Did You Know?

  • John Phillips and Frances Vidler married in Guestling despite having no apparent connection with the parish. Their son John Richard Phillips was born five months later.
  • Grace Wenham was living with John Phillips and Frances Vidler in 1861 and Frances was the informant on her death certificate. Although the relationship is given as 'Lodger' in the census entry she was probably John's maternal aunt.
  • John Phillips is actually listed in the 1841 census twice. He was a TurnKey [sic]/assistant (the two entries differ) at the Common Gaol, which was included as both a building off the High Street and as an institution.
  • One of the witnesses to John Phillips's marriage to Frances Vidler in Guestling in 1841 was a William Phillips. When the 1841 census taken there was a William Phillips living in Guestling who was a Police Officer. (He was the son of James Phillips and Mary Ann Carpenter, and was baptised at All Saints in Hastings in 1815.) John subsequently became a Police Constable, and William a Superintendant of Police.
  • Although no father's name is given on John Phillips's marriage certificate to definitely establish his parentage, his 3xgreat-grandson has a DNA match to a 4xgreat-granddaughter of his mother Ann Wenham's brother John Wenham.
