William LILLIOT (1777-?)

and Mary HAMMOND (c1780-?)


Holy Sepulchre, Warminghurst, from: Lilliot and Mary Hammond married on 17 May 1804 at the parish church of Holy Sepulchre in Warminghurst, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  William was the great nephew of my 6x great grandfather.)

William Liliot was privately baptised on 23 October 1777 in Ashurst, Sussex.  He was the son of Peter Lilliot (1732-1803) and Queen Stringer (1737-1828).

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

When the 1841 census was recorded William and Mary were living in Washington, Sussex, along with his elder brother Richard Lelliott.  William was then earning his living as an agricultural labourer.  William was still living in Washington in 1851 and he was then a 73 year old widower and a mole catcher.


William Lilliot and Mary Hammond had 6 known children:

  1. Mary Lilliot was baptised on 9 June 1805 in Ashurst.

  2. William Lilliot was baptised on 5 April 1807 in Ashurst.  He married Elizabeth Stenning in 1834.  (They have their own page.)

  3. Sarah Lilliot was baptised on 23 April 1809 in Ashurst.

  4. John Lilliott was baptised on 26 May 1811 in Ashurst.  He died aged 83 years and his death was registered as John Lelliott in the first quarter of 1895 in the Thakeham registration district.

    John married Eleanor Lilliott in the fourth quarter of 1845 in the Thakeham registration district.

    When the 1861 census was recorded the couple were living at Toll Gate in Washington, Sussex.  In 1871 they were at Longberry, Warminghurst, Sussex and John was a woodman.  They were still at Longberry in 1881.  The 1891 census records that the couple were living on Heath Common in Warminghurst along with 62 year old visitor, Jane Lelliott who was a widow.

    Eleanor was baptised on 26 June 1803 in Ashurst and was the daughter of Peter Lilliot (1761-1842) and Mary Ozzever (c1765-1846).  She died aged 88 years and her death was registered in the second quarter of 1891 in the Thakeham registration district.

  5. Ann Lelliott was baptised on 19 September 1813 in Ashurst.

  6. Edward Lilliot was baptised on 17 September 1815 in Ashurst.  He married Jane Gocher in 1837.  (They have their own page.)
