William SCUTT (c1555-?)

and unknown (?-?)


William Scutt may have married before or about 1580 in or around Storrington, Sussex.

William may have been a Godfather to Richard Shotier, son of Richard, who was baptised in Storrington on 26 September 1589.

A Thomas Scutt of Storrington left a will in 1555 (ref. 8 155b).

An Edward Scutt of Storrington left a will in 1561 (ref. 10 130).

A Thomas Scutt of Storrington left a will in 1578 (ref. 12 45).

A John Scutt of Storrington left a will in 1603 (ref. 15 174)


William Scutt and unknown had 7 known children:

  1. Margaret Skute was baptised on 15 October 1580 in Storrington.  The baptism register named her Godparents as John Shotier, Margaret Skute and Margery Skute.  As Margaret Scutt she may have married William Cayne on 9 July 1603 in Storrington.

  2. Johanna Skut was baptised on 24 February 1582/3 in Storrington.  Her Godparents were named John Welles and Anne Somers.

  3. John Skutt was baptised on 29 January 1584/5 in Storrington.  His Godparents were named as John Gretwicke, Thomas Wells and Ann Parham.  He may have been buried on 4 February 1584/5 in Storrington, but the burial register only records that John Skutt was buried.  Or he may have been buried on 19 February 1602/3 in Storrington, as John Scutt from Hurston (unlikely as this John left a will).  Or might he have married Parnel who as Parnel wife of John Scutt was buried on 7 June 1628 in Storrington.

  4. William Skutt was baptised on 28 January 1587/8 in Storrington.  His Godparents were named as John Burnell, Edward Greene and Joan Bosworth.  William may have married twice, firstly to Elizabeth Boniface in 1613 and then to Alice Grevett in 1618.  (They have their own page.)

  5. Edward Scutt was baptised on 11 April 1590 in Storrington.  His Godparents were named as Edward Skutt, William Boothe and Alice Greene.  He may have been buried on 16 March 1622/3 in Storrington, but might this burial have been of a possible uncle?

  6. Thomas Scutt was baptised on 6 May 1591 in Storrington.  His Godparents were named as Peter Burnell, Thomas Porter and Eleanor Edgerton.  A Thomas Scutt from Cootham was buried on 4 October 1618 in Storrington.

    Thomas may have married Joane Woode on 21 July 1611 and/or Jane Hammon on 11 May 1620.  Both marriages took place in Storrington.

    Joan wife of Thomas Scutt was buried on 4 March 1617/8 in Storrington.

    Thomas had the following children:

    1. Parnel Scutt (daughter) was baptised in June 1612 in Storrington.

    2. Joan Scutt was baptised on 18 June 1615 in Storrington.

  7. Anne Scutt was baptised on 9 May 1596 in Storrington, at which time her father was from Hurston.
