My Lelliott Ancestors
I join the Lelliott tree with a 4x
Naomi Lelliott, who was baptised in 1784 in
Ashington, Sussex, but probably born in nearby Wiston. She was the daughter of
Samuel Lelliott (1748-1817) and
Sergeant. Naomi married
(1780-1874) in 1805 in Brighton. They eventually settled in Henfield,
which was the ancestral home of the Woolgars.
Samuel was the son of
(c1705-1765) and Bridget Purvey
(1709-1778) and they raised their family in Woodmancote. I have not
found a baptism for Thomas but believe his parents to be
and Mary Cooper.
William left a Will in which he named 5 sons and 2 daughters - 4 of
the sons and 1 daughter have identified baptisms, the unidentified are
Thomas and Sarah.
William may have been born about 1660-1665, or there abouts. He
was granted the administration of his father's estate in 1686, who was then
described as Henry Lyllyot of Shermanbury.
Henry may have been born in Aldingbourne, Sussex in 1638, the son of
William Liliet and Maria Strong who married there in 1629.
And from there the line extends back via Robert, Henry,
Thomas and William who may have been born around about 1475 -
many thanks to Malcolm Lelliot for the early data. However,
Aldingbourne to Shermanbury is a fair distance, and I just wonder how and
why they came to make the journey.
