Anne Forde

b. circa 1755
     Anne Forde was born circa 1755 at Sussex, England.
There are two possibilities for the baptism of Anne Forde in the Ringmer parish register:
5.4.1752 Anne dau. Thomas and Mary Ford.
2.8.1747 Anne dau. John and Mary Ford.
The 1747 baptism is the only baptism recorded for John and Mary, yet there are many baptisms for Thomas and Mary Ford, and John and Sarah Ford at this time. However, there is also a baptism for parents John and Sarah on 22.3.1747 indicating that John and Mary were probably a different family and not just an error in the register.
The family of Thomas and Mary Ford were:
Mary bap. 24.6.1738, Ringmer (m. William CLARK, 23.10.1768, Ringmer, (witness Thomas Foord, Edward Finch))
Thomas bap. 25.7.1740, Ringmer
John bap. 20.4.1742, Ringmer
Edward bap. 9.1.1746, Ringmer
William bap. 1.7.1750, Ringmer
Anne bap. 5.4.1752, Ringmer
Charles bap. 19.10.1755, Ringmer
The family of John and Sarah Ford were:
William bap 1738 (bur. 3.5.1758, Ringmer, age 19 years).
Sarah bap. 8.5.1743, Ringmer
Elizabeth bap. 22.3.1747, Ringmer (bur. 31.7.1749, Ringmer (?))
Fanny bap. 27.6.1749, Ringmer
A number of baptisms in Ringmer are recorded to a John Foord between 1759 and 1775 (no wife mentioned). These are Philly (1759), Mary (1771), John (1773), Sarah (1773), William (1775).
A search for all marriages contained in the Sussex Marriage Index (about 90% complete) of Ann Ford's between 176585 found eight marriages including the one to Thomas Taylor. The most likely marriage for the other Anne Ford born in Ringmer was in Waldron to Thos. Hunt on 25 June 1769. The other marriages were considerable distances from Ringmer. Further research is needed but it looks likely that Anne, daughter of Thomas and Mary Ford, born 1752 is the one that married Thomas Taylor.
Anne Forde married Thomas Taylor, son of Abraham Taylor and Ann (?), on 1 December 1780 at Ringmer, Sussex, England. The marriage banns were read on 1st, 8th, and 15th October 1780.
The family appears to have moved from Ringmer sometime after 1786. The parish of West Firle is likely as their son Abraham settled there. The baptism for Sarah (1789) at West Firle was found in the East Sussex Baptisms Index (M. Burchall Collection). The word "paupers" was written against the entry indicating that they did not have to pay the baptisms tax. There are probably more children to be found as the film containing the baptisms index only went to 1790.
