John SCUTT (c1775-1860)

and Herodias SHAW (c1784-1815)

and Ann STONER (1791-1868)

 

John Scutt married twice.  Firstly to Herodias Shaw on 24 January 1803 in Upper Beeding, Sussex.  He was then of Bolney, Sussex.  John next married Ann Stoner on 16 November 1817 also in Upper Beeding.  (John nor either of his wives were my direct ancestors.)

John Scutt's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  The 1851 census records that he was 75 years old and had been born in Bolney, but no baptism has been found there for him.  He died aged 86 years on 21 January 1860 at Bolney Common, his cause of death being natural decay.  Henry Scutt also of Bolney Common was present at the death and his mark was made on the death certificate.  At the time of his death, John was a farm labourer.  He was buried in Bolney on 26 January 1860.

Herodias Shaw's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She died in child birth and was buried in Cowfold, Sussex on 14 April 1815.  Might she have been the daughter of John Shaw and Sarah Godsmark who married on 29 June 1766 in Upper Beeding?

Ann Stoner was baptised on 24 July 1791 in Cowfold.  She was the daughter of Philip Stoner (1768-1843) and Frances Martin (1765-1836).  But, the 1841 census gave her age as 54 and then 64 in the 1851 census, making her birth about 1787.  The 1851 census recorded that she had been born in Cowfold.  By the time of the 1861 census she was a widow aged 73 years and living with her son Henry and his family at Malthouse Cottages in Bolney.  Ann died aged 77 years on 16 April 1868 at Bolney Common, making her birth about 1791.  Her cause of death was Heart Disease and she was then described as the widow of John Scutt a turnpike labourer.  Her son Amos Scutt was present at the death and made his mark on the death certificate.  Ann was buried on 22 April 1868 in Bolney.  Another Ann Stoner was born in 1791.

When the 1841 census was recorded the family were living in a Cottage on Bolney Common and John was then an agricultural labourer.  By 1851 they were living at Scrapps House in Bolney and John was a labourer.

 

John Scutt and Herodias Shaw had 4 known children:

  1. Elizabeth Scutt was baptised on 17 April 1803 in Slaugham, Sussex.

  2. Mary Scutt was baptised on 17 April 1803 in Slaugham.

    Mary married Allen Anscombe by banns on 6 October 1822 in Bolney.  He was then of Shermanbury and she of Bolney.  The witnesses to the marriage were Henry Henty and Ann Lindfield.

    Allen was baptised on 25 December 1800 in Bolney and was the son of John Anscomb (c1763-1838) and Jenny (they may have married on 9 April 1788 in Horsham, Sussex as John Anscomb of Beeding also Seale and Jane Matthew of Horsham).  He may have been buried on 2 September 1880 in Bolney.

    When the 1841 census was recorded the family were living in Bolney Street, Bolney and Allen was a 40 year old agricultural labourer.  (The 1841 census also records that another Allen Anscombe aged 40 was living in Brighton, Sussex along with his wife Kate and their children.  That Allen was then a surveyor.)

    Allan and Mary had 10 known children:

    1. Harriet Anscombe was baptised on 16 February 1823 in Bolney, at which time her father was a labourer.  She died aged 73 years on 3 October 1896 in Black Hill Road, Narre Warren, Victoria, Australia and was buried on 6 October 1896 in Fern Tree Gully Cemetery.  Her cause of death was malignant --- of the gullet and the informant was Frank Chaundry, grandson who was of Ferntree Gully.  Harriet was a well liked midwife.

      Harriet married Samuel Sandell on 28 January 1845 in East Grinstead, Sussex.  He died aged 75 years on 8 June 1897.  Samuel was a farmer.  The Sandells family were early settlers of Fern Tree Gully (in the mountains behind Melbourne) and a road there is named after them.

      When the 1861 census was recorded the couple were living in Hamsey, Sussex, and they were both then 34 years old.  Allen was then an agricultural labourer.  With them on census night were 3 of their children.
