William HAMPSHIRE (1781-1875)

and Ann GRANT (1787-1863)

 

William Hamsheer and Ann Grant married on 5 December 1803 in Fittleworth, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

William Hampshire was baptised on 11 March 1781 in Fittleworth, Sussex.  He was the son of James Hampshier (1750-?) and Phoebe Simmons (1748-?).  William died aged 94 years and was buried on 25 February 1875 in Pulborough, Sussex.  The burial register recorded his name as William Hampshire.

Ann Grant was baptised on 11 February 1787 in Oving, Sussex.  She was the daughter of James Grant (c1749-1791) and Elizabeth.  Ann died aged 78 years and was buried on 16 June 1863 in Pulborough.  The burial register recorded her name as Ann Hamphire.

On 22 April 1809, a removal order was issued to return William Hampshire, his wife Ann and 3 children to Pulborough from Wisborough Green (or vice versa).

When the 1841 census was recorded, William was said to be a 60 year old agricultural labourer and he was living at Cold Harbour in Pulborough along with Ann aged 56, their 2 youngest daughters and 2 year old granddaughter Mary A. Hampshire.

In 1851 the couple together with 2 of their daughters (Jane and Ann) and 2 grandchildren (James Hampshire 15 and Mary Ann Hampshire 12) were living in Coldharbour Cottage in Pulborough.  William was then a 69 year old agricultural labourer and gave his place of birth as Fittleworth.  Ann was a 65 year old nurse and said she was born in Oving.

The 1861 census records that William was an 80 year old agricultural labourer and Ann was 77.  They were living together at Cold Harbor in Pulborough.

In 1871, William was 90 year old and living at Cold Harbour Cottage.  The census had recorded that he was in receipt of parish pay but this had been crossed out and over the top his occupation was given as super??? farm labourer.  His daughter Ann was also living with him as his nurse.

 

William Hampshire and Ann Grant had 10 known children:

  1. William Hamsar was baptised on 18 November 1804 in Fittleworth.  He was said to be 4 years old when his parents were issued a removal order in 1809.

Sumer at Mill House in Fittleworth.  She died aged 55 years and her death was registered as Mary Ann Turner in the second quarter of 1893 in the Petworth registration district.

    George was baptised on 26 June 1809 in Angmering and was the son of John Hollands (c1775-1851) and Frances Wood (c1775-1851).  He died aged 72 years and was buried on 9 April 1880 in Patching.

    In 1851, the couple and their young son were living in Patching.  He was then a 41 year old agricultural labourer and she was 28.  He said he was born in Angmering and she in Pulborough.  The 1861 census records the couple and their 2 children were living on Clapham Common in Clapham, Sussex.  George was then a 52 year old labourer and Maria was 41.  When the 1871 census was recorded the couple were living together in a cottage in Clapham.  George was then a 67 year old labourer and Maria was said to be 47.

    George and Maria had the following children:

A Charlotte Hampshire married William Edwards by banns on 29 March 1833 in Rudgwick, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Rudgwick.  The witnesses to their marriage were William Henley and Sarah Woodhatch

When the 1841 census was recorded the couple were both said to be 25 years old and they were living in a part of a house in Limwick Lane in Rudgwick, along with 4 children.  In 1851 the couple and 6 children were living in Limwick Street Lane.  William was then a 45 year old agricultural labourer and Charlotte was 42.  They both said they were born in Rudgwick.  At the time of the 1861 census, 56 year old William and 52 year old Charlotte were living at Hatches in Rudgwick along with 5 of their children and 5 year old granddaughter Harriett Woolgar.  William was then an agricultural labourer and the couple again both said they were born in Rudgwick.

In addition to the Charlotte Hamsher baptised in 1808 above, another Charlotte Hampshire was baptised on 30 September 1810 in Pulborough, the daughter of William Hampshire and Mary.  She may have been returned to Rudgwick from Pulborough with her parents William and Amelia, on 23 May 1812.  Given that William and Charlotte named a daughter Amelia and Charlotte consistently said she was born in Rudgwick, I am inclined to think it was 1810 Charlotte rather than 1808 who married William.)

William and Charlotte had the following children:

  1. Emily Edwards was baptised on 6 October 1833 in Rudgwick.  The baptism register noted that her father was a labourer.  She died aged 1 year at Warhams and was buried on 5 June 1835 in Rudgwick.

Edwards.  (Another George Woolger son of Thomas married Ann Raggett on 30 July 1855 in Haslemere, Surrey.)

    When the 1871 census was recorded the couple and 5 children were living at Daws in Warnham, Sussex.  George was then said to be a 50 year old agricultural labourer and Harriott's age was recorded as 30 years.  His place of birth was recorded as Cranleigh, Surrey and hers as Rudgwick.
