Thomas William TULLETT (1862-1911)

and Emma Charlotte GOBLE (1863-1951)

 

St. Nicholas, Portslade - from http://www.stnicolas.standrewportslade.btinternet.co.uk/index.htmlThomas William Tullett and Emma Charlotte Goble were my Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married by banns on 16 August 1884 at the parish church of St. Nicolas in Portslade, Sussex.  Thomas a bachelor and Emma a spinster.  They were both aged 22 years and were both of Crown Road, Portslade.  The witnesses to their marriage were Edmund Goble and Sarah Ward.

Thomas William Tullett (1863-1911)Thomas William Tullett was born on 22 March 1862 in the Union Workhouse in Cuckfield, Sussex.  His name at birth was registered as Thomas Tulett and he was the illegitimate son of 5 41 Catherine Tullett (1836-1924).  His father was believed to be Thomas Setford (1838-1905), who married Catherine in July 1862.  He was baptised as Thomas William Tulett on 1 June 1862 at the parish church of Cuckfield.  Tom was a labourer and gasworks stoker and may also have been a brickmaker.  He died on 19 March 1911 at 14 Ellen Street, Portslade-by-Sea, Sussex.  His cause of death was rupture of aneurism of innominate artery and an inquest was held.  My mother told me that he died in his sleep and that his wife had not realised when she arose in the morning.  She went downstairs to prepare breakfast and when he didn't appear or respond to her call, she went up and found him dead in bed.  Mum also told me that blood from the rupture had soaked through the pillow and mattress and formed on the floor boards beneath the bed, and that no matter how many times Emma tried scrubbing, the stain would not come out the wood.

Emma Charlotte Goble was born on 24 November 1863 at Newgate Lane, Fareham, Hampshire.  She was the eldest daughter and second child of 5 30 Edmund Goble (c1841-1911) and Lydia Pearson (1837-1899).  She was baptised on 13 August 1869 in Portslade.  She died on 10 May 1951 at 14 Ellen Street, Portslade-by-Sea.  Her cause of death was cerebral thrombosis and chronic hyperpiesia.  Her death was registered by her daughter I. E. Tullet, who was of the same address and present at the death.

When the 1911 census was recorded, Emma was a 46 year old widow living at 14 Ellen Street, Portslade, along with her mother (should be mother-in-law) 74 year old Catherine Tullett and 7 children.

 

Thomas William Tullett and Emma Charlotte Goble had 10 known children:

  1. Emma Charlotte Tullett was baptised on 6 September 1885 at St. Nicolas, Portslade and died later that year.

  2. Sarah Ann Tullett was born on 10 November 1886 and baptised at the aged of 27 on 1 December 1913 at St. Andrew, Portslade.  She died age 73 years and her death was registered in the fourth quarter of 1959 in the Brighton registration district.

    Sarah Ann was confirmed at St. Andrew's church in 1913 at which time she was of Church Road and it was noted in the margin of the confirmation book that she had left.  My mother tells me that she was in service in Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire.  Mum also tells me that Sarah was a very heavy smoker, to which her mother Emma would say "if God had meant you to smoke, you'd have been born with a chimney".  Sarah did not marry but may have been the mother of an illegitimate son (see notes below).  I have not yet found her in the 1911 census.

  3. Lydia Tullett was born on 7 December 1888 and baptised on 26 November 1902 at St. Andrew, Portslade.  She worked at Flynn's, Portslade where she ironed clothes.  My mum thinks she died on 3 March 1968, which would seem to agree with her death registration in the first quarter of 1968 in the Worthing registration district.  She did not marry.  In 1911 she was a 22 year old laundry worker and living at home.

  4. Thomas William Tullett, my Grandfather, was born on 20 March 1891 in Portslade.  He married Annie Elise Stillaway in 1920.  (They have their own page.)

  5. David Henry Tullett was born on 7 March 1893 and baptised on 11 March 1903 at St. Andrew in Portslade.  He died aged 65 years and his death was registered in the second quarter of 1958 in the Brighton registration district.  In 1911 he was living at home and his was then an 18 year old general labourer.

    David married Rhoda A. Penfold in the fourth quarter of 1915 in the Steyning registration district.

    Rhoda Annie Penfold was born on 2 September 1896 in Brighton and was the daughter of Charles Penfold (1857-?) and Annie (possible Annie Charman who may have married Charles in the third quarter of 1895 in the Steyning registration district as his second wife).  She died aged 77 years and her death was registered in the first quarter of 1974 in the Hove registration district.

    My mum told me that David and her father Thomas were very alike and could have almost passed as twins.  The last time my mum remembers seeing her Uncle David was at her father's funeral, when she said David looked very ill.

    David and Rhoda had 4 children:

    1. Rhoda A. Tullett was born in the third quarter of 1916 in the Steyning registration district.  She died aged 45 years and her death was reigstered in the first quarter of 1962 in the Brighton registration district.  Rhoda married Reginald Foster in the third quarter of 1937 in the Brighton registration district.

    2. Dorothy Olive Tullett was born on 13 July 1919 in the Steyning registration district.  She died aged 81 years in June 2001 in Brighton.  Dorothy married Chester M. Markham in the third quarter of 1943 in the Hove registration district.  Chester Almer Markham was born on 6 October 1910 and died aged 75 years in July 1986 in the Hove registration district.

    3. Daisy Tullett (1897-1977)David H. Tullett was born in the fourth quarter of 1922 in the Steyning registration district.

  6. Daisy Isabel Tullett was born on 3 May 1897 and baptised on 11 March 1903 at St. Andrew in Portslade.  In 1912 at the age of 15 years she was confirmed at St. Andrew's and it was noted in the confirmation book that she attended regularly.  She was then of 14 Ellen Street.  Daisy, like her sisters, did not marry.  My mum told me that Daisy was once engaged but called the wedding off when she was told by a friend that her boyfriend had been seen with another woman.  She worked at Flynn's in Portslade where she dyed hats and ribbons to match.  My mum thinks she died on 22 October 1977, which agrees with her death registration in the fourth quarter of 1977 in the Hove registration district.  In 1911 she was 13 years old and at school.

  7. Edmund Tullett was born on 14 September 1899 and baptised on 11 March 1903 at St. Andrew in Portslade.  My mum thinks he died of throat cancer.  His death was registered in the first quarter of 1949 in the Brighton registration district and he was then 49 years old.  In 1914 at the age of 15 he was confirmed at St. Andrew's.Edmund Tullett (1899-1949) and Mollie Murphy  He was then of 14 Ellen Street.  In 1911 he was 11 years old and at school.

    Edmund married Matilda R. Murphy in the third quarter of 1924.  She was known to Mum as Auntie Mollie.

    Matilda Rose Murphy was born on 29 October 1904 in Brighton.  She was the daughter of Joseph Murphy  (c1875-?) and Matilda Martha Sergeant (1871-1956).  She died aged 82 years and her death was registered in May 1987 in the Hove registration district.  When the 1911 census was recorded she was 6 years old and living with her parents at 28 Conway Street, Hove.  Her father was then a house painter and he had been born in Shoreditch, London and her mother was born in Cambridge.

    Mum told me that Mollie had a good singing voice and that she had had her leg amputated.  Matilda Rose Murphy was born in the fourth quarter of 1904 in the Steyning registration district.

    Edmund and Mollie had 2 children:

    1. Molly Rose Tullett was born on 1 November 1925 in the Steyning registration district.  She died aged 68 years in February 1994 in Brighton.  Molly married James F. Albrighton in the fourth quarter of 1945 in the Hove registration district.

    2. Patrick E. Tullett was born in the second quarter of 1933 in the Steyning registration district.  He joined the RAF and had just passed his exams when he was taken ill and diagnosed with a brain tumour and died at the age of 23.

  8. Emily Eva Tullett was born on 19 September 1901 and baptised on 11 March 1903 at St. Andrew in Portslade.  My mum told me that Emily was very religious and taught at the Baptist Chapel.  She worked at Montague Edwards, a chemist shop in Portslade, as a shop assistant.  Ivy Tullett (1903-1990)She died of peritonitis on the 39th birthday; 19 September 1940.  Mum said she had refused to see a doctor.  Emily was buried in the Victoria Road cemetery in Portslade.  She did not marry.  In 1911 she was 9 years old and at school.

  9. Ivy Ellen Tullett was born on 15 January 1903, according to the baptism register, but my mum says her birthday was the 16th, which is the date recorded on her death certificate.  Ivy was baptised on 11 March 1903 at St. Andrew in Portslade.  On Palm Sunday, 13 April 1930, at the age of 27 she was confirmed at St. Andrew.  She was then living at 14 Ellen Street.  She did not marry and remained at home acting as housekeeper to her mother.  Her death was registered in the February 1990 in the Hove registration district.  In 1911 she was 8 years old and at school.

NOTES

On 3 March 1912 an Albert Edward Tullett was baptised at St. Andrew in Portslade.  He had been born on 14 July 1911 and was the son of a single woman of 14 Ellen Street.  My mum had never heard of him and he was never talked about, but given the choice between her Aunts Sarah and Lydia as the possible mother, she thinks Albert was most likely to have been the son of Sarah.  My mum's Aunt Daisy was only 14 in 1911 so probably too young.  However, when the 1911 census was recorded Lydia was living home in Ellen Street and Sarah was somewhere else.

My mum also told me that her father had warned his daughters that if they became pregnant whilst unmarried he would disown them.
