and Charlotte KING (1786-1859)
Edward Boorman and Charlotte King were my 4x Great
to see their place in my pedigree chart.) They married by banns on 30
March 1807 at the parish church of The Assumption of Blessed Mary and St.
Nicholas in Etchingham, Sussex. He was then of Burwash and she of
Etchingham. Edward signed his name and Charlotte made her X mark.
The witnesses were Suz Apps and Jas Simmons. (I don't
know if Suz and Jas were relations or friends.)
Edward and Charlotte had 19 known grandchildren, all of whom were born
within the couple's life time.
Edward Boorman was born in December 1784 and baptised on 16 January
1785 at the parish church of St. Mary the Virgin in Salehurst, Sussex, aged 34 days. He was the youngest son of
Mary Jones (1742-1820). He died aged 76 years and was
buried on 22 March 1858 in Burwash, Sussex.
Charlotte King may have been born about 1786 in Burwash, and have
(1756-?). I have been unable to find her baptism. She died in
Wadhurst, Sussex aged 73 years and was buried on 12 December 1859 in
Burwash. A Charlotte King was baptised on 16 November
1787 in Salehurst, Sussex, the daughter of
James King and
Another Charlotte King, the base born daughter of
Frances Roots was baptised on 18 January 1789 in Burwash.
When the Poor Law Rates were assessed in 1827, Edward was living at Barn
House, Burwash, and was recorded as "poor", assessed at £1 and 5 shillings
and was not required to contribute. In 1841 he and Charlotte were
living in Burwash village along with Thomas King. In
1851 Edward was a farm bailiff of 57 acres employing 1 man, and the couple
were living alone at Daws Farm House in Burwash.

In 1841 Stephen and Charlotte were living
alone in Burwash village. Stephen was a carrier. I have not found
Charlotte’s baptism, nor do Stephen and Charlotte appear to have had any
