  • Notes 
    • Born about 1775 from the age given at her death. We do not know where she was born.She was married as Martha Martin to Joseph White or Waight at Highclere on 27 March 1795 and was said to be of that parish. A witness to the marriage was William Hidden (W013). Only a few days later on 5 April Joseph White of Highclere was buried. On Christmas Eve 1798 she married W013 who was evidently a friend of Joseph.
      William & Martha had 4 children born in 1799,1801,1806 & 1808. The eldest child Letitia was bapt in Kintbury but the others were bapt in Speen.
      She is described as 'my dear and beloved wife' in William's will in 1838.
      In 1841 Martha was living in Ramsbury of independent means with Hannah Martin. Unusually for the 1841 census exact ages are given and Martha is 68, and Hannah 47. This enable Matha's birthdate to be calculated as about 1773. Martha is not born in the county (Wiltshire). Martha was buried in Ramsbury in 1846 aged 72 giving a birthdate of 1774. It is likely that Hannah Martin was buried in Ramsbury in 1847 or 1849 as she cannot be found in the 1851 census. There is a possible bapt for Hannah Martin in the adjacent parish of Hungerford in 1792, and it is possible that her father Edward Martin is a brother of Martha, but no bapt for Martha has been found in Hungerford. There is a possibkle bapt in Bishopstone, Wilts in 1772.
