James GUILE (1803-?)

and Harriet AUSTEN (c1806-?)

 

James Guile and Harriet Austen married by licence on 17 January 1827 in Sompting, Sussex.  He was then of Broadwater and she of Sompting.  The witnesses to their marriage were Jane Knowles, Reuben Austing, Martin Stubbs and Thomas Gates.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

James Guile was baptised on 23 April 1803 in Poling, Sussex.  He was the son of Samuel Guile (1765-1836) and Elizabeth Moody (1774-1856).  He may have died aged 84 years in the first quarter of 1888 in the East Preston registration district.  (Another James Guile died aged 86 years in the first quarter of 1892 in the East Preston district.)

Harriet Austen was born about 1806 in Sompting.  She may have died in the first quarter of 1860 in the Worthing registration district.

The 1841 census records their surname as Giles and they were then living in Broadwater. In 1851 the family were living in Broadwater at Street no. 24 and James was an agricultural labourer.  Also with them on census were 2 grandchildren, namely Sarah Ann Guile aged 2 and 8 month old Harriett Guile.  At the time of the 1861 census, 4 of their children and 2 grandchildren were living in Broadwater Street, where the eldest of them, 26 year old James, was described as son, but he appears to have been the head of the household as neither parent was at home on census night.

 

James Guile and Harriet Austen had 8 known children:

  1. Jane Guiler was born on 6 May 1827 and baptised on 3 June 1827 in Sompting, at which time her father was a labourer of Worthing.  She was 14 years old in 1841.

    Jane had 2 illegitimate daughters:

    1. Sarah Ann Guile was born on 12 November 1848 and baptised on 12 January 1849 in Broadwater.

    2. Harriet Guile was born on 20 August 1850 and baptised on 15 September 1850 in Broadwater.

  2. Harriet Guiles was born on 18 October 1829 and baptised on 29 November 1829 in Sompting, at which time her father was a labourer of Sompting.  In 1841 she was 11 years old.

  3. Sarah Guiles was born on 23 December 1831 and baptised on 22 January 1832 in Sompting, at which time her father was a labourer of Sompting.  She died aged 9 years and was buried in Broadwater in 1841.

  4. James Guiles was born on 2 July 1834 and baptised on 3 August 1834 in Sompting, at which time his father was a labourer of Sompting.  In 1841 he was 6 years old.  He was a 15 year old shepherd in 1851.  In 1861 he was an unmarried 26 year old agricultural labourer and living in Broadwater Street along with 3 younger siblings and a 3 year old nephew, Austen Guile and a 13 day old unnamed neice.

  5. Samuel Guile was baptised on 13 August 1837 in Sompting.  In 1841 he was 3 years old.  He was a 13 year old errand boy in 1851.

  6. Mary Ann Guile was born on 22 October 1840 and baptised on 6 December 1840 in Broadwater, at which time her father was a labourer of Broadwater.  At the time of the 1841 census she was 7 months old.  In 1851 she was a 10 year old scholar.  The 1861 census records that she was an unmarried 20 year old former washerwoman.

  7. Anna Guile was born on 4 September 1843 and baptised on 22 October 1843 in Broadwater, at which time her father was a labourer of Broadwater.  The 1851 census records her name as Amy Guile and she was then a 7 year old scholar.  The 1861 census also recorded her name as Amy and she was then 17 years old and described as an agricultural labourer's daughter.

  8. William Guile was born on 11 December 1846 and baptised on 7 February 1847 in Broadwater, at which time his father was a labourer of Broadwater.  He married Jane Parsons in 1867.  (They have their own page.)
