My Hoadley Ancestors

Susan Hoadley (1834-1901) was my 2x Great Grandmother.  She was born in Henfield, Sussex, which is where she married Charles Dowlen (1827-1896) in 1856.  Her parents were John Hoadley (1799-1865) and Susan Norris (1802-1881) and they had married in Susan's home parish of Billingshurst, but raised their family in Henfield.

John's parents were Richard Hoadley (1762-1829) and Hannah Snashall (1763-1807).  Richard was the son of Thomas Hoadley (1738-1823) and Mary Matthew (1723-1816).  Thomas was the son of Richard Hoadley and Sarah Purvey who married in the Fleet Prison, London in 1732.

There were 2 Richard Hoadleys born about a year apart.  One was baptised in Shermanbury in 1705 and the other in Chaily in 1706.  I think Chailey Richard was the one who married Sarah, as she was buried in Chailey as a widow.  Also Shermanbury Richard had a brother who married, but didn't have children of his own, and in his will he mentioned various nephews and nieces, but the not the children of Richard and Sarah.
