Daniel HAYLOR (c1688-1753)

and Eleanor JUPP (c1690-1769)


Daniel Haylor and Eleanor Jupp may have been my 7x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 23 May 1717 in Pulborough, Sussex.  Daniel was then of Billingshurst, Sussex and Eleanor of Pulborough.

Daniel Haylor may have been baptised on 23 August 1687, the son of John Hayler, or on 18 August 1688, the son of Daniel Hayler and Mary Willett.  Both baptisms took place in Billingshurst.  The other Daniel may have married Mary Weller by licence on 15 November 1720 in Wiggonholt, at which time they were both said to be of Pulborough.    There was also a Daniel Haylor who was baptised on 16 February 1691/2, the son of Edward Haylor, but he was buried in Billingshurst on 12 March 1692/3.  Or might he have been born and baptised earlier?

Daniel was buried on 7 October 1753 in Billingshurst.  He left a will dated 17 February 1748 and proved on 26 July 1754.  In his will he mentioned his wife Eleanor and appointed his only daughter and child, Jane Etheridge, as the executrix.  When he made his will he was in a weak and low condition.  He was then a labourer living at Rosar Gate (Rosier Gate on today's map), which is about 3/4 of a mile to the east of the centre of Billingshurst.  He left all his property to his daughter, but directed that his wife should not be "destitute of a habitation" and she was to be given "free liberty" of the property and 1 per year.

On 26 June 1699, a Daniel Haylor was apprenticed to Richard Simons.  Daniel was said to be a poor child of Billingshurst.  Then on 17 August 1700, a Thomas Hayler, poor child of Billingshurst was apprenticed to Daniel Hayler or Thomas Greenfield.  On the same day, Susan Worsfold, poor child of Billingshurst was apprenticed to Daniel Hayler.  On 17 September 1679, a James Jupp of Steyning was apprenticed to Daniell Hayler of Billingshurst.

Eleanor Jupp's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 17 February 1769 in Billingshurst.  An Elinor Jupp was baptised on 15 June 1675 in Itchingfield, Sussex, the daughter of John Jupp and Mary.  Itchingfield borders Billingshurst.  If this is the correct baptism for Eleanor it would help explain why she only had 1 child, as she would have been about 43 years old when her daughter was born in 1718.  However, the 1675 baptism would mean she died aged about 94, and no mention was made of her great age in the burial register.  The Shipley burial register records that an Eleanor Jupp was buried on 27 September 1689, and Shipley borders both Billingshurst and Itchingfield.


Daniel Haylor and Eleanor Jupp had 1 known daughter:

  1. Jane Haylor, my possible 6x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 11 May 1718 in Billingshurst.  She married John Etheridge in 1739.  (They have their own page.)



John Haylor left a will dated 17 October 1692 and proved in November 1692.  He mentioned the following children:  John Haylor was left property in Wisborough Green, Daniel Haylor, Jesse Haylor, Elizabeth Haylor, and youngest son Stephen Haylor to whom he left 2 farms named Towneland and Hill land in Billingshurst.  John was buried on 24 October 1692 in Billingshurst.



As was mentioned above, a Daniel Hayler married Mary Weller in 1720, when they were both of Pulborough.  They may have had the following children:

  1. Elizabeth Hayler was baptised on 2 April 1721 in Pulborough.

  2. Mary Hayler was baptised on 5 August 1722 in Pulborough.

  3. Sarah Hayler was baptised on 21 July 1728 in Pulborough.

On 14 June 1729 a removal order was issued to remove Daniel Hayler together with his wife Mary and children Mary and Elizabeth, from Pulborough to Billingshurst, or vice versa.


On 17 April 1705, Daniel Hayler, along with Jasper Sold and John Sayes were in occupation of a farm call Townlands (70a.) in Billingshurst; tenement and lands in Billingshrust near Gingers; two tenements and 2a. land in Billingshurst.
