  • Notes 
    • John William Nutt does not appear in Faversham until the time of the 1861 census so it is highly likely that he had run off to sea in his teenage years. Certainly during his early married life, John William maintained a roving spirit. John William's first child, John William Junior, was born at Flushing, Cornwall followed 1 year later with the birth of the second child at Southampton in 1858. John's third and last child was born back at Faversham during 1860 - Alfred James Lemon Nutt.

      As of the time of the 1861 census John and family were living on Wool Quay in the town. Unfortunately, he met an untimely death drowning in the Swale in early August of 1861. His wife remarried a man from Chatham by the name of Richard Martin. All three children were still living at home, then being 15 Fielding Street. John, Jr. was working as a mariner.

      Most of the family does not appear on the 1881 census and had likely moved out of Kent. Alfred appears boarding with a John Cooper at 96 Lynton Road, Bermondsey. At that time he was working as a warehouseman.
