Henry Lilliott and Lucy Nash married on 4 November 1876 at the parish church in Colgate, Sussex.  The witnesses to their marriage were H. W. Elliott and Dorcas Lilliott who was Henry's sister.   (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Henry Lelliott was born on 12 December 1851 in Woodmancote, Sussex and baptised there in the parish church of St. Peter on 18 January 1852.  The baptism register records that his father was a farmer.  He was the son of Henry Lilliot (1808-1890) and Jane Stringer (c1829-?).  Henry died on 29 October 1920 at Milton Street in Sussex and his cause of death was Carcinoma (Rectum) 7 months.  His cousin Frank Page registered the death and was also present at Henry's death.  When the 1861 census was recorded Henry was 9 years old and living with his parents in Billingshurst, Sussex.

Lucy Nash was born on 1 July 1848 in Privett, Hampshire.  She was the daughter of Moses Nash (c1818-?) and Elizabeth Nash (c1822-?).  Lucy died on 4 January 1932 at Crossways in Hellingly, Sussex.  Her cause of death was Cardiac Failure and Senility and was registered by her daughter Lucy M. Simmonds who was also present at the death.

At the time of the 1881 census the couple and their 3 daughters were living in Crutchfield Cottage in Charlwood, Surrey.  Henry was then an agricultural labourer.  In 1891 the family were living at Milton Street and Henry was a farm labourer.  The couple and their daughter Lucy were still living in Milton Street in 1901.
