William ROBINSON (1788-1881)

and Charlotte TUGWELL (1793-1840)

 

William Robinson and Charlotte Tugwell married by banns on 14 August 1814 in Pulborough, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster.  The witnesses to their marriage were James Robinson and Amy Hammond.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

William Robinson was baptised on 27 April 1788 in West Chiltington, Sussex.  He was the son of James Robinson (1752-?) and Elizabeth.  William died aged 92 years and his death was registered in the first quarter of 1881 in the Thakeham registration district.  The 1841 census recorded that 50 year old William was living at Codmore Hill, Pulborough along with 2 children, George and Charlotte, and 20 year old servant Sarah Blunden.  William was then a carpenter and said he was born in Sussex.  The 1861 census recorded that William was a 71 year old retired carpenter, born in Pulborough and that he was then lodging at the Rose & Crown in Pulborough.  He was still living at the Rose & Crown Beershop, Codmore Hill in 1871 and he was then an 83 year old widower and carpenter.  His place of birth was then given as West Chiltington.  He was living with the family of his daughter Caroline.

Charlotte Tugwell was baptised on 24 February 1793 in Warnham, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Charles Tugwell and Sarah Pollard.  Charlotte died aged 48 years and was buried on 12 November 1840 in Pulborough.

(Sarah Blunden was baptised on 7 September 1817 in Pulborough, the illegitimate daughter of Elizabeth Blunden.  As Elizabeth Tugwell she had married James Blunden on 15 April 1805 in Pulborough, but it appears he left her, as on 18 June 1820, Elizabeth had another daughter baptised in Pulborough, Lucy Sayers Blunden, and the baptism register noted that Lucy was also illegitimate and that Elizabeth was the wife of James Blunden, a labourer.  Elizabeth died aged 57 years and was buried on 29 March 1844 in Pulborough, therefore, she was born about 1787.  As Betty Tugwell she was baptised on 30 April 1786 in Warnham, Sussex, the daughter of Charles Tugwell and Sarah Pollard.)
