The Braziers of Rye
« on: Sunday 04 January 09 20:52 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I'm interested in learning more about the Braziers of Rye - they appear from what I can gather in the A2A database to have been reasonably well to do.
I am descended from Eliza Oyler, baptised in Winchelsea in 1806, the daughter of Thomas Oyler and Elizabeth Brazier.
These two seem to have enjoyed two weddings, one in Winchelsea (26 Sep 1790) and the second in his home parish of Hawkhurst (8 Oct 1790).

Elizabeth is I think the youngest daughter of James Brazier and Mary Bennett, being baptised 16 Dec 1766 at Rye.

Any other info relating to the family would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Had a look at the 1820 Sussex Poll and there is a William Brazier of Rye mentioned as a freeholder.

Thanks guys

This is all great stuff.

If you come across anything relating to the daughter Eliza Oyler and the father of her first illegitimate child (Samuel Dean) then that would be great also.

I think Thomas Oyler and Elizabeth (nee Brazier) both died when their children were young - the daughters, Eliza, Lucy and Celia end up spread around various people in Sussex, and there are all sorts of poor law letters mentioning them.

This thread caught my eye as my wife's maternal 2nd great grandfather was Henry Brazier (1802-1845) also from Rye. He was married to Mary Munn Furby (1808-1846) from Rye on 20/10/1832. They had two children, Henry (1838-1838) and Frederic (1843-1878). Frederic married an Ann Taylor but both died relatively young leaving 3 children who had to be left with relatives in Worcestershire. Henry was a wool-stapler and had a warehouse in the town. He was a local councillor and was asked to become mayor.  He refused due to corruption in the council which is another story!

I have appreciated the memorial records that have been provided as some of these where relevant to me. Henry and Mary have a memorial plaque in the Parish Church and I was once told that he/they are buried in the church.
