    • Henry CONSTABLE

      Henry Constable was born in Lindfield, Sussex, England in 1810. There were two families of Constables in Lindfield during these years, both had a son named Henry born in 1810. This was a very confusing issue as I was not certain which Henry to claim as our ancestor. The clue came with the baptism of the last child of Elizabeth and Charles Constable. He was born in Brighton according to the parish transcripts. This was proof enough for me that the family had moved and Elizabeth and Charles were our Henry's parents.
      The other family of Constables remained in Lindfield and descendants of this family live there today. They were brick makers and our Constable was a paper maker.

      Henry was living in the parish of Preston, about 3 miles from the city of Brighton and near Patcham. He married Isabella Penfold whose family was living at the vicarage in Patcham. Isabella's father was a wheel wright and she was one of 10 children.
      In the 1841 census Henry age 3, Isabella, age 30 and Henry Alexander, age 4 were in Middlesex,Marylebone, Holborn Division, and Herny was a confectioner.Not born in this County.
      In the 1851 census, they were back in Brighton. They were living at 22, Queens Gardens on census day. Living on the same street was a Charles, occupation, waiter. It seems possible that this could be Henry's brother Charles born 1826, but no proof of this. The census enumerator had crossed a mark over the age and I could not tell how old Charels was to verify that this was the brother.
      Also, listed in the 1851 census was Philadelphia Penfold. an aunt. This led me to search for Isabella Penfold and thus I was able to find the marriage of Henry and Isabella in the Patcham Parish transcripts.
      Henry and Isabella had one son Henry Alexander Constable. He was baptized at All Saints Church, Patcham Sept. 18, 1836.

      Henry Constable died 19 Feb. 1870, age 59 and a cook and confectioner's foreman. His cause of death: Disease of the lungs. Phthisis, 4 months. He was living at 40 Surrey Street, Brighton , John Penfold.notified the coroner, he is more than likely the brother of Isabella Penfold CONSTABLE
      August 2005- Henry and Isabella are buried in R 50 in the Woodvale cemetery, Brighton, Sussex, England- no headstone is recorded as being placed on the plot.
