William (Child no. 1) died 1864 in New Zealand
Martha (Child no. 3) died on 14/03/1794

John (Child no. 4) married Elizabeth Mayo. He died on 09/09/1872.  Their son (Rev) John Edward Linnell (Celia's nephew) wrote the book "Old Oak" published by Collins in 1932.  This is a story about life in Silverstone and recounts some of the family history.  A photo of him at about the age of 63 (~1905) is shown on the right.

An extract from the book follows with reference to Rev John Linnell:
His grandmother, Miss Elliott, of Luffield Abbey, a very considerable heiress, eloped with his grandfather, William Linnell of Silverstone; and his father John Linnell, born in 1795, was one of her seventeen children.  His grandmother's fortune, divided among so many sons and daughters, only brought a few thousands to his father, and these the latter never added to; in fact they diminished steadily in his keeping, for, easy and generous, he was for ever lending money, with the unhappy fate of all lenders.

Martha (Child no. 5) died 28/06/1819
George (Child no. 6) married Jane Wood.  He died on 21/05/1866
Hannah (Child no. 7) was buried on 09/04/1801
Hannah (Child no. 8) was buried on 29/08/1802
Hariott (Child no. 9) was buried on 18/02/1804
Hariott (Child no. 10) married George Mayo.  She died on 06/07/1877
Charlotte (Child no. 12) died on 18/07/1809

Richard (Child no. 14) died on 12/10/1811
Phoebe (Child no 15) died on 05/06/1813
