Could John Chennell born Warnham, and Eliza Linegar born Horton have been cousins?

Yes according to my Tree so far John Chennell, who worked at Windsor and seems to be from Warnham (B;1837/8), was married to Eliza Linegar from Horton. I haven't got any further down the line beyond Eliza Linegar either, as yet - no Hints anyway!

A burial at Ockley, 5 January 1837
John Chennell
age 32
abode Watton 

No, never trust ancestry!
That burial was 5 January 1838
Crikey!

Was the death registered on the last day of 1837?
CHENNELL, JOHN       
Age at Death (in years): 33 
GRO Reference: 1837  D Quarter in DORKING  Volume 04  Page 56

With that Watton abode, it could be that it was John married to Sarah who died, not the John married to Jane!
On the other hand, it might be neither!

Hi
I think it's time to start on the Linegar family! You may be able to tie them in with Sarah Bennett (who just may be the mother of your John Chennell!)
Complicated case!
John

It wasn't John Chennell married to Jane who died at the end of 1837
They had a daughter Jane baptized 2 June 1839 at Ockley
Abode Capel, father Labourer

Here is a widowed John with three children, including Jane, living Capel in 1851
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGK6-89R

Were they in Capel in 1841? Yet to see them.

So it is quite likely that it was Brian's ancestor John who lost his father just after he was born.

In Wotton, Surrey 1841 there is a 3 year old John Chennell  living with Edward Chennell 55 and Elizabeth Chennell 55 and Eliza 15 and Martha 13. They are all born in county except John and Edward. HO 107/1081/3/20 Pg6

Yes, that could be him in Wotton. With his grandparents. It would make sense.
One thing though, it's Hannah Chennell, 55, rather than Elizabeth.
Image, not the greatest, here

Baptism at Okewood, Surrey, 3 Feb 1805
John, the son of Edward and Hannah Chennell
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J33C-CTT

That would make a good match with age on death on the 1837/8 records.
Where is Sarah in 1841 and 1851? :-\

Yes the 1841 census image I've seen via Ancestry seems more distinct. This does seem to suggest that "my" John Chennell was adopted, though i did wonder how he got from his original family to his adopted one, but I guess in those days adoptees may well have stayed within the family (as suggested above), and i also suppose then they were not really registered as adopted in any way.

I can't blame the image just my brain. I've really no idea why I wrote Elizabeth!

So i've now got the Birth Certificate for John Chennel (one L ) registered 29 Dec 1837 at Warnham (Horsham). Father is John Chennel and mother's maiden name is Sarah Bennett. Sooooo, need to think about this again and see where it gets me..
