Richard PANNELL (1780-1862)

and Elizabeth AYLWIN (1785-1865)


Elizabeth Aylwin may have had a relationship with John Restall in about 1806 and they may have been my 4x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their possible place in my pedigree chart.)  Elizabeth married Richard Pannell by banns on 24 December 1812 in Harting, Sussex.  He was then a widower and they were both of Harting.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Neve and Ann Aylwin.  Richard had previously married Jane Clews by licence on 23 May 1804 in Stedham, Sussex.  Their marriage licence was issued on 21 May 1804 by the Archdeaconry of Chichester, which noted that he was a bachelor and farmer of Harting and she a spinster of Stedham.  They were both aged 21 years and upwards.  Surety for their licence was provided by Richard himself and John Clewes a farmer of Trotton.

Richard Pannell was baptised on 6 March 1780 in Harting.  He was the son of Richard Pannell and Elizabeth White.  Richard died aged 81 years in South Harting and was buried on 25 January 1862 in Harting.

Jane Clews date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 17 April 1812 in Harting.

Elizabeth Aylwin was baptised on 3 October 1785 in Treyford cum Didling, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Peter Aylwin (1757-1833) and Mary Enticknap (c1761-1840).  She died aged 79 years in South Harting and was buried on 28 January 1865 in Harting.  She was mentioned in her father's will as Elizabeth Pannell and she was left a legacy of 225.  Her father also stated that if she should die within his lifetime, then her share was to be divided between her her children, illegitimate and legitmate.

At the time of the 1841 census the couple were living at Malt House in Bramshott, Hampshire.  Richard was then a 55 year old farmer and Elizabeth was 50.  Also with them were 2 of their unmarried children and their married daughter Elizabeth and her family. 

When the 1851 census was recorded Richard aged 69 and Elizabeth aged 64, were living together in East Harting.  He was then an agricultural labourer.  Elizabeth gave her place of birth as Treyford.

In 1861 the couple and their youngest son were living in South Harting.  Richard was described as a pauper and he was 81 years old.  Elizabeth was 73.  He gave his place of birth as Harting and she as Tryford.


Elizabeth Aylwin had the following son:

  1. John Restall Aylwin, my possible 3x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 22 March 1807 in Treyford cum Didling.  He married Sarah Baxter in 1833.  (They have their own page.)  Might his father have been John Restall (1779-1852)?


Richard Pannell and Elizabeth Aylwin had 7 known children:

  1. Elizabeth Pannel was baptised on 28 November 1813 in Harting, at which time her father was a farmer from East Harting.

    Elizabeth married Joseph Perkins on 11 April 1836 in Chiddingfold, Surrey.

    When the 1841 census was recorded the couple and 2 children were living with her parents in Bramshott.  Joseph was then a 30 year old game keeper.

    Joseph and Elizabeth had the following known children:

    1. Thomas Perkins was baptised on 21 March 1837 in Chiddingfold.  He was 4 years old in 1841.

  2. Richard Pannell was baptised on 25 October 1815 in Harting.
