James STREETER (1778-1825)

and Ann ALFREY (1777-1843)

 

James Streeter and Ann Alfrey were my 5x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by banns on 15 January 1797 at the parish church of St. Nicholas in Brighton, Sussex.  They were both then of Brighton.  James was a bachelor and signed his name.  Ann was a spinster and made her X mark.  The witnesses were James Beal (signed) and Ann Streeter (mark).  Might Ann have been James's sister?

James Streeter was baptised on 17 April 1778 in Crawley, Sussex.  He was the son of James Streeter (1751-1820) and Elizabeth Hards (1750-1812).  James died aged 49 years and was buried on 4 December 1825 in Brighton.  The burial register noted that he was of Church Street.  On 21 September 1806 he was a witness to the marriage of his brother-in-law, James Allfrey.  In 1815 and 1817 James was described as a painter and glazier.

Ann Alfrey was baptised on 21 February 1777 in Henfield, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Philip Alfrey (1758-1835) and Mary Botting (c1754-1833).  She died aged 66 years and was buried on 30 March 1843 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  At the time of her death she was living at Mount Sion Place, Brighton.  When the 1841 census was recorded she was living in Mount Sion Place with the family of William and Mary Parker.

 

James Streeter and Ann Alfrey may have had 10 children:

  1. Ann Streeter, my 4x Great Grandmother, was born on 19 November and baptised on 31 December 1797 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  She married George Back in 1817.  (They have their own page.)

  2. Mary Streeter was born on 1 October and baptised on 8 December 1799 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  She may have died young as she seems to have had a younger sister also named Mary baptised in 1807.  But, from the census details it would seem Mary married William Parker on 28 July 1821 in Brighton.

    William may have been born on 6 December 1799 and baptised on 30 January and/or 4 May 1800 in Brighton, and was the son of Thomas Parker and Sarah Perren.

    The 1841 census records that William was a bricklayer and both he and Mary were 40 years old.  In 1851 the family were living at 12 Mount Sion Place, Brighton.  William and Mary were both 51 years old and both had been born in Brighton.  William was still a bricklayer.  By 1861 the family had moved to 45 Lennox Street, Brighton and William was still a bricklayer.  William was still bricklaying at the time of the 1871 census and living at 45 Lennox Street along with his 47 year old wife, Mary Ann who was a cook.  She gave her place of birth as Hastings.  Also with them was a 10 year old grandson, Harry James who had also been born in Hastings, and an 8 year old granddaughter, Anne Parker, who had been born in Brighton.

    William and Mary had the following children:

    1. William Parker was baptised on 21 November 1824 in Brighton.  The baptism register noted that his father was a labourer from King Street.

    2. James Parker was baptised on 22 October 1826 in Brighton.  The baptism register noted that his father was a bricklayer from King Street.  He was 15 years old at the time of the 1841 census.

    3. Henry Parker was baptised on 2 August 1829 in Brighton.  The baptism register noted that his father was a bricklayer from King Street.  He was 12 years old in 1841.

    4. Thomas Parker was baptised on 1 April 1832 in Brighton.  The baptism register noted that his father was a bricklayer from Bread Street.  In 1841 he was 9 years old.

    5. Joseph Parker was baptised on 19 April 1835 in Brighton.  The baptism register noted that his father was a bricklayer from Mount Sion Place.  He was 6 years old in 1841.  In 1851 he was a 16 year old mason's apprentice and the eldest of his siblings living at home.  He was an unmarried 26 year old stone mason in 1861 and living at home with his parents.

    6. William Parker was born about 1838 in Brighton.  In 1841 he was 3 years old.  He was a 12 year old scholar in 1851.  In 1861 he was an unmarried 22 year old carrier, living with his parents.

    7. Sarah Anne Parker was baptised on 24 April 1842 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.  In 1851 she was a 9 year old scholar.  She was 19 years old in 1861 and living at home with her parents and elder brothers.

  3. John Streeter was born on 30 September and baptised on 20 December 1801 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  He may have died young, as there may have been a younger brother also named John.

  4. James Streeter was baptised on 14 August 1803 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  He died aged 44 years and was buried on 1 February 1848 in Brighton.  The burial register noted he was of Bread Street.

    James may have married twice.  Firstly to Sarah.  This marriage may have been to Sarah Tullett on 26 May 1822 in Horsham, Sussex.  James was a bachelor of Horsham and signed his name, whilst Sarah was a spinster of Horsham and made her X mark.  The witnesses were John Tullett and Mary Tullett, who both signed their names.

    Sarah may have been baptised on 13 September 1801, the daughter of William Tullett (1770-?) and Ann Streeter, or on 29 May 1803 the daughter of John Tullett (c1760-1806) and Mary Streeter (1774-1848).  Both baptisms took place in Slaugham, Sussex.

    James and Sarah had 1 known son:

    1. James Streeter was baptised on 29 September 1822 in Brighton.  The baptism register noted that his father was a painter from Church Street.  I assume he died young.

    As a widower, James may have married Mary Rolls by licence on 27 June 1826 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  Mary was a spinster.  They were both of Brighton and both signed their names.  The witnesses were James Hoskins, William Perren (that's what it looks like), Mary Holden and Sarah Miles.  All the witnesses signed their names.

    Mary may have been born about 1802 in Wareham, Dorset.

    When the 1841 census was recorded the couple and 6 children were living in Clarence Place, Brighton.  James was a 35 year old painter and Mary was 40.  Also with the family was 60 year old cook, Mary Foster.

    In 1851, Mary was a 47 year old widow and lodging house keeper and she was living at 2 Camelford Street, Brighton.  She then gave her place of birth as Wareham in Dorset.  Also with her on census night were 4 of her children.

    4. Henry Streeter was baptised on 10 November 1833 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  The baptism register noted that his father was a plumber from Grenville Place.  He was 7 years old in 1841.  In 1851 he was a 17 year old ?osins? assistant.  When the 1901 census was recorded he may have been a 69 year old house decorator living in Brighton.

    5. Mary Agnes Streeter was baptised on 27 September 1835 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  The baptism register noted that her father was a plumber from Grenville Place.  She was 5 years old in 1841.

    6. James John Streeter was baptised on 10 September 1837 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  The baptism register noted that his father was a painter from Grenville Place.  He was 3 years old in 1841.  In 1851 he was a 13 year old scholar.

    7. John Streeter was baptised on 5 January 1840 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  At the time of the 1841 census he was a year old.  In 1851 he was an 11 year old scholar.

    As a widow, Mary Streeter married Joseph Walls on 12 November 1857 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.  She was then aged 55 years and named her father as Charles Rolls.  Joseph was 59 years old and the son of Joseph Walls.

  5. John Streeter seems to have been baptised twice, firstly on 10 March 1805 and then on 14 April 1805, both times at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  (Another John Streeter was baptised in Brighton in 1804.)

    John married Mary Cathover on 14 November 1825 in Hove, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster.

    Mary Clara Kalthoeber was born about 1808/9 in the parish of St. Ann's in London.

    When the 1851 census was recorded the couple and 5 children were living at 5 Bread Street, Brighton.  John was a 46 year old stonemason's labourer and Mary was 42.  He gave his place of birth as Brighton, whilst she was born in the parish of St. Anne's in Middlesex.  Also with the couple was they 20 year old daughter-in-law, Jane Streeter.

      Thomas married Harriet Bridger on 16 April 1865 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.

      Harriet was born about 1844 in Brighton and was the daughter of George Bridger.

      The 1901 census index records that a 57 year old Harriett Streeter was a laundress living in Brighton.

      Thomas and Harriet had the following children:

      1. Clara Streeter was born about 1866 in Brighton.

      2. Fanny Streeter was baptised on 3 February 1868 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.

      3. Thomas Streeter was born on 27 June 1871 in Brighton.  He died on 13 February 1919.  Thomas married Elizabeth Washer

      7. Alice Streeter was born in 1883 in Brighton.

      8. Harriett Streeter was born in 1891 in Brighton.

      When the 1881 census was recorded the family were living at 10 Bread Street, Brighton.  Thomas was then a carpenter and Harriet a laundress.  Also living with them at that time was their 1 year old granddaughter Clara Smith.

    9. William Streeter was baptised on 8 June 1845 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  In 1851 he was a 6 year old scholar.

      William married Catherine Priddis on 6 July 1868 at St. Nicholas in Brighton.

      Catherine was born about 1848 in Brighton and was the daughter of Henry Priddis.

    10.

  6. Mary Streeter was baptised on 27 September 1807 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  Might her name have been incorrectly recorded in the baptism register as she appears to have had an elder sister also named Mary who married in 1821.

  7. Elizabeth Streeter was baptised on 8 April 1810 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  She married Charles Ewer by licence on 25 May 1836 in Brighton.  He was then a widower and she a spinster.  They were both over 21 years of age and both of Brighton.

  8. Henry Streeter was baptised on 4 October 1812 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.

  9. Fanny Streeter was baptised on 1 January 1815 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  At the time of her baptism the family living in Church Street, Brighton and her father was a painter and glazier.

  10. Thomas Streeter was baptised on 15 June 1817 at St. Nicholas, Brighton.  At the time of his baptism the family were living in Church Street, Brighton and his father was a painter and glazier.

 

 

In 1813 a John Streeter, a glazier, and wife Mary had a daughter baptised in Brighton.  As James was also a Glazier, could John and James have been brothers?

 

Ann Alfreyís brother James Alfrey was also a resident of Church Street between at least 1814 and 1826.

 

A Henry Streeter (1731-?) married Frances White (1731-?) in 1758, Slaugham, Sussex and they had 5 known children baptised in Worth, Sussex, but not a James or John or Ann, although there were gaps between the baptisms of their children.  And, given that James and Ann named 2 children Henry and Fanny, could there be a connection, or was it just a coincidence?
