Nathan SILVERSTONE (1801-?)

and Anne OCKINDEN (c1802-1848)

 

Nathan Silverson and Anne Ockinden were married on 1 January 1827 in Patcham, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster.  They were both of Patcham and both made their X marks.  The witnesses were Thomas Silverson (marked) and Ann Mitchel (signed).  They were married by the Officiating Minister S. Clark.

Nathan Silverstone was born on 16 March 1801 in Patcham and baptised on 25 July 1803 at St. Nicholas in Brighton, Sussex.  He was the son of John Silverston (1752-1813) and Elizabeth Friend (c1761-1837).

Anne Ockinden's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She died aged 46 years and was buried on 21 November 1848 in Patcham.  The burial register records her name as Ann Silverson.

When the 1851 census was recorded the family were living at Drove in Patcham and Nathan was a 49 year old widower and farm labourer.  By 1861, 60 year old widower Nathan was an agricultural labourer living in Patcham with his son Charles.  The 1881 on-line census records his name as Matthew Sylvester and he was then living with his daughter Jane at Houndean in the parish of St. Ann's, Lewes.

 

Nathan Silverstone and Anne Ockinden had 8 known children:

  1. Mary Silverson was baptised on 23 December 1827 in Patcham, at which time her father was a labourer of Patcham.

  2. Maria Silverson was baptised on 3 January 1830 in Patcham, at which time her father was a labourer of Patcham.  When the 1851 census was recorded she was living at home with her father and younger brothers.

  3. Henry Silverson was baptised on 13 February 1831 in Patcham, at which time his father was a labourer of Patcham.

  4. John Silverson was baptised on 28 July 1833 in Patcham and buried there on 30 August 1837 aged 4 years.  The burial register records his name as John Silverston.

  5. Jane Silverson was baptised on 28 February 1836 in Patcham, at which time her father was a labourer of Withdean in Patcham.  Her surname in the baptism register had been entered as Sylvester but had been crossed out and amended to Silverson.  As Jane Silvester she married George Breach on 3 September 1859 at All Saints in Lewes, Sussex.  He was then aged 24 years and she 23.  George was the son of Henry Breach.

    George and Jane had 4 known children:

    1. Mary Ann Breach was baptised on 1 September 1860 in Alfriston, Sussex.  She may have married John Browning in the first quarter of 1880 in the Steyning district.  When the 1881 census was recorded John and Mary together with 4 day old daughter Annie E Browning were living at 6 George Street in Portslade, Sussex, but Mary Ann gave her age as 22 and her place of birth as Brighton, so they might not be one and the same.

    2. Henry Breach was born about 1862 in Hamsey, Sussex.  He was a 19 year old tinman living at home when the 1881 census was recorded.

    3. George Breach was born about 1868 in Hamsey, Sussex.  He was a 13 year old scholar in 1881.  George married Annie Elizabeth Jeffery in 1894.  She was born about 1868 in Woodford, Essex.  When the 1901 census was recorded the couple were living in Brighton where George was a journeyman butcher.  By 1901 the couple had 3 known children:

      1. Nellie Breach was born about 1895 in Burgess Hill, Sussex.

      2. Gertrude Ethel Breach was born about 1896 in Burgess Hill (first quarter).

      3. Lily Victoria Breach was born in 1897 in Burgess Hill (third quarter).

    4. Arthur Breach was born about 1877 in Framfield.  He was a 4 year old scholar in 1881.  Arthur married Sarah Jane Baigent in 1900.  When the 1901 census was recorded the couple were living in Hammersmith, London and Arthur was a coachman.  Sarah Jane was born about 1873 in Pulborough, Sussex and was the daughter of Thomas Baigent and Fanny.

    When the 1881 census was recorded the family were living at Houndean in St. Anns, Lewes and George was then a shepherd.  The couple were still living in the parish of St. Anns when the 1901 census was recorded and George was still a shepherd.

  6. Elizabeth Silverson was privately baptised on 24 April 1839 in Patcham, at which time her father was a labourer of With Dean in Patcham.  She was admitted to the Church on 22 May 1842.  The baptism register records her surname as Silvester but this had been crossed out and amended to Silverson.  As Elizabeth Silvester she married William Smart on 17 January 1863 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.  He was then aged 23 years and she was 22.  Their fathers were named as John Smart and Nathan Smart (as per the BIVRI, but I would think it should say Nathan Silvester.)

  7. John Silverstone was baptised on 4 December 1842 in Patcham.

  8. Charles Silverston was born in about 1846 in Patcham (first quarter).  He was baptised aged 6 years on 1 June 1851 at Patcham, at which time his father was a labourer of Patcham.  When the 1861 census was recorded he was a 16 year old carter boy living with his father in Patcham.
