Henry BURCHELL (1831-1891)

and Louisa PIPER (1825-1898)

 

Henry Burchell and Louisa Piper married on 5 June 1852 in Wisborough Green, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Henry Burchell was baptised on 20 February 1831 in Billingshurst, Sussex.  He was the son of Henry Burchell (1806-1875) and Mary Ann Scutt (1809-1895).  A transcript of the Billingshurst parish register notes that he was the son of Edward and Mary Ann, but I think his father's name was wrongly recorded.  His father was then a labourer.  When the 1841 census was recorded he was 10 years and living with his parents, Henry and Mary Ann.  He died aged 60 years at North Heath in Horsham and was buried on 16 September 1891 in Horsham.

Another Henry Burchell was baptised on 14 March 1830 in Wisborough Green, the son of Edward Burchell and Esther Overington.  And yet another Henry Burchell was baptised on 18 March 1832 in Billingshurst, the son of William Burchell and Lucy Hayler.

Louisa Piper was baptised on 19 June 1825 in Wisborough Green, Sussex.  She was the daughter of William Piper and Emma Barnes.  She died aged 73 years in Fittleworth, Sussex and was buried on 15 August 1898 in Horsham.

The 1861 census records that Henry was a 30 year old agricultural labourer and Louisa was 35.  They were then living in Billingshurst village along with their 4 children.  In 1871 the couple and their 8 children were living in Billingshurst.  Henry was then said to be a 40 year old drillman and Louisa, 48.  By 1881 the family had moved to Pond Tail Lane in Horsham.  Henry was a 50 year old general labourer and Louisa was 55.  Also with them were 3 of their children.  I have not found Henry and Louisa in the 1891 census.
