William GUILE (1846-?)

and Jane PARSONS (c1846-?)

 

William Guile and Jane Parsons on 1 December 1867 in Broadwater, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

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 was the son of James Guile (1803-?) and Harriet Austen (c1806-?).  The baptism register recored his mother's name as Amy, but that was most probably an error.  He was a 4 year old scholar in 1851.  In 1861 he was a 14 year old gardener and he was living at home with his elder siblings.

Jane Parsons was born about 1846 in Worthing, Sussex.  She may have been born on 26 July 1846 and have been baptised on 20 September 1846 in Broadwater as the daughter of Louisa Parsons.  Jane's marriage entry in the IGI records that her father's name was George Parsons.  When the 1851 census was recorded she was 4 years old and living at 22 West Street in Broadwater, which was the home of her 66 year old grandmother, Elizabeth Parsons who was then said to be a fisherman's wife.  In 1861 she was a 16 year old house servant in the home of Olliver Penfold, a lodging house keeper in Broadwater.

When the 1871 census was recorded, the couple and 2 sons were living in Broadwater Street and William was a 24 year old labourer.  Jane was then 25 years old.  In 1881 the couple and 6 children were still living in Broadwater Street and William was a 34 year old carman.  By 1891 the family had moved to 4 The Square in Broadwater.  William was then a 44 year old labourer and Jane was 46.  Five of their children were at home on census night in 1891.

 

William Guile and Jane Parsons had 9 known children:

  7. Lily Emily Guile was born in the fourth quarter of 1881 in Broadwater, and baptised there on 6 November 1881.  In 1891 she was a 9 year old scholar.

  8. Louisa Guile was born in the fourth quarter of 1883 in Broadwater and baptised there on 6 January 1884.  She was a 7 year old scholar in 1891.

    George married Harriet Charman Grevatt in the second quarter of 1912.
