Solomon Stringer and Mary Cherryman married by banns on 3 June 1805 in West Grinstead, Sussex.  They were both then of West Grinstead.  The witnesses to their marriage were Richard Cherryman and W. Gratwick.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

    Samuel Turle was baptised on 4 September 1803 in Ashurst, Sussex, and was the son of Charles Turle and Lucy Lindfield.  The baptism register noted that his parents were from West Grinstead.

    Lucy may have married Henry Knight by banns on 10 January 1836 in West Grinstead.  The witnesses to their marriage were Lucy Stringer and Edward Freeman.  Or she may have married Caleb Osbourne by banns on 7 February 1837 in West Grinstead.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Gratwick and Edward Freeman.  (A Lucy Stringer was born on 4 December 1810 and baptised on 27 December 1810 in Henfield.  She was the daughter of Thomas Stringer and Mary.)

    Thomas next married Martha Martin, widow on 9 April 1860 at Henfield parish church.  As Martha West she had previously married George Martin on 13 July 1839 in Henfield, by whom she had children.

    Martha was baptised on 29 August 1820 and/or 5 August 1821 in Hefield and was the daughter of John West and Charity Harris.

    1. Thomas Stringer was born on 9 June 1861 in Henfield.  He married twice, firstly to Mary Ann Aldred and then to Caroline Ann Titheridge, nee Prior.  There were children from both marriages.


      Many thanks to Thomas and Caroline's great granddaughter, Caroline Harlow, nee Stringer, for the details about Thomas and his wives and parents.  Caroline also passes on the following:  "Recently my father indicated that Mr. Walter Potter, the famous taxidermist married Ann Stringer and as my grandfather had also lived for a short while in Bramber it was suggested there may be an tenuous connection with our Stringer line.  On closer investigation (through the internet) it would seem he married Ann Stringer Muzzall.  Her mother was Harriet Stringer and her father John Muzzall."

      Thanks to Caroline I went in search of John and Harriet in the 1841 and 1851 census, and as a result was able to put together details of their family.  See above for the family of John Muzzall and Harriet Stringer.
