Thomas Doick and Hannah Foster married by banns on 5 June 1823 in Pulborough, Sussex.  The witnesses to their marriage were Mary Doick and William Barnard.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

      I have copied the following from Ancestry.co.uk:

      "The picture shows no.64 below Pulborough Bridge in 1898 with Bargemaster Henry Doick and his sons Percy and Tom.  In the space of seven years (1895-1901) he made 521 voyages up and down the Arun, carrying 17,096 tons of cargo between Littlehampton and Pullborough.  His average load was 33 tons, the maximum 38. The principal consignments were chalk, coal, culm, gravel and sand, but from time to time Doick carried ballast for Littlehampton brigs, steam coal for Arundel, bolts of reeds and osiers for Pepper and Son at Houghton, gas coal to Greatham and flints for the Duke of Norfolk at Timberley and for the Rector of Pulborough.  Additional earnings arose from pile driving, and usually once or twice a year no.64 was hired out to Mr.Slaughter of York House School, Brighton, for barge parties to the Black Rabbit and picnics in South Woods.  Doick delivered a barge load of coal to Greatham Wharf on 19th April 1902.  It was to be his last. Six months later he died at the age of 55years."
