William ALLFREY (1845-1907)

and Charlotte Sarah NASH (1840-1918)

 

William Allfrey and Charlotte Sarah Nash married on 3 October 1864 at St. Nicholas parish church in Brighton, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

William Allfrey was born on 5 July 1845 in Clayton, Sussex.  He was the son of William Allfrey (c1821-1892) and Audrey Vincent (c1817-1848).  He died on 25 September 1907 in Albourne, Sussex.  At the time of the 1851 census he was a 5 year old scholar living in the home of his paternal grandparents.  In 1861 he was a 15 year old bricklayer's labourer, living with his father and step mother.  Like his father he was a builder and had a house, Oakmere, built at Albourne where he and his wife lived until their deaths.

Charlotte Sarah Nash was born on 3 November 1840 in Capel, Surrey.  She was the daughter of William Nash (1803-?) and Ann Penfold (c1806-?).  Charlotte died on 23 June 1918 in Albourne.  When the 1841 census was recorded she was 7 months old and living with her parents and elder siblings in Capel village.  In 1851 she was a 10 year old scholar living with her parents in Capel Street.  In 1861 she was probably a 20 year old domestic servant in the home of George Jenings a stock broker, at 1 Colchester Villas in the St. Paul's district of Deptford, Kent.

When the 1871 census was recorded the family were living in 2 Prospect Cottage in Clayton.  William was then a bricklayer and plasterer and what looks like an innkeeper, but the writing is difficult to read.  Also with them on census night were 4 visitors, 39 year old Jane Bates, Egbert Bates aged 8, Harriette Bates aged 3 and 11 month old Archibald Bates.

In 1881 the family were living at 36 Russell Street, Brighton and William was a bricklayer.  They also had 2 lodgers living with them in 1881, 30 year old widow Mary Norton and her 1 year old daughter Edith Norton.

By 1891 the family had moved to Manor Farm in Poynings, Sussex and William was a builder.  Also with them were their 2 year old granddaughter  Emily E. C. Hodges and 23 year old visitor, Edith M. Burton.

In 1901 the family were living at Oakmere in Albourne and William was a house builder.  They also had 4 grandchildren in their household in 1901, namely, 13 year old Anne E. Eves, 3 year old Victor A. Allfrey, 3 year old Dorothy F. C. Leith and 1 year old Winifred C. S. Leith.

 

William Allfrey and Charlotte Sarah Nash had 11 known children:

  1. Anne Martha Allfrey, known as Annie, was born on 17 August 1865 at Prospect Cottages, Clayton, Burgess Hill, Sussex.  She died on 6 May 1929 at 250 Elm Grove, Brighton, although her death certificate records that her residence was 1 Natal Road.  Her cause of death was myocardial degeneration and her husband reported the death, and he was also of 1 Natal Road.  In 1871 she was 5 years old.  The 1881 census records that she was 15 years old.

    Annie married Herbert Francis Eves on 27 December 1885 at St. Paul's in Brighton.
