Edgar BOORMAN (1808-1879)

and Diana BAILEY (c1810-?)

 

Edgar Boorman and Diana Bailey married by banns on 26 October 1830 in Burwash, Sussex.  They were both then of Burwash.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster.  The witnesses were John Shoesmith and Lois Shoesmith.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  Edgar was a brother of my 3x Great Grandfather, Thomas Boorman (1810-1881).)

Edgar Boorman was born on 13 April 1808 and baptised on 15 May 1808 in Burwash.  He was the eldest son of Edward Boorman (1784-1858) and Charlotte King (1786-1859).  He died aged 71 years in the third quarter of 1879 in the Battle registration district.

Diana Bailey was born about 1811 in Heathfield, Sussex (as per the 1851 census).  I have not found her baptism there nor in the East Sussex Baptism Index.  She may have died aged 83 years and her death registered as Dianh Boorman in the first quarter of 1892 in the Hastings registration district.  However, when the 1881 census was recorded there was a 73 year old unmarried Dinah Boorman living at 18 Station Road, Hastings, who gave her place of birth as Goudhurst in Kent.

When the 1841 census was recorded, a 75 year old Mary Bailey was living with Edgar and Diana.  Might she have been Diana's mother?  A James Bailey married Mary Britt on 5 September 1791 in Ticehurst, Sussex, and Mary Britt was born in 1770.  But, Lois Shoesmith, a witness to Edgar and Diana's marriage, may have been baptised as Lois Baily on 20 February 1810 in the Heathfield non-conformist Chapel.  She was the daughter of William Baily and Edith.  Might Lois and Diana have been sisters or cousins?

The couple were living in Burwash when the births of their 3 eldest daughters were registered at the Shover's Green Chapel in Wadhurst.  In 1841 the family was living at Swing Toll Gate, Burwash.  By 1851 they were living at Flattenden, Wadhurst and Edgar was an agricultural labourer.  The couple were still at Flattenden when the 1861 census was recorded.

 

Edgar Boorman and Diana Bailey had 6 known children:

  1. Naomi Boorman was born on 26 September 1831 and her birth was registered at the Shover's Green Chapel in Wadhurst.  She buried on 11 July 1832 in Wadhurst.  The burial register records that Naomi Bourman was an infant.

  2. Mary Boorman was born on 1 June 1833 and her birth was registered at the Shover's Green Chapel in Wadhurst.  When the 1851 census was recorded she was a 17 year old house servant at Hammerden Farm House, Burwash, the home of 38 year old John White and his family.

  3. Emmela Boorman was born on 4 December 1835 and her birth was registered at the Shover's Green Chapel in Wadhurst.  Her name was recorded as Emily Borman in the 1851 census.

  4. Elizabeth Boorman was baptised on 30 December 1838 in Burwash and buried there on 20 June 1843.  She died aged 5 years.

  5. Edgar Boorman was born about 1842 in Burwash.  He was buried on 14 April 1903 in Wadhurst.

    Edgar married Rhoda Ticehurst before or about 1866.

    Rhoda was born in the third quarter of 1841 in Ashburnham, Sussex and was buried on 8 July 1903 in Wadhurst.  She was the daughter of Henry Ticehurst (c1816-?) and Mary.  When the 1851 census was recorded she was 10 years old and living with her parents at Punts Greene in Ashburnham and her father was then a wheelwright.

    In 1881 the family were living at Cock Mount in Wadhurst and Edgar was then a carpenter.  The couple were still living in Wadhurst when the 1901 census was recorded and he was then a farmer.

    Edgar and Rhoda had 3 known children:

    1. Emily Boorman was born about 1866 in Ashburnham, although her baptism has not been found in the Ashburnham baptism register.  In 1881 she was a 15 year old dressmaker living with her parents.

    2. Henry Edgar Boorman was born in the second quarter of 1872 in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.  He was an 8 year old scholar in 1881.  He was baptised as an adult on 17 May 1908 at the Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Wadhurst.  (Also on that day, Frank Boorman was baptised as an adult.  Frank was the son of Frederick Edward Boorman and Frances Barham.)

    Ann was baptised on 16 May 1852 in Ashburnham and was the daughter of William Pettit (1821-1893) and Caroline Clout (c1829-1875).

    At the time of the 1891 census the family were living at Egypt Farm in Warbleton and Edward was an agricultural labourer.  The family were living in Penhurst when the 1901 census was recorded and Edward was a gamekeeper.

      Annie was baptised on 14 March 1880 in Bodle Street, Sussex and was the daughter of Herbert Creasey (c1854-?) and Emily Hobday (c1856-?).
