  1. James Thomas NUTT c. 2 May 1818, Faversham, Kent, England.

    Notes:
    James Thomas, born 1818, married during February of 1840, Sarah Ruck, the daughter of the church sexton, John Ruck (see the famiily of Thomas Ruck and Elizabeth Broadbridge for more information). Like his father, James was a mariner and he and his wife lived close by his father on the east side of Abbey Street in Faversham.

    As of 1851 James was continuing in his occupation of dredger but the family, now including two children, had moved over to Conduit Row in the town. James and Sarah had had many children, twelve in all, but tragically most of them died during infancy. At the 1851 census their daughter, Sarah, was staying with her grandparents, John and Sarah Ruck.

    By 1861 James was employed as a sexton (an officer of the church charged with its' care and belongings and with bell-ringing and grave-digging duties). James, Sarah, son, William also then employed as an oyster dredger, and daughter, Agnes were living together on Church Lane. Daughter, Sarah, then aged 16 was visiting with a woman by the name of Harriet Lawes (Faversham, schedule #116). Harriet was a widow aged 57 years who had been born at Challock and Sarah was shown as being unmarried aged 16 years, born at Faversham.

    Although still living at 4 Church Lane in 1871, James' wife, Sarah, had died in the intervening years. He had remarried a woman from Canterbury by the name of Sophia. She was 14 years James' senior. James continued to work as a sexton of the church. Daughter, Agnes had married and was living in Selling with her husband, John Thursten. Sadly, James' son William had died the year previously. No further mention has been found of daughter, Sarah.

    James and Sophia, by 1881, had moved to Millhouse, Wandsworth, Surrey. It is entirely unknown what prompted the move. He was working as a road labourer while Sophia worked as a milliner. They also had two lodgers living with them but there appears to be no family connection.

Generation: 3
  1. Matthew NUTT c. 25 Dec 1785, Faversham, Kent, England; bur. 14 Apr 1866, Faversham, Kent, England.

    Notes:
    Age on burial was recorded as 80 and residence as Oyster Court.

    Matthew and his wife, Ann Weeks of Ospringe, had ten children during their marriage. Sadly, four of the earliest born children did not survive to adolescence. As of June 1841 the family was living on the east side of Abbey Street close to his son James and daughter-in-law, Sarah (nee Ruck). Matthew was employed as a dredger, as was James. Living at home with Matthew were all five of their surviving daughters. Ann had died a few weeks before the 1841 census was taken.

    By 1851 the family was found to still be living on Abbey Street with Matthew still following his vocation of dredging. Living with him at that time was his daughter, mary, her husband, Frederick Bunting, and one grandchild, Ann Weeks Bunting just 18 months old.

    By 1861, despite his age, Matthew was still working. He had, however, switched from the heavy work of dredging to that of a mariner. He was still living with his daughter Mary and her family who by then had moved over to Oyster Court.

Generation: 4
  1. Thomas NUTT b. 1745; bur. 6 Jan 1839, Faversham, Kent, England.

    Notes:
    Our Thomas Nutt, Senior was born circa 1745, based on the age recorded on his burial. He married Mary Herman on 21 October 1770 at Faversham after publication of banns. Thomas was described as being "of Faversham" but no christening for him appears in any of the church registers. There is no direct evidence of Thomas' occupation however I suspect that he was somehow involved in the fishing industry. His sons were variously a fisherman, dredger, and mariner and Thomas, Senior rented a large tract of property in Ospringe between 1790 and 1794 from the Earl of Guildford. That property was assessed at GB32 per year and must have been some form of warehouse operation. The further good standing of Thomas Nutt and his son, Thomas, is evidenced by the fact that both were nominated as burgesses of Faversham and appear on the burgess rolls from 1837 through 1840. As a burgess of the town both Thomas, Senior and Thomas, Junior were free men and therefor entitled to vote. The rated property which qualified both of them as burgesses was located on Abbey Street.

    During 1757 an Edward Nutt was assessed as both owner and occupier of property on Court and Abbey Streets in Faversham. Unfortunately, there is an almost 20-year gap in the land tax assessments between 1762 and 1780 so it is impossible to determine from that source if a later assessment included this Edward Nutt or if the property that he had occupied eventually flowed through to our Thomas.

    The next assessment in Faversham is that of Thomas Nutt as tenant of Richard Pratt during the years 1780 through 1782. As of 30 May 1783, however, Thomas has purchased property which he continued to own and occupy through 1793. Again, a gap in the land tax assessment records occurrs from 1793 to 1831. From the manorial records for the manor of Faversham in 1802 Thomas Nutt appeared before the court to bring his tenure of manorial holdings into good standing. He was recorded as being both owner and occupier since 1782 of a messuage and premises in Abbey Street East in the town. Occupiers of adjacent property, two on Abbey Street and two in Court Street "or the passage behind" were recorded as James Nutt, Matthew Harmon, John Harmon and Willson Stephen Admans. James Nutt we know is the son of Thomas. Matthew and John Harmon are also related by marriage as brothers-in-law of Thomas Nutt. I have not, however, determined any relationship between the Admans fellow and either the Harmon or Nutt families.

    A brief note appeared in the manorial court records during 1839, 1840 and 1843 indicating that a John Pay was purchaser of the holdings of Thomas Nutt, Senior. Unfortunately, the entries in 1839 and 1840 were only very brief and no further details were provided. A full entry was recorded in the court during 1841 so it is quite curious why mention needed to be made again during 1843 of the transaction.

    There was also a John Nutt who was buried at Faversham during 1788 at the age of 59 years (bc 1729). It is quite possible that John was an uncle or older brother of our Thomas, Senior. Again, no christening has been found in Faversham or neighbouring parishes for John. Similarly, an Ann Nutt married a Thomas Allen during 1779 at Faversham. All of the known children of that couple were christened at Selling, the native parish of Thomas Allen. This Ann was born circa 1759 and could possibly be the daughter of the unidentified John Nutt. Alternatively, she may be a younger sister of our Thomas Nutt, senior.

    From the files of Arthur Percival, M.B.E., M.A. D.Litt., F.S.A., of the Faversham Fleur de-lis Heritage Centre, the following information was received by letter dated 1 September 2000 addressed to Janet M. Epps, (a copy of which was forwarded to me by Janet), concerning this Thomas Nutt: "Thomas Nutt (1745-1839) paid a rate on a house on the east side of Abbey Street on 20 December 1785. He was also a party to a lease (April 1782) which related to 93-94 Abbey Street and 11-12 Oyster Court (at the rear of 93-4). Whether he actually lived in any of these I cannot say, but the probability is that he lived at either 93 or 94 Abbey Street - one of them, at least, a medieval timber-framed building which still survives. He was a dredger (ie oyster dredger) according to a 1794 directory.

    Notes:
    A release of recognizance issued to Thomas Ruck was found among the Faversham Borough Sessions records. That release was given as Thomas Ruck had made arrangements for the support of his illegitimate child who was born to "Elizabeth Broadbridge". That release, therefor, confirms two pieces of information: 1) that Mary was indeed Thomas' child; and 2) the maiden surname of Elizabeth Broade [sic] was indeed Broadbridge. See the citation under Elizabeth Broadbridge.
