John BAYTUP (1782-1858)

and Sarah STOFFEL (1785-1872)


John Batcup and Sarah Stoffold married by banns on 15 August 1803 in Twineham, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor of Bolney, Sussex and she a spinster of Twineham.  The witnesses to their marriage were Richard Paine and Ann Attre.  (They were my not direct ancestors.)

John Baytup was baptised on 20 October 1782 in Cowfold, Sussex.  He was the son of John Baytup (c1753-1837) and Mary Clark (c1761-1830).  He died aged 79 years (as per a transcript of the burial register) and was buried on 10 November 1858 in Bolney.  It was noted in the burial register that he was John Baytup, senior.

Sarah Stoffel was baptised on 17 July 1785 in Bolney.  She was the daughter of John Stoffell (c1761-1821) and Mary Wood.  She died aged 89 years and was buried on 28 January 1872 in Bolney.

At the time of the 1841 census the couple and 3 children were living in Bolney at what looks like Duntons or Demtons.  John and Sarah were both said to be 55 years old and he was an agricultural labourer.

When the 1851 census was recorded the couple and 2 of their children were living at Stable Houses, Bolney.  John was then a 69 year old agricultural labourer and gave his place of birth as Cowfold.  Sarah was 67 and she said she was born in Bolney.

In 1861, Sarah was an 80 year old widow living in what looks like Buneton Lane, Bolney.  Also with her on census night was her 47 year old son.

Sarah was still the head of her household in 1871 and she was then said to be an 89 year old widow.  With her on census night was her eldest daughter.  They were then living in Bolney Street, next door to the family of John Scutt.


John Baytup and Sarah Stoffel may have had the following children:

  1. Elizabeth Baytup was baptised on 8 September 1805 in Bolney.

    Elizabeth married Henry King on 17 October 1826 in Hurstpierpoint, Sussex.

    When the 1871 census was recorded, Elizabeth was a 62 year old widow living with her mother in Bolney.

  2. John Baytup may have been part of this family.  He was born about 1808 in Bolney.  He married Emma Rowland in 1833.  (They have their own page.)

  3. Stephen Baytup was baptised on 28 April 1811 in Bolney.  He died aged 10 years and was buried on 12 May 1821 in Bolney.

  4. James Baytup was baptised on 5 June 1814 in Bolney.  He was living with his parents in 1841 and he was then a 25 year old agricultural labourer.  In 1851 he was an unmarried 37 agricultural labourer living at home with his parents.  The 1861 census would seem to have recorded him as unmarried 47 year old Robert Baitup, and his occupation was not noted.

  5. Edmund Baytup was baptised on 10 August 1817 in Bolney.  He was a 24 year old agricultural labourer in 1841 and living with his parents.

  6. Harriet Baytup was baptised on 12 November 1820 in Bolney.  In the 1841 census her name seems to have been recorded as Eliza Baytup and she was then 20 years.

    Eliza married William Charles Wallis by licence on 18 May 1844 in Bolney.  She was then a spinster and he a widower and inn keeper.  Their fathers were named as John Baytup a labourer and Thomas Wallis a carpenter.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Harris Picknell and Sarah Baytup.

  7. Sarah Baytup was baptised on 17 August 1823 in Bolney.

  8. Mary Ann Baytup was baptised on 18 June 1826 in Bolney.  In 1851 she was an unmarried 24 year old living with her parents.

    Mary Ann married Crouch Packham by banns on 4 July 1855 in Bolney.  She was then a spinster and he was a bachelor and shopkeeper from Cuckfield.  Their fathers were named as John Baytup a labourer and Michael Packham a shopkeeper.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Baytup and Emma Baytup.
