Marriage of Jonathan Tarrant to Rachel HUSSEY 13 Oct 1770 at Highworth, Wiltshire; by Licence; Jonathan "Out of Wiltshire" (ref Ancestry Wiltshire England Marriages). The Marriage Bond dated 12 Oct 1770 lists Jonathan Tarrant, place Faringdon, ocupation "Tailer", parish Faringdon, Berkshire; Rachel Hussey, of parish of Highworth, Wiltshire; Bondsman Charles Haman, Blacksmith, Highworth; Jurisdiction The Dean of Sarum in Wiltshire, Berkshire, Dorset and Uffculme, Devon (ref fmp Sarum Marriage Licence Bonds). Rachel was born c1753 (see gravestone).

Rachel died 26 Dec 1820, age 67, see below. Burial of Rachel Tarrant 31 Dec 1820 at All Saints, Faringdon, Berkshire, age 67 (ref fmp Berkshire Burial Index).
Jonathan Tarrant buried 20 Dec 1826 at All Saints, Faringdon, age 77, born c1749, residence Faringdon Berkshire (ref fmp, Berkshire Burial Index).
According to a reference on the web (from private source 2, 2017) the gravestone survives in Faringdon Churchyard with the following inscription:
         “Sacred to the memory of Rachel the wife of Jonathan Tarrant who died Dec 26th 1820 age 67 years. Faithful and Just. Humble and sincere. Here lies a virtuous wife, a mother dear. Thro many a day of arduous duties tried. She lived most useful and resigned she died. This duterous tribute to her name with tears in justice to her worth, her children rears. Also Jonathan Tarrant who died Dec 15th 1826 aged 77 years.”

This is presumably the man named as Jonathan Tarry in brother Michael Tarry's Will.
British Newspapers and fmp checked for both.

SOME NOTES ON THE CRAPPER FAMILY
The following note is in regard to the birth of William Tarrant and Ann Evans' son Josiah. It includes information about Elizabeth and Miriam Crapper (now presumed to be William Tarrant's maternal aunts) and confirmation that Ann Evans was daughter of Joseph and Hannah Evans.

"Josiah the Son of William Tarrant of Oxford in the Parish of Saint Aldate in the City of Oxford and of Ann his wife, who was the daughter of Joseph and Hannah Evans was born at Oxford on the twenty ninth day of October in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eighteen, at whose birth were present Elizabeth Crapper and Miriam Crapper both of Oxford and was also solemly baptized with water, in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, on the sixth day of December in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and eighteen at The Wesleyan Chapel Oxford by Edward B Lloyd. Registered this ninth day of January in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and nineteen by me Thomas Blanshard Registrar." (ref Ancestry, England & Wales, Non-Conformist and Non-Parochial Registers, Wesleyan Metropolitan Registry, Paternoster Row)

In addition, on a parchment certificate in Wesleyan Methodist Metropolitan Registry, very similar words to those above appear, but this was probably the original document, as it includes the address "New Inn Lane, Oxford" for Elizabeth and Miriam Crapper.
