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

Wonder if John was a widower when he married Eliza Linegar??

Marriage of a John Chennell bachelor aged 24 (aged 23 on 1861 census) 3rd August 1861 parish of Wotton occupation "gardener" , abode Daking?, father John Chennell occ Labourer
to
Mary Ann Stilwell, spinster, servant, abode Wotton father John Stilwell occ labourer.

Witnesses John & Jane Stilwell.

John

edit 14.12pm there is a Chennell/Stilwell birth in 1864 so not your John but it might narrow down parentage of other John's born c1837/8

It all got too complicated for me yesterday, so I gave up ;D
There was more than one John baptized at Ockley
There was also a John Chennel bap 2 July 1837
Parents John and Jane
Abode Capel
father Labourer

A burial at Ockley, 5 January 1837
John Chennell
age 32
abode Watton 
Could he have been a son of Edward and Hannah? :-\

In the later census there is a John Chennell born Capel circa 1838, living in Dorking, and married to Mary Ann.

Hello all, and many thanks for all the potential leads, and will look at these. However was looking back to John Chennell's origins and was wondering how he, as a 3 year old, came to be an apparent son of what were 55 years olds (Edward & Hannah), as this would seem pretty unlikely, so started wondering if he had been adopted. So if he were originally from Warnham, it's possible that his mother died when he was very young, and indeed there is a 19 year old Emma Chennell buried in Warnham in 1839 who could possibly!! be his original mother. Not sure about the father!? Maybe a stretch but, maybe her maiden name could have been Bennett?.

I assume you don't have his marriage certificate as that should name his father then you would know which baptisms/birth registrations you should be considering.
