Lucy Young

b. 25 June 1775, d. 1827
FatherSamuel Young b. 22 Apr 1739
MotherMary Sutton b. 22 Jan 1742/43
     Lucy Young was born in 1775 at Eastbourne, Sussex, England; age 52 years at burial in 1827.1
Lucy Young was baptized on 25 June 1775 at Eastbourne St Mary, Eastbourne, Sussex, England.2 She was the daughter of Samuel Young and Mary Sutton.
Lucy's first marriage is considered to be:
Lucy Young married John Smart on 21 Jun 1795 at Eastbourne.
This fits her birth in c1775 (determined from her age given on her burial record), and also that there was an order for her removal from Bishopstone to Eastbourne in 1806.
There is some very useful information on the marriage licence issued one day before teh actual marriage:
John Smart is a bachelor in the 24th Royal Regiment Artillery encamped at Brighton. Lucy is age 20 marrying with the consent of her mother, Mary Young, widow of Eastbourne.
Another possibility that was considered was the marriage of Lucy Smith and Benjamin Smart at Beddingham in 1784 but her age would preclude this.3
Lucy Young and John Smart obtained a marriage licence on 20 June 1795 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England.
Lucy Young married John Smart on 21 June 1795 at Eastbourne, Sussex, England.
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 Young 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).3
Lucy Young witnessed the will of Thomas Woolgar dated 30 January 1816 at Archdeaconry of Lewes, Sussex, England.5,6
Lucy Young died in 1827 at South Heighton, Sussex, England.
Lucy Young was buried on 22 July 1827 at St Martin, South Heighton, Sussex, England, 52 years old.6
Note that the burial date is given as 22 Jul 1817 in the Sussex Burial Index but this is considered wrong. 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.
