Rachel Mead

Female, b. 8 April 1808, d. before 1818
     Rachel Mead, daughter of Robert Mead and Susanna Mickelburgh, was born on 8 April 1808 and was baptized with her twin brother on 1 May 1808 at The Independent Meeting House, Billericay, Essex.1 She probably died before 1818.2


  1. [S1] Microfilm of the Dissenters Register of The Protestant Independant Congregation of Billericay, Essex, 1778-1837, content: Baptisms and Burials, (Public Record Office (PRO), Kew, Surrey, England. Reference: RG4 1499). p. 48. “ ... Rachel daughter of Robert and Susannah Mead born Apr 8 1808 ... ”. [ESSNPR].
  2. [S3] Will of Robert Mead, farmer of Great Burstead Grange, dated 22 January 1818, proved 22 September 1819 in the Commissary Court of the Bishop of London. (Essex County Record Office, Wharf Road, Chelmsford, Essex, England. Reference: D/ABW 122/2/63). [WIL0012/DOC0005].
    Rachel was not mentioned in her father Robert's will of 1818 so it is almost certain that she died before this date.
