John TULLET (1734-1809)

and Elizabeth MICHELL (c1735-1815)


St. Mary's, Slaugham, circa 1910 - from Tullett and Elizabeth Michell were my 5x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  The were married by banns by the Rector John Bristed on 27 April 1760 in the parish church of St. Mary's in Slaugham, Sussex.  They were both then of Slaugham.  John was described as a labourer and signed his name.  Elizabeth made her X mark.  The witnesses were John Godsmark and William Hale, who both signed their names.  The banns were published on 6, 13 and 20 April 1760 in Slaugham.

John Tullett was baptised on 23 March 1733/4 in Slaugham.  He was the fifth child and second son of Peter Tullet (c1700-1749) and Elizabeth Gratwick (1700-1786).  John died a poor man aged 75 years and was buried on 3 August 1809 in Slaugham.  On 14 February 1765, John was most probably a witness to the marriage of James Burchall and Mary Sheppard in Slaugham.

Elizabeth Michell's date and place of birth/baptism are not certain.  After her husband's death she may have gone to live with her son James Tulet in Cuckfield, as she died there age 79 years and was buried back in Slaugham on 5 February 1815.  Therefore, she was born about 1735/6.  She may have been baptised in Cuckfield on either 13/17 August 1735, the daughter of Richard Mitchel and Mary Jenner, or on 8 April 1736, the daughter of John Mitchell and Mary.  One of them as Elizabeth Michel may have married Stephen Comber on 9 January 1758 in Slaugham.  My guess is that 1735 married John and 1736 to Stephen.


John Tullett and Elizabeth Michell had 6 known children:

  1. John Tullet was baptised on 15 February 1761 in Slaugham.  He may have died aged 57 years and have been buried on 25 August 1819 in Slaugham.  (The IGI says he died on 24 November 1816.)

    John may have married Mary Streeter by banns on 8 May 1793 at St. Nicholas, Brighton, Sussex.  He did have a cousin John Tullett born in 1758.

  2. James Tullett, my 4x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 18 March 1764 in Slaugham.  He married Sarah French (1765-1840) in 1787.  (They have their own page.)

  3. Bette Tullett was baptised on 16 February 1766 in Slaugham.

  4. William Tullett was baptised on 5 August 1770 in Slaugham.

    William married Ann Streeter on 18 June 1797 in Cuckfield.  I have a note of several possible baptisms for Ann, so would need to find her age at death/burial to get a better idea of when she was born.

    William and Ann had 6 or 8 known children: 

    1. William Tullett was baptised on 3 June 1798 in Slaugham.  He married Ann Levett on 24 October 1821 in Slaugham. They were then both of Slaugham.  The witnesses were Mary Bains and William Johnson.

    2. Ann Tullett was baptised on 1 July 1800 in Slaugham and buried there on 29 January 1801.

    3. Sarah Tullett was baptised on 13 September 1801 in Slaugham.  She may have married James Streeter on 26 May 1822 in Horsham.

    4. James Tulett was born on 29 September 1803 and baptised on 27 November 1803 in Crawley.  I'm not if James was part of this family.

    5. John Tullett was baptised on 13 December 1807 in Slaugham and buried there on 24 November 1861.

    6. Mary Tullett was baptised on 12 March 1809 in Slaugham and buried there in April 1811.

    7. Mary Tullett was baptised on 3 May 1812 in Slaugham.

    8. Edward Tullett was born on 17 September 1814 in Worth and baptised on 6 November 1814 in Crawley.  The baptism register described his father as a labourer.  I'm not sure if Edward was part of this family.

  5. Edward Tullett was baptised on 14 February 1773 in Slaugham.  He may have been buried on either 24 March 1775 or 4 November 1781, both in Slaugham.  The burial register only records that Edward Tullett was buried, and no further details to determine to whom the burials apply.  He did have 2 cousins:  Edward Tullett born in 1765 and Edward Tullett born in 1776

  6. Mary Tullett was baptised on 15 February 1780 in Slaugham.  She may have married Edward Cranston on 21 December 1796 in Itchingfield, Sussex, or John Mann on 22 September 1806 in Horsham.


Stephen and Elizabeth named their children:  Stephen, John, Mary, William, Bet and Sarah.
