Challis Family Sonning
« on: Tuesday 06 December 05 16:31 GMT (UK) »
Hi, 

Does anyone know of a family named CHALLIS from Sonning around the 1820's ?

James Challis from Compton 1801. Wife Sarah Betteridge born Sonning. Children Ann b.1824 . James, Harriet, John and Mary all born Sonning. 

They moved to Compton and had more children around the 1830's

Any help with dates and places would be great.

Thanks

Irene,

Here they are from 1851, living in Compton:

James, Head, 50, Agricultiral Labourer, b Compton
Sarah, Wife, 50, Agricultural Labourer , Sonning
Mary, Daur, 22, Agricultural Labourer, Sonning
Harriot, Daur, 20, Agricultural Labourer, Sonning
Geo, Son, 12, Agricultural Labourer, Compton
Alfred, Son, 9, Scholar, Compton

I'll have a look at the 1841 images if I get a chance later tonight.

Do you want later information as well ?

Regards
Harry

Hi Harry,

Thank you so much for those names.   :)  Very helpful to have some dates and places. 

I'd love to know whats on the 1841 images too please.

Irene,

They were easier to find than I thought :

1841 Compton Pava

Name, Age, Occupation

James, 40, Ag Lab
Sarah, 40
Mary, 13
Harriot, 11
James, 10
William, 8
George, 4
Alfred, 1 week

There are other CHALLIS families in the village:

William, 65, Ag Lab
Fanny, 65
Harriot, 10

Fanny is not born in County

next door is

Fendiando (male), 65, Ag Lab (I think that is the firstname)

William, 35, Ag Lab
Maria, 35
Mary, 10
Rachel, 10
Ambrose, 9
Martha, 8
Eliza, 7
Thomas, 6
Henry, 1
Isaac, 6 weeks
Maria, 5

All born in county unless otherwise shown.
Hope this helps - have fun

Harry

Very helpful Harry, thank you. 

I'll be adding to my Family Tree  at last.  That has filled in some of the gaps.

Hi

Mary Challis b 1827 was my G.grandmother She moved to Compton when she married.  I would be interested in any info you might have. I may be able to help you with info too.

Mary's family seem to have moved between Lambourne Sonning and Compton.  She had many siblings and they are scattered, mostly in the Berkshire area. 

Regards

James Challis was son of William and Francis and christened Compton, one of 10.
There is a double Woodage connection with this Challis family (Mary and James), and a link to Butlers of Goring.   I haven't followed all the families. Can help if you send me a PM.
