A girl Barbary was bap. 25.10.1781 at Clayton, daughter of James and Sarah RICHARDSON. This is a real possibility as both parent’s names (James, Sarah) were used for the children of Henry and Barbara, and this seems to be the only person in the area with the first name of Barbara/Barbary. (Note: James RICHARDSON married Sarah MOCKFORD 9.4.1777 at Clayton, Sussex). Also, James Richardson buried 30.4.1783 at Clayton “who died at Wickham in this parish, affidavit Sarah Morley”, and James RICHARDSON aged 76 yrs buried Keymer St Cosmos & St Damian 4.3.1802.
