(?) EDWARD ISAAC, Great VIII Grandfather of Richard Barton

Son of Edward Isaac and Joane

Husband of Jane

Father of Thomas Isaac I

 

Edward Isaac is mentioned in his father’s will of 1650. He was mentioned in a Quarter Session Settlement for Sarah White in Easter 1680 as ‘an Inhabitant of Horton’ (Q/SO1/201). He married Jane.

He was buried on 18th September 1681 at Horton and Jane, ‘Widowe of Horton’, was buried on 2nd August 1704 at Horton but this could be a very, very elderly mother but highly unlikely!!


(?) THOMAS ISAAC I, Great VII Grandfather of Richard Barton

Son of Edward Isaac and Joane

Husband of Jane Wood

(?) Father of Thomas Isaac II

 

Also Father of Edward, Mary, Jane and Jane Pelmer

Thomas Isaac was born on 8th March 1661 and was baptised on 15th March 1661 at Horton. His parents were Edward and Joane Isaac of Horton. Thomas Isaac I married Jane Wood on 9th May 1689 at Horton and they had five children who were all baptised at Horton between 1690 and 1699. Mary died aged about three months and the elder Jane lived for about seventeen months.

Thomas Isaac I was a Yeoman of Hawkesbury. In 1727 he was described as a Yeoman of Marshfield and had probably retired there to be with his eldest son, Edward. His will was made on 20th February 1727. He was buried at Horton on 19th August 1729 and was described as ‘of Hawkesbury’. This will was proved on 16th October 1729. and his widow, Jane Isaac, was the executrix.

Jane, his widow, made her own will eight days later, on 24th October 1729, and she was then described as ‘of Hawkesbury’. She died in November 1729 and was buried at Horton on 5th November 1729. The will was proved on 12th November 1729 (stylo Anglia) and her daughter Jane was the executrix.

The Will of Thomas Isaac I:

‘In the name of God, Amen I Thomas Isaac of the Parish of Marshfield in the County of Gloucester Yeoman being aged and infirme in body but of sound mind (praises to God) do make and declare this my Last Will and Testament the manner and forme following.

Also Mother of Edward, Mary, Jane and Jane Pelmer

Jane Wood married Thomas Isaac I on 9th May 1689 at Horton and they had five children who were all baptised at Horton between 1690 and 1699. Mary died aged about three months and the elder Jane lived for only about seventeen months.

Thomas Isaac I was a Yeoman of Hawkesbury. In 1727 he was described as a Yeoman of Marshfield and had probably retired there to be with his eldest son, Edward. His will was made on 20th February 1727. He was buried at Horton on 19th August 1729 and was described as ‘of Hawkesbury’. This will was proved on 16th October 1729. and his widow, Jane Isaac, was the executrix.

Signed, Sealed and declared by the said Jane Isaac to be her last Will and Testament in the presence of James Harris, Mary Harris.’


The children of Thomas Isaac I and Jane were Great VII Aunts and Uncles:

(?) EDWARD ISAAC, Great VII Uncle

Edward Isaac was baptised on 13th December 1690 at Horton. He married Mary Palmer on 20th February 1725/6. They were both described as of Marshfield. Their parents, Thomas and Jane Isaac, were living at Marshfield in 1727 and a Palmer was a witness of Thomas Isaac’s will in 1727. Mary Isaac was a beneficiary of her mother-in-law’s will in 1729.


(?) THOMAS ISAAC II, Great VI Grandfather of Richard Barton

Thomas Isaac was baptised on 23rd September 1692 at Horton. See below….


MARY ISAAC, Infant Great VII Aunt of Richard Barton

Mary Isaac was baptised at Horton on 23rd June 1695 at Horton. She died or was buried on 8th September 1695 at Horton. She was described as ‘daughter of Thomas Isaac’.


JANE ISAAC, Infant Great VII Aunt of Richard Barton

Jane Isaac was baptised on 8th July 1696 at Horton and buried on 12th December 1697 at Horton.


JANE ISAAC, Great VII Aunt of Richard Barton

Jane Isaac was baptised on 20th August 1699 at Horton. She was the principal beneficiary and executrix of her mother’s estate in 1729. She may have married John Pelmer at Horton on 16th April 1730.


ANOTHER THEORY!

There is a second family of Isaacs in Horton who are descended from John Isaac and Jane Russell who were married on 29th July 1666 at Horton. Their son John who was baptised on 16th February 1667 at Horton married Sarah. It is claimed by some that John and Sarah Isaac are the parents of Thomas Isaac II (1692-1774), but I am not convinced by this argument. Bigland’s Memorial Inscriptions for Horton would suggest that Thomas was born in 1692 rather than 1694.

John and Sarah Isaac were the parents of two children called Thomas. The first was baptised on 24th July 1692 at Horton and was buried on 4th or 12th April 1693 and the second was baptised on 28th September 1694 at Horton. John Isaac’s will of 1730 only gives legacies to his own brothers and sisters and their children and there is no mention of a son called Thomas. I am convinced that all three of the children of John and Jane Isaac of Horton died in infancy and that the younger Thomas was buried on 8th August 1697 at Horton. On the other hand the will for Thomas Isaac of 1729 and that of his widow, Jane, of the same year, fit together and all of their beneficiaries can be accounted for. This couple are most likely the parents of Thomas Isaac II and it was he who was baptised on 23rd September 1692 at Horton.

 


THOMAS ISAAC II, Great VI Grandfather of Richard Barton

(?) Son of Thomas Isaac I and Jane (nee Wood)

Husband of Jane Hicks

Father of John Isaac I

 

Also Father of Ann Auldon and Martha Cooper

Thomas Isaac II was baptised on 23rd September 1692 at Horton. He was probably the second son of Thomas and Jane Isaac. His father was a Yeoman of Horton.

Thomas Isaac II married Jane Hicks at Horton on 2nd December 1721 at Horton and he was a beneficiary of his mother’s estate in 1729. Thomas and Jane had three children. Their son john and their daughter Martha both married into the Cooper Family of Hawkesbury.

Jane Isaacs died on 19th August 1772, aged eighty-three years, and she was buried at Horton. Bigland recorded the monumental inscription.

Jane may be a member of the extensive Wickwar Family of Hicks.

Thomas Isaac II made his will but the date is cut off my copy of the will. We know that he died on 27th March 1774, aged eighty-two-years, and that he was buried at Horton where Bigland, again, recorded a monumental inscription. The will was proved on 19th April 1774 at Gloucester.
