and Mary ANDREW (1778-1843)
Willard and Mary Andrew married by banns on 20
October 1806 in Upper Beeding, Sussex. He was a bachelor and she a
spinster. The witnesses to their marriage were Richard Andrew
and Frances Andrew. (They were not my direct
Willard was born about 1780. He died aged 74 years and was
buried in 1854 in Capel, Surrey.
was baptised on 18 September 1778 in Horsham, Sussex. She was the
daughter of John Andrew and Sarah Longhurst.
She died aged 65 years and was buried in 1843 in Capel.
When the 1841
census was recorded the couple were living at Roughey Place in Horsham,
Sussex. They were both said to be 61 years old, both born in Sussex
and Charles was an agricultural labourer.
Charles Willard and Mary
Andrew had at least 4 known children:
Willard was baptised on 18 September 1809 in Upper Beeding.
He may have been the
Charles Willard who married
Sarah Berwich in
1839. (They have their own page.)
Willard was born on 5 August 1810 and baptised on 2 December
1810 in Ifield, Sussex. Robert most probably married
Eliza Bowers in
1832. (They have their own page.)
Willard was baptised on 14 March 1812 in Ifield. She may
have been the Mary
Willard who married
Joseph Willard in
1836. (They have their own page.) If so, Joseph was probably
the son of James Willard and Mary Elliott.
However, Joseph's wife was said to have been born sometime between 1813
and 1815, so she may have been the daughter of James and Mary and Joseph
the son of Charles and Mary.
Willard may have been part of this family. She may have
been born about 1815 in Horsham (as per the 1851 census) or about 1817
in Ifield (as per the 1881 census).
When the 1841
census was recorded she was most probably living with Charles
Willard and his wife Sarah in the High Street
of the St. Mary the Virgin district of Guildford.
In 1851 she was
most probably an unmarried 36 year old servant in the home of 53 year
old David Jones, a General
Practitioner, in Capel Street, Capel. Also part of the household
was 15 year old Kate Willard who was the daughter of
Robert Willard and Eliza Bowers.
I have not
identified Ann in the 1861 census, but in 1871 she was a 50 year old
annuitant living alone in Capel, Surrey. She then gave her place
of birth as Horsham.
In 1881 she was
an unmarried 64 year old annuitant, living next door to Robert and Eliza
Willard was baptised on 30 April 1819 in Horsham. The
baptism register noted that his father was a farmer from Beeding.
The 1861 census records that a 41 year old James Willard,
born in Capel, was an unmarried agricultural labourer, lodging with the
family of 35 year old Jack Stanford at Highland in
Might Charles have
had the following siblings:
Willard (c1777-1832) married
Mary Elliott (c1775-?) by banns on 12
February 1806 in Upper Beeding.
Willard (c1785-1819) married John Jones by banns on 1 December
1805 in Upper Beeding. He was a bachelor and she a spinster. The
witnesses to their marriage were Charles Willard and
Mary Camdrene (could that be Andrew?). John and Sarah's children were:
Catherine 1806, Charles 1808, Ann 1809, Maria 1810, John 1811, Emma 1815,
Henry 1817 and Mary 1818.
It would seem
unlikely they were the children of
(c1745-1797) and Mary
Boorer (?-1792), who had children baptised in nearby Ockley,
Might they in some
way be related to
William Willard (1757-1831) and
(1761-1817)? They did have a son James Willard born
in 1785 in Warnham, but it would seem he married Jane Woolvin
in 1808 and they were both buried in Warnham in 1856 and 1866, respectively.
They also had a daughter Sarah Willard baptised in 1799.
Could William have been the uncle of Sarah, Charles and James? William
did have a brother John.
