Elizabeth died aged 71 and was buried in Sutton Valence on 30 June 1821.

Samuel died aged 83 and was buried in Sutton Valence on 15 December 1826.

Of their children:

  • Caroline married William Burton in Sutton Valence in 1792. 
  • A Thomas Honeysett and Catherine Thomas had banns called in Sutton Valence in 1811 but I have not found the marriage. Was this a son of Samuel and Elizabeth?
  • William's baptism has not been found but he was almost certainly a son of Samuel and Elizabeth. He married Winifred Weller in Headcorn and lived in Sutton Valence.
  • James married Elizabeth Thomas in Sutton Valence, where they had six children baptised and lived until 1827 when they emigrated to America and settled in Mayville, Chautauqua, NY. James was buried there in 1875. Interestingly, there is a Honeysett Road in Mayville!
