Richard Ball
Elizabeth Thatcher
John Wingfield
Richard Ball
Susan Wingfield
circa 1720-1781
John Ball 1
of Hastings
born 1753
baptized 9 May 1753, All Saints Church, Hastings
died 28 April 1827, Hastings 2
will dated 9 April 1808
and proved 3 November 1827
His children are given as listed in his will of 1808, as listed in the
request for Counsel's opinion on recovering rent on the Wheelwright's
shop for Elizabeth Arrow, and also from the Gravestones in All Saints
graveyard. As I have been able to establish them, I have approximate
birth dates for all but the eldest son. I slotted him in (no evidence) in
as second child, since there is a gap at that poing. The birth dates
start at around 1780.

There are seemingly only two possible marriages for this couple:

Extract from the Sussex Marriage Index:
Place: Hastings All Saints, East Sussex, Date: 10 Sep 1771:
Subject: John BALL, bach otp
Spouse: Elizabeth HANSON, wid St.Mary in Castle (B)
witnesses: John KIRBY Wm COPPARD

Extract from the Sussex Marriage Index:
Place: Battle, East Sussex, Date: 21 Apr 1780:
Subject: John BALL, bach Westfield
Spouse: Elizabeth WENHAM, otp (B)

My guess is that this family is a product of the second marriage
above, John Ball with Elizabeth Wenham. None of their children are
to be found baptised in either All Saints or St Clements (I have not
checked Westfield) and the births seem to start around 1780.

There are four baptisms in All Saints, Hastings, in the early 1770s, for
children of a John and Elizabeth Ball, but since there are no baptisms
to be found in the parish church registers for the later children, whose
birth dates we are reasonably sure of, perhaps the family was non-
conformist and we may be dealing with two couples named John and
Elizabeth Ball. (see my notes on another John Ball).
