Peter AYLWIN (1758-1833)

and Mary ENTICKNAP (c1761-1840)

 

Peter Aylwin and Mary Enticknap may have been my 5x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by licence on 16 October 1781 in Treyford cum Didling, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was issued on 12 October 1781 by the Archdeaconry of Chichester, which recorded that he was a 24 year old farmer of Treyford and she was a 20 year old spinster who married with the consent of Thomas Dare.

Peter Aylwin was baptised on 6 August 1758 in Treyford cum Didling.  Unfortunately the names of his parents were not recorded in the baptism register, although he was the son of Thomas Aylwin (c1713-1777) and Sarah Poling (c1728-1808).  Peter died aged 75 years and was buried on 18 December 1833 in Treyford.  Peter was mentioned in his father's will.

Mary Enticknap's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might she have been baptised on 25 June 1761 in Lurgashall, Sussex, the daughter of Ann Enticknap?  She may have died aged 78 years in Treyford and have been buried on 26 March 1840 or she may have died aged 83 in Didling and have been buried on 21 January 1843.  Both burials were recorded in the Treyford cum Didling burial register.  I think it more likely she died in Treyford.

 

Peter Aylwin and Mary Entiknap had 10 known children:

  1. Mary Aylin was born about 1782.  She was mentioned in her father's will as Mary Souter and she was left a legacy of 70.
