Wingate family of Selsea
We know about this family from the transcription kindly provided by Fay Sampson Priestly on the Genuki Devon Fulford Court Case Notes. See link.
And in this message on Rootsweb (linked below) there is also a bit about a Charles WINGATE, who may be the Charles on the tree below,
- See Link to Message NOTE: Scroll down to PART 4 - Amelia WINGATE.
- See Family tree for Charles WINGATE of West Sussex kindly provided by "Aussie Roy".
- See also Genuki Coastguard Website with details of 12 WINGATE coastguards who are probably this family (scroll right down page). There are also a couple of WINGs and a WINROTT who may be related.
Here is a family tree devised from the information given in the Court Case Notes transcription:
Date Oct. 1851
William & Elizabeth WINGATE Parish Clerk in Celsea for 13-14 years succeeded by a George WINGATE died. c. 1810 in 'Celsea' ________|__________________________________________________________________________________ | | | | | | Thomas (James) Charlotte William John Charles other sibling ?George in Celsea till 1800 Coastguard in Hythe Farming, Fishing, Boatman 8 years in Scilly Also Kent, Sussex, Penzance 1820 went into Coastguard d. 14/6/51 m. 1 ? m 2. Elizabeth d?1847 | | Eliza DOB ?1819 Agnes b. Sep 26 1847, Penzance
Agnes Wingate, b. 1847
There is further information about Agnes in the 1861 Census. She was then living in Deal, Kent. Her age is given as 13 which is consistent with the date above of September 1847, although she (or another informant) gives her birthplace as Plymouth. However, seeing as how they were moving from pillar to post at that time, one can understand how she or her stepsister could have forgotten the exact place of birth by then. This information comes from the DFHS website 'strays' index but the original census image needs to be inspected to see exactly who she was living with then although the DFHS adds that she is the 'niece of Thomas James WINGATE born Scilly Isles'. This presumably is the Thomas on the tree above.
