George FAIRS (1859-1942)

and Ellen LELLIOTT (1860-1937)

 

George Fairs and Ellen Lelliott married by banns on 8 July 1882 in Steyning, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and coachman from Cuckfield and she was a spinster.  Their fathers were named as David Fairs and Peter Lelliott who were both labourers.  The witnesses to their marriage were P. Lelliott and M. Fairs.  (They were not my direct ancestors, although I share distant ancestors with the couple.)

George Fairs was born on 28 February 1858 (should this 1859?) and baptised on 27 March 1859 in Cowfold, Sussex.  He was the son of David Fairs (1826-?) and Ann Woolven (c1831-?).  George died on 23 October 1942 in Perth, Western Australia.  He emigrated to Australia on board the Orsova in 1912 along with the majority of his children.

Ellen Lelliott was baptised on 11 November 1860 in Henfield, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Peter Lelliott (1830-1896) and Mary Ann Woolgar (1833-?).  Ellen died on 3 January 1937 in Perth, Australia.

When the 1891 census was recorded the couple and 2 children were living in North Mundham, Sussex and George was then a 32 year old coachman and Ellen was 30.  George's brother David was living in the previous property on the census enumerators route.  In 1901 the couple and 7 children were living in a cottage in Nutley Street in the parish of Maresfield, Sussex.  George was then a 42 year old coachman and groom and Ellen was 40.
