Samuel Honyset (1725 - 1788) of Stone in Oxney

Samuel, a son of Thomas and Ann, was baptised in Stone on 28 March 1725. He may have married Elizabeth Piper in Beckley on 11 May 1752 but if so she must have died soon after and there appears to be no record of any children. Samuel Honeysett, 'late of Stone, now of Winchelsea', married Mary Newsam by licence in Peasmarsh on 16 November 1755. On 11 March 1757 Mary and two children, John and Katherine were removed from Winchelsea to Stone as Samuel had deserted them. However they had a further ten children baptised in Stone:
