  • Notes 

    • [e-mail from Mike Roberts referencing the IGI, various British censuses & census indeces, and Capel Parish records: Dorking RD Death Reg. Vol 2, pg 88, line 449; information from Peter Ede] [Arthur "Worsfold" Birth Registration]


      Rebecca's surname was shown as ARCHER in the surname list for the Capel Parish records, but it was "lumped together" with other variations including ARTHUR & ARTHOR. Her parents were shown as John & Mary. Mike Murphy is convinced that this is in actuality Rebecca Arthur. Abode of parents was Broomals. Abode for Mary Arthur was shown as Bromals [ a farm near Capel ].
      A Rebecca "ARTHOR" married William Cheeseman at Capel on 4 February, 1837.
      Two months later, William & Rebecca Cheeseman had their first child, James.
      William Cheeseman died at the age of 21 in February, 1839. Five months later their second child, Mary, was born.
      As far as can be determined, Rebecca did not remarry until 1850 [3 April, 1850], but she had a son, Arthur Cheeseman, whose father was not identified in the parish records, in early, 1846. Arthur was baptized at Capel on 5 May, 1846. According to his birth registration his father was Richard Worsfold, a Farmer's Servant.
      At the time of the 1841 census, Rebecca lived at Aldhurst Farm near Capel. Aldhurst was leased by John Dale who was married to a Quaker woman. The family apparently took in widows, orphans and other destitute people and provided them with room and board in exchange for work on the farm [and possibly a stipend from the Parish Church]. In addition to the John Dale family and Rebecca there were 18 other residents of the farm including her father and three of her sisters and her Uncle and his wife.

      Rebecca married Charles EDE on 3 April, 1850, in Holmwood, Surrey. Their son, Henry EDE, was 6 months old at the time of the 1851 census. By that time, Samuel Arthor had became a widower and had moved into Hatchland Farm which was also leased by John Dale. Rebecca and her new husband were also members of Samuel's household as were her son Arthur and Samuel's niece, Kate Arthur.
      By 1861, Rebecca and her husband and Arthur Cheeseman as well as Rebecca & Charles' sons Henry & William EDE lived at an undecipherable Farm [Obrooks ?]. Rebecca's uncle, Samuel Arter (sic), also lived with them.
      At the time of the 1881 census, Rebecca and Charles EDE were living at Capel, and their 30 year old son, Henry, also lived with them.
