Thomas KING (1721-1801)

and Ann TUTT (1730-1794)


Thomas King and Ann Tutt were my 6x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 25 December 1748 at the parish church of St. Bartholomew in Burwash, Sussex.

Thomas King was baptised on 6 March 1720/1 in Burwash.  He was the son of Thomas King (1687-1750) and Mary Austen Foster (c1700-1749).  There was another Thomas King baptised in Burwash on 29 July 1722, the son of William King and Elizabeth, but he died as an infant.  Thomas died aged 80 years and buried on 21 November 1801 in Burwash.  The burial register records that he was a weaver from the Common.  Thomas was appointed the sole executor of his father's will, by which he was to inherit his father's cottage buildings in Burwash.

St. Mary the Virgin, Warbleton - 21 March 2006Ann Tutt was baptised on 11 June 1730 at the parish church of St. Mary the Virgin in Warbleton, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Stephen Tutt (1685-1756) and Sarah Glyd (1691-?).  Ann was buried on 26 June 1794 in Burwash and the burial register records that she was the wife of Thomas King a weaver from the Common.  She was mentioned in her brother John Tutt's will of 1792, by which she received forty pounds.  Her 3 unnamed daughters also received ten pounds each.  Her son Thomas was not mentioned in her brother's will, although 3 of their nephews did receive legacies. 


Thomas King and Ann Tutt had 4 known children:

  1. Thomas King, my 5x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 30 April 1749 in Burwash.  He married twice.  Firstly to Deborah Vidler in 1773 and then to Mary Stoneham in 1781.  (They have their own page.)

  2. Sarah King was baptised on 22 May 1750 in Burwash.  Another Sarah King was baptised in Burwash in 1754.

  3. Ann King was baptised on 3 May 1752 in Burwash.  Might she have married James Haylor on 18 January 1775 in Etchingham?

  4. Elizabeth King was baptised on 29 February 1756 in Burwash.  Might she have married James Weston on 30 October 1783 in Burwash?
