BUT

So Linda, where are you coming from? Which child of John & Eleanor is in the tree you're researching? Is it James?

What is the earliest FACT you have about the family you are following? Do you have a birth or marriage cert, or a family bible, or other papers?

Looking at ancestry Public Family trees .... which, of coruse, cannot always be depended on!! ............... there seem to be TWO John Penfolds born ca 1823 in Patcham, Sussex

One has parents John and Ann(e), and he married Charlotte Goddard Kinshit.

This one seems to have been an Ag Lab (1841) or Beer Seller (1851). He died in 1858


The other has parents James and Frances (or Fanny) Foord, and he married Eleanor.

One tree says that this John married Eleanor (no surname) in 1848, she died in 1862, and he then married Jane Elliott, 10 Aug 1866, St John's, Keymer, Sussex

This John was a Shoemaker

Linda Report 11 Mar 2012 01:10

According to FreeBMD John Penfold and Eleanor Priaulx married in Reigate district in 1855. I can't find her in the1851 census. John Penfold in 1851 is 27, a cordwainer, born Patcham, Sussex, unmarried and living in Brighton with his parents James and Fanny Penfold. In 1861 he is 37, living in Brighton with wife Eleanor 35, born Brighton and 7 children, the oldest James aged 12 born Brighton. Rather bafflingly, IGI gives the christening of James Peter Penfold 28 July 1850, parents John Penfold and Eleanor, in Ardingly, Sussex, not in Brighton. I can't find James in 1851 either, but maybe he's listed as James Priaulx in whatever variant the name has been transcribed as! Or maybe this John Penfold and Eleanor Priaulx aren't mine at all! Any help gratefully received!
