Philip ALFREY (1754-1835)

and Mary BOTTING (c1753-1833)

 

St. Andrew's, Nuthurst, Sussex - from:  http://www.copsalehall.co.uk/Philip Alfrey and Mary Botting were my 6x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by banns on 23 September 1776 at the parish church of St. Andrew's in Nuthurst, Sussex.  Philip was then of Henfield, Sussex and signed his name.  Mary was of Nuthurst and made her X mark.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Botting (marked) and William Botting (signed).  The banns were published in Henfield on 18 and 25 August and 1 September 1776.

Philip Alfry was born on 17 March 1754 and baptised on 29 March 1754 in Henfield.  He was the eldest child and son of John Alfrey (1727-1814) and Mary (c1724-1813).  He died aged 82 years and was buried on 19 November 1835 in Henfield.

Mary Botting's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She died aged 79 years and was buried on 10 November 1833 in Henfield, as the wife of Philip Alfree.  Therefore, she may have been born between November 1753 and November 1754, and there were 2 possible baptisms:

23 November 1753 in Henfield, the daughter of John Botting and Elizabeth Elliot.  This Mary married Henry Haybittle in 1776.  (Many thanks to Norma Podesta for transcribing Botting wills which identified this was not the Mary who married Philip.)

13 January 1754 in Cowfold, Sussex, the daughter of Edward Botting (c1730-1755) and Mary Baker

There was also a James Botting and his wife Sarah Botten who had children baptised in Nuthurst in 1740, 1742, 1745, 1754 (a son in March) and 1757.  They were the only couple having children baptised in the parish at that time, and as their son was baptised in March 1754 I think that rules them out as being Mary's parents, but I could be wrong.

On 10 July 1793 a removal order was issued to remove Philip, wife Mary and children, James aged 9, Philip aged 6, Mary aged 4 and 18 month old Sarah, from Steyning to Henfield.

 

Philip Alfrey and Mary Botting had 10 known children:

  1. Ann Alfrey, my 5x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 21 February 1777 in Henfield, Sussex.  She married 5 75 James Streeter in 1797.  (They have their own page.)

  3. James Alfrey was baptised on 5 July 1783 in Henfield.  He may have married twice.  Firstly to Susanna Miles in 1806 and/or Ann Harries in 1810.  (They have their own page.)

  6. Fanny Alfrey was baptised on 13 June 1790 in Slaugham.  She probably died young.
