Thomas Veness 1781 – 1840


According to my records Thomas married Mary Davis and she bore him 12 children. He seems to have had two sons named James one born 1805 – 1883, the other born 1817-1884. My dilemma is which one is the true son as both seem to be married to the same woman Mary Cramp. Can anyone help?

    It refers to James Veness, born 1805, Baptised on 11 March 1806 at Battle, the 4th son of Thomas & Mary nee Davis. He married Mary Cramp on 8 July 1835 at Battle. It’s clear he had 6 children, Thomas being the eldest after his father. Census supports the evidence.
