The BELTON Family of Sussex


I have no known Belton ancestors of my own.


In April 2009 I received an email from Eric Shanburn who wondered if I knew any more about his ancestors Charles Belton (1831-1894) and Hannah Wadey (1834-1908).  At that point all I knew is that they were the parents of Eliza Belton (1854-?) who had married James Champion (1850-?).

James was the son of James Champion (1825-1910) and Frances Parsons (1828-1888) and she was the daughter of William Parsons (1792-?) and Hannah Thorns (1790-?), who were also the parents of Rebecca Parsons (1817-1854) who married John Silverson (1816-1884).  John and Rebecca were the parents of Henry Silverson (1850-1835) who married my 3x Great Grandmother Eliza Stillaway (1846-1908).

As a result of Eric's email I went in search of Charles and Hannah and typed up a family group page for them.

Charles and Hannah married in Petworth, Sussex in 1854 and had 13 children baptised in Petworth, Wisborough Green and Horsham.  Charles was baptised in Merstham, Surrey and was the son of George Belton and Eliza Tickner.
