Walter LINDFIELD (1852-?)

and Margaret VINALL (1851-1880)


Walter Lindfield and Margaret Vinall married by banns on 8 May 1875 in Lower Beeding, Sussex.  He was then a 23 year old bachelor and labourer and she was a 24 year old spinster.  Their fathers were named as Henry Lindfield and William Vinall who were both labourers.  The witnesses to their marriage were Henry Vinall and Louisa Ede.  (They were not my direct ancestors, but I do have distant Lindfield and Vinall ancestors.)

Walter Lindfield was born about 1852 in Lower Beeding.  He was the son of Henry Lindfield (1819-?) and Mary Richardson (1820-?).  When the 1881 census was recorded he was a 28 year old widower and domestic gardener and he was living at ???? Ham Lodge in Lower Beeding.  With him on census night was 72 year old William Carter who was an agricultural labourer.

Margaret Vinall was baptised on 2 June 1851 in Lower Beeding.  She was the daughter of William Vinall (1791-1877) and Ann Woolgar (1808-1874).  At the time of her baptism her father was a bricklayer.  She died aged 29 years and was buried on 9 June 1880 in Lower Beeding.

When the 1891 census was recorded, Walter was a 39 year old agricultural labourer living in Lower Street, Pulborough, along with his 45 year old wife M. A. Lindfield and son 14 year old Harry Lindfield, who had been born in Lower Beeding.


Walter Lindfield and Margaret Vinall had 1 known child:

  1. Annie Margaret Lindfield was born on 24 May 1880 and baptised on 4 July 1880 in Lower Beeding, at which time her father was a gardener.  Annie married Frederick Alfred Tullett in 1904.  (They have their own page.)
