George Denyer was baptised on 24 February 1831 in Woolbeding, Sussex.  He was the son of Robert Denyer (1795-1871) and Charlotte Boxall (1794-1867).  In 1841 he was 10 years.  He was a 19 year old agricultural labourer in 1851 living at home with his parents.

Martha Wingham was baptised on 25 December 1823 in Heyshott, Sussex.  She was the daughter of John Wingham (1798-1839) and Martha Marshall (1798-?).  Her mother remarried in 1853 to Richard Curtis.  Martha and died aged 43 years (as per the GRO index) and her death was registered in the first quarter of 1870 in the Midhurst registration district.  When the 1851 census was recorded, Martha was an unmarried 26 year old general servant and living with her 3 children in the Easebourne workhouse.  She then gave her place of birth as Cocking.
