William TULETT (1825-1895)

and Lucy LAKER (c1821-1887)

 

St. George, West Grinstead, circa 1910 - from http://www.westsussexpast.org.uk/pictures/index.htmlWilliam Tulett and Lucy Laker married on 11 January 1845 at the parish church of St. George in West Grinstead, Sussex.  He was then a 21 year old bachelor and labourer.  She was a 24 year old spinster.  The witnesses to the marriage were John Hill and Mary Ann Laker.  William's father's name was not recorded on their marriage certificate.  (They were not my direct ancestors, but my mother's maiden name was Tullett and so I am interested in all Tullett families, just to make sure I'm on the right track with my own.)

William Tulett was born about 1824/5 in Brighton, Sussex, as per the 1851-1891 census.  He may have died aged 70 years and his death registered in the first quarter of 1895 in the East Preston registration district.

The St. Nicholas, Brighton baptism register records just one William Tulett baptised at about that time.  He was baptised on 10 June 1827 and was the son of James Tulett and Mary Ford, and in 1851 he was unmarried and living with his father in his uncle's home.

Another William Tulett was baptised on 29 May 1825 at the parish church of St. Mary in Shipley, Sussex, the son of William Tullett (1799-1878) and Charlotte Woodman (c1802-1886).  In 1891 that William was living in Brighton along with his wife Rosina Reeves, whom he had married in 1854 and his 53 year old brother Albert.

Might William have been the illegitimate son of Mary Tulett (1809-?)?  She had an illegitimate son baptised in 1826, although she may have been slightly too young to have been William's mother.

The Sussex Poor Law Database records that on 20 August 1829 a removal order was issued to William Tulett and 3 children, namely, 5 year old William, 2 year old James and 8 week old John.  The parishes involved were Brighton and West Grinstead.  Might William senior have married Jemima Jolly by banns on 29 January 1824 in Brighton?  He was then a bachelor and she a widow and they were both of Brighton.  As Jemima Patching she had previously married James Jolley on 25 March 1815 in Beddingham.

Lucy Laker was baptised on 22 April 1821 in West Grinstead.  She was the daughter of Richard Laker (1790-?) and Lucy Hillman (1793-?).  She may have died aged 67 years and her death registered in the fourth quarter of 1887 in the East Preston registration district.

William and Lucy were witnesses to the marriage of Peter Laker and Mary Ann Patching on 18 November 1843 in West Grinstead.

At the time of the 1841 census both William and Lucy were living in the home of Michael Botting and his wife Sarah at Dialpost in West Grinstead.  Lucy was a 20 year old servant and William a 15 year old agricultural labourer.

In 1851 the couple and their 4 children were living at Hookland Lodge in Shipley and William was an agricultural labourer.  Also with them on census night was a visitor, 32 year old unmarried Eliza Jenden who was a pauper born in Wiston, Sussex.

The 1861 census records the couple and their 7 children were back in Dialpost and William was still an agricultural labourer.

In 1871 the couple and their 3 children were living in New Lodge, Dialpost and William was an agricultural labourer.  They also had a lodger living with them, unmarried 22 year old Caroline Martin who was a schoolmistress who had been born in Lambeth, Surrey.

When the 1881 census was recorded the couple were still living at New Lodge, Dialpost in West Grinstead and William was an agricultural labour.  Their surname was then recorded as Tulitt.  Also living with them on census night were their 7 year old nephew Allie J. T. Cripps and 53 year old unmarried lodger, Elizabeth Harding who was a district visitor.

William was a 66 year old widower and general labourer in 1891 and he was then lodging with the family of George Greenyer and his wife Julia at Pr**dean Cottage in West Tarring, Sussex.
