John PEARSON (1790-1852)

and Charlotte DENYER (1793-1852)

 

All Hallows parish church Woodbeding, circa 1898 - from http://www.westsussexpast.org.uk/pictures/index.htmlJohn Pearson and Charlotte Denyer were my 3x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by banns on 19 August 1814 at the parish church of All Hallows in Woolbeding, Sussex.  His name was then recorded in the marriage register as John Pearcy.  John was a bachelor and Charlotte a spinster and they were both of Woolbeding.  The witnesses to the marriage were John Knight, Anne Denyer and Richard Stempson.

St. Mary's Bepton, circa 1910 - from http://www.westsussexpast.org.uk/pictures/index.htmlJohn Pearson was baptised on 4 July 1790 in Bepton, Sussex.  He was the son of John Pearson (1759-1839) and Lydia Randall (1763-1806).  He was a brickmaker on Bepton Common.  John died aged 62 years and was buried on 26 November 1852 in Bepton by the name of John Pearson

When the 1841 census was recorded on 6 June the couple and 5 children were living on Bepton Common.  John was then said to be a 50 year old brickburner and Charlotte's age was recorded as 45 years.  In 1851, 60 year old John Pearson was living on Bepton Common as a retired brickmaker along with his wife and youngest two children.  The family then also had two unmarried lodgers, namely George Collins and James Collins who were both aged 26 years and both agricultural labourers, born in Bepton.  George Collins married Lucy Holder on 11 September 1852 in Bepton and Lucy was the sister of Prudence Holder who is mentioned below.
