John SCUTT (1631-1666)

and Denise (?-1673)


John Scutt and Denise may have married before or about 1654 and possibly in Storrington, Sussex, but unfortunately the marriage register has not survived from the 1650's.

John Scutt may have been baptised on 23 October 1631 in Storrington, Sussex, the son of William Scutt (1588-1641) and Alice Grevett.  He was probably buried on 25 July 1666 in Storrington.  Letters of Adminstration were granted in 1666 (ref. I 19, 25).

Denise may have been baptised as Denise Gardiner on 1 November 1632 in Storrington, the daughter of Thomas Gardiner and Alice Fielder.  As Denise Skut, widow, she was buried on 13 March 1672/3 in Storrington.  As Dinnis Scutt, widow, she left a will (ref. 25 94).


John Scutt and Denise had 4 known children:

  1. John Skut was baptised on 30 June 1655 in Storrington.  He most probably married Mary Page in 1685.  (They have their own page.)

  2. Thomas Scutt was buried on 27 May 1672 in Storrington and the burial register recorded that he was the son of Denise Skut, widow. A Thomas Scutt was baptised on 12 August 1657 in Pulborough, the son of John Scutt, but I think he was my 7x Great Grandfather who married Avis Searle in 1686.

  3. Bella Skut was baptised on 5 May 1663 in Storrington.

  4. Isabella Skut was baptised on 10 October 1666 in Storrington.  As Isabel Scutt she married George Goble from Chiltington on 2 November 1693 in Storrington.
