Lucy Smart

b. circa 1765, d. 1817
     Lucy Smart was born circa 1765 at Sussex, England; age 52 years at burial in 1817.1
I think that it is possible that her first husband was Benjamin SMART, but I haven’t investigated that idea:
Extract from the Sussex Marriage Index:
Place: Beddingham, East Sussex, Date: 22 Oct 1784:
Subject: Benjamin SMART, Frith St. LND
Spouse: Lucy SMITH, otp (lic)

There is a Richard Smart baptised in Tarring Neville on 13 Mar 1808 to Richard & Philly Smart. Could the father be a son of Lucy Smart? There was a second baptism of a George Smart to the same parents on 11 Feb 1810 with the note "of South Heighton".3
Lucy was given a removal order in 1806: Lewes Sessions, 18 April 1806 746. SMART Lucy, widow; JPs order removing her from [South] Heighton to Eastbourne recorded and confirmed.4
Lucy Smart married Thomas Woolgar, son of George Woolgar and Mary Allwork, on 17 November 1807 at Preston, Sussex, England, Thomas is a widower of Brighton and Lucy a widow of this parish (Preston).2
Lucy Smart died in 1817 at South Heighton, Sussex, England.
Lucy Smart was buried on 22 July 1817 at St Martin, South Heighton, Sussex, England, 52 years old.5
Lucy Smart witnessed the will of Thomas Woolgar dated 30 January 1816 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England.6,7
From Marion Woolgar: According to my notebook entry, Lucy WOOLGAR was buried on 22 Jul 1827 aged 52 years at South Heighton per ESRO ref PAR 374/1/5/1. I have collected other entries in date order from the same volume and so I am pretty sure that 1827 is correct.
This obviously needs further research (GGB).
