Joseph Honyset (1763 - 1797) of Stone in Oxney

Joseph, a son of Samuel and Mary, was baptised in Stone on 30 June 1763. He married Elizabeth Tolhust in Newchurch on 8 August 1785. Described as paupers in the Stone parish registers, they had five daughters baptised in Stone:


25 Feb 1787


26 May 1789

bur 17 Nov 1789


30 Dec 1792


19 Nov 1795

bur 4 Dec 1795


7 Oct 1798

Mary was never to see her father as Joseph was buried on 6 November 1797. Presumably she was several months old when baptised as the baptismal record specifically names Joseph as the father. Elizabeth subsequently remarried in 1803 to Thomas Springett.

Of their children:

  • Caroline married Richard Seager/Seeker in Smarden on 9 August 1814 and lived in Staplehurst.
  • Mary may have had an illegitimate son Joseph baptised on 27 May 1818.
