William LELLIOTT (1751-1825)

and Elizabeth CHANDLER (c1755-1778)

William Lelliott and Elizabeth Chandler married on 11 May 1776 in Henfield, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Muzzell and Mary Vinall.  There were no known children from this marriage.  William next married Jenny Wood on 20 October 1784 in Henfield, Sussex.  William was then a widower and Jenny a spinster.  The witnesses to their marriage were William Wickham and William Vinall.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

William Llliot was born on 19 July 1851 and baptised 4 August 1751 in Henfield.  He was the son of William Lelliott (1725-1766) and Jane Slatter (c1730-?).  William was buried on 12 January 1825 in Henfield.

Elizabeth Chandler's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 28 May 1778 in Henfield.  The burial register recorded that she was the late wife of William Lilliot.

Jenny Wood was baptised on 12 May 1761 in Twineham, Sussex.  She was the daughter of John Wood and Keziah Walder.  Jenny died on 16 November 1841 in Henfield.

In 1871 she was an 85 year old widow of no occupation, lodging in the home of 87 year old widow Mary Mitchell in Martin's Row, Henfield.  (As Mary Goddard she may have married James Mitchell on 9 October 1803 in Upper Beeding.)
