Sarah Foyle of Teffont Evias

Ari’s 5x great-grandmother Sarah Foyle was born in 1786 in Teffont Evias, Wiltshire, and baptised in Tisbury on 26 February. She was the first child of Jonas Foyle and Eve Snook.

On 13 April 1809, she married Joseph Beckett in Teffont Evias.

Joseph died in 1839, and the 1841 census shows Sarah as the head of the household, with daughter Elizabeth, son William, and a baby Eliza (not sure who she belonged to!).

I am not sure yet when Sarah died. There isn’t a death or burial that matches her age.
