Thomas Honnisett (1666 - 1730) of Westham, Sussex

Thomas, the eldest son of Adrian and Susanna, was baptised in Wartling on 11 November 1666. He married Jane Glid in Westham on 2 April 1689 where they had seven children baptised :

When his mother died in 1702 Thomas was bequeathed 'one pair of Tow sheets and a pair of Holland pillowcoats'. There were also bequests for some of his children.

Thomas was buried in Westham on 16 July 1730.

When Thomas' sister Mary died in 1733 she left money to Thomas' two surviving sons; 'Thomas is to have forty shillings and Joseph is to have thirty'.

Of their children:

  • Thomas moved east, marrying in Peasmarsh and starting several generations of Honeysett in Stone-in-Oxney.
  • Joseph was bound over to appear at the next quarter sessions (1721) in the sum of £40 for his good behaviour in the meantime (but I don't know what for). It may have been this Joseph who married Mary Day in Maidstone in 1726 but if so it is not known what happened to them.
