William DENYER (1673-1705)

and Jane POOLE (c1680-1743)


Jane Poole and her second husband, Richard Pearson, were my 6x Great Grandparents.  They married in 1709 and have their own page.  Jane first married William Denyer on 1 June 1697 in Bepton, Sussex.

William Denyer was baptised on 26 September 1673 in Woolbeding.  He was the son of 5 211 Robert Denyer (c1645-1684) and Elizabeth.  He died in 1705.

Jane Poole's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 4 March 1743 in Stedham, Sussex.  The burial register noted she was the wife of Richard Pearson.


William Denyer and Jane Poole had 4 known children:

  1. William Dennyor was baptised on 18 December 1698 in Woolbeding.

    William may have married Ann Tribe by licence on 21 November 1720 in Iping, Sussex.  However, their marriage licence, which was issued on 18 November 1720 by the Archdeaconry of Chichester, recorded that William was a tailor of Bramshott in Hampshire.  Sponsors of the licence were William himself and William Philips a husbandman of Rogate, Sussex.

  2. Jane Denyer was baptised on 18 January 1699/1700 in Woolbeding.

    Jane married William Fulljames on 29 May 1739 in Heyshott, Sussex.  He was then of Lavant.

    William and Jane had the following known children:

    1. Jane Fuljames was baptised on 4 December 1741 in Midhurst.  She was mentioned in the 1748 will of Richard Pearson as his grandaughter.

    2. Mary Fuljames was baptised on 27 June 1743 in Midhurst.

    3. Anne Fuljames was baptised on 2 January 1744 in Midhurst.

    4. William Fuljames was baptised on 31 July 1746 in Midhurst.

    5. William Fuljames was baptised on 13 February 1747 in Midhurst.

    6. Sarah Fuljames was baptised on 11 March 1749 in Midhurst.

  3. Robert Denyer was baptised on 10 March 1700/1 in Woolbeding.  He may have married Ann Austin in 1723.

  4. Thomas Denyer was baptised on 18 May 1702 in Woodbeding.  He was left a legacy of five shillings by his step father.




In addition to "my" Jane Poole, there were at least 2 others of similar age:

  1. Jane Pool married William Boone on 10 January 1692/3 in Felpham, Sussex.

  2. Jane Poole, spinster married Thomas Courtney a bachelor, on 23 February 1692/3 in Lurgashall, Sussex.  They were both then of Lurgashall.


The IGI doesn't record any possible baptisms for any of the Jane Poole's.


Could the following be related to Jane:

Elizabeth Poole married Stephen Allen on 2 March 1683/4 in Fernhurst, Sussex.

Benjamin Poole married Martha Marner on 29 April 1678 in Midhurst, Sussex.
