and Sarah BAXTER (1815-1880)
Sarah Baxter was my 3x Great Grandmother. She first married
John Restall by banns on 24 May 1833 at the parish church of St. Mary's in
Bepton, Sussex. John was then a bachelor and Sarah a spinster and they were
both of Bepton. The witnesses to their marriage were
Simmonds and Mary Ann Gardener. By 1845 Sarah had settled
down with George Goble. So far I have not found a marriage for
them. George was at least the step father of my 2x Great Grandfather
born about 1841
and may also have been his biological father. (Click
to see John, George and Sarah's place in my pedigree chart.)
John Restall was probably baptised as John
Aylwin on 22 March 1807 in Treyford cum Didling, Sussex. He was
the illegitimate son of
Aylwin (1785-1865). I am speculating that his father was
(1779-1852) who was born and lived in the neighbouring parish of Trotton.
John died aged 37 years in the Easebourne workhouse on 17 April 1845 and was buried on 23 April 1845 in Treyford cum Didling as
John Restal Alywin. His cause of death was a cough and
debility and his death was registered by Edwin Aylwin who
was the occupier of the Easebourne workhouse.
When the 1841 census was recorded he was probably the 30 year old
Sussex born John
Restall who was living in the Easebourne Union Workhouse.
There was another John
Restall born in Trotton, Sussex in 1812, who married
Sarah Patient in
George Goble was born on 31 December 1807 (as per the baptism
register) and baptised on 10 February 1808 in Midhurst, Sussex. He was
the ninth and final child, and fourth son of
James Goble (1765-1828) and
Hetty Peryer (1767-1859). He died aged 78 years on 30 August
1886 in North Street, Portslade, Sussex. His cause of death was
cerebral haemorrhage and his son John registered his death. (He
most probably died at The Windmill Inn.) When the 1841 census was
recorded he was probably living at Webbs Court in St. Mary Street,
Portsmouth, Hampshire, where he was a 35 year old seaman.
George was a various times a brickmaker and publican. On 30 August
1869 he was granted a licence "for Beer to be consumed on the premises", by
Hove County Court. This licence was transferred to Alfred Aukett
on 31 October 1870 and then to John Packer on 6 March 1871.
George regained the licence on 28 October 1872 and it was renewed each year
in his name until 13 December 1886 when it was transferred to his son
John. In the 1871 census George was described as a brickmaker.
At the recording of the 1881 he was a beer house keeper at The Windmill Inn.
Sarah Baxter was baptised on 13 August 1815 at the parish church of St.
Mary's in Bepton, Sussex.
She was the
Anne Pearcey (1784-1852). She died aged 63 years on 19 March 1880 at The
Windmill Inn, North Street, Portslade-by-Sea. Her cause of death was
pneumonia (8 days) and her son Elijah registered the death. I
have not found Sarah in the 1841 census. She does not seem to have
then been living with her mother or any of her siblings.
When the 1851 census was recorded the family were living at 31 Hoeford,
Fareham, Hampshire and George was a brickmaker. George then gave his
place of birth as Selham and Sarah as Midhurst. He was still a brickmaker at the time of the 1861 census and the family were living at 2
Prison Lane, Alverstoke, Hampshire.
Sarah Baxter had the following children:
Eliza Restall aged 5 months was buried in Bepton on 16 January 1839.
Her death was registered in the first quarter of 1839 in the Midhurst
registration district (ref. VII 277). I don't know for certain that
Eliza was Sarah's daughter - at some point I will order Eliza's death
certificate. Her birth does not seem to have been registered nor was
her baptism recorded in the Bepton parish registers.
Edmund Goble, my 2x Great Grandfather, was born about 1841.
He may have married
Lydia Charlotte Pearson in about 1861. (They have their
own page.) Lydia's father was the brother of Edmund's mother's mother.
James Restall was born on 14 February 1843 at Bepton.
His birth certificate records that he was the son of John Restall
a horse dealer and Sarah Restall formerly Baxter.
His mother registered his birth on 17 March 1843, at which time she made her
X mark. He was baptised as James Restall on 14 May 1843 in Bepton, the
son of Sarah Restall. No father's name was recorded in the
baptism register. As
in 1865. (They have their own page.)
and Sarah Baxter had 6 known children:
Sarah Ann Goble was baptised on 24 August 1845 at St. Mary's in
Portsea, Hampshire. Her parents names were recorded as George and
Sarah. Her death was registered in the fourth quarter of 1845 in the
Portsea Island registration district.
Louisa Emily Gable was born in Portsmouth, as per the 1851 census,
and baptised on 25 December 1846 at St. Mary's in Portsea,
Hampshire. Her birth was registered in the first quarter of 1847 in
the Portsea Island registration district. She may have died in 1870, aged 23 years.
She was 4 year old Lousia Goble when the 1851 census was recorded and
13 year old Emily Goble in 1861 and she was then a scholar.
was born on 14 August 1850 in Emmsworth, Hampshire (I have a copy of his
birth certificate). George married
in 1873. (They have their own page.)
David Goble was born on 18 November 1853 in Bridgemerry, Hampshire.
He was baptised on 28 December 1853 at St. Thomas the Apostle, Elson in
Gosport, Hampshire, at which time his father was a labourer. David
was a brickmaker. In 1861 he was a 7 year old scholar living with his
parents. He married Ann who was born about 1856 in
Scotland. In 1881 the couple were living in Abinger Road, Portslade.
John Goble was baptised on 10 August 1856 at St. Thomas the Apostle,
Elson in Gosport at which time his father was a brickmaker of Bridgemary. Like his father
and brothers he was also a brickmaker and publican. In 1861 he was a 5
year old scholar. On 30 October 1882
a Beer Licence was granted to him, which was transferred to his brother
James Goble in 1883. John took over the licence from his father in
1886, probably for The Windmill Inn. In 1891, John was the publican on
the Windmill Bass House, living there with his wife Ellen and 2
John married Ellen Parsons on 1 February 1879 in
Portslade. He was then a 21 year old bachelor and labourer of
Portslade-by-Sea. She was a 24 year old spinster of Portslade-by-Sea.
The witnesses to the marriage were Charlotte Goble and John Miles.
John and Ellen had 4 known children:
Emily Goble was baptised on 5 October 1879 in Portslade.
She married Walter Wyndham Fisk on 19 January 1902 at St.
Andrews, Portslade. He was a 27 year old bachelor and a bricklayer
of Portslade-by-Sea. She was a 22 year old spinster also of
Portslade-by-Sea. The witnesses were John Goble and
Edith Mary Goble. John was the son of James Fisk.
John Goble was baptised on 5 February 1882 in Portslade. He
was not living with his parents when the 1891 census was recorded.
FreeBMD records that a John Goble aged 0, died in the second
quarter of 1882 in the Steyning registration district.
Edith Mary Goble was born on 24 April 1883 and baptised on 5
August 1883 at St. Andrews, Portslade. She may have married in the
first quarter of 1902 in the Steyning district to either Alfred
Eastwood or James Henry Hill.
William Goble was baptised on 6 July 1884 at St. Andrews,
Portslade. He was not with his parents when the 1891 census was
recorded. FreeBMD records that a William Goble aged 0, died
in the third quarter of 1884 in the Steyning district.
Ellen Parsons may have been baptised on 25 June 1854 in
Southwick, Sussex and have been the daughter of Thomas Parsons
and Harriet Terry, although the 1891 census states she was born
in Hove, Sussex. She died before the recording of the 1901 census.
As a widower, John Goble married Ellen Clements on 20
January 1902 in Portslade. He was then a 44 year old publican of
Portslade. She was a 49 year old widow of Portslade. The
witnesses were Elijah Goble and Amy Goble. As
Ellen Munery she had previously married William Clements on
19 December 1877 in Hove.
Ellen Monery was baptised on 26 December 1853
in West Grinstead and was the daughter of Robert Monery and

and Ellen were living alone at 55 Albion Street, Southwick.
