James STONER (c1791-1871)

and Susanna JENNER (1791-1873)

 

James Stoner and Susanna Jenner married by licence on 2 September 1815 in East Grinstead, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was issued on the 1 September 1815 by the Archdeaconry of Lewes which noted that they were both aged 22 years and upwards.  He was a bachelor of East Grinstead and she was a spinster of the same place.  Surety for the licence was provided by James himself and Robert Miles a farmer of East Grinstead.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

James Stoner may have been born about 1791 in Cowfold.  He died aged 80 years and was buried on 24 May 1871 in Cowfold.  I have not found a James Stoner baptised in Cowfold 1791 +/- 5 years.  Might he have been baptised on 17 February 1788 in Horsham, Sussex, the son of Stephen Stonyer and Ann Marchant?

Susannah Jenner was baptised on 24 April 1791 in East Grinstead, Sussex.  She was the daughter of William Jenner and Mary.  Susan died aged 84 years and was buried on 10 November 1873 in Cowfold.

The 1841 census records his name as John Stoner and he was living with his wife Susan at Burnt House in Cowfold along with children Fillid, Philip, Thomas and Daniel.  The couple were both said to be 45 years old and he was a farm labourer.

In 1851 the couple and 3 sons were living at Burnt House, Cowfold.  James was a 60 year old agricultural labourer and Susan was 61 and they both said they were born in Cowfold.

The 1871 census records the couple were both aged 80 years.  They were living at Burnt House in Cowfold along with 2 of their children and 73 year old widow and lodger Mary Jenden.  James then gave his place of birth as Cowfold and Susan as East Grinstead.

 

James Stoner and Susanna Jenner had 7 known children:

  1. James Stoner was baptised on 31 March 1816 in East Grinstead.  He was an unmarried 36 year old agricultural labourer in 1851 and living with his parents.  In 1871 he was an unmarried 55 year old labourer living with his parents.

  2. Henry Stoner was baptised on 28 June 1818 in Cowfold.

    Henry married Naomi Constable by banns on 28 November 1840 in Horsham.  He was then a bachelor and labourer and she was a spinster and minor.  Their fathers were named as James Stoner and James Constable and they were both labourers.  The witnesses to their marriage were James Stoner and R. Collins.

    Naomi was baptised on 6 July 1823 in Horsham, and was the daughter of James Constable (c1775-1863) and Sarah Stoner (1787-1863).

    2. George Stoner was baptised on 29 September 1844 in Cowfold.

  3. Philadelphia Stoner was baptised on 13 August 1820 in Cowfold.  The 1841 census records that she was 20 year old Fillid Stoner and she was living with her parents.

  4. Rebecca Stoner was baptised on 26 August 1822 in Cowfold.  She died aged 51 years and was buried on 24 April 1873 in Cowfold.  When the 1851 census was recorded she was most likely to have been an unmarried 30 year old house servant in the home of William Pronger at Stable House in Lower Beeding.  Her place of birth was then given as Beeding.  Also part of the household was 15 year old Mark Stoner.  In 1871 she was said to be a 44 year old spinster and she was living with her parents.

  5. Philip Stoner was baptised on 22 August 1824 in Cowfold.  He was a 15 year old farm labourer in 1841.  In 1851 he was an unmarried 27 year old agricultural labourer and he was living with his parents.

    Philip married Jane Pierce on 9 February 1859 in Cowfold.  He was a bachelor and labourer and she was a spinster.  Their fathers were named as James Stoner and James Pierce who were both labourers.  The witnesses to their marriage were Philip Deudney and Elizabeth Deudney.
