Henry LILLIOTT (1801-1887)

and Hannah HILLMAN (c1808-?)


Henry Lilliott and Hannah Hillman married on 11 May 1828 in Ashurst, Sussex.  Henry was a bachelor and Hannah spinster.  The witnesses to their marriage were George Hillman and Mary Lilliott.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Henry Lelliott was baptised on 1 November 1801 in Ashurst.  He was the son of John Lelliott (1764-1850) and Zilpha Dumbrill (1771-?).  Henry died aged 86 years and was buried on 19 March 1887 in Ashurst.

Hannah Hillman was born in about 1808 (as per the IGI).  She died before 1851.

At the time of the 1841 census the couple and their 6 children were living at New Warf in Ashurst.  Henry was then an agricultural labourer.  In 1851 Henry was a 47 year old widower living with his 7 children in the Parish House in Ashurst.  His place of birth was then recorded as Steyning in Sussex.  When the 1861 cenus was recorded widower Henry Lelliott aged 57 was an agricultural labourer living with is daughter 22 year old Zilpha Lelliott who was a dressmaker, in Parish House, Ashurst.


Henry Lilliott and Hannah Hillman had 9 known children:

  1. Henry Lilliott was baptised on 12 April 1829 in Ashurst.  When the 1841 census was recorded he was 12 years old.

  2. Jane Lilliott was baptised on 6 May 1832 in Ashurst.  She was 9 years old in 1841.

  3. William Lilliott was baptised on 31 August 1834 in Ashurst.  He was 6 years old in 1841.  In 1851 he was a 16 year old agricultural labourer and the eldest of his siblings living with his father.

  4. Zilpha Lelliott was baptised on 11 December 1836 in Ashurst.  The 1841 census records that she was 4 year old Zelpah Lelliott.  She was 14 year old Zalphar Lelliott in 1851 and she was the housekeeper.

  5. George Lelliott was baptised on 16 March 1839 in Ashurst.  He was 2 years old on 1841.  In 1851 he was a 12 year old agricultural labourer.

  6. Ann Lelliott was baptised on 2 May 1841 in Ashurst.  At the time of the 1841 census she was 2 months old.  She was a 9 year old scholar in 1851.

  7. Ellen Lelliott was baptised on 14 May 1843 in Ashurst.  In 1851 she was a 7 year old scholar.

  8. Peter Lelliott was baptised on 22 June 1845 in Ashurst.  He was 5 years old in 1851.

  9. James Lelliott was baptised on 9 May 1847 in Ashurst.  He married Harriet Langridge (1845-?) in 1867.  (They have their own page.)




A Jesse Lilliat was baptised on 10 September 1830 in Ashurst as the son of Henry and Harriet.  I had thought that his mother's name had been wrongly recorded, and that her name should have been Hannah.  But in 1881 his 71 year old widowed mother, Harriet Lelliott, was living in his household at Lock Cottage in Ashurst.  Harriet had been born in Beeding in about 1810.  Jesse had married Caroline sometime before or about 1875 and by 1881 they had 3 children.
