man William Apps‏‎ 1)
Born ‎± 1723 Aged 75 at death2) 3)
Baptised ‎27 Nov 1723 Ticehurst, Sussex, England 3)
Died ‎1799 Brenchley, Kent, England Yeoman‎, approximately 76 years 1)
Occupation: ‎1761 Ticehurst, Sussex, England; Thatcher 4)
Residence: ‎between 1790 and 1799 Brenchley, Kent, England 5) 1)

Will signed: ‎17 Sep 1799 1)


Notes: William's will makes varied bequests to:
Two deceased sons - Edward Apps and John Apps
Two sons - Edward and John
Daughter Mary, now the wife of Jeffery Coppins
Grandsons of my daughter Mary; William, John, George, Edward, Jesse
Grandaughters of my daughter Mary; Elizabeth, Ann, Sarah and Susannah
Daughter Keturah, wife of Edward Ffilmer
Grandchildren via Keturah - Elizabeth, Susannah, Charlotte
Grandaughter Mary, daughter of John Apps

That William baptised in Ticehurst, is the same individual as William who subsequently lived in Brenchley, can be confirmed with reasonable confidence from the names of the children being baptised at Ticehurst matching the children subsequently listed in William's will - including the name Keturah, which is sufficiently unusual for it to be extremely unlikely to be coincidental.

There is a settlement certificate dated 1754, for William Apps of Ticehurst, in Ticehurst.
