He is described as 'of Rotherhithe' in the parish register of Battle,
Sussex, at the time of their marriage.

The bulk of the research on the Thwaites family of Hastings was
done by Caroline and Harold Bamber, with more recent contributions
from David Thwaites of Canada, Kim Olsen of Australia and Lesley
Thwaites of England.

The fact of the marriage at Battle was discovered by Nancy Martin
of Canada, and told to me by Lesley Thwaites and the latter discovered
the Thwaites family record in the parish church at Rotherhithe. I extend
my grateful thanks to both of them for passing this information on to me.

will of 1803, or of any children of his. One presumes that

# The parents of Jeremiah Thwaites

Pending further investigation, I have assumed that the Jeremiah
Thwaites of Rotherhithe who married Mary Sargent in the parish
church at Battle in 1733, is the same person as the Jeremiah
Thwaites who was baptised in Rotherhithe parish church in 1708.
Unfortunately the marriage licence allegation and bond, which
might have given us Jeremiah's age at the time of his marriage
apparently exists no more, and his grave stone, when transcribed
in the 1890s was already in such poor repair that his age at death
could not be read.

In corroboration of this parentage is the fact that the father of the
Rotherhithe Jeremiah Thwaites was a sail maker, as was Jeremiah
Thwaites of Hastings and his son Thomas.
