DESCENDANTS OF SARAH GRAVES AND JOSEPH TURNER
OF HERTFORDSHIRE, ENGLAND
Sarah Graves (1) was born in 1801. She married Joseph Turner on 30 Sept. 1822 at Bayford Parish Church, Hertfordshire, England. He was born in 1791, and was a carpenter. The marriage record in the record office in Hertford states: Joseph Turner of the Parish of Bishops Stortford, Batchelor, to Sarah Graves of this Parish, Spinster, were married in this Church by Banns on 30 Day of September 1822. Robert Orme, Rector.
The family with all children listed below was in the 1841 census at Newgate St., Hatfield (?). They were in the 1851 census at the same address, with Joseph listed as general storekeeper and carpenter, born at Southgate, Middlesex, Sarah listed as born at Bishops Stortford, and children Thomas (carpenter), William (shoemaker apprentice), Ann and Edward still at home, all children listed as born at Hatfield.
