Hi Irene, James Farndell (baptized on the 13th July,1828 at Warblington Church ) did marry Jane Dridge on the 3rd May, 1853 at St. James`s Church,Emsworth . His Mother and Father were James Farndell and Ann Miller and I can go back quite a bit further.
On the 1851 census James the Father was not there he had died on the 12th October, 1841, aged 39, buried at Warblington.His wife Ann had become Head of the Family, they were living at Saffron Hill Emsworth (which is now South Street,) James had moved out I would presume that he was William`s Father and might of been living with Jane Dridge,
James had quite a few Brother`s and Sisters, I also have their Marriages etc. if you wanted them.
I have on the 1861 census living at Saffron Hill James and Jane with their Children;
William age 10, a Scholar
Fanny Sara age 8 (baptized 2nd October, 1853 at Warblington,
Caroline age 6 (baptized 24th, June 1855 at Saint James`s Church, Emsworth,
Elizabeth age 3 (baptized 2nd December, 1860 at Warblington .
