Richard NYE (1748-?)

and Elizabeth BONIFACE (c1750-?)


Richard Nye and Elizabeth Boniface married on 11 August 1776 in Horsham, Sussex.  He was then a husbandman and bachelor of Henfield and she was a spinster of Henfield.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Richard Nye was born on 19 June 1748 and baptised on 3 July 1748 in Henfield, Sussex.  He was the son of Richard Nye and Mary Broomham.  The Henfield burial register records that a Richard Nye was buried on 24 June 1794, but only the name was recorded and nothing helpful to identify which Richard was buried.

Elizabeth Boniface's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.


Richard Nye and Elizabeth Boniface had 8 known children:

  1. Phebe Nye was privately baptised as she was in peril of death on 16 September 1778 in Henfield.  She was received into the church on 18 October 1778.

  2. Martha Nye was baptised 31 December 1780 in Henfield.  She married William Lelliott in 1803.  (They have their own page.)

  3. James Nye was baptised on 2 March 1783 in Henfield.

  4. George Nye was baptised on 13 March 1785 in Henfield.  It was noted in the baptised register that his parents were paupers and thus exempt from paying the baptism fee.

  5. Frances Nye was baptised on 16 July 1787 in Henfield.  It was noted that her parents were paupers and unable to pay the baptism fee.  She married William Lelliot in 1810.  (They have their own page.)

  6. Richard Nye was baptised on 9 May 1790 in Henfield.  His parents were unable to pay the baptism fee.

  7. Noah Nye was baptised on 21 April 1793 in Henfield.  His parents were able to pay the 3d baptism fee.

  8. Barbary Nye was baptised on 20 March 1795 in Henfield.
