Peter TULLETT (1576-?)

and Alice JOYCE (c1580-?)


Peter Tullett and Alice Joyce married on 1 June 1601 in Ardingly, Sussex.  (Another Peter Tullet married Rachell Ireland on 27 April 1600 in Wisborough Green, Sussex. And he may then, as Peter Tulat, have married Margery Garton on 23 June 1605 also in Wisborough Green.)

Peter Tullett may have been baptised on 4 May 1576 in Worth, Sussex, and have been the son of Edward Tullett (c1540-1589) and Mary Senty (c1540-1587).  He was a hammerman of Ardingly.  He was mentioned in the 1609 will of Edmond Chalner, by which he received 20 shillings.

Alice Joyce's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.


Peter Tullett and Alice Joyce had 6 known children:

  1. Elizabeth Tullet was baptised on 13 September 1602 in Ardingly.  She was appointed the executrix of her husband's will.

    Elizabeth married Thomas Rowland, as his third wife, on 6 October 1629 in Horsham, Sussex.

    Thomas was baptised on 3 October 1591 and buried on 4 April 1651 in Horsham.  He was the son of Thomas Rowland (1548-1618) and Jane Tuckney (1556-1596).  His father was a butcher.  His will was dated 10 October 1647 and proved on 20 November 1654.  Thomas was a yoeman.  He first married Jane who was buried in Horsham on 1 June 1620.  He then married Joane Sturt, widow of Edward Sturt, on 28 February 1622.  She was buried on 12 September 1628 in Horsham.

    Thomas had 5 children by his first wife, 3 of whom died young, none by his second and the following son with Elizabeth:

    1. John Rowland was baptised on 4 August 1633 in Horsham.  He was mentioned in this father's will.

  2. William Tullett was baptised on 12 January 1604/5 in Ardingly.  (Another William Tulet was baptised on 20 May 1610 in Pulborough, Sussex, and he probably married Alice Hollands in Billingshurst in 1634.)

    William may have married Susan and they may have been the parents of:

    1. Sarah Tellet was baptised on 16 July 1633 in Sutton, Sussex.

    2. Peter Tyllet was baptised on 21 September 1635 in Sutton.  Both his parents names were recorded in the baptism register.  Did he marry Hester Shaw married on 11 April 1667 in Horsham, Sussex?

  3. John Tullett was baptised on 6 September 1607 in Ardingly.

  4. Edmond Tullett was baptised on 7 October 1610 in Ardingly.  He may have been buried as Edward Tulett on 27 February 1658 in Shere.

    As Edmond Tillett he may have married Alce Elstedd on 27 September 1640 in Shere, Surrey.

    They had the following daughter:

    1. Alic Talett was baptised on 5 December 1641 in Shere.

  5. Sarah Tullett was baptised on 11 July 1613 in Ardingly.

  6. Edward Tullett was baptised on 4 February 1615/6 in Ardingly.

    Edward may have married Elizabeth Eellcott on 1 May 1641 at St. Mary's in Guildford, Surrey.  Or he may have married Jane Stedman on 1 July 1647 in Horsham, Sussex.  Or he may have married Ann sometime before 1660.

    There was another Edward Tullett born in 1618 and yet another Edward Tullett born in 1620.  I think 1616 married Elizabeth, 1618 to Jane and 1620 to Ann - but I could be wrong!


Henry Tullett son of Peter and Alice, was buried on 24 January 1638/9 in Nuthurst.  (I don't think this was the above couple.)
