    As Mary Ann Stoner she married Henry Lindield by banns on 19 December 1824 in Cowfold.  He was then from Nuthurst.  The witnesses to their marriage were James Langford and William Hill.

    In 1841 the couple and 7 children (Sarah, James, Ann, Mary, Daniel, William and Peter) were living at Grubbs in Cowfold.  Henry was then a 39 year old farm labourer and Marin was 38.  Their surname was recorded as Linfield.  Also with them was 73 year old agricultural labourer, Philip Stoner.

    When the 1851 census was recorded the couple and 2 children (Peter and Jane) were living at Manningsheath in the parish of Nuthurst.  Henry was a 49 year old agricultural labourer and Mary Ann was 47.  He gave his place of birth as Nuthurst and she as Lower Beeding.

    2. William Lindfield was baptised on 19 November 1826 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted his father was a schoolmaster.  In 1841 he may have been 14 year old James Linfield.

    4. Ann Linfield was born about 1829.  She was 12 years old in 1841.

    5. Mary Ann Lindfield was baptised on 15 July 1832 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted her father was a schoolmaster.  She was 8 year old Mary Linfield in 1841.

    6. Daniel Henry Lindfield was baptised on 16 November 1832 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted his father was a schoolmaster.  He was 6 years old in 1841.

    7. William Lindfield was baptised on 13 August 1837 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted his father was a schoolmaster.  He was 3 years old in 1841.

    8. Peter Lindfield was baptised on 20 October 1839 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted his father was a schoolmaster.  When the 1841 census was recorded he was a year old.  He was 11 years old in 1851.

    9. Mary Lindfield was baptised on 28 June 1840 in Cowfoold.  The baptism register noted her father was a labourer.

      Mary may have married Thomas Parsons on 9 April 1863 in Cowfold.  He was a bachelor and labourer and she was a spinster.  Their fathers were named as John Parsons and Henry Linfield who were both labourers.  The witnesses to their marriage were James Richardson and Fanny Richardson.

    10. Henry Lindfield was baptised on 5 September 1841 in Cowfold.  The baptism register noted his father was a labourer.

    11. Jane Lindfield was baptised on 2 March 1848 in Nuthurst.  She was 4 years old in 1851.

  8. Elizabeth Stoner was baptised on 16 September 1804 in Cowfold.

  9. Daniel Stoner was baptised on 3 February 1805 in Cowfold.

The baptism dates of the last 2 children seem a little close.  Might either of them have been an illegitimate grandchild, which Philip and Frances baptised as their own?  Or might they have been baptised as toddlers rather than infants?
