I descend from WHEELERs of Kent, England. George WHEELER married Sarah WINTER and they lived in Westerham Kent into the 1900's.
Sarah WINTER was one of the many children christened in Surrey to Harriet BRIDGLAND and William WINTER (mar. Dec. 25, 1820, Godstone, Surrey, England). Harriet's census entries give her birthplace as Godstone, and her birthdate around 1799.
A search of the IGI shows only one entry for Harriet BRIDGLAND born about 1799. It reads: "Harriet BRIDGELAND [sic], chr. 17 Aug. 1800, Horne, Surrey, England. Parents Thomas & Elizabeth BRIDGELAND" (source film # 1042203 chr. 1668-1854). Horne is a few miles from Godstone.
The parents are probably "Thomas BRIDGLAND mar. Elizabeth LOCK 25 Apr. 1798, Godstone, Surrey, England" (source film # 0991680 mar. 1768-1876).
Elizabeth appears to be the "Elizabeth LOCKE, b. 12 Oct. 1779, chr. 24 Oct. 1779, Limpsfield, Surrey, England. Parents William & Sarah LOCKE" (source film # 0097139 parish records 1539-1812).
Elizabeth's parents are probably "William LOCK mar. Sarah COOPERT, 04 Sep. 1775, Limpsfield, Surrey, England" (source film # 0097139 mar. 1540-1876).
These IGI entries are not yet confirmed.
