John NYE (c1725-?) and Ann MOORE (1732-?)

John NYE (1739-?) and Ann RIDGE (1737-?)

 

 

It would seem there were 2 couples named John and Ann Nye living in Henfield, Sussex at about the same time.  The first couple married as John Nye and Ann Moore, on 25 April 1750 in Lindfield, Sussex.  The second couple married as John Nye and Ann Ridge, on 3 October 1759 in Henfield.  That John was a bachelor when he married.  The witnesses to their marriage were Henry Wood and John Ratley.   (They were not my direct ancestors.)

I am guessing the elder John Nye was born in the 1720's.

The younger John Nye may have been born on 31 July 1739 and baptised on 24 August 1739 in Henfield, and have been the son of Richard Nye and Mary Broomham who had married on 5 October 1735 in Henfield.  On 3 May 1756 and settlement examination was undertaken by the overseers of Washington parish in respect of a widow with one child Mary Ney nee Broomham.

A John Nye was buried on 19 September 1781 in Henfield - might this have been the elder John?  Another John Nye was buried on 10 September 1802 in Henfield.

Ann More may have been born on 9 December 1732 and baptised on 10 January 1732/3 in Henfield and have been the daughter of John More and Mary.

Ann Ridge may have been baptised on 12 June 1737 in Cowfold, Sussex and have been the daughter of Stephen Ridge and Sarah.

An Ann Nye wife of John Nye was buried on 8 January 1788 in Henfield - might this have been the younger John's wife?

 

John Nye and Ann, x2, had the following children between them:

  1. Ann Moore was the subject of a bastardy order dated 21 April 1750, in which, Richard Nye weaver, John Nye barber and Caleb Hackman gunsmith provided surety.  The order was raised by the overseers of Lindfield parish and also mentioned Pulborough, Henfield and Godalming, Surrey.

  2. John Nye was born on 9 July 1752 and baptised on 15 July 1752 in Henfield.

    John married Lucy Tidy on 5 September 1772 in Woodmancote, Sussex.  John was then said to be a bachelor of the parish of St. Michael's in Lewes, Sussex and Lucy was a spinster.

    John and Lucy had the following children:

    1. Lucy Nye was baptised on 9 September 1774 in Henfield.  The baptism register noted that her father was John Nye the younger, therefore, I assume her grandfather was also a John.

    2. Ann Nye was privately baptised as she was in peril of death on 15 March 1776 in Henfield.  She was received into the church on 21 March 1776.  The baptism register noted that her father was the younger and that he was a glazier.

    3. Mary Nye was privately baptised as she was in peril of death on 5 April 1788 in Henfield.  She was received into the church on 24 April 1778.  It was recorded in the baptism register that her father was John, junior and that he was a glazier.

    4. Susanna Nye was privately baptised as she was in peril of death on 6 January 1780 in Henfield.  She was received into the church on 14 January.  Her father was then described as the younger and he was a glazier.  A Susannah Nye was buried on 11 September 1803 and a Susanna Nye on 15 March 1804, and a Susan Nye on 18 February 1808 , all in Henfield, and all entries in the burial register only recorded a name.

    5. Benjamin Nye was baptised on 30 December 1781 in Henfield.  It was noted that his father as John junior and he was a glazier.  Benjamin was buried in Henfield on 4 January 1787 in Henfield and it was noted in the burial register that he was the son of John and Lucy.

    6. John Nye was baptised on 25 May 1783 in Henfield.

    7. Edward Nye was privately baptised, as he was ill, on 16 August 1787 in Henfield.  He was received into the church on 23 August 1787.  His parents were able to pay the 3d baptism fee.

    8. Benjamin Nye was baptised on 4 April 1790 in Henfield.  His parents were able to pay the 3d baptism fee.

    9. Charlotte Nye was baptised on 19 September 1792 in Henfield.  Her parents were able to pay the 3d baptism fee.  She was buried as an infant on 20 January 1793 in Henfield.

  3. Mary Nye was born on 19 January 1755 and baptised on 29 January 1755 in Henfield.  The Henfield burial register records that a Mary Nye was buried on 8 March 1762.  However, that burial may have referred to her grandmother.  This Mary may have been the mother of an illegitimately born son:

    1. Thomas Nye was baptised on 9 June 1785 in Henfield.  His mother was able to pay the 3d baptism fee.  Thomas may have married Bet Elliot on 11 April 1809 in Henfield, but another Thomas Nye was baptised in Henfield on 26 February 1785 in Henfield, the son of James Nye and Ann Silverson.

  4. William Nye was born 9 December 1756 and baptised on 29 December 1756 in Henfield.

    William married Ann Goddard by banns on 12 March 1782 in Edburton, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor of Henfield and she a spinster of Edburton.

    William and Ann had the following children:

    1. William Nye was baptised on 4 (I think) March 1784 in Henfield.  It was noted in the baptism register that his parents were able to pay the 3d baptism fee.

    2. John Nye was baptised 4 June 1786 in Henfield.  His parents were able to pay the 3d baptism fee.

    3. Mary Ann Nye was baptised on 11 September 1791 in Henfield.  Her parents were able to pay the 3d baptism fee.

    4. Phebe Nye was baptised on 12 January 1794 in Henfield.  Her parents were able to pay the 3d baptism fee.

    5. Sarah Nye was baptised on 1 July 1798 in Henfield.

    6. James Nye was baptised on 25 October 1801 in Henfield.

  5. James Nye was born on 1 March 1758 and baptised on 17 March 1758 in Henfield.  He married Ann Silverson in 1779.  (They have their own page.)

     

    It can be assumed that the above 5 children were the children of John Nye and Ann Moore, but what of the following?

     

  6. Thomas Nye was born on 17 February 1760 and baptised on 14 March 1760 in Henfield.  (Could he have been the son of the younger couple?)

  7. Elizabeth Nye was born on 14 June 1761 and baptised on 16 June 1761 in Henfield.  She was admitted to the church on 5 July 1761.  She was probably buried on 2 August 1761 in Henfield.  (Could she have been the daughter of the elder couple?)

  8. George Nye was born 5 February 1762 and baptised on 19 February 1762 in Henfield.  (Could he have been the son of the younger couple?)

  9. Benjamin Nye was baptised on 30 December 1763 in Henfield.  He died as a child and was buried on 29 October 1765 in Henfield.  (Could he have been the son of the elder couple?)

  10. John Nye was baptised on 23 December 1764 in Henfield.  He may have married Ann Hill or Ann Still by licence on 18 January 1797 in Hurstpierpoint, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was issued on 16 January 1797 and recorded that John was a bachelor and miller of Hurstpierpoint aged 32 years and upwards, whilst Ann was a widow of Hurstpierpoint.  However, he seems to have a younger brother named John, so it would seem likely that this John died young.  (He must have been a son of the younger John, as the elder John's son named John married in 1772.)

  11. Elizabeth Nye was baptised on 21 September 1766 in Henfield.

  12. Phebe Nye was baptised on 26 March 1768 in Henfield and it was noted in the baptism register that she was in peril of death.  She died as an infant and was buried on 30 March 1768 in Henfield.

  13. Richard Nye was baptised on 12 October 1769 in Henfield.  The Henfield burial register records that a Richard Nye was buried on 24 June 1794, but only the name was recorded and nothing help identify which Richard was buried.

    (John born in 1739 was the son of Richard and the 1750 bastardy bond mentions a Richard in association with the elder John.  Might the elder John have also been the son of a Richard, or perhaps the brother of the Richard who was father of the younger John? )

    Richard may have married Mary.

    They had the following child:

    1. Nathaniel Nye was privately baptised on 5 December 1798 in Henfield and received into the church on 10 February 1799.  He died in 1866 (ref. David Gibbs).

      Nathaniel married Louisa Glazebrook (ref. David Gibbs) by banns on 28 October 1820 in Henfield.  They were both then of Henfield and married with parental consent.

      Louisa was baptised on 19 September 1802 in Rottingdean and was the daughter of Leonard Glazebrook and Mary

      When the 1841 census was recorded the family were living in Small Dole, within the parish of Upper Beeding, Sussex.  Nathaniel was then an agricultural labourer.  At that time their next door neighbours were the family of Henry Stealaway.  By 1851 the family had moved back to Henfield and they were living at Pokerlee.  Nathaniel was then a 52 year old agricultural labourer.  Louisa was then 49 years old and she gave her place of birth as Rottingdean.  Also with them on census night was their 5 year old grandson, also named Nathaniel Nye.

      Nathaniel and Louisa had the following children:

      1. Harriet Nye was baptised on 12 May 1822 in Henfield.  When the 1841 census was recorded she was most probably a servant living in part of Eatons, Henfield, along with 9 other servants.  Harriet went to France (ref. David Gibbs).  She married Charles Victor Goudal (or Goudle) of Boulogne sur mer, France in 1856 (ref. David Gibbs).  He was born on 21 October 1831 (ref. David Gibbs).

        Charles and Harriet had a son, Charles Henri Louis Goudal who was born on 21 April 1858 (ref. David Gibbs).

        Harriet died at Boulogne sur mer on 12 January 1869 and her husband remarried and had other children (ref. David Gibbs).

      2. Eliza Nye was baptised on 4/7 January 1824 in Henfield, at which time her father was a labourer.

      3. Esther Nye was baptised on 7 July 1825 in Henfield.  In 1841 she was 15 years old and the eldest of her siblings living in the parental home.

      4. George Nye was baptised on 16 September 1827 in Henfield.  He was 14 years old in 1841.

      5. Charles Nye was baptised on 25 October 1829 in Henfield.  He was 12 years old in 1841.

      6. Elizabeth Nye was baptised on 1 January 1832 in Henfield, at which time her father was a labourer.  In 1841 she was 9 years old.

      7. Mary Nye was baptised on 19 January 1834 in Henfield, at which time her father was a labourer.  In 1841 she was 7 years old.

      8. Henry Nye was born on 23 November 1835 and baptised on 10 January 1836 in Henfield.  He was 5 years old in 1841.  In 1851 he was a 15 year old agricultural labourer and the eldest of his siblings living at home.

      9. William Nye was born about 1838 in Upper Beeding.  He was 3 years old in 1841 and 13 years old in 1851.

  14. John Nye was privately baptised because he was in peril of death on 1 November 1771 in Henfield.  He was received into the church on 10 November 1771.  He may have married Ann Atree by banns on 13 February 1798 in Horsham.  At the time he was a bachelor or Shermanbury and she a spinster of Horsham.  (He must have been a son of the younger John, as the elder John's son named John married in 1772.)

  15. Lydy Nye was baptised on 24 April 1774 in Henfield.

  16. Jane Nye was privately baptised on 8 February 1778 in Henfield and buried there as an infant on 15 February 1778.  (Might Ann Moore have been too old to have been her mother?)
