Joseph Seager and Jane c 1715


Loyal Member
In my tree I have a Joseph Seager born 1721 in Kingswinford, Staffordshire to a Joseph and Jane. The couple also had two other sons called William, one born 1716 who presumably died as his brother William was born 1718. I cannot find any other births/baptisms to this couple, probably because Joseph died in 1724. Although his Will doesn't appear to be on line, other paperwork is and it names his widow as Jane.

What I cannot find is their marriage. If the William born 1716 was their firstborn the the marriage would be circa 1714/15 at a guess. Previous history of the family show them varying between Kingswinford, Staffs and Oldswinford Worcestershire so possibly the marriage took place somewhere in that general area.

Can anyone find what I can't seem to? Note, there are various spellings of Seager - Seger, Segar, Sagar etc.

There is a marriage in Kingswinford in 1715 between a Joseph Seager and Ann Rowlinson. I cannot find any children from that marriage but am at a bit of a loss as to how Ann in the marriage would be likely to become Jane in the baptisms and the Will papers, so have so far discounted it.
