The child of John Bennett (a farm labourer) and Mary Measday, Sarah Bennett, the great-great-grandmother of Nigel Horne, was born in Wingham, Kent, England c. 18321,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, was baptised there on 24 Aug 1832 and also married Troward Cowell (an agricultural labourer with whom she had 2 children: John and Troward) at St Mary the Virgin Church on 13 May 185610.
During her life, she was living in Preston, Kent, England in 1841; at her birthplace in 1851; in Stodmarsh, Kent in 1861; at Stodmarsh Street, Stodmarsh, Kent on 7 Apr 1861; at Nethergone, Chislet, Kent in 1871 and on 2 Apr 1871; at Island Road, Westbere, Kent on 3 Apr 1881; in Upstreet, Kent on 5 Apr 1891 and on 31 Mar 1901; and at Woodchurch Farm, Acol, Kent on 2 Apr 1911.
She died on 12 Feb 1919 at Union Workhouse, Mill Lane, Eastry, Kent9 (senile decay Death certificate says window of John Cowell, but I don't believe that to be correct. Perhaps that was Troward's middle name?) and was buried at St Nicholas Church, Ash, Kent on 18 Feb 1919.
