The IGI shows the christenings of Deborah, Anne and Steel in Capel St Mary with parents George and Elizabeth.

George (G4)

George Jr. married Jane Goddard in 1828, From the presence of other Goddards in Capel in the 1841 census, Jane was probably also from Capel St Mary. By 1841 George became the Schoolmaster in Capel. In 1861 they were living at Gaston Street, East Bergholt but by 1871 they had returned to Upper Street, Capel. For both the 1861 and 1871 censuses, George was listed as registrar of births deaths and marriages.

Elizabeth (G4)

More details will follow on Elizabeth, who was my Great-Great-Great-Grandmother. In 1829 married Thomas Taylor at St Marylebone in London.

Steel (G4)

Steel became a butler and in 1861 was living at 52 Marylebone Lane, St Marylebone, London. In 1866 he married Isabella Sarah Mara and in 1871 they were living in Western Terrace, Kensington and he was a porter. Steel died in 1878.

Richard (G4)

Richard married Isabella and by 1840 moved to Windsor and then by 1843 moved to 5 Little Marylebone Street, Marylebone, London. He was a confectionery maker.

Anne (G4)

Nothing more is known about Anne

Deborah (G4)

Deborah married Walter Mortimer (b Stoke by Nayland, Suffolk in 1835), the son of a Gamekeeper from Roydon, Suffolk in 1866. In 1871 they had a pub in Nayland, Suffolk and in 1881 they were in Higham, Suffolk where Walter was a farmer.

Of particular interest in the 1881 census was that Deborah's sister Elizabeth Taylor (age 75, b Capel, Suffolk) was living with them, and Elizabeth's daughter Mary Taylor (b. abt 1838 in Romford, Essex) was a visitor.
