and Sarah ANSELL (1775-1859)
James Goble and Sarah Ancell married by banns
on 4 August 1793 in West Dean, Sussex. The witnesses to their marriage
were Thomas Redman, Mary Goble and John Humphrey.
Thomas Redman was most probably James's brother-in-law.
(They were not my direct ancestors.)
James Goble was probably baptised as
on 20 January 1767 at the
parish church of St. Mary's in
Funtington, Sussex, and was the son of
Elizabeth Collimar (1739-1811), although in the baptism register his
mother's name was recorded as Mary. He probably died aged 84 years
(according to the burial register) at Chalk Pits and was buried on 5 March
1847 in Funtington. James was a witness to the marriage of John
Collins and Hannah Greentree of Washington, on 12 May 1821 in
It has been suggested that James was baptised in Selham,
Sussex in 1765, but I believe that
Peryer in 1786.
Sarah Ansell was baptised on 19 September 1775 in West Dean.
She was the daughter of Henry Ansell and Mary Rodgers.
She died aged 86 years and was buried on 13 December 1859 in Funtington.
Sarah was a witness to the marriage of John Gregery and Ann
Saunders, widow on 7 January 1804 in Funtington.
When the 1841 census was recorded James and Sarah were living at Chalkpit,
West Ashling in Funtington and James was then a 75 year old agricultural
labourer and Sarah was 65 years old (remember, ages of adults were generally
rounded up or down in the 1841 census). The 1841 census records that
neither of them were born in Sussex, but this was probably an error.
In 1851, Sarah was living in East Ashling and she was a 77 year old widow
who gave her place of birth as Westdean. She was then in receipt of
parish relief. She had a 10 year old lodger with her in 1851, Fanny
Gilbert who was a scholar. Next door on the census enumerator's
route was the family of Richard Gilbert and Harriet who had
also been living next door to James and Sarah in 1841. (Richard
Gilbert married Harriet Poling on 22 May 1826 in Singleton.)

Elizabeth Goble was baptised on 17 January 1798 in Funtington.
She may have died on 31 October 1860 in Marrabel, South Australia.
On 17 October 1827 she was a witness to the marriage of her brother Thomas
Elizabeth married Thomas Penny by banns on 9 October 1824 in
Funtington. The witnesses to the marriage were Henry Suett
and Sarah Goble.
Thomas was baptised on 1 June 1800 in Funtington and was the son of
John Penny (c1770-1832) and Jane Vollar (c1776-1855).
