Sarah, daughter of John and Elizabeth Styles married James Whiffin on the 4th of January 1847. James a builder born in Cambridgeshire (possibly in Linton, a concentration of Whiffin's) most probably met Sarah whilst buying bricks at the yard in Coopersale.
James and Sarah had eight children:
Elizabeth Mary 1847-
George Jabez Styles 1849-1934
Adelade Sarah 1853-
Harriet Maria 1856-
Amelia Laura 1862-
Many of their descendents lived in the village, as late as the 1990's I found flowers on the Whiffin graves to the rear of the church yard.
