William WOOLGAR (1745-1825)

and Jane NYE (c1750-?)

 

William Woolgar and Jane Nye on 17 July 1774 in Bolney or 19 July 1774 in Henfield, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  William was the brother of my 5x Great Grandfather, Samuel Woolgar.)

William Woolgar was baptised on 7 January 1745/6 in Woodmancote, Sussex.  He was the son of 5 135 Stephen Woolgar (1712-1791) and 5 135 Mary Elsey (1716-1788).  William died aged 79 years and was buried on 17 February 1825 in West Grinstead.

Jane Nye's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  (I've not yet looked for her baptism.)

 

William Woolgar and Jane Nye had 9 known children:

  1. Mary Woolgar was baptised on 10 December 1776 in West Grinstead.

  9. Henry Woolgar was baptised on 21 July 1793 in West Grinstead.

    Henry married Esther Dale by licence on 20 June 1812 in Wiston, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was issued on 19 June 1812 by the Archdeaconry of Chichester, and recorded that Henry was 19 years old and married with the consent of William Woolgar, who were both labourers of West Grinstead.  Esther was 20 years old and of Wiston, and married with the consent of Elizabeth Dale, widow

    Esther died aged 21 years and was buried on 4 July 1814 in West Grinstead.

    As a widower, Henry may have married Mary Funnell, spinster, on 14 January 1815 in Brighton, Sussex.
