William SCUTT (c1780-?)

and Sarah HENLEY (?-?)


William Scutt and Sarah Henley married by banns on 2 April 1806 in Horsham, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster, and they were both of Horsham.  The witnesses to their marriage were Daniel Roberts and Sara Collins.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

William Scutt's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been baptised on 26 April 1778 in Billingshurst, Sussex, the son of John Scutt (1751-1821) and Elizabeth Surgeon (c1760-1845)?  And, might he have been buried on 27 May 1854 in West Chiltington.  A William Scutt aged 41 was buried on 16 May 1827 in Horsham, therefore, born about 1786.

Sarah Henley's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  A Sarah Scutt died aged 56 and was buried on 9 September 1840 in Horsham, therefore, born about 1784.


William Scutt and Sarah Henley had 3 known children:

  1. Samuel Scutt was baptised on 8 March 1807 in Horsham.

  2. Elizabeth Scutt was baptised on 10 April 1808 in Horsham.

  3. Mary Ann Scutt was baptised on 22 October 1809 in Horsham.  She married Henry Burchell in 1827.  (They have their own page.)
