Elizabeth Carter was born about 1777 in Fulking, Sussex.  She died aged 87 years in Hove, Sussex and was buried on 12 June 1864 in Edburton.

In 1851, Elizabeth was a 74 year old widow and market gardener and she was living at Clappers in Edburton.  With her on census night were 2 of her children, 2 grandchildren - 26 year old Louisa Lelliott and 8 year old Mary Jane Lelliott - and 19 year old servant Edward Steele.


John Lelliott and Elizabeth Carter had 11 known children:

  1. John Lellyett was baptised on 21 April 1795 in Edburton.

  2. William Lellyett was baptised on 6 May 1798 in Edburton.  In 1851 he was a 52 year old widower and market gardener, living with his mother.

  3. Fanny Lellyett was baptised on 30 November 1800 in Edburton.

  4. Hannah Lellyett was baptised on 21 November 1802 in Edburton.

    Hannah may have married Henry Alderton on 17 November 1827 in Hove, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Hove.

  5. Sarah Lellyett was baptised on 26 May 1805 in Edburton.

    As Sarah Lelliott she married Edward Brown on 11 October 1827 in Edburton.

  8. Barbara Lelliott was baptised on 22 November 1812 in Edburton.

    Barbara married John Graimes on 17 September 1834 at St. Nicholas in Brighton, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Brighton.

    John was born on 11 August 1813 at Mill House in Poynings and baptised on 26 September 1813 at Holy Trinity, Poynings.  He was the son of James Graimes and Elizabeth Reynolds.  John was a wheelwright.  He died in 1885.

    When the 1841 census was recorded the couple and their 3 sons were living on Henfield Common in Henfield.  John was then a journeyman wheelwright.  In about 1843/4 the family moved to Patcham, Sussex and lived next to the old Vicarage, Church Hill.  When the 1881 census was recorded they were still living at Church Hill, Patcham, along with son Charles and 10 year old grandson George Baker.

    John and Barbara had 9 known children, 8 of whom were:

    1. Abraham Graimes was born about 1837 in Brighton.  He was 4 years old in 1841.  In 1851 he was a 15 year old farm labourer.

    3. James Henry Grames was born on 6 December 1840 and baptised on 3 January 1841 at St. Peter's in Woodmancote, Sussex.  The 1841 census records that he was 5 month old John Graimes, but this must have been an error as his elder brother was also named John.  In 1851 he was a 10 year old farm labourer.

      As James Henry Graimes he married Caroline Stillaway on 13 November 1880 at St. Peter's in Brighton, Sussex.  He was then 38 years old and she 34.  Their fathers were named as John Graimes and James Stillaway.

      Caroline was born on 9 April 1846 and baptised on 14 June 1846 in Henfield, Sussex and was the daughter of James Stillaway (1817-1885) and Hetty Elliott (1820-1899).

      When the 1881 census was recorded the couple were living at 12 Lorne Road, Preston, Sussex and James was a wheelwright.  By 1901 they were living at 1 Viaduct Road, Brighton and James was a furniture porter.

      James and Caroline had 4 known children:

      1. Charles James Henry Graimes was baptised on 29 January 1882 at St. Peter's in Brighton..

      3. Frederick Edward Percy Graimes was born in 1886.

      4. Lily Florence Graimes was born in 1888.

    4. Elizabeth Ellen Graimes was born about 1843 in Patcham, Sussex.  When the 1851 census was recorded she was 8 years old and living at home.  She married Samuel Baker on 25 March 1864 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  He died before the recording of the 1881 census as Elizabeth was then a widow living at 5 Westgate Street or Lane in Lewes.  Samuel and Elizabeth had the following children:

      1. Elizabeth Baker was born about 1866 in Lewes.

      2. Louisa Amy Barbara Baker was baptised on 20 June 1869 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.

      3. George Baker was born about 1871 in Lewes.  He seems to have been recorded twice in the 1881 census, with his mother and his maternal grandparents.

      4. Henry Baker was born about 1873 in Lewes and baptised on 27 May 1875 at All Saints in Lewes.

    5. Charles William Graimes was baptised on 4 January 1846 in Patcham.  In 1851 he was 6 years old.  When the 1881 census was recorded he was an unmarried 35 year old wheelwright living with his parents.

    6. Mary Anne Graimes was baptised on 27 June 1852 in Patcham.

    7. George Graimes was baptised on 25 February 1855 in Patcham.

    8. Louisa Graimes was born about 1858 in Patcham.  She was 3 years old when the 1851 census was recorded.

  9. James Lelliott may have been part of this family.  He died aged 23 years in Fulking and was buried on 14 July 1838 in Edburton, therefore, he was born about 1815.

  10. Henry Lelliott was born about 1817 in Edburton.

    Henry married Eliza Dunton on 9 February 1841 in Brighton.

    Eliza was baptised on 4 October 1818 in Bolney, Sussex and was the daughter of John Dunton (1784-?) and Elizabeth Tullett (1787-?).

    Henry and Eliza had 2 known children:

    1. Eliza Ann Lelliott was baptised on 24 April 1842 in Hurstpierpoint.  At the time of her baptism her father was a labourer.

    2. George Henry James Lelliott was baptised on 4 February 1849 in Hurstpierpoint.  He died aged 1 years and was buried on 25 May 1850 in Hurstpierpoint.

  11. Eliza Lelliott was born about 1821.
