Reuben GUILE (1827-1901)

and Lucy HOBDEN (1822-1903)

 

Reuben Guile and Lucy Hobden married in the second quarter of 1850 in the Worthing registration district.  (They were not my direct ancestors, but they were the 2x great grandparents of my cousins.)

Reuben Guile was baptised on 30 September 1827 in Broadwater, Sussex. at which time his father was a labourer.  He was the son of Rueben Guile (1801-1876) and Frances Giles (c1799-1876).  He died aged 74 years and his death was registered as Rueben Guile in the second quarter of 1901 in the East Preston registration district.  When the 1841 census was recorded he was 14 years old and living with his parents and siblings in Heene.

Lucy Hobden was baptised on 9 June 1822 in Bolney, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Thomas Hobden and Martha Starley.  The 1861 census records her place of birth as Keymer, Sussex.  She died aged 80 years and her death was registered as Lucy Guile in the first quarter of 1903 in the East Preston registration district.

Before her marriage Lucy had an illegitimate daughter:
