David STEEL (1812-1887)

and Mary TULLETT (1815-1886)

 

David Steele and Mary Tulit married on 11 October 1834 in Hurstpierpoint, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.  John was the great nephew of my 6x great grandmother, Elizabeth Steel and Mary was the great niece of my 5x great grandfather, John Tullett.)

David Steel was born on 20 May 1812 and baptised on 11 June 1812 in Hurstpierpoint.  He was the son of John Steel (1777-?) and Mary Goodwin.  He died aged 71 years (as per the GRO index) and his death was registered as David Steele in the third quarter of 1887 in the Cuckfield registration district.

Mary Tullett was baptised on 10 December 1815 in Cuckfield, at which time her father was a labourer of Wigperry.  She was the daughter of William Tullett (1785-1870) and Ann Constable (c1788-1852).  Mary died aged 72 years in the third quarter of 1886 in Hurstpierpoint.  The GRO death index records her name as Mary Steele.

At the time of the 1841 census the couple and 3 children (David, Sarah and Mary) were living at Southorn in Hurstpierpoint.  They were both said to be 25 years old and David was an agricultural labourer.  Also with the family was 20 year old James Steel who was an agricultural labourer.

The 1861 census recorded that the couple and 4 children (James, William, Emily and Ruth) were living at No. 5 Park Cottages, Hurstpierpoint.  David was a 46 year old agricultural labourer and Mary was 47.  David's brother James Steel was also with them and he was an unmarried 42 year old agricultural labourer.

When the 1881 census was recorded the couple were living at 17 Manor Cottage in Hurstpierpoint, along with 15 year old grandson Edward Steel, 13 year old granddaughter Jane Steel and 62 year old boarder James Steel.  David was then a 68 year old agricultural labourer and Mary was 66.
