James ROBINSON (1752-?)

and Elizabeth (?-?)

 

James Robinson and Elizabeth married before or about 1785 and possibly in or near West Chilington or Pulborough, Sussex.  The Sussex marriage index records a James Robinson and Elizabeth Stetherfield married on 27 March 1777 at All Saints, Hastings, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

James Roberson may have been baptised on 5 January 1752 in Billingshurst, Sussex, the son of Richard Roberson and Ann, or on 12 April 1752 in Billingshurst, the son of John Roberson and Jane.  The 1841 census recorded that 91 year old James Robinson was living in the home of his 35 year old daughter Hannah Cragg, a shopkeeper, at Broadford Bridge, West Chiltington.  He stated he had been born in Sussex.

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

A settlement examination and certificate was issued on 26 January 1776 to James Robinson a farm worker of Billingshurst, enabling him to settle in the parish of Beeding (this has been taken from an index and I have not seen the original document, which may give more details).

 

James Robinson and Elizabeth had 8 or 9 known children:

  1. James Robinson may have been part of this family.

    James married twice.  Firstly to Mary Matthews by banns on 7 June 1808 in West Chiltington.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of West Chiltington.  The witnesses to their marriage were Lulse Lathy and Emma Hammond.

    James and Mary had the following children:

    1. Caroline Robinson was baptised on 2 April 1809 in West Chiltington.

    2. George Robinson was baptised on 14 July 1811 in West Chiltington.  He was buried on 12 May 1812.

    3. Mary Robinson was baptised on 27 February 1814 in West Chiltington.

    As a widower James next married Elizabeth Charman by banns on 4 February 1819 in West Chiltington.  He was a widower and she a spinster and they were both of West Chiltington.  The witnesses to their marriage were Harry Charman and Sarah Charman.

    James and Elizabeth had the following children:

    1. Sarah Robinson was baptised on 18 October 1819 in West Chiltington.

    2. Ellen Robinson was born on 1 December 1822 and was baptised on 19 January 1823 in West Chiltington.  She was buried on 29 June 1826.

    3. James Robinson was baptised on 10 August 1826 in West Chiltington.

  2. Sarah Robinson was baptised on 5 May 1785 in West Chiltington.

    Sarah may have married Jesse Upfield on 21 August 1803 in Pulborough.  She was then said to be of Billingshurst and he of Pulborough.  The witnesses to their marriage were Sarah Duke and James Robinson.

  3. Elizabeth Robinson was baptised on 15 April 1787 in Pulborough.

  4. William Robinson was baptised on 27 April 1788 in West Chiltington.  The baptism register noted his parents as James and Ann, but I think this was probably an error.  William married Charlotte Tugwell in 1814.  (They have their own page.)

  5. Harry Robinson was baptised on 18 April 1791 in West Chiltington.

    As Henry Robinson he may have married Katherine Ryan by banns on 22 March 1819 in Billingshurst.

    Also, as Henry Robinson, widower, he may have married Elizabeth Standen by banns on 22 December 1832 in West Chiltington.  She was a widow and they were both of West Chiltington.  The witnesses to their marriage were James Sergeant and Emma Serjeant.

    Henry and Elizabeth had the following children:

    1. Emily Robinson was baptised on 2 October 1831 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted her father was a labourer.

    2. Job Robinson was baptised on 8 September 1833 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted his father was a labourer.

  6. George Robinson was baptised on 4 August 1793 in Pulborough.

  7. Charles Robinson was baptised on 12 July 1795 in Pulborough.

  8. Edward Robinson was baptised on 29 July 1798 in Pulborough.

    Edward married Ann Potter by banns on 11 June 1821 in Shipley, Sussex.  They were both then of Shipley.  The witnesses to their marriage were Stephen Potter and Hannah Robinson.

    Edward and Ann had the following children:

    1. Priscilla Robinson was baptised on 26 December 1824 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted her father was a butcher.  She died aged 6 months and was buried on 16 June 1825 in Billingshurst.

    3. Elizabeth Robinson was baptised on 6 July 1828 in Billingshurst.  The baptism register noted her father was a butcher.  She died aged 6 months and was buried on 8 September 1828 in Billingshurst.

    In 1851 Edward was a 52 year old master butcher and living in Billingshurst village along with his 54 year old wife Lucy, 13 year old nephew Edward Cragg who was an errand boy and 12 year old servant Nanny Nicholson.  Lucy was born in Warnham.

  9. Hannah Robinson was baptised on 15 March 1801 in West Chiltington.

    Hannah married Peter Miles by banns on 8 January 1822 in West Chiltington.  She was a spinster and he bachelor.  The witnesses to their marriage were Hezekra Miles and Zellah Miles.

    Hannah next married Henry Cragg by banns on 28 January 1830 in Pulborough.  The witnesses to their marriage were Henry Killick and Sarah Dendy.

    When the 1841 census was recorded Hannah along with her 4 children and father were living at Broadford Bridge, West Chiltington.  She was then said to be a 35 year old shopkeeper.

    Henry and Hannah had the following children:
