Littlehampton 1885  marriage to George HUMPHREY (b. Littlehampton 1836)

died 1919 in Hobart, Tasmania
The additional information on the right, shown  in orange, was researched by Eddie HANN.

Mary KELL, who states that the couple seem to have been otherwise hardworking and public spirited, adds this: “In his youth George moved to Liverpool, where he married Margaret Leyland. He became chief clerk to the Auctioneers Branch and Leete, where in 1882 he was charged with embezzlement of £30, and received the harsh sentence of 6 months hard labour. This was probably the reason for the family’s emigration to Adelaide 2 or 3  years later. In Adelaide George re-established himself as an insurance agent. They lived in Mann Terrace and later Gover Street, where George died a "gentleman"aged 77.”

James the Grocer’s son George moved to Australia and photographs can be found on The Leyland Catchloves of Australia page.  We do not yet have photos of other branches of this family.
On this page you will find a family tree.

If you would like photos of your own Catchlove ancestors to be published on this website
(not living family members for reasons of privacy) please email them to
enquiries@catchlove-research.org with a clear indication of where they fit in the trees.

Alternatively, if you have a photo of a Catchlove ancestor and you don’t know who it is, I’d be happy to publish it in the hope that someone else will recognise them.
James the Grocer & John the Gardener

This was another fortuitous  circumstance where a double-checking of the parish registers showed a common ancestor for what I had previously seen as two families; the baptisms of James the Grocer and John the Gardener revealed them to be brothers.  Thanks to Mary KELL, Sheila CATCHLOVE, Katrina HOWARTH-BROWN  and Eddie HANN for additional research.

Here we have the sad case of William & his wife Tryphena, who appears to have died destitute - explaining why their son William John ended up in a boys’ home.  This at least gives us a date of death for William, whose death I had previously been unable to locate in the usual sources.
