and Mary (c1640-1681)
Mary were most probably my 8x Great Grandparents. (Click
to see their place in my pedigree chart.)
They may have married sometime before or about 1661, but no possible
marriage has been found for them in either the Sussex Family History Group's
marriage index or the IGI. They settled in Shermanbury, Sussex in 1663
and it is likely they arrived there with a young son.
Henry Lylliott's date and place of
birth/baptism are unknown, to me. He may have been baptised
on 24 February 1638/9 in Aldingbourne, Sussex, and have been the son of
William Leliet and
Mary Stronge. Or, might he have been a grandson of
William Lilliat and
Henry died before 21
September 1686 as on that day Administration of his
estate, which was valued at £5:10s, was granted to his son William
Lylliot of Shermanbury. Henry's wife appears to have had twin's
baptised on 26 February 1680/1, and a William Lelliot was
buried in Shermanbury on 2 February 1680/1. Was the name William
wrongly recorded and might the burial have been of Henry?
Mary's date and place of birth/baptism
are unknown, to me. Mary Lelliot was buried on 5
March 1680/1 in Shermanbury.
As the couple appear to have died in 1681, who took care of their children?
In March 1681 their children were aged about 4, 7, 9, 12, 17 and 19.
Henry Lylliott and Mary
had 8 known children:
William Lilliot, my 7x Great Grandfather, married
in 1688. (They have there own page.)
Thomas Lilliot was baptised on 26 April 1663 in Shermanbury,
the son of Henry.
He may have been the
Thomas Lelliot who married
Mary Leach in 1695. They married and settled in
Sompting, Sussex. I am not at all sure Shermanbury Thomas was the
one who went to Sompting. (They have their own page.)
Philip Lilliot was baptised on 14 April 1668 in Shermanbury, the
son of Henry.
Mary Lilliot was baptised on 17 July 1670 in Shermanbury, the
daughter of Henry. Did
she marry Benjamin Turner on 20 May 1704 in Billingshurst, Sussex?

the daughter of Henry.
She was buried on 8 July 1709 in Cowfold.
Elizabeth married John
Willett on 5 March 1701/2 in Shermanbury. At the time she was of
John was baptised on 6 November 1677 in Shermanbury and was the son of
John Williot. John or his son may have been buried on 22
December 1747 in Cowfold, but unfortunately the burial register only
records the name.
John and Elizabeth had 3 known children:
John Willet was baptised on 21 February 1702/3 in Cowfold.
He died aged 86 years and was buried on 6 February 1789 in Cowfold.
John married Anne Aylwood on 2 July 1728 in Bolney, Sussex.
He was then of Cowfold and she of Bolney.
Ann was baptised on 24 May 1707 in Bolney and was the daughter of
William Aylwood and Ann.
John and Ann had the following children:
Penelope Willett was baptised on 20 June 1729 in Cowfold.

Bob Morris's website for more details.)
Mary Willett was baptised on 31 January 1732/3 in Cowfold.
She married John Mitchel on 16 June 1754 in West Grinstead.
John Willett may have been part of this family.
He died aged 96 years and was buried on 20 September 1828 in Cowfold.
John married Ann Fayers by banns on 3 June 1762 in
Cowfold. They were both then of Cowfold. The witnesses to
their marriage were James Gratwicke Weeks and
Jane Worsfold. Ann died aged 84 years and was buried on
14 February 1819 in Cowfold. The burial register recorded that she
was the wife of John Willett.
Sarah Willett was baptised on 14 November 1736 in Cowfold.
She married John Field on 7 April 1763 in Cowfold.
Susan Willett was baptised on 27 May 1739 in Cowfold. She

October 1786 in Bolney.

Christian Willett (daughter) was baptised on 1 January 1743/4 in

He may have died aged 83 years (as per the burial register) and have
been buried on 16 February 1825 in Cowfold.
Thomas married Mary Moor on 27 May 1663 in Cowfold.
baptised on 5 July 1752 in Cowfold and was the daughter of
Moor (1729-1809) and

their own page.)

married Thomas Dove of Henfield on 31 March 1730 in Cowfold.
Elizabeth Willet was baptised on 10 November 1707 in Cowfold.
John Lilliot was baptised on 30 April 1676 in Shermanbury,
the son of Henry and Mary. John Lilliot the elder
was buried on 14 October 1712 in Shermanbury. (The younger John
was probably his nephew.)
John may have married Sarah before 1707 and possibly before 1702 and then
Mary before 1712. Or he may have been the
John Lelliott who
had settled in Sompting, Sussex by 1695, but I think this unlikely.
At the quarter sessions of 6/7 October 1701 held at Midhurst, John
Lilliott was sent by JP's order from Shermanbury to Henfield,
but the order was set aside and he was to be returned to Shermanbury.

son of John. He was
buried in Shermanbury on 3 October 1708.
William Lelliot was baptised on 18 February 1706/7 in
Shermanbury, the son of John and Sarah.

Susan Mazzel on 16 September 1627 in Albourne.
Susan was then of that parish.
Susanna Muzzell was baptised on 2 February 1704/5 in
Hurstpierpoint, Sussex, the daughter of Abraham Muzzell
and Susan Wrenn.
A removal order was issued on 6 October 1727 to Susannah Lilliot
and her 1 month old daughter Rebecca, removing them from Albourne to
Cowfold. It was noted that her husband William had run away.
Rebecca's reputed father was not named. Then on 13 May 1728 a
removal order was issued to Robert Muzzell and
Susannah Lilhot, the mother of a bastard child, removing them
from Alborne to Cowfold. Another removal order
was issued on 14 July 1735 returning Susannah Lilliott
to Cowfold from West Grinstead. Then at the Horsham quarter
sessions of 10/11 July 1738, Susan and her children Susan, Abraham and
James were removed from Nuthurst to Cowfold.

Rebecca Muzzal was baptised on 16 September 1727 in
Rebecca married Joseph Sharp on 10 September 1744
