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 at the parish church of St. Mary's in West Chiltington, Sussex.  They were both of West Chiltington and both made their X marks.  The witnesses to their marriage 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 married John Tree in 1786 in Pulborough.  (They have their own page.)

  2. William Scutt was baptised on 11 September 1763 in Billingshurst.

  3. Mary Scutt was baptised on 10 December 1764 in Billingshurst.  Mary may have died aged 77 years in Harham and have been buried as Mary Warner on 11 November 1834 in Pulborough (as per a transcript of the burial register), however, this would make her birth in about 1757.  (Need to check original burial register for her age.)

    Mary may have married Nathaniel Warner by banns on 27 June 1787 in Pulborough.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Pulborough.  The witnesses to their marriage were John Lidbetter and Daniel Searle.  The banns were published in Pulborough on 10, 17 and 24 June 1787.

    Nathaniel was baptised on 20 July 1766 in Pulborough and was the son of Nathaniel Warner (1731-1801) and Sara Lish (?-1804).  His death may have been registered in the third quarter of 1847 in the Thakeham registration district.  (His burial does not appear in a transcript of the Pulborough register.)

    A removal order was issued on 17 December 1825 to Nathaniel Warner and his wife Mary, from Hardham to Pulborough (or vice versa).

    When the 1841 census was recorded, Nathan Warner was said to have been a 70 year old bargeman and living at Newbridge, Coldharbour in Pulborough.  Also part of his household were 46 year old Catherine Slater, 20 year old James Holden, Amy Slater 17, Sophia Slater 9, Ann Slater 2 and 4 year old Eliza Slater.  (Catherine Davies had married James Slater on 14 May 1822 in Pulborough.  James Holden may have been the son of Stephen Holden and Harriet Warner.)

    Nathaniel and Mary had the following children:

    1. William Warner was baptised on 22 June 1788 in Pulborough.  He died aged 85 years in the Thakeham workhouse and was buried on 29 February 1873 in Pulborough.

      William may have married Sarah Pledge by banns on 9 October 1809 in Pulborough.  The witnesses to their marriage were Samuel Child and James Collins.

      On 30 April 1814 two bastardy orders/bonds were issued in respect of a boy born on 14 July 1810 and a female child born on 12 November 1812 to Sarah Pledge a married woman and William Warner a bargeman and the putative father.  Sarah was the wife of John Pledge a labourer, and her children were "born at her own dwelling house".  Previously on 5 February 1814 another bastardy order was issued in respect of children born to Frances Smith at the poorhouse in Pulborough.  The children were a boy born on 14 July 1810 (yep, same date as before) and a girl born on 4 August 1813, both with the surname Smith.  The putative fathers were named as William Warner and Francis Strudwick who were both bargemen.  (Something doesn't seem quite right here, to me.)  A Sarah Smith was baptised on 17 March 1811 in Pulborough, the daughter of Frances Smith.

      Might it have been possible that Sarah bigamously married William, hence why her children were the subject of a bastardy order?  And did William desert her and their children?  The Sussex marriage index records a John Pledge married Sarah Sinden on 12 September 1802 in Eastbourne (I don't know if this was the Sarah in Pulborough).

      William and Sarah had the following children:

      1. Nathan Warner was baptised on 12 August 1810 in Pulborough.  Might he have been born on 14 July 1810?  Nathaniel married Mary sometime before or about 1837.

      2. Eleanor Warner was baptised on 29 November 1812 in Pulborough.  Might she have been born on 12 November 1812?  She was probably buried as an infant on 15 May 1814 in Pulborough.

      3. Avice Warner was baptised on 22 June 1817 in Pulborough.  The baptism register noted that her father was a bargeman.

        Avice married George Daughtry by banns on 19 September 1835 in Pulborough.  The witnesses to their marriage were James Daughtry and Sarah Myram.

      4. Thomas Warner was baptised on 9 April 1820 in Pulborough.  The baptism register noted that his father was a bargeman.  He may have died aged 50 years in the Thakeham Union workhouse and have been buried on 18 September 1871 in Pulborough.

      5. David Warner was baptised on 31 August 1823 in Pulborough.  The baptism register noted that his father was a labourer.

      6. Eliza Warner was baptised on 16 July 1826 in Pulborough.  The baptism register noted that her father was a labourer.  She died as an infant and was buried on 30 April 1827 in Pulborough.

    2. Jenny Warner was baptised on 7 February 1790 in Pulborough.  As Jane Worner she may have married James Dowick in 1810.  (They have their own page.)

    3. James Warner was baptised on 5 April 1792 in Pulborough.  He died aged 29 years and was buried on 1 May 1821 in Pulborough.

      James may have married Mary Slaughter by banns on 7 March 1815 in Steyning, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster.  The witnesses to their marriage were Henry Slaughter and Anthony Lintott.  James may next have married Miriam, or Mary and Miriam may have been one and the same.

      James and Mary/Miriam had the following children:

      1. Harriet Warner was baptised on 14 April 1816 in Pulborough.  The baptism register noted that her father was a labourer and her mother's name was Mary.

      2. Luke Warner was baptised on 4 January 1824 in Pulborough.  The baptism register noted that his father was a bargeman and his mother's name was Miriam.

    4. Harriet Warner may have been part of this family.  She most probably died in Wisborough Green, Sussex between 1835 and 1841 (need to check burial register).

      Harriet married Stephen Holden in 1819 in Pulborough.  The witnesses to their marriage were James Holden and James Overington.

      Stephen died aged 30 years and was buried on 27 October 1827 in Pulborough.

      As a widow Harriet Holden married George Denyer by banns on 2 June 1829 in Pulborough.  He was a bachelor.  The witnesses to their marriage were Edmund Sayers and James Overington.

      George Denier was born on 21 April 1806 and baptised on 18 May 1806 in Wisborough Green and was the son of James Denier and Sarah Pellett.

      In 1841, George Denyer was a 35 year old agricultural labourer and living at Sweephurst in Wisborough Green, along with his his 3 children and 19 year old housekeeper, Elizabeth Lee.

      George Denyer married Elizabeth Lee on 5 February 1842 in Wisborough Green.

      Stephen and Harriet had the following children:

      3. George Holden was baptised on 1 October 1826 in Pulborough.  The baptism register noted that his father was a labourer.

      George and Harriet had the following children:

      1. Caroline Denyer was baptised on 28 February 1830 in Wisborough Green.  She was 11 years old in 1841.

      2. Harriet Denyer was baptised on 9 December 1832 in Wisborough Green.  She was 8 years old in 1841.  In 1851 she may have been an 18 year old scholar and living in the Wisborough Green village workhouse.

      3. Luke Denyer was baptised on 29 March 1835 in Wisborough Green.  He was 6 years old in 1841.

    5. Thomas Warner was baptised on 24 March 1799 in Pulborough.

      Thomas may have married Mary Grinsted by banns on 23 March 1823 in Shipley, Sussex.  The witnesses to their marriage were Joseph Peirce and Richard Greenfield.  Thomas was then of Wiggonholt and Mary of Shipley.

      Thomas and Mary had the following child:

      1. James Warner was baptised on 15 April 1827 in Pulborough.  The baptism register noted that his father was a bargeman.
