Peter LILLIOT (1761-1842)

and Mary OZZEVER (c1765-1846)


Peter Lilliot and Mary Ozzever married on 3 May 1789 in Washington, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Peter Lilliot was baptised on 15 November 1761 in Ashurst, Sussex.  He was the son of Peter Lilliot (1732-1803) and Queen Stringer (1737-1828).  He was described as Peter Lilliot, junior in 1797.  He died aged 80 years in West Grinstead and was buried on 19 August 1842 in Ashurst.

Mary Ozzever's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She died aged 81 years in West Grinstead and was buried on 23 September 1846 in Ashurst.

When the 1841 census was recorded the couple were both said to be 75 years old and they were living at Brookwood in West Grinstead, along with 30 year old Henry Lelliott and 40 year old Rebecca Lelliott.  Peter was then an agricultural labourer.  Also living with them at that time was 15 year old, agricultural labourer, William Lilleywhite.

    When the 1841 census was recorded the couple and 3 children were living in Washington and Benjamin was an agricultural labourer.  In 1851 the couple and their son George were living in Comb, Steyning and Benjamin was then a shepherd.
