Charles BATCHELOR (1765-1848)

and Abigail WELLER (c1768-1843)

 

Charles Batchelor and Abigail Weller married by banns on 25 June 1786 at the parish church of St. Nicholas in Brighton, Sussex.  They were both then of Brighton.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  Charles was the elder brother of Ann Batchelor, who may have been my 5x Great Grandmother.)

Charles Batchelour was baptised on 24 July 1765 in Angmering, Sussex.  He was the son of John Batchelor and Elizabeth Streeter (1739-?).  He died aged 85 years on 12 February 1848 in the Workhouse at Thakeham, Sussex and was buried on 15 February 1848 in Storrington, Sussex.  He was a tailor.

Abigail died aged 75 years on 15 December 1843 in Cootham and was buried on 21 December 1843 Storrington, Sussex.  Therefore, she was born about 1768.  She was also know as Abbey Batchelor.  She may have been baptised on 7 August 1768 in Barcombe, Sussex and have been the daughter of John Weller and Ann Taylor.  But, another Abigail Weller married John Nutley on 26 April 1790 in Rottingdean, Sussex.  She was a spinster and he a bachelor and they were both of Rottingdean.  That Abigail died aged 63 in February 1830, therefore, she was born about 1766/7.

When the 1841 census was recorded, Charles and Abigail were living in Cootham, within the parish of Storrington.  His occupation was then recorded as tailor.

 

Charles Batchelor and Abigail Weller had 8 to 10 known children:

  1. William Batchelor was baptised on 23 September 1787 in Storrington.

  2. Charles Batchelor was baptised on 27 November 1789 in Storrington.

  3. Gainey Batchelor was baptised on 13 February 1792 in Storrington.  As Gaynor Bachelor did she marry William Standon by banns on 10 June 1821 in Brighton?  She was a spinster and he a bachelor and they were both of Brighton.

  4. Rhoda Batchelor may have been part of this family.  She died aged 18 years and was buried on 4 February 1812 in Storrington.

  5. Elizabeth Batchelor was baptised on 28 May 1798 in Storrington.

  6. John Batchelor was baptised on 26 October 1800 in Storrington.  He died in the Workhouse in East Preston between April and June 1881.

    John married Hannah Harwood on 20 October 1821 in Wiggonholt cum Greatham, Sussex.  (Another John Batchelor married Hannah Smart on 17 September 1820 in Petworth.  The 1851 census records that that John was 57 years old and Hannah 48 and they were both born in Petworth.)

    Hannah was baptised on 4 March 1804 in Pulborough and was the daughter of Thomas Harwood (1769-?) and Hannah Miriam (1779-?).  She died aged 44 years died on 21 November 1847 in Cootham and was buried on 28 November 1847 in Storrington.

    At the time of the 1841 census the couple and their 12 year old son, Charles, were living in Cootham and John was an agricultural labourer.  By 1851 John had moved to 8 New Town in Broadwater, Sussex.  He was then an unmarried 51 year agricultural labourer and the head of the household.  Also with him on census night was a 21 year old friend, Luke Leggate from Bury in Lancashire.  The 1861 census records that 61 year old widower John, was a boarder in the home of 60 year married Harriet Leggatt, at 8 New Town.  In 1871, 70 year old John was still lodging with Harriet, but this time they were at 15 Clifton Road in Broadwater.  Harriet was still said to be married.  Her husband, James aged 76 was then living next door at 17 Clifton Road with his married daughter Jane Smith and her husband William Smith and their 4 children.  In 1881 John was said to be a 79 year widower and jobbing labourer.  He was then an inmate at the East Preston Workhouse.

    John and Hannah had 3 known children:

    1. Mary Ann Batchelor was baptised on 21 April 1822 in Storrington, at which time her father was a labourer.  She died aged 10 months and was buried on 2 February 1823 in Storrington.  The burial register records that she was from Clay Lane.

    2. Hannah Bachelor was baptised on 9 January 1824 in Storrington, at which time her father was a labourer.

      As Harriet Batchelor she married John Sergent by banns on 27 December 1842 in Storrington.  He was then a minor and labourer from Horsham.  She was also a minor.  Their fathers were named as R. Sergent and John Batchelor who were both labourers.  John Battcock was a witness to their marriage.

      John was born about 1822 in West Chiltington.  He was most probably the son of Richard Sargent and Sarah Terrey.

      When the 1851 census was recorded the couple and 4 children were living in Springfield Road, Horsham.  John was then a 29 year old Maltster's labourer.  Also with them on census night was 25 year old Charles Batchelor.  (I have not been able to find the family in the 1861 census.)

      John and Harriet had the following known children:

      1. Richard Sargent was baptised on 5 March 1843 in Horsham, at which time his father was a maltster.  He was an 8 year old scholar in 1851.

      2. George Sargent was baptised on 13 April 1845 in Horsham, at which time his father was a maltster.  He died aged 3 years and was buried on 19 November 1848 in Horsham.

      6. John Sargent was baptised on 1 February 1852 in Horsham, at which time his father was a maltster.

    3. Charles Batchelor was baptised on 12 November 1826 in Storrington, at which time his father was a labourer from Cootham.  He was said to be 12 years old in 1841.  The 1851 census records that he was an unmarried 25 year old visitor in the home of John Sargant and his wife Harriett.

      Charles married Charlotte Locke on 5 September 1858 in Broadwater.

      Charlotte was born about 1814 in Clapham, Sussex and was the daughter of Thomas Locke and possibly Sarah Beaty.

      When the 1861 census was recorded the couple were living at 14 New Town in Broadwater.  Charles was then a 36 year jobbing gardener.  Charlotte was a 47 year old stay maker.  Also with them was unmarried 37 year old brother-in-law, George Locke

  7. Emery Batchelor was baptised on 6 March 1802 in Storrington.  He died aged 67 years and was buried on 10 October 1868 in Storrington.

    Emery married twice, firstly to Harriett Grevatt by banns on 13 May 1822 in Petworth.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster from Easebourne, Sussex.  The witnesses to their marriage were Henry Ford and John Shotter.  As a widower and labourer, Emery married Elizabeth White, widow, on 17 October 1863 in Storrington.  Their fathers were named as Charles Emery (as per a transcripton of the marriage register) a tailor and Edward Graves a labourer.  The witnesses to their marriage were P. Souter and Rhoda Lasseter.

    Harriet was born about 1796.  According the 1851 and 1861 census she was born in Storrington, but there doesn't appear to have been a baptism recorded there for her.  Might she have been baptised on 29 July 1797 in Lurgashall, Sussex, the daughter of Ann Gravet?  She died aged 65 years and was buried on 16 April 1861 in Storrington.

    In 1841 the couple and 2 children were living in Cootham and Emery was an agricultural labourer.  They were still in Cootham in 1851, along with their son Joseph.  In 1861 the pair were living in ?able House in Storrington.

    Elizabeth was baptised on 30 January 1802 in Findon, Sussex and was the daughter of Edward Graves and Elizabeth Perry.  She died aged 89 years and was buried on 3 March 1891 in Storrington.  Before her first marriage she had an illegitimate daughter, Catherine Churchel Graves who was baptised on 12 January 1823 in Storrington.  Elizabeth married Thomas White by banns on 25 June 1825 in Broadwater.  They were both then of Broadwater.

      Rhoda married John Lasseter by banns on 30 November 1847 in Storrington.  He was then a bachelor and labourer, whilst she was a spinster.  Their fathers were named as George Lasseter and Emery Bachelor who were both labourers.  The witnesses to their marriage were Phillis Lasseter and John Battcock.

      John was baptised on 1 October 1820 in Storrington and was the son of George Lasseter (c1778-1857) and Charlotte Cole (c1789-1873).  He died aged 83 years and his death was registered in the first quarter of 1904 in the Thakeham registration district.

      In 1851 the couple and 3 children were living in Cootham.  The 1861 census records that the couple and 6 children were living in Clay Lane, Storrington.  John was then a 40 year old agricultural labourer and Rhoda was 36.  When the 1871 census was recorded the family were living at Clay Lane Toll Gate and John was a 50 year old labourer.  In 1881 the couple and their youngest son were living at Late Toll Gate House in Clay Lane and John was a farm labourer.  The property was known as Old Toll Gate House, Clay Lane when the 1891 census was recorded and the couple were living there together in 3 rooms.  By 1901 the couple had moved to West Lodges in Parham where they were living in 4 rooms.  John was then an 80 year old pensioner of the Parham Estate.
