Narrative and Notes

We know that Sarah married William KEMSEY/KEMPSEY from her father's will. They appear as KEMSEY in the 1841 census living in Bromsgrove. William was a nail maker from Bromsgrove and was 10 years older than Sarah.

No marriage of a Sarah WEAVER and William KEMSEY has been found, but it is possible that she had had an earlier marriage. A Sarah WEAVER married Thomas BEECH in Kidderminster in May 1800 and they had two children: Rebecca (1801-1802) and Robert (1803-?). A Thomas BEECH died in Kidderminster in 1807, but as there were multiple Thomas BEECH's in Kidderminster at this time this burial could be the wrong Thomas. In 1815 a Sarah BEECH married a William KEMSEY in Kidderminster.

In 1819 William KEMSEY was left a property in Bromsgrove by Sarah's father William. No baptismal records for any children from the KEMSEY marriage have been found, although Sarah would have 40 years old when she re-married. No trace of Robert BEACH/KEMSEY has been found.

William died in 1843 and Sarah died in 1850.
