Philip STONER (1781-1858)

and Elizabeth BLAND (1777-1854)

 

Philip Stoner and Elizabeth Bland married by banns on 27 December 1802 in Cowfold, Sussex.  They were both then said to be of Cowfold.  The witnesses to their marriage were Maria Vinall and William Hills.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Philip Stoner was baptised on 23 September 1781 in Shermanbury, Sussex.  He was the son of Robert Stoner (1742-?) and Mary Stenning.  Philip died aged 79 years in Horsham Union Workhouse, as per the burial register and was buried on 26 January 1858 in Lower Beeding.

Elizabeth Bland was baptised on 13 July 1777 in Cowfold, Sussex.  She was the daughter of John Bland and Ann Grover.  Elizabeth died aged 78 years and was buried on 21 January 1854 in Lower Beeding.

On 5 November 1803, Philip under went a settlement examination.  He was then a labourer married to Elizabeth with 10 week old son John.  He was born in Shermanbury, but his parents settled in Nuthurst.

When the 1841 census was recorded the couple were living on Knowles Farm in Upper Beeding.  Philip's age was then recorded as 60 and Elizabeth's as 65.  His occupation looks like shippend (could that be shepherd?).  In 1851, the couple were living at Newells in Lower Beeding.  Phillip was a 72 year old pauper and his place of birth was recorded as Shermanbury.  Elizabeth was 75 and her place of birth was given as Cowfold.  Their son Henry was also living with them and his occupation was given as shipyard labourer - might this have been Philip's occupation in 1841?

 

Philip Stoner and Elizabeth Bland had 8 known children:

  1. John Stoner was born about September 1803.  He was 10 weeks old on 5 November 1803.

  2. Thomas Stoner was baptised on 3 August 1806 in Cowfold.

    Mary married William Packham on 2 May 1830 in Itchingfield, Sussex.

    William was baptised on 30 March 1806 in Clayton, Sussex and was the son of Henry Packham (1776-1853) and Barbara Richardson (1781-1817).  He died/was buried on 9 May 1865 in Portslade.

    At the time of the 1841 census, the couple and 4 children were living in Wickham Cottage in Clayton.  William was a 35 year old agricultural labourer and Mary's age was recorded as 30 years.  When the 1851 census was recorded the couple and 4 children were living in Portslade, Sussex.  William was then a 46 year old agricultural labourer and said he was born in Clayton.  Mary was 43 and her place of birth was given as Nuthurst.
