Henry TULLETT (1845-?)

and Louisa Maria MOOREY (1841-?)


Henry Tullett and Louisa Maria Moorey married by banns on 14 February 1867 at the parish church of St. Nicholas in Brighton, Sussex.  He was then a 23 year old bachelor and labourer, and she a 25 year old spinster.  They were both living at 42 Jersey Street, Brighton at the time of their marriage.  Their fathers were named as James Tullett a labourer and Thomas Moorey a basket maker.  The witnesses to the marriage were James Tullett and M. A. Tullett.  (They were not my direct ancestors, but were the Great Grandparents of David Fyson.)

Henry Tullett was baptised on 7 December 1845 in Ditchling, Sussex.  He was the son of James Tullett (c1818-?) and Jane Ashdown (c1821-?).  In 1881 the family were living at 16 Whichelo Place in Brighton where Henry was a general labourer.

Louisa Maria Moorey was baptised on 5 February 1841 in Eton, Buckinghamshire.  She was the daughter of Thomas Moorey and Ellen Goldsmith.  In 1881 she was a stay and dressmaker.  Before her marriage to James she had an illegitimate son:

  1. Cornelius Samuel Moorey was born on 17 July 1862 at 7 Southover Street in Brighton.  His birth certificate records that he was the son of Richard Moerey, a tailor journeyman and Louisa Maria Goldsmith.  His mother registered his birth on 15 August 1862.  In 1881 he was living with his mother and half siblings and he was then an 18 year old General Labourer.  (Many thanks to Cliff Morrey for details about Cornelius's birth and his mother's marriage to Henry.)


Henry Tullett and Louisa Maria Moorey had 8 known children:

  1. David George Tullett was born on 17 August 1867 in Brighton and baptised on 27 February 1870 in Ditchling.  In 1881 he was a paper hanger's apprentice.  He married Eliza Tiller on 20 January 1890 in Brighton.  She was born about 1867 in Brighton.

  2. Richard Henry Tullett was born on 18 February 1869 and baptised on 27 February 1870 in Ditchling.  He was an errand boy when the 1881 census was recorded.

  3. James Thomas Tullett was born on 15 June 1870 and baptised on 10 July 1870 in Ditchling, Sussex.  He married Charlotte Burtenshaw-Cox (1864-?) in 1891.  (They have their own page.)

  4. William Peter Tullett was baptised on 14 August 1872 in Ditchling.

  5. Berth Annie Tullett was baptised on 5 July 1874 in Ditchling.  She married George Piedot in 1900.  He was born about 1872 in Brighton.  By 1901 they were living at Haverden Villa, Oxford Road, Chesterton, Cambridgeshire and George was a hot water fitter.

  6. Eleanor Jane Tullett was baptised on 12 April 1876 at St. Peter's in Brighton, although according to the 1881 census she was born in St. Johns (which I believe is in Lewes, Sussex) and in the 1901 census she stated she was born in Burgess Hill, Sussex.  She married Edward Ernest Pope in 1898.  He was baptised on 7 June 1874 in East Lavant, Sussex and was the son of Henry Pope (c1824-?) and Caroline Cunningham (c1825-?).  In 1901 Edward was a removal contractor's clerk.

  7. Ernest Albert Tullett was born about 1879 in East Chiltington, Sussex.  He may have married in the third quarter 1898 in the Brighton registration district.

  8. Ebenezer John Tullett was born about 1880 in Plumpton, Sussex - he was 7 months old when the 1881 census was recorded.  He died aged 0 in the third quarter of 1881 in the Brighton registration district.
