I have a feeling that Philip's parents might have been named William and Sarah, but I can't remember where I got that idea from!!   ::)

I think it was 1765?

I'm not aware of the images being available online, but I have read recently that some Sussex PR images are viewable if you have an account with FamilySeach (don't take that as totally correct without checking first.)

Oops!  :o

Yes, I got that completely wrong! I should have said that I originally thought he was born in 1765, but it looks as though he was actually born in 1745 according to his marriage to Mary Moon found by CB53. No birth or baptism records have been found.

Perhaps he was born elsewhere and moved to Arlington as a child or young man  :-\

Hi, I am still trying to find the birth of Philip Elen, who died in Arlington, Sussex in 1811, but seem to have hit a brick wall since the last post two and a half years ago, so thought I'd come back and see if anyone had any ideas  :)

To summarise what was found:

Philip was a bachelor (of Arlington) aged 28 when he married Mary Moon (of Isfield) on 22 Jun 1773 in Isfield, Sussex.

Mary died in 1784 and despite the marriage lasting 11 years,  there do not appear to be any children from this marriage.

Philip then married Mary Pace in Arlington on 29 Oct 1785. They had six children, all born in Arlington; Philip (1786 - 1862), Mary Ann (1789 - 1839), John (1791 - 1862), Richard (1792 - 1871), David Leonard (1795 - 1844) and Leonard William (1800 - 1858).

If anyone could shed some light on Philip's origins I would be most grateful.

Thank you in anticipation :)
