and Elizabeth IZARD (1796-?)
Beard and Elizabeth Izard married by licence on 30
November 1820 in Brighton, Sussex. He was a bachelor and she a
spinster and they were both of Brighton. Their marriage licence was
issued on 28 November 1820 by the Archdeaconry of Lewes, which noted that he
was a bachelor and gent aged 27 years and upwards of Brighthelmstone, whilst
she was a spinster aged 24 years and upwards. Surety for their licence
was provided by William himself and George Beard a miller
of Chailey. (They were not my direct ancestors.)
Beard may have been born about 1793. He may have been the son
of Thomas Rootes Beard and Julien Day who
married on 10 October 1785 in Chailey, Sussex. He most probably died
in the third quarter of 1862 in the Worthing, Sussex registration district.
(Thomas may have been the son of George Beard and
Mary Rootes who married on 21 June 1755 in Chailey.)
Izzard was born on 13 May 1796 and baptised at St. Nicholas,
Brighton on 21 June 1796. She was the daughter of William
Izzard and Sarah Chandler, who had married on 8
February 1790 in Ditchling, Sussex.

and Elizabeth Izard had 5 known children:
Day Beard was baptised on 9 November 1821 at St. Nicholas,
Brighton. The baptism register described his father as a gent of
Ship Street. The death of a 66 year old William Day Beard
was registered in the fourth quarter of 1887 in the Norwich, Norfolk

Black Lion Street. In 1841 she was a 15 year old pupil in the Old

of 1846, at which time it would appear she was still single.

Brighton, at which time his father was a gent of German Place. A

and his death was registered in the fourth quarter of 1916 in the
