Ellen Jane White

b. 1884
FatherWilliam White
     Ellen Jane White was born in 1884 at Worthing, Sussex, England. She was the daughter of William White.
Ellen Jane White was baptized on 10 July 1884 at Broadwater, Sussex, England.
On 2 April 1911 Ellen Jane White and Cecil Edwin Philip Marchant lived at 30 Roedale Rd, Brighton, Sussex, England, living with Walter Percy Middleton and wife Annie.
Ellen Jane White married Cecil Edwin Philip Marchant, son of William George Buckran Marchant and Maria Murrell, on 5 June 1911 at Broadwater, Sussex, England.1
Information from Joan, daughter of Maria Sarah Marchant:
Ellen Jane Marchant (nee White) met Frederick Deacon when she was visiting her children Donald, Gladys & Rose in the workhouse. Frederick Deacon's children were also there. They had two children: Maria Sarah (Sally as she was known) and a son called Thomas. Ellen Jane left them all, including her children, with Frederick Deacon. Daughter Maria Sarah Marchant did not remember her very much.
After Frederick died Gladys or Rose took Maria in to work for them which didn't go too well, and she left them to join the Wrens. I know she kept in touch with Donald when he was a prisoner of war in Italy and lost contact with him when they transferred him to Italy. We tried to find him through the Ministry of Defence but apart from telling us that he was alive they would tell us nothing else.
Maria was brought up as Sarah Deacon. She only found out she was a Marchant when she joined the Wrens, and that Cecil was named as her father. Her brother Thomas was registered in the name of White which Maria found out when he died. Why Ellen Jane did this and did not register them as Deacon's I do not know. Maria was definitely a Deacon, adored her father and so was Thomas. She was very close to Donald but not so much to the girls. I gather that Florence is the one she called Rose but I know nothing of William.
In 1927, Ellen's husband Cecil and their son Cecil James left England for Australia.

Henry White

b. circa 1766, d. 11 March 1843
Mark of Henry White, 1795.
     Henry White was born circa 1766 at Sussex, England; based on age on death certificate.
A possibility for Henry's baptism is 2 Feb 1767 at Hurstpierpoint, son of James and Ann White.
There is a marriage of a Catherine White and John Foster at Clayton on 8 Dec 1801. Could this be a sister to Henry? One of the witnesses was Sarah White.1
Henry White married Sarah Richardson, daughter of James Richardson and Sarah Mockford, on 5 April 1795 at St John the Baptist, Clayton, Sussex, England, Sarah's surname is spelt RICKERSON, both of Clayton, witnesses John Ailward and James Geer (who appears to be the parish clerk.)2
In searching for this marriage there were two possibilities:
24 Jun 1798 Henry WHITE married Sarah MARTEN at Clayton
5 Apr1795 Henry WHITE married Sarah RICKERSON (RICHARDSON) at Clayton
These two Sarah's are:
Sarah RICHARDSON bap. 20 Dec 1777 to James and Sarah Richardson at Clayton
Sarah MARTEN bap. 20 Sep 1778 to John & Sarah Marten at Clayton
Henry's first wife, Sarah, was buried at Clayton on 20 Jan 1802, age 24 years. Assuming that the above Sarah's were born one month before baptism, their ages on 20 Jan 1802 would have been: Sarah Richardson 24 years, Sarah Marten 23 years. The date at burial therefore supports Sarah Richardson being Henry's first wife.3
The marriage of a Henry White and Sarah Marten at Clayton on 28 Jun 1798 makes identification of children after this date difficult as both couples lived in Clayton. Their first child was likely Henry, baptised 18 Nov 1798 at Clayton. The next baptism is for Jane White on 29 Jun 1800, and she could be the child of either couple. Intriguingly, there is a baptism at Clayton on 4 Oct 1801 of John White son of Henry and Ann White. There are no Henry White marriages to an Ann in the Sussex Marriage Index in this period so there is the possibility that this is a mistake and should be Henry and Sarah (ie not Ann).2
Henry White married Jane Gorring on 20 November 1803 at Ditchling, Sussex, England, both of this parish. Henry was a widower.2
Sometime between 1804 and 1811 Henry and Jane moved from Ditchling to Brighton.
Henry White was husbandman on 2 April 1813.4
On 2 April 1813 Henry White and Jane Gorring lived at Carlton Rd, Brighton, Sussex, England.4
For the 1841 census, Henry and Jane were living in Edburton, just behind the Downs, where Henry later died in 1843. It is interesting to note that their son William had two children, William and Henry, who died in Brighton but were buried in Edburton in 1832 and 1829 respectively, suggesting that Henry and Jane moved to Edburton before 1829.5
Henry White was an agricultural labourer on 7 June 1841.5
Henry White died on 11 March 1843 at 4 am, Edburton, Sussex, England. He died of disease of the heart, age 77 years.6
Henry White was buried on 16 March 1843 at Edburton, Sussex, England.7
After Henry's death, it appears that Jane moved to Brighton to live with her son James and his family. She died in Brighton in 1846 but was buried in Edburton with Henry.8
