John RICE TUTT (c1715-1755)

and Mary WEAVER (c1715-?)

 

John Rice and Mary Weaver married on 3 June 1739 in Battle, Sussex.  They were both then of Herstmonceux, Sussex.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

John Rice's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might he have been the son of James Rice and Elizabeth Gower who married on 18 September 1710 in Dallington, Sussex.  The couple were both then of Westham, Sussex.

Mary Weaver's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  Might she have been the daughter of Richard Weaver and Priscilla Sanders who married on 5 June 1715 in Herstmonceux?  Richard was then of Dallington whilst Priscilla was of Herstmonceux.

From A2A:  By his will of 1735, John Tutt of Hailsham, gent, left his estate to his kinsman John Rice in tail with an ultimate remainder to Edward Luxford.  Tutt died in 1740 and on the death in 1755 of John Rice, now called John Rice Tutt in accordance with Tutt's will, his youngest son Richard Tutt, an infant, was admitted in 1758.  He barred the entail in 1782 and after various mortgages sold the whole property in 1807 to William Vine of Willingdon, yeoman, who in 1810 sold off tenements 2 and 3 above to James Dippery Willard of Eastbourne, gent (20).

(John Tutt married Mary Luxford on 20 October 1715 in Folkington, Sussex, at which time they were both of Hailsham.)
