Thomas BAYTUP (c1760-?)

and Martha MITCHELL (c1760-?)


Thomas Baytup and Martha Mitchell married on 20 November 1781 in Upper Beeding, Sussex.  (They were my not direct ancestors.)

Thomas Baytup's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been baptised as Thomas Baitop on 23 January 1756 in Cowfold, the son of Thomas Baytup and Martha Gander?  However, 1756 Thomas seems to have had a younger brother also named Thomas who was baptised in 1765.  A Thomas Batupp died aged 73 years and was buried on 5 February 1823 in West Grinstead, therefore, born about 1750.

Martha Mitchell's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.


Thomas Baytup and Martha Mitchell may have had the following children:

  1. Richard Baytup was baptised on 9 June 1782 in Cowfold.  He married Elizabeth Stear in 1807.  (They have their own page.)

  2. Mary Baytup was baptised on 17 October 1784 in Cowfold.  She had an illegitimate son:

    1. William Baytop was baptised on 29 November 1807 in Nuthurst.

    Mary may have married Richard Constable by licence on 3 April 1810 in Nuthurst.  Their marriage licence was issued on the same day and recorded that Mary was a 22 year old spinster of Nuthurst (i.e. born about 1788).  Richard was a 21 year old blacksmith from Horsham.  Surety for the licence was provided by Richard himself and William Sharp a farmer from Nuthurst.

  3. Ann Baytop was baptised on 10 June 1787 in Nuthurst.  Ann may have had an illegitimate daughter:

    1. Lydia Baytop was baptised on 20 August 1820 in Nuthurst.

    Ann may have married William Wicken on 25 December 1820 in Nuthurst.  He was then of Rusper and she of Nuthurt.

  4. Martha Baytop was baptised on 20 June 1790 in Nuthurst.  She may have married Thomas Funnel on 14 October 1819 in Nuthurst.

  5. Thomas Baytop was baptised on 14 June 1795 in Nuthurst.

    Thomas married Harriet Potter by banns on 21 February 1821 in Horsham.  Thomas was then a bachelor and Harriet a spinster and they were both of Horsham.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Hensett and J. Humphery.

    When the 1851 census was recorded the couple and their son William were living in Albury, Surrey.  Thomas was then said to be a 52 year old miller.  Harriet was then 49 years old and gave her place of birth as Slinfold, Surrey.

    Thomas and Harriet had the following children:

    1. Mary Baytopp was baptised on 1 July 1821 in Horsham.

    2. Anne Baytopp was baptised on 2 February 1823 in Leatherhead, Surrey.  The 1841 census records that she was a 15 year old servant in the home of Thomas Carlyle, an advocate, on Albury Heath, Albury.

    3. Martha Baytopp was baptised on 30 January 1825 in Leatherhead.

    4. Thomas Baytop was baptised on 18 February 1827 in Albury.

    5. William Baytop was baptised on 7 March 1830 in Albury.  He was a 21 year old miller and the only one of his siblings living at home.

  6. John Baytop was baptised on 1 September 1799 in Nuthurst.


Might Stephen Baytop, who was born about 1800, have been part of this family?  He married Elizabeth Vinale in 1830.  (They have their own page.)
