John LILYET (c1761-1819)

and Anne (?-?)


John Lillyett and Ann may have married before 1793, possibly near Mid Lavant, Sussex.   (They were not my direct ancestors.)  A John Lelliott married Ann Chennell on 6 May 1790 in Rudgwick, Sussex.  That John was then a bachelor of Abinger, Surrey and Ann was a spinster of Rudgwick.  That couple may have had children baptised in Oakwood, Surrey.

John Lillyett may have been born about 1761.  He died aged 58 years and was buried on 2 June 1819 in Mid Lavant.  The burial register recorded his name as John Lellyett and he was then from the parish of St. Peter the Great in Chichester, Sussex.  A John Lilliot was baptised on 7 September 1760 at St. Pancras, Chichester, the son of John Lilliot and Susannah (?-1763).

Anne's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.


John Lillyett and Anne had 8 known children:

  1. John Lilyet was baptised on 10 March 1793 in Mid Lavant.

  2. Sarah Lilyet was baptised on 20 September 1795 in Mid Lavant.

  3. William Lilyet was baptised on 24 October 1796 in Mid Lavant.  A transcript of the Mid Lavant burial register records that a William Lelyot from the Subdeanery, Chichester, died aged 25 years and was buried on 23 December 1815, i.e. born about 1790.

  4. Mary Ann Lilyet was baptised on 3 March 1798 in Mid Lavant.

  5. Eliza Lilyett was baptised on 3 June 1800 in Mid Lavant.

  6. Jane Lilyett was baptised on 19 September 1802 in Mid Lavant.

  7. Charles Lilyett was baptised on 28 May 1805 in Mid Lavant and buried there on 20 October 1805.

  8. Henry Lilyett was baptised on 25 October 1807 in Mid Lavant.

    As Henry Lilyett he may have married Louisa Houlden or Rouben by banns on 25 December 1830 at St. Pancras, Chichester.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Blurwen and Elizabeth Boniface.

    Henry and Louisa had the following child:

    1. Elizabeth Lelliott was baptised on 15 November 1831 at St. Peter the Great in Chichester.  The baptism register noted that her father was a coachmaker from Somers Town.
