George HYLAND (c1684-?)

and Elizabeth STANLEY (1686-1752)

and Elizabeth WALLS (1725-1783)

 

George Hyland and Elizabeth Stanley may have been my 7x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 30 November 1723 in Ringmer, Sussex.  After Elizabeth's death, George married Elizabeth Walls by banns on 21 October 1755 in Ringmer.

George Hyland's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  (See below for details of 3 possible baptisms.)

Elizabeth Stanley was baptised on 14 March 1685/6 in Ringmer, Sussex.  She was the daughter of 5 234 John Stanley (1656-?) and Elizabeth Tanner (1656-?).  She was buried on 18 August 1752 in Ringmer by the name of Elizabeth Highland.  Before her marriage she had a son:

  1. John Stanley was baptised on 8 September 1717 in Ringmer.  Might he have married Mary Pricknall or Pucknall on 10 October 1752 at St. Anne's in Lewes, Sussex?

Elizabeth Walls may have been baptised on 25 January 1724/5 in Falmer, Sussex and have been the daughter of John Walls and Mary.  An Elizabeth Hyland was buried in Ringmer on 11 March 1783.

 

George Hyland and Elizabeth Stanley had 3 known children:

  1. Ann Highland, my possible 6x Great Grandmother, was baptised on 14 October 1724 in Ringmer.  She may have married my 6x Great Grandfather John Beck in 1754, but his name was recorded as John Boxall in the marriage register.  (They have their own page.)

  2. George Hyland was baptised on 1 June 1726 in Ringmer.  He married twice.  Firstly to Elizabeth Gower in 1749 and then to Ann Durrant in 1757.  (They have their own page.)

  3. William Hiland was baptised on 28 October 1728 in Ringmer and buried there on 11 December 1731.

 

George Hyland and Elizabeth Walls had 2 known children:

  1. John Hyland was baptised on 6 December 1756 in Ringmer.  His parents were named as George and Elizabeth in the baptism register.  The Laughton burial register records that John son of George and Elizabeth Hylands was buried on 26 March 1764.

  2. William Hyland was baptised on 1 September 1760 in Ringmer.  His parents were named as George and Elizabeth in the baptism register.  He may have been the infant William Highland who was buried on 29 September 1760 in Ringmer.  Or William may have married Jane Sexton by banns on 17 October 1798 in Ringmer.  They were both then of Ringmer.  Then as a widower, he may have married Mary Reed, spinster, on 9 September 1805 in Laughton.  They were both of Laughton and both made their (X) marks.  The witnesses to their marriage were Henry Bexhill and William Page who both signed their names.

    William and Mary had the following children:

    1. Richard Hylands was buried as an infant on 17 November 1805 in Laughton.  Both his parents were named in the burial register.

    2. Robert Hylands was baptised on 24 April 1808 in Laughton and buried there as an infant on 26 May 1808.

 

 

Notes

 

Might one of the following baptism have been for George Hyland:
bullet

16 December 1683 in Ticehurst, Sussex, the son of Thomas Hyland and Susan Clifton

bullet

15 November 1685 in Westfield, Sussex, the son of John Hyland and Elizabeth Morris

bullet

25 February 1688 in Salehurst, Sussex, the son of George Hyland and Margaret.

Might there have been others? 

A George Highland married Elizabeth Cockes on 1 April 1716 in Iden, Sussex, at which time they were both of Iden.  They had 2 daughters:  Mary Highland in 1717 and Elizabeth Highland in 1719.  And there was a George Highland who married Elizabeth Jordan on 1 April 1716 in Maidstone, Kent - yes, both married on 1 April 1716!  They had a daughter Elizabeth Highland in 1724.  Which means there were 3 couples named George and Elizabeth around at about the same time.
