, a hamlet at the extreme north-west edge of Yorkshire just over the River Greta from Bowes in County Durham. Her father was Charles Whittel who seems to have become a rich man in this hamlet, or perhaps across the river in Bowes.

Marriage 1714 to George Overend

George Overend of Fangfoss near Pocklington in the East Yorkshire wolds was the son of yeomen, farmers owning their own fertile lands but not gentry, still less Aristocrats. His parents negotiated a marriage with Sarah Whittel of Gilmonby, whose father put £500, a huge sum of money into the deal, while the Overends put in over 27 oxgangs of fertile land in East Yorkshire, perhaps 300 acres.


  • Marriage Settlement: Timothy Overend and his son and heir George O., both of Fangfoss gents to Charles Whitell of Gillmonby gent. and Rev. Joseph Lowe of Pocklington: prior to marriage of G.O. and Sarah daughter of C.W.
