William JACKSON (1801-1873)

and Hannah NORRIS (c1806-1888)

 

William Jackson and Hannah Norris married by banns on 4 November 1823 in Pulborough, Sussex.  They were both then of Pulborough.  The witnesses to their marriage were Rebecca Overington and James Overington.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  Hannah was the sister of my 3x Great Grandmother, Susan Norris.)

William Jackson may have been baptised 9 August 1801 in Amberley, Sussex, and have been the son of William Jackson and Sarah (possibly Sarah Fields who married a William Jackson on 2 April 1787 in Lancing, Sussex).  However, from his age in the various census it would seem he may have been born about 1802/3.  William died on 27 May 1873 in Amberley.

Hannah Norris was born about 1806 and baptised on 11 June 1821 in Billingshurst, Sussex aged 14 years.  She was the daughter of Richard Norris (1755-1826) and Hannah Scutt (1769-1849).  Hannah died on 10 March 1888 in Amberley, aged 82 years.

When the 1841 census was recorded the couple and their 6 children were living in Amberley.  They were both said to have been 35 years old and born in Sussex.  William was then a labourer.

In 1851 the family were living at Hughs House in Amberley.  William was a 48 year old agricultural labourer and gave his place of birth as Amberley.  Hannah was 45 and said she was born in Billingshurst.  Five of their children were at home on census night and with them was unmarried 25 year old lodger,  Thomas Sayers who was an agricultural labourer from Cowfold.

The 1871 census records that the couple and their son William were living in Amberley.  William senior was a 68 year old agricultural labourer and Hannah was 65.  Their married daughter Charlotte and her family were living in the next household on the census enumerator's route.
