James ALFREY (1783-?)

and Susanna MILES (?-?)

and Ann HARRIS (c1786-?)

 

James Allfrey may have married twice.  Firstly, and possibly, to Susanna Miles on 21 September 1806 at St. Nicholas, Brighton, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and signed his name.  She was a spinster and made her X mark.  They were both of Brighton.  The witnesses were James Streeter, Ph Littlefield and Will Breen, who all signed their names  (James Streeter may have been his brother-in-law).  James Alfrey may then, or instead of, have married Ann Harris on 7 May 1810 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  But he was said to be a bachelor, again.  Ann was a spinster and made her X mark.  James also made his X mark, but had signed at the 1806 marriage.  The witnesses to the 1810 marriage were Mary Taylor and John Guilford.    (James and wives were not my direct ancestors.  James was the brother of my 5x great grandmother, Ann Alfrey.)

James Alfrey was baptised on 5 July 1783 in Henfield, Sussex.  He was the second son and third child of Philip Alfrey (1754-1835) and Mary Botting (c1753-1833).  He was a butcher of Church Street, Brighton, from at least 1814.
