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 18411; at her birthplace in 18512; at Stodmarsh Street, Stodmarsh, Kent on 7 Apr 186115; at Nethergone, Chislet, Kent in 18714 and on 2 Apr 187111; at Island Road, Westbere, Kent on 3 Apr 18815; in Upstreet, Kent on 5 Apr 18916 and on 31 Mar 19017; and at Woodchurch Farm, Acol, Kent on 2 Apr 191112.
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.
