George Henry Ayling

My grandfather was George Henry Ayling brother to William James Ayling known in the village as ‘Winkle’ or ‘The Bun King of Lickfold’. His father was George Ayling who was the village postman and a shoe maker: I’m told that he died of a heart attack whilst emptying the post box at Halfway Bridge. His Father was Henry Ayling a gamekeeper born in Easebourne but lived in lodsworth, his sister Priscilla Ayling married Charles Hills of ‘Moorlands Farm’ Lodsworth.

If anyone has any information on any members of my family I would be very interested.

  1. We’ll come back to you with a fuller response, but in the meantime you presumably know Mike Hubbard who is an authority on this branch of the family.

  2. If you do a search for ‘Ayling’ on this website you will find an enormous number of mentions under:
    ‘Farms & Nurseries’, ‘Shops’, ‘Lodsworth in 1912’ by Harry Carver, 11 burials since 1900 in St Peter’s churchyards (there have been over 30 in all), ‘Unusual nicknames in the early 20th century’, ‘The Randall family of Lodsworth Stores’ which included Charlotte nee Ayling a ‘Dependant Brethren’ (also called ‘Cokelers’), and in the catalogue of our Lodsworth Community Archive.
