    • Nick Stedman has this date. FreeBMD lists two deaths of James Stedmans in the Guildford District between 1851 and 1861; A December 1852 death, Vol. 2a, p. 36, and a March 1861 death, Vol. 2a, p. 39.

      I believe the 1861 date is correct because there is a burial that seems to fit in Guildford in 1861.

      Guildford, Surrey

      Surrey History Centre: Lea Pale House, Stoke next Guildford first noted: 1774 last noted: 1879
      Hervey, N.B. 1987 suggests that this was the house David Irish advertised in 1700. In 1773 Thomas Irish was "of Great Foster House".

      1774 licensed to Mary Street and Mary Jellyman, who Nic Hervey says were spinsters. He also mentions a John Randall as licensee. "In 1774 it contained nine female private patients, and from then until 1793 when it closed down temporarily the numbers gradually decreased to 3."

      1798 Re-opened under the ownership of James Stilwell, taking both male and female private patients, with numbers fluctuating between 2 to 6.

      1815 list: Guildford: Stilwell

      James Stilwell christened 24.2.1771 at Compton Near Guildford, was the son of James and Elizabeth Stilwell. James Stillwell married Ann Chuter on 13.10.1796 at Stoke Next Guildford. James Stilwell christened 27.4.1798 at Stoke Next Guildford, was the son of James and Ann Silwell. Arthur Stilwell, born 16.12.1813, christened 16.2.1814 Stoke Next Guildford. Parents: James and Ann Stilwell. A James Stilwell married Ann Foreman on 11.2.1812 at Willingdon in Sussex. A James Stilwell married Ann Foreman on 5.10.1828 at Stoke Next Guildford
      Possibly 1817 or 1828 that James Stilwell moved to Moor Croft, Hillingdon?

      "In 1817 the license passed to a Thomas Jenner Sells who was in practice with Caleb Woodyer and James Stedman in Guildford, and these gentlemen together with Randall remained connected with asylum until the 1850s. It was James Stedman who was generally the licensee however."

      By 1826 "the numbers had gone up to nine, but in the 1840s there were generally only 4 or 5 inmates and the proprietors were taking more male than female patients, a trend which continued in the 1860s".

      1841 Census: Lea Pale House Lunatic Asylum. Superintendents: Stephen (aged 50) and Louise (aged 45) Golding. Patients: Jn. Smith aged 55 and A.W. Fitzroy, men, of independent means - F. Williams? aged 40, Farmer - Frances Seckitt? aged 25, lady. Staff: Sarah Simon? of "unknown" age, nurse - Ann Powett? aged 20, female servant - Thomas Franks aged 60, keeper. All born in Surrey.

      "In the 1840s Silas Stilwell Stedman was signing admission certificates for both Lea Pale and Church Street, Epsom and there was a Robert Stedman providing certificates for George Stilwell at the latter house. James Stedman of Lea Pale also signed certificates for George Stilwell."
