I've been trying to trace the origins of Samuel Shipp who married Peachey Ann Morris in Chichester in May 1816. I just cannot find evidence of a birth, nor a death! Peachey remarries in 1832 in Portsea, and Samuel is down as deceased on his children's marriage certs.
He's not present on the Chichester 1815 rent books, and his marriage details in 1816 have him as being of the parish of St Peter the Great. Neither him nor Peachey are identified as Minors on the marriage details.
Several people have him on their trees and the Samuel Shipp of Much Hadham, but I can't find any evidence that they were the same person at all.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
