George William Marchant

b. 4 January 1844

Parents:

Father: George William Marchant b. 12 Nov 1820, d. 8 May 1902
Mother: Elizabeth Redman b. 7 May 1820, d. 30 Jun 1868

  • Birth: George William Marchant was born in 1844 at Brighton, Sussex, England.1
  • Baptism*: George William Marchant was baptized on 4 January 1844 at Brighton, Sussex, England.
  • He was the son of George William Marchant and Elizabeth Redman.
  • Residence*: On 2 April 1871 George William Marchant lived at 21 William St, Brighton, Sussex, England, living with his widowed father, unmarried.2
  • Occupation*: George William Marchant was a fisherman on 2 April 1871.2
  • Anecdote*: Some family trees in Ancestry.co.uk have his death in Vancouver, Canada.
    However, in the 1901 census for Victoria City Johnson Street Ward, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, the George Marchant living there gives his date of birth as 26 Mar 1845 and his year of emigration as 1867.
    This does not agree with his baptism on 4 Jan 1844 and his presence in Brighton for the 1871 census (although his occupation as mariner and master mariner fits).
    Note that his sister Mary Ann emmigrated to Canada in 1910.3

Last Edited: 18 Feb 2015
  • Birth*: Ann Jacket was born circa 1670 at England.1
  • Anecdote: There is no baptism for Ann in the Sussex Familiy History Group's baptism index. The name Jacket does seem to be localised to Brighton however.
    There is a baptism of a Nicholas Jackett to Thomas and Ann Jackett on 6 Apr 1679 in Brighton. This may be where the name Ann originated. There is also the burial of Ann Jacket, wife of Thomas on 17 Mar 1696 at Brighton.
    The only possible marriage for this Thomas and Ann Jacket in the Sussex Marriage Index is 27 Dec 1667 Thomas Jacket and Agnes Frend at Brighton.1
  • Anecdote*: A Thomas Jacket is mentioned in the following will in 1671, which identifies where he lived:
    John Page, Plumpton, Sussex. Will Made 29 Dec 1671

    *NOTE: The first 2 or 3 letters of this place name are unreadable, places ending with ‘llington’ are Dallington, Hollington, Lullington. Sullington & Tillington. DW
    (Transcribed from a photocopy by Dave Woolven, 12 August 2008 for John Kenton-Page.)2
  • Marriage*: Ann Jacket married William Marchant, son of Richard Marchant and Mary (?), on 27 July 1692 at St Nicholas Church, Brighton, Sussex, England, surname spelt MARCHAN.3
