  • Notes 
    • Throughout his life and, indeed, on every document available, save the original christening entry, Stephen was referred to as James. I found this to be highly unusual but eventually found the answer in a handwritten note that had been inserted amongst the pages of the Faversham parish register during 1800/1801. There is something mysterious about James and his family. For some reason he segregated himself from the rest of his family and never did their paths seem to cross. He married Mercy Taylor of Minster, Sheppey on 3 March 1798. It was the witnesses to the marriage that first brought to light for me that Stephen and James were one and the same person: Mary Nutt and her soon-to-be-husband, John Milsted, were the witnesses for the marriage of James and Mercy.

      Of James and Mercy's eleven children only 4 survived. Sarah, his third child died at age 17, Catherine died at age 15, Mercy at 23 and Sarah Eliza at 18. Mercy did have one child - Mary Sills Nutt christened on 24 January 1830. Unfortunately, this little girl also died during March of 1835.

      At the time of Mercy's (James' wife) death in February of 1847 the family was living on Abbey Street. By 1861, however, James had moved over to Hog Island and despite his advanced age was still working as a dredger.

      A handwritten note was inserted amongst the pages of the parish register around 1800/1801. The note had been written by the then vicar of the Faversham parish church indicating that Thomas Nutt, Senior had appeared at the church to examine the christening of his son James and found it to be in error. He then requested that the name recorded on the christening, which was Stephen, be corrected to read James.
