my g grandfather Philip Henry DUFFIELD was born 1882 Ardingly, Sussex he married Martha Eliza BATTERBURY (nee Dyer) 1908, Portsmouth, Hants. They had 2 children, Phyllis Nora Irene DUFFIELD 1909 (my gran) and Philip Walter Christian DUFFIELD abt 1910. P H DUFFIELD was in the Royal Navy. Next mention of P H Duffield is on my grans marriage cert 1935 where he is mentioned as deceased.
I have now found out he was not deceased in 1935, but living in Fife.
He married Jane Ann NEWDICK (nee Knowles) in Aberdour 1921, they had a son Edward John DUFFIELD in 1922 who lived for just 1 month. P H DUFFIELD died in 1946 in Dunfermline, at which time his home address was in Rosyth. He had been a labourer in Rosyth Dockyard.
Is anyone researching any of the above names? Has anyone got any more info on Philip Henry DUFFIELD. Any help would be most appreciated and I will share other research etc with you.

The Duffield family were in Ardingly in 1871, 81, 91 and 1901. Walter and Sarah had at least six children. Mabel c1875, Alfred c1877, William c 1879, Ethel 1880, Philip c1882 and Nora c 1887. Walter was a Warehouseman/Grocer born in Billingshurst c 1850. They lived at Hapstead which is on the main road through the village, going north.
There is a marriage on FREEBMD for a Walter Duffield to Sarah Agatha Dean in Mar 1874 in the Horsham District. Sarah was b c 1845 in Dunster/Dunston? Sussex
Hope this helps.
