Thomas SCUTT (1726-1796)

and Hannah MIRIAM (1734-1817)

 

Thomas Scutt and Hannah Myrrium were my 5x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by banns on 22 October 1760 in West Chiltington, Sussex.  They were both of West Chiltington and both made their X marks.  The witnesses were Thomas Nye (signed) and Sarah Nye (mark).

Thomas Scutt was baptised on 16 April 1726 in West Chiltington.  He was the son of 5 147 Thomas Scutt (1692-1773) and 5 147 Avis Wood (1702-1773).  He may have been buried on 25 December 1796 in Pulborough, Sussex or, on 30 July 1805 in Billingshurst, Sussex, but this burial may refer to his son, or someone else.

Hannah Miriam was baptised on 16 September 1734 in Rusper, Sussex.  She was the daughter of 5 148 William Miriam (c1692-1748) and 5 148 Hannah Harrison (1711-?).  She may have been buried on 16 May 1817 in Pulborough, but the burial register notes that she was 80 years old, which would make her birth about 1737.

 

Thomas Scutt and Hannah Miriam had 8 known children:

  1. Sarah Scutt was baptised on 22 November 1761 in West Chiltington.  She died aged 88 (as per the burial register) and was buried on 19 January 1847 in Pulborough.

    Sarah married John Tree by banns on 2 February 1786 in Pulborough.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Pulborough.  The witnesses to their marriage were Daniel Searle and Arthur Redman.  The banns were published in Pulborough on 18, 15 and 22 January 1786.

    John was baptised on 21 January 1759 in West Chiltington and was the son of James Tree and Ann Wood.  He died aged 64 years and was buried on 2 December 1824 in Pulborough.

    Thomas and Sarah had 4 known children:

    1. Milline Tree (daughter) was baptised on 27 April 1788 in Pulborough.  (The IGI also records that a son William was baptised on the same day, but in the parish register he is shown to be the son of John Redman and his wife Mary.)
