Henry Attfield (1722-1793)

1 Henry Attfield (1722-1793) [114], son of Henry Attfield ( -1746) [10227] and Ann Lunn ( -1758) [10228].

Born 1722, Windlesham, Surrey. Marr Jane Bramstone 24 Oct 1744, Warfield, Berkshire. Died 1793. Buried 24 Mar 1793, St John the Baptist, Windlesham, Surrey.

Henry Attfield's birth and death dates are taken from the original family tree compiled by Prof. John Attfield in the 1880s. It is known that Henry was born at Windlesham, Surrey, and his father was probably "Henry Attfield the Elder" of Windlesham, yeoman, who died in 1746 but this cannot be definitely confirmed because the relevant parish registers are missing and no baptism record has been found.
Between 1761 and 1765 Henry and his family were living at Weybridge, Surrey, although still officially "settled" at Windlesham. In order to avoid the family becoming chargeable to the parish, a court order was obtained to convey the family from Weybridge back to Windlesham. These documents list the names of the entire family and thus verify the information contained in the original family tree.
Henry is described as "labourer" in these documents.
Sources: Surrey Quarter Sessions, Epiphany Sessions 1765, QS2/6/1765/Eph/7-13, and Easter Sessions 1765, QS2/6/1765/Eas/83, at the Surrey History Centre. Thanks to Merion Burt for obtaining the documents.
By 1770 the family had moved to Chipping Barnet, Herts, where Henry's youngest child was born. A Poor Law examination of Henry Attfield at Chipping Barnet on 19.10.1770 states:
He was born in Windlesham (Surrey) where he once rented a property for £10 a year, paying the poor rates. He is now married to Jane with children Thomas (7) and Richard (14).
Source: HALS D/P15/13/3, listed in John Hill: "Hertfordshire Examinations, An Alphabetical Index", Hertfordshire Family History Society, 2004.
There is no evidence that the family was ever removed from Chipping Barnet and it is supposed that Henry may have died there, although it is also possible that he later moved to Chertsey where his elder children were living (he is described in the original family tree as "Henry Attfield of Chertsey"). He is assumed to be the Henry Attfield who was buried at Windlesham on 24.03.1793.
A Jane Attfield was buried at Friern Barnet on 03.12.1794. This is assumed to be Henry's widow, although there is also a slight chance that it was his daughter, also called Jane.

Note on Marriage to Henry Attfield: Important: This is assumed to be the correct marrage because it is the only one between Henry Atfield & Jane at or near the correct date. But it is speculative and not proven. The Warfield marriage register entry gives no further details.

Occupation: surveyor, of Friern Barnet, Middlesex

At the corner of High Road and Oakleigh Road North in 1486 John Doggett owned a cottage "with curtilage and three crofts called Beldam, Middlefield and Cokkefield". By 1796 Richard Attfield had replaced the cottage by three cottages running east down Oakleigh Road. Attfield, who came to Whetstone in 1790, was a grocer and a parish clerk. He had beautiful handwriting. It is in his hand that a moving entry in the parish accounts reads: "To burying a poor unknown boy 6d, and a box for putting him in 4d".
Attfield planted a row of elm trees along the High Road which were a feature that the Whetstone Society today seeks to emulate. The cottages were demolished after 1881 and the present row of yellow brick shops erected.
