Miscellanenous Sawyers

In July 2009 Sean Carter got in touch.  His 3x Great Grandmother was Priscilla Wilden Sawyers, the daughter of Mary Sawyers born about 1775 who married William Wilden.  Sean wondered if I had come across Priscilla and her mother, but unfortunately I didn't have any more details.

Priscilla Wilden Sawyers married George Bassett Funnell on 21 October 1822 in Maresfield, Sussex.  When the 1851 census was recorded the couple were living in Park Street, Tunbridge Wells, Kent.  George was then a 47 year old wheelwright and gave his place of birth as Buxted, Sussex.  Priscilla was 53 and said she was born in Fletching, Sussex.  With them were 2 of their children, namely, 20 year old labourer Thomas Funnell born in Maresfield, and 15 year old labourer Charles Funnell born in Buxted.

Mary Sawyers married William Wilding on 14 October 1798 in Maresfield, Sussex.  Might Mary have been the daughter of Stephen Sawyer and Lucy Campbell?
