William SCUTT (c1790-1867)

and Elizabeth LUCAS (c1801-?)


William Scutt and Elizabeth Lucas married by banns on 19 January 1822 in Bury, Sussex.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Bury.

William Scutt may have been born about 1788 in Bury, Sussex (as per the 1851 census), or 1794 (as per 1861) or 1792 (as per possible burial).  Might he have had a brother, James Scutt who was born about 1783 in Bury?  The 1861 census records that a 67 year old widower, William Scutt, who had been born in Bury, was lodging in the home of Maurice Burdfield at Railway Cottage in Horsham, Sussex.  William was then a carter.  The Horsham burial register records that 75 year old William Scutt was buried there on 24 April 1867.  He had then been living in the Horsham Union Workhouse.

Elizabeth Lucas may have been born about 1801 in Bury (as per the 1851 census).  She may have died before 1861.

When the 1841 census was recorded William was said to be a 50 year old agricultural labourer and Elizabeth 40.  They were living living at Gobles in West Chiltington, Sussex, along with 3 children.  In 1851, 63 year old William was a married farm labourer, lodging in the home of William Walls in Leominster, Sussex.  Also with him was his son William and 8 year old John Scutt.  Elizabeth was then a 50 year old married charwoman and lodging in the home of Richard Hersey at Gobles in West Chiltington.


William Scutt and Elizabeth Lucas had 3 known children:

  1. William Scutt was born on 25 June 1822 and baptised on 30 June 1822 in West Chiltington.  He was 15 years old when the 1841 census was recorded.  In 1851 he was a 28 year old farm labourer, living with his father in Leominster.

  2. Mary Scutt was baptised on 7 May 1826 in West Chiltington.  She was 15 years old in 1841.

    Mary had an illegitimate son by Walter Hoven:
