and Martha NYE (1780-1850)
William Lellyet and Martha Nye married on 30 April 1803 in
Edburton, Sussex. (They were not my direct ancestors. William
was the nephew of my 5x Great Grandfather, Samuel Lillyott.)
William Lellyett was baptised on 11
May 1777 in Woodmancote, Sussex. He was the son of
(1737-?) and Ann
Thorpe. In 1851, William
was 75 years old and living alone in Poynings Street and he was an
agricultural labourer. When the 1861 census was recorded, William was an 84
year old widower and agricultural labourer living at Hale Green, Edburton,
in the home of his daughter Sarah and her husband.

1780 in Henfield, Sussex. She was the daughter of
and Elizabeth Boniface.
Martha died aged 71 years and was buried on 3 November 1850 in Poynings. Martha's sister
Nye (1787-1861) also married a
William Lelliott (1787-1839).
The 1841 census records that the couple were living in Poynings Street,
Poynings. William was then a 65 year old agricultural labourer and
Martha was 60. Also at home on census night was 24 year old Richard,
Eliza 20 and George 9. They were then living next door to the family
William Lellyett and
Martha Nye had 9 known children:
Frances Lelliot was baptised on 17 February 1804 in Poynings,
In the baptism register her father's name was recorded as James, which I
believe was an error.
As Frances Lelliatt she married John
Barker Muzzell by banns on 6 December 1823 in Poynings. He was
then of Newtimber, Sussex and she of Poynings. The witnesses to the
marriage were Henry Barker Muzzell and Maria Fuller.
John was baptised on 3 March 1805 in Newtimber and was the son of
Catherine Muzzell (1779-?).

He married his cousin Sarah Anne Barker Muzzel on 25 May 1838 in
Newtimber. She was baptised as Sarah Ann Barker on 27 March
1831 in Newtimber and was the daughter of Henry Barker Muzzell
(1806-?) and Ann. When the 1881 census was recorded the family

was the daughter of
William Lelliott (1787-1839) and
Nye (1787-1861). In 1851 and 1881 census their surname
was recorded as Barker. In 1851 they were living at Southover in
Hurstpierpoint where Henry was a gardener. Also with them on
census night was 19 year old visitor Sarah Lelliott who was a
schoolmistress. In 1881 the family were living in Railway Cottage
in Keymer, Sussex and Henry was a signalman. Henry and Mary had 5

William Barker Muzzle was baptised on 13 December 1835 in
Newtimber. However, his name was recorded as John in the baptism
