George HAMPSHIRE (1821-?)

and Mary PUTTICK (1825-1898)

 

George Hampshire and Mary Puttick married on 13 April 1851 in Petworth, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and labourer from Wiggonholt and she a spinster from the Petworth Union Workhouse.  Their fathers were named as William Hampshire and Peter Puttick who were both labourers.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Puttick and Walter Vinson.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

George Hampshire was baptised on 7 January 1821 in Pulborough, Sussex.  He was the son of William Hampshire (1781-1875) and Ann Grant (1787-1863).  At the time of his baptism, his father was a labourer.  In 1841 he was said to be a 20 year old agricultural labourer and he was living in the home of Richard Challen at the Manor House in Hardham, Sussex.  When the 1851 census was recorded he was an unmarried 30 year old agricultural labourer, lodging in the home of 63 year old William Cooper at White Hart Farm in Pulborough.

On 10 April 1847, George was a witness to the marriage of George Bachelor and Margaret Smith Slater, in Pulborough.

Mary Puttick was baptised on 8 August 1825 in Kirdford, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Peter Puttock (1788-?) and Mary Quelch (1796-?).  The death of a 74 year old Mary Hampshire was registered in the third quarter of 1898 in the Thakeham registration district.  When the the 1841 census was recorded she was most probably the 20 year old servant Mary Puttick living in the home of Elizabeth Young at Byworth in Petworth.  Interestingly, a 20 year old John Quelch was living in the previous property on the census enumerators route.  In 1851 she was an unmarried 25 year old pauper and servant living in the Petworth workhouse.

Before her marriage Mary had the following daughter:

  1. Mary Ann Puttick was baptised on 15 July 1849 in Kirdford.  She died aged 24 years and her death was registered in the fourth quarter of 1873 in the Thakeham registration district.  When the 1851 census was recorded she was a year old and living with her maternal grandparents at Snood Green in Kirdford.  The 1861 census records that she was 11 year old Ann Hampshire and she was then a scholar.

    Before her marriage Mary Ann had the following son:

    1. Albert George Hampshire was born on 26 December 1867 in Thakeham, Sussex and baptised as Albert George Puttick or Downer on 1 March 1868 in West Chiltington, Sussex.  In 1871 he was 3 years old and 13 in 1881, and on each occasion he was living with his maternal grandparents.

      Albert married Miriam Knight on 19 January 1891 in the Horsham registration register office.

      Miriam was born on 22 October 1866 in Rudgwick and baptised there on 2 December 1866.  She was the daughter of John Knight (1844-?) and Sarah Woodhatch (1843-?).

    As Mary Ann Puttick she married George Downer on 11 April 1868 in Thakeham.

    George was baptised on 11 July 1847 in Thakeham and was the son of Henry Downer (1814-1874) and Lucy Ansell (1816-1870).  He died aged 63 years and his death was registered in the third quarter of 1911 in the Thakeham registration district.  After Mary Ann's death, George married Sarah Hoar in the first quarter of 1878 in the Thakeham registration district.

    At the time of the 1871 census, 23 year old George and 21 year old Mary Ann were living in Griggs Cottage in Thakeham, along with their young son.  George was then an agricultural labourer and gave his place of birth as Thakeham, whilst Mary Ann said she was born in Kirdford.

    In 1881, 33 year old George was still an agricultural labourer and he was living at West Dunhill in Thakeham, along with his 26 year old wife Sarah and 4 children (2 from his first marriage and 2 from the second).

    George and Mary Ann had the following child:

    1. John Henry Downer was born in the third quarter of 1869 in Thakeham.  He was a year old when the 1871 census was recorded.  In 1881 he was 11 years old.

    2. Mary Ann Downer was born in the second quarter of 1873 in Thakeham.  She was 7 years old when the 1881 census was recorded.  She died aged 7 years and her death was registered in the second quarter of 1881 in the Thakeham registration district.

 

At the time of the 1861 census, the couple and their 4 children were living in West Chiltington.  George was then said to be a 42 year old agricultural labourer and Mary was 36.  He gave his place of birth as Pulborough, whilst Mary said she was born in Kirdford.

When the 1871 census was recorded, George was a 50 year old agricultural labourer and Mary was 45 years old.  They were living at Stile House in Pulborough, along with 2 of their sons and 3 year old grandson Albert G. Hampshire.

In 1881 the couple and their grandson Albert were living in Cray Hill Lane in Pulborough.  George was then a 60 year old agricultural labourer and Mary was 55.

By 1891, the couple were living alone on Nutbourne Common in Pulborough.  George was a 71 year agricultural labourer and Mary was 67.

 

George Hampshire and Mary Puttick had 3 known children:

  1. John Hampshire was baptised on 21 April 1851 in Kirdford.  He was a 9 year old agricultural labourer in 1861.

  2. Edwin Hampshire was baptised on 23 April 1854 in Pulborough.  The baptism register noted that his father was a labourer.  He was 7 years old when the 1861 census was recorded.  In 1871 he was a 17 year old agricultural labourer and he was living at home.

  3. Albert Hampsher was baptised on 17 May 1857 in Pulborough, at which time his father was a labourer.  In 1861 he was 3 years old.  He was living with his parents in 1871 and he was then a 14 year old agricultural labourer.
