George GREENFIELD (1843-?)

and Harriet WILLARD (1846-?)

 

George Greenfield and Harriet Willard married on 12 September 1865 in Pulborough, Sussex.  He was then a 22 year old bachelor and labourer and she a 19 year old spinster.  They were both of Pulborough.  Their fathers were named as George Greenfield and Clement Willard who were both labourers.  The witnesses to their marriage were Thomas Greenfield and Jesse Greenfield.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  Harriet was the sister of my 2x Great Grandfather, George Willard.)

George Greenfield was baptised as George Elliott on 5 March 1843 in Billingshurst, Sussex, and it was noted in the baptism register that his parents were from Pulborough.  He was the son of George Elliott (also known as Greenfield) and Jane Winsor.  The 1851 census records that 8 year old George Greenfield, born in Billingshurst was living in Beeding Lane in Pulborough with his parents, George and Jane.  They had married 21 October 1839 in Pulborough as 30 year old widower George Elliott son of George Greenfield, and 22 year old spinster Jane Winsor daughter of Abraham Winsor.  George was most probably baptised in 1804 in Sutton, Sussex, which agrees with his place of birth given in 1851, and he was most probably the son of George Greenfield and Charlotte Elliott who married in 1805.  The death of a 63 year old George Greenfield was registered in the third quarter of 1907 in the Thakeham registration district.

Harriet Willard was baptised on 31 May 1846 in Pulborough.  She was the daughter of Clement Willard (1813-1896) and Sophia Holder (1811-1884).  When the 1851 census was recorded she was a 5 year old scholar living at home with her parents.  The family were then living in part of Kings Cottage in Pulborough.

In 1871 the couple were living at Old Farm House in Greatham and George was an agricultural labourer.  Also with them on census night were their 2 children, 4 year old niece Eliza Willard and Harriet's mother.  When the 1881 census was recorded the family were living at Old Farm House in Greatham and George was an agricultural labourer.  They also had a lodger living with them in 1881, 87 year old widower, Daniel Daughtery.  The 1891 census records that the couple and 7 children were living in Quell House, Greatham.  George was then a 49 year old farm labourer and Harriet was 44.  In 1901, George and Harriet were living in School Road Amberley and he was a 58 year old shepherd and she was 54.  With them on census night were 3 of their children, nameley George, William and Edward.

 

George Greenfield and Harriet Willard had 9 known children:

  1. Walter Greenfield was baptised on 24 June 1866 in Pulborough.  In 1871 he was 4 years old.  He was a 15 year old agricultural labourer in 1881, living at home.  In 1891 he was a 24 year old lodger in the home of his Uncle Clement Smith in Broadwater.

    Walter married Fanny Maria Herbert in the third quarter of 1893 in the East Preston registration district.  He was a bricklayer's labourer in 1901, living in Broadwater, along with wife Frances and 3 children:

    1. Albert Greenfield was born about 1894 in Broadwater.

    2. George Greenfield was born about 1900 in Broadwater.

    3. Winifred Greenfield was born in 1901 in Broadwater.  She was a month old when the 1901 census was recorded.

    Fanny Maria was baptised on 27 September 1868 in Broadwater and was the daughter of Edward Herbert (1845-?) and Frances Greenfield (1847-?).  Her parents, 5 siblings and an Uncle were living in Broadwater Street, Broadwater when the 1881 census was recorded, but Fanny was not with them, nor have I been able to find her in the on-line 1881 census.

  2. Edith Greenfield was born about 1869 in Greatham.  She was 2 years old in 1871.  In 1881 she was a 12 year old scholar.

  3. Frank Greenfield was born in the first quarter of 1872 in Greatham.  He was a 9 year old scholar in 1881.  At the time of the 1891 census he was a 19 year old farm labourer and the eldest of his siblings living at home.  In 1901 he was a 29 year old carter on a farm, living in Storrington

  4. George Greenfield was born about 1874 in Greatham.  He was a 7 year old scholar in 1881.  In 1891 he was a 17 year old shepherd living at home.  The 1901 census records that he was a 28 year old carter on a farm.

  5. William Greenfield was born about 1878 in Greatham.  When the 1881 census was recorded he was 4 years old.  The 1891 census seems to have recorded him as 14 year old Thomas Greenfield, a farm labourer living with his parents.  He was a 23 year old farm labourer when the 1901 census was recorded.

  6. Fanny Greenfield was born about 1880 in Greatham.  She was a year old at the time of the 1881 census.  The 1891 census appears to have recorded her name as Mary Greenfield and she was an 11 year old scholar.

  7. Amy Greenfield was born about 1882 in Greatham.  She died in 1972.  In 1891 she was a 9 year old scholar.  In 1901, she was a 20 year old servant living in Hove.  Amy married Walter Thomas Farley in 1908.  He was born in 1874 and died in 1966.  (ref.  http://trees.ancestry.co.uk/pt/person.aspx?tid=587210&pid=-2070867533)

  8. Edwin Greenfield was born about 1884 in Greatham.  He was a 7 year old scholar in 1891.  The 1901 census seems to have recorded his name as Edward Greenfield a 16 year old labourer in the chalk pits.

  9. Sidney John Greenfield was born about 1887 in Greatham.  At the time of the 1891 census he was 4 years old.  He died aged 5 years and his death was registered in the first quarter of 1892 in the Thakeham registration district.
