William SCUTT (c1825-1908)

and Mary MANSBRIDGE (c1834-?)

 

William Scutt and Mary Mansbridge married by banns on 18 November 1854 in Bolney, Sussex.  William was then a labourer and Mary a domestic servant, and they were both of Bolney.  The witnesses to the marriage were Maria Ede, Henry Scutt and Thomas Attree. Their father's were named as William Mansbridge and John Scutt who were both labourers.

(William and Mary were not my direct ancestors.  Mary was the niece of my 3x Great Grandmother, Elizabeth Mansbridge (1808-1879).  I also have earlier Scutt ancestors from Billingshurst and West Chiltington, but don't know, yet, if there is any link.)

William Scutt was born about 1824-6 in Bolney and was the son of John Scutt (c1775-1860) and  Ann Stoner (1791-1868).  He died on 13 March and was buried in Bolney on 28 March 1908.  His cause of death was Cerebral Apoplexy.  When the 1841 census was recorded, William was possibly the 15 year old agricultural labourer living in the home of Richard Cragg at Brooklands in Bolney.  Also in Richard's household at that time was 15 year old Ann Mansbridge, a servant.  By 1851 William was living with his parents at Scrapps House in Bolney and he was then a 27 year old unmarried agricultural labourer.

William's brother John Scutt (1829-1877) married Mary's cousin Kezia Mansbridge (1835-?) in 1853.

Mary Mansbridge was born about 1834/5 in Bolney.  She was the daughter of William Mansbridge (1792-1874) and Sarah Walder (1799-1878).  In 1841 she was a 6 year old living with her parents and siblings in Bolney.  She was still with her parents as a 16 year old in 1851.

At the time of the 1861 census the family were living in Colwood Road, Bolney and William was then an engine driver and feeder.  In 1871 they were living at Homewood House and William was an agricultural labourer.  When the 1881 census was recorded the family were living at Homewood House Cottages in Bolney and William was an agricultural labourer - next door at that time was the family of James Vaughan.  In 1901 the couple were living at Colwood Park Farm, Bolney and William was an ordinary labourer.

Another Mary Mansbridge was also born in 1834 and married in 1854.  She was the daughter of William Mansbridge (1794-1866) and Sarah Neeve (1799-?) and married George Attree.
