James TULLETT (1791-?)

and Ann GODDARD (c1794-1840)

 

James Tullett and Ann Goddard married by banns on 6 November 1819 in Cuckfield, Sussex.  He was then a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Cuckfield.  The witnesses to the marriage were Charles Tullett, Catherine Tullett and Richard Anscombe.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

James Tulet was baptised on 20 February 1791 in Cowfold, Sussex.  He was the son of William Tullett (1757-1817) and Phoebe Virgo (c1760-1836).

Ann Goddard's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She died aged 46 years and was buried on 24 July 1840 in Cuckfield.  Might she have been the daughter of William Goddard (c1762-?) and Ann Gallup (c1764-?).

The 1841 census records that James Tulett was a 40 year old gate keeper, living in part of Leigh Gate House in Cuckfield.  With him on census night were 3 of his daughters, Sarah, Ann and Kitty.

 

James Tullett and Ann Goddard had 6 known children:

  1. Jemima Tullett was baptised on 28 July 1822 in Cowfold, at which time her father was a labourer.

  2. Sarah Ann Tulett was baptised on 5 September 1824 in Cowfold.  She was buried on 8 March 1913 in Cuckfield.  In 1851 she was 15 years old and living with her father in Cuckfield.

    As Sarah Ann Tullett she married William Godsmark on 13 November 1847 in Cuckfield.  She was then a spinster and he a bachelor and labourer.  They were both of full age and of Cuckfield.

    William was born about 1819 in Cuckfield and died in February 1892 in Ansty, Sussex.  He was the son of Richard Godsmark (1775-1862) and Mary Scott (1781-1860).

    William and Sarah Ann had the following children:

    1. Elizabeth Godsmark was born about 1846 in Brighton.

    2. Thomas Godsmark was born about 1849 in Cuckfield.  He married Mary Bowles on 15 November 1873 in Cuckfield.

    3. William Godsmark was born about 1853 in Cuckfield.  He died in Hailsham, Sussex in 1942.  William married Sarah Bowles in 1876.

    4. Mary Ann Godsmark was born about 1858 in Cuckfield.

    5. Adela Sarah Godsmark was born about 1865 in Cuckfield.

  3. John Tulett was baptised on 1 April 1827 in Cowfold.

  4. Eliza Tulett was born on 4 March 1830 and baptised on 21 March 1830 in Bolney.  The baptism register noted that her father was a labourer.

  5. Ann Tulett was baptised on 9 September 1832 in Cowfold.  In 1841 she was 8 years old and living with her father.  When the 1851 census was recorded she was 17 years old an living with her Uncle William Burtenshaw and Aunt Jemima Burtenshaw, at 17 Peter Street, Brighton.

    As Ann Tullett she married Thomas Partridge on 12 October 1851 in Cuckfield.  She was a spinster and he a bachelor and labourer.  They were both of full age and of Cuckfield.  The witnesses to the marriage were Henry Godsmark and Harriet Burtenshaw.

    Thomas was the son of Thomas Partridge.  In 1882 he was a railway porter.  He died before 1890.

    Thomas and Ann had the following children:

    1. Thomas James Partridge was born on 17 July 1854 in Brighton, Sussex.  He died in January 1949.

      Thomas married Mary Hallaway on 29 July 1890 in Fairlight, Sussex.

      Mary was born on 24 September 1860 in Brightling, Sussex and was the daughter of Stephen Hallaway (c1832-?) and Harriet Stonestreet (c1840-?).

      Thomas and Mary had 5 daughters.

    2. Phoebe Elizabeth Partridge was born about 1857 in Brighton.  When the 1881 census was recorded she was a 24 year old domestic servant in the home of Anne Simpson at 4 Woodland Road, Keymer, Sussex.

      Phoebe married Alfred Goddard on 4 March 1882.

      Alfred was born about 1853 in Cuckfield and was the son of George Goddard (c1816-?).

      Alfred and Phoebe had a daughter and 2 sons.

  6. Kitty Tullett was born about 1839, possibly in Brighton.  In 1841 she was 2 years old and living with her father.  When the 1851 census was recorded she was 12 years old and living with her Uncle William Burtenshaw and Aunt Jemima Burtenshaw.

 

 

William Burtenshaw married Jemima Stevens on 2 April 1837 in Hurstpierpoint, Sussex.  She was then a widow.

William Burtenshaw was baptised on 5 June 1814 in West Grinstead and was the son of Thomas Burtenshaw and Sophia Steer.

Might Jemima have been the daughter of William Goddard (c1762-?) and Ann Gallup (c1764-?)?  And, therefore, the sister of Ann Goddard who married James Tullett.

In 1841 the couple were living at Ansty within the parish of Cuckfield.  William was a 25 year old agricultural labourer and Jemima was 30.  With them on census were 2 of their children and 16 year old Elizabeth Burtenshaw, 5 year old William Burtenshaw, and 76 year old Ann Goddard.  When the 1851 census was recorded William was a 36 year old labourer and gave his place of birth as West Grinstead.  Jemima was 40 years old and said she was born in Cuckfield.  In 1861, 47 year old William was a sawyers labourer and he was living at 5 Elder Street, Brighton, along with his 50 year old wife Jemima.  Also with them was their son William and his wife, and their 2 youngest daughters.

William and Jemima had the following children:

  1. James Burtenshaw was baptised on 24 June 1838 in Hurstpierpoint.  In 1841 he was 3 years old.  He was 13 years old in 1851.

  2. Jemima Burtenshaw was born in the third quarter of 1840 in Cuckfield.  At the time of the 1841 census she was a year old.  She was 11 years old in 1851.

    Jemima married Richard William Bridger in the fourth quarter of 1857 in Brighton.

    Richard William was born about 1837 in Godalming, Surrey.

    When the 1861 census was recorded the couple and their young daughter were living in Park Terrace East, Horsham.  William was then a 24 year old cordwainer and Jemima was a 20 year old shoebinder.  They had the following known child:

    1. Elizabeth A. Bridger was born about 1860 in Brighton.  She was a year old in 1861.

  3. Emily Burtenshaw was born about 1842 in Cuckfield.  She was 9 years old in 1851.  In 1861 she was a 17 year old hair platter.

  4. Sarah Ann Burtenshaw was baptised on 12 July 1846 at St. Peter's in Brighton.  At the time of the 1851 census she was 5 years old.  In 1861 she was a 14 year old dressmaker's apprentice.

 

George Stevens and Jemima had the following son:

  1. William Stevens was baptised on 31 July 1836 in Hurstpierpoint.  In 1841 he may have been 5 year old William Burtenshaw.  When the 1861 census was recorded he would seem to have been 23 year old William Burtenshaw and he was then a railway porter, living with his 25 year old wife Lydia, who had been born Langley, Buckinghamshire.  The couple were living with his parents, William and Jemima.

George Stevens was born on 13 June 1808 and baptised on 10 July 1808 in Hurstpierpoint, and was the son of Henry Stevens and Sarah Spratley.

 

I don't think the following are connected:

William Stevens married Jemima Ashdown by banns on 29 January 1829 in Frant, Sussex.  He was a widower and she a widow and they were both of Frant.

Thomas Ashdown married Jemima Haffenden by banns on 1 May 1827 in Heathfield.  They were both of Heathfield.
