Peter TULLET (c1700-1748)

and Elizabeth GRATWICK (1700-1786)

 

Peter Tullet and Elizabeth Gratwick were my 6x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 3 November 1726 in Cowfold, Sussex.  He was then of Slaugham, Sussex.

Peter Tullet's date and place of birth/baptism are uncertain.  He may have been baptised on 1 February 1703/4 in Horsham, Sussex and have been the son of Peter Toolet (1675-?) and Mary Locket (1679-?).  Or he may have been the son of Edward Tullett and Martha Mitchel who married on 9 February 1691 in Ifield, which I think is more likely.  Or he may have been the son of John Tullett (1654-?) and Phillippa (c1660-1736) who married before 1683.  (See notes below.)  Peter may have been buried on 9 December 1748 in Slaugham, Sussex.

Elizabeth Gratwick was baptised on 5 January 1700/1 in West Grinstead, Sussex.  She was the daughter of Joseph Gratwicke (1669-1748) and Mary Arnold (1675-1735).  She may have been buried on 12 January 1786 in Slaugham as Elizabeth Toolet an aged widow.

 

Peter Tullet and Elizabeth Gratwick had 10 known children:

  1. Mary Tillet was baptised on 20 April 1727 in Slaugham.

    As Mary Toolet she may have married John Comber by banns on 20 April 1758 in Horsham, Sussex.  He was then a husbandman and they were both of Horsham.

    John may have been baptised on 30 September 1727 in Horsham and have been the son of Henry Comber and Elizabeth Burnell.

    John and Mary may have had the following children:

    1. John Comber was baptised on 16 June 1765 in Horsham.

    2. Thomas Comber was baptised on 10 April 1768 in Horsham.

  2. Elizabeth Tullett was baptised on 9 January 1728/9 in Slaugham.  She may have been buried in Slaugham on 10 January 1748/9, but unfortunately the burial register only records Elizabeth Tullet was buried and gives no other identifying details.

  3. Sarah Tullett was baptised on 13 January 1730/1 in Slaugham.  Only her father's name was recorded in the baptism register.  She was buried in Slaugham on 24 June 1743, and the burial register recorded that she was the daughter of Peter Tullett.

  4. Peter Tullet was baptised on 10 February 1731/2 in Slaugham.  He married Mary Peter in 1757.  (They have their own page.)

  5. John Tullett, my 5x Great Grandfather, was baptised on 23 January 1733/4 in Slaugham.  He married Elizabeth Michell in 1760.  (They have their own page.)

  6. Edward Tullett was baptised on 1 February 1735/6 in Slaugham.  He married Elizabeth Whiting in 1760.  (They have their own page.)

  7. William Tullett was baptised on 12 March 1737/8 in Slaugham.  He married Catherine Peters in 1773.  (They have their own page.)

  8. Phillas Tullett was baptised on 30 September 1739 in Slaugham.  Only her father's name was recorded in the baptism register.

    As Phyllis Toullet she married John Budd on 25 October 1760 in Lancing, Sussex.

  9. Samuel Tullett was baptised on 24 April 1741 in Slaugham.

    Samuel may have married Maria, but I have been unable to find their marriage.

    Samuel and Maria may have been the parents of:

    1. Samuel Tulet was baptised on 5 April 1786 in Cuckfield, Sussex aged 14 years.  The baptism register records that he was born on 18th inst.  He may have married Sarah West by banns on 18 September 1798 in Cuckfield.  He was a bachelor and she a spinster and they were both of Cuckfield.

  10. Jane Tullet was baptised on 27 July 1746 in Slaugham.  (I think I must have picked up her baptism from the Bishop's Transcripts, as there is a gap in the Slaugham baptism register between 10 January 1745 and 2 April 1749.)

    Jane married John Longhurst by licence on 20 December 1767 in Slaugham.  They were both then of Slaugham.  He signed his name whilst she made her X mark.  The witnesses were William Habe and Alice Mitchell.

    John was baptised on 13 June 1731 in Slaugham and was the son of William Longust and Rachell Browne.

    John and Jane had 3 known children:

    1. William Longust was baptised on 23 April 1768 in Slaugham.  As William Longhurst he may have married Sarah Harwood by banns on 19 December 1791 in Horsham.  However, William was then said to be of Ashstead, Surrey.  Sarah was of Horsham.

    2. John Longhurst was baptised on 28 March 1773 in Slaugham.  As Jno Longhurst of Balcombe he may have married Frances Parsons of Slaugham by banns on 15 January 1797 in Slaugham.

    3. Elizabeth Longhurst was baptised on 15 June 1777 in Slaugham.  She married Philip Weston by banns on 21 July 1798 in Horsham.  She was then a spinster and he a widower and they were both of Horsham.

Where do Edward and Peter fit into the puzzle?  I think the Peter is the Peter who married Elizabeth Gratwick - they named a son Edward in 1735.  I infer from the above deeds, that Edward was senior to Peter, and  that Edward died between 1729 and 1737.  Therefore, could Edward have been the father of Peter?  Or was he an elder brother or uncle?  Clearly lots more untangling to do.

 

Edward Toolet and Ann were the parents of:

  1. Charity Toolet was baptised on 25 July 1686 in Cowfold.  Her parents were then of St. Leonard's forest in Beeding.  She may have married Henry Wady on 20 February 1725/6 in Bolney, Sussex.  She was then of Cowfold.

Did Edward then marry Martha Mitchell on 9 February 1691/2 in Ifield, Sussex?

 


Alice Mitchell was a witness to the marriage of Jane Tullett and John Longhurst on 20 December 1767 in Slaugham.  As Alice Martin she had married John Mitchell by banns on 11 October 1767 in Slaugham.  He was then of Cuckfield and she of Slaugham.  She was born and baptised as Ealce Marten on 18 January 1742/3 in Slaugham and was the daughter of William Marten and Mary Renals.  Alice was buried in Cuckfield on 8 April 1828.  John may have been baptised on 19 May 1745 in Cuckfield and have been the son of John Mitchell and Mary.
