John MURRAM (1799-1870)

and Elizabeth HUGHES (1803-1852)

 

John Myram and Elizabeth Hughes married by banns on 15 July 1821 at the parish church of St. Mary's in Pulborough, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster.  The witnesses to their marriage were James Hughes and James Overington.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  John's father was the nephew of my 5x great grandmother, Hannah Miriam.)

John Murram was baptised on 17 November 1799 in Pulborough.  He was the son of William Miriam (1773-1822) and Sarah Carter (1774-1848).  He died on 6 April 1870 (thanks to Chrissy for this date) aged 70 years and was buried on 11 April 1870 in Pulborough.  The burial register recorded his name as John Mirrum.  His death certificate records that Dinah Penfold was present at his death and registered his death, at which time she made her X mark (thanks to Chrissy for this data).

Elizabeth Hughes was baptised on 7 August 1803 in Pulborough.  She was the daughter of James Hughes (1773-?) and Rhoda Dalton.  She died aged 49 years and was buried on 4 February 1852 in Pulborough.  Her name was recorded as Elizabeth Murram in the burial register.  Her father died before 1819, as on 15 February 1819 in Pulborough, her brother James Hughes aged 19 years, married 16 year old Sarah Batchelor.  He did so with the consent of his widowed mother, Rhoda Hughes of Billingshurst.

When the 1841 census was recorded the family were living at Codmore Hill in Pulborough and John was an agricultural labourer.  Also living with them at that time was 70 year old Sarah Murrum and 25 year old Thomas Murrum.  The 1851 census records their surname as Murram and the family were living at, what looks like, Col Windham 295.  In 1861 John Miriam and his daughter Caroline were living at No.428 in Pulborough and he was a 62 year old agricultural labourer.
