Look up 1851 Sussex census - John Bayley/Elizabeth
« on: Wednesday 10 November 04 20:52 GMT (UK) »
Could you please try to find John Bayley and his wife Elizabeth.  They raised a large family in Whatlington near Hastings, but just two of the children were still there in 1841.  I would calculate that John and Elizabeth would be in their sixties by 1851 (or dead of course!!) as they married around 1815.  Their youngest known child George would be 17 and next youngest William 20.   Daughter who might still be at home: Mary Ann 23.

Many thanks   Cheryl

Hi Cheryl

Have just looked on the 1851 for Whatlington, but non of the names you mention appear in the 1851 census - the only Bayley appearing is a James, aged 27, Wheelwright, lodging with the Pepper family at Vine Hall.

Have also looked on the 1841 census for Whatlington - but no one of that surname is listed in or around Whatlington.

Sorry to be so negative - can you give me any further information?

Just looked on the Sussex Marriage Index - this is the only John Bayley / Bailey marrying an Elizabeth around 1815

Extract from the Sussex Marriage Index:
Place: Mountfield, East Sussex,  Date:  8 Jan 1815:
Subject: John BAILEY, Whatlington
Spouse: Elizabeth RIGGLESFORD

Hope the above helps
