  • In 1909 at Nebraska WILBER DEHAVEN - The gentleman herein named is prominently known as a citizen of integrity and worth who has given much of his time and financial aid in the upbuilding of his section, and who has always been found standing on the side of right and doing his full share toward meeting and providing for the public welfare. Mr. DeHaven resides in section 13, township 30, range 47, Dawes county, where he has a pleasant home and valuable estate. He also has a homestead over in Sioux county, Nebraska, where he spends a part of the time. Mr. DeHaven was born in Washington county, Pennsylvania, in 1874. His father, Jehn DeHaven, was a farmer by occupation, and settled in Dawes county in 1885. Both he and his wife, who was Miss Margaret Beazell, were of American stock. They were among the pioneers in this region and raised their family here, going through all of the experiences familiar to the early settlers in western Nebraska. When our subject was two years of age they left Pennsylvania and settled in Marshall county, Iowa, where they farmed up to the time of locating in this county, where they took up a homestead south of Antelope Springs. Here their first building was a log cabin and they lived in this for about nine years, proving up on their land. Later they moved near Hay Springs to give the children the benefit of the better schools, and the mother still resides in that locality, the father having died in 1899. At the age of nineteen years Mr. DeHaven started out to make his own way, going on a rented farm, on which he lived for some time, then began a home for himself. He took a homestead and devoted all his time and energy to building it up and improving it, gradually adding to the place, and is now owner of a fine ranch consisting of four hundred and eighty acres, on which he engages in mixed farming and stock raising. His place is well improved, and he is one of the prosperous and progressive agriculturists of the section, highly esteemed by all as an energetic farmer and good business man. Mr. DeHaven was married in 1895 to Miss Lulu Ferrel, daughter of Elijah Ferrel, an old settler in Sheridan county. The Ferrels were among the pioneers in that vicinity, locating there in 1884, and Mrs. DeHaven was raised and educated there. To Mr. and Mrs. DeHaven the following children have been born: Ida, aged eleven years; Delbert, aged eight years; Francis, aged four years; and an infant two months old. Mr. DeHaven has served his township in different capacities, having been on the school board for some years, and is active in all local affairs. His is a Republican in political belief.6

  • Julia was born on a farm northwest of Spink in Union County. She was baptized and confirmed in the Brule Creek Lutheran church of which she was a lifetime member. In 1943 the church flags were presented by her in memory of her husband. On Feb. 20, 1945, she held a farm sale, listing the cattle, hogs, chickens, grain, farm machinery, minor equipment and some household goods. After the sale, she moved to Beresford where she resided until her death.
  • Peder died in 1930. Julia continued to live on the farm until 1945 when she moved to Beresford. In 1939, the Golden Jubilee year of South Dakota, Julia received a Golden Jubilee Certificate from the state signed by Olive Ringsrud, Secretary of State. Julia was the first lady in Brule Creek Lutheran Church congregation to receive a Lifetime Membership Certificate.7
  • Adolph homesteaded in Zweibach County. He raised horses and shipped them to auction sales in eastern South Dakota. He never married. He was a veteran of World War I - Private Adolph Abraham, Co 18, 4th Infantry, Amer. E. F., APO Q 740, Ser #22 14 302, WW I. A newspaper clipping reported UNION COUNTY BOY HAS CLOTHES PIERCED BY BULLETS FOUR TIMES. History records that during the Revolutionary war, the Indians tried repeatedly to shoot General Washington from his horse, and failing to do so, became of the opinion that he was a superior natural being, whom to kill would call down the wrath of the gods. Union County has a young man who recently reached home from service in France that can tell almost as remarkable a story, and while he has no rabbit's foot in his left-hand pocket, and was not aware of any connection with the super human being he surely was wonderfully fortunate, to say the least. The young man is ADOLPH ABRAHAMSON, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Abrahamson, who live three miles north of the Spink store, and the remarkable fact is that four bullets passed through his hat, and one through his coat, yet he received not a scratch. The fact that he escaped so nicely becomes a pleasant matter to recount, but when the possibilities of any one of the missiles of death going wrong is suggested, it is far from a pleasant topic of conversation. The young soldier is the grandson of Ole Christensen, who departs Tuesday morning for a visit with his daughters, Mrs. Sever Abrahamson and Mrs. Edward Nelson, in the Golden Valley, Montana.

  • Sarah and Roy farmed the Peder (Roy's father) Abrahamson farm. In 1965 (when Roy was 64 and Sarah 62 years old) they came back from town and found their home completely destroyed by fire. The only treasured family furniture peices saved were those that had been put in the garage for refinishing. Sarah especially missed the family pictures... everything was gone. All the Abrahams and Sommervolds searched through their photographs and gave Sarah and Roy copies. She was so proud of the family pictures as they were a treasure once lost - now recovered. Sarah and Roy built a new home further to the front of the farm where there was a slight rise which made a perfect building site. Their new house was a contemporary, modern home made beautiful by Sarah's artistic touches.

  • Adolph Abraham was a road maintenance with the SD highway department.
  • Adolph homesteaded in Zweibach County. He raised horses and shipped them to auction sales in eastern South Dakota. He never married. He was a veteran of World War I - Private Adolph Abraham, Co 18, 4th Infantry, Amer. E. F., APO Q 740, Ser #22 14 302, WW I. A newspaper clipping reported UNION COUNTY BOY HAS CLOTHES PIERCED BY BULLETS FOUR TIMES. History records that during the Revolutionary war, the Indians tried repeatedly to shoot General Washington from his horse, and failing to do so, became of the opinion that he was a superior natural being, whom to kill would call down the wrath of the gods. Union County has a young man who recently reached home from service in France that can tell almost as remarkable a story, and while he has no rabbit's foot in his left-hand pocket, and was not aware of any connection with the super human being he surely was wonderfully fortunate, to say the least. The young man is ADOLPH ABRAHAMSON, son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Abrahamson, who live three miles north of the Spink store, and the remarkable fact is that four bullets passed through his hat, and one through his coat, yet he received not a scratch. The fact that he escaped so nicely becomes a pleasant matter to recount, but when the possibilities of any one of the missiles of death going wrong is suggested, it is far from a pleasant topic of conversation. The young soldier is the grandson of Ole Christensen, who departs Tuesday morning for a visit with his daughters, Mrs. Sever Abrahamson and Mrs. Edward Nelson, in the Golden Valley, Montana.

James Thurtell

M, b. circa 19 January 1737/38, d. 19 January 1801
Father*John Thurtell b. c 1705, d. 1769
Mother*Elisabeth (?)
Life EventDateDescription
Birthcirca 19 January 1737/38James Thurtell was born circa 19 January 1737/38 at Norwich, Norfolk, England.
He was the son of John Thurtell and Elisabeth (?).
Marriage17 December 1758James Thurtell married Winifred Nunn, daughter of Thomas Nunn and Winifred Duckett, on 17 December 1758 at St. Etheldrea, Norwich, Norfolk, England.
Marriage2 May 1797James Thurtell married Elizabeth Atkinson on 2 May 1797 at Norwich, Norfolk, England.1
Death19 January 1801James Thurtell died on 19 January 1801 at Blundeston, Suffolk, England.
  • James Thurtell The family tree done by Harriet Thurtell about 1900 and the History ofthe Thurtell Family done by Susan Persia Thurtell about 1968, both in thepossession of Susan Persia Thurtell Miller, list James Thurtell as the earliest known ancestor of our family. See notes under James' son, John Thurtell. James is buried at Blundeston, and his tomb shows James Thurtell, died 19th January 1801,age 63 years. Information received from Peter Murray in 1997 shows that James Thurtell was the second son of John and Elizabeth Thurtell of Trowse Newton and Norwich, Norfolk, England. James Thurtell was a cooper in Norwich andfarmed in Lakenham, Norfolk, apparently on the Crowe family's estate nearNorwich. His farming apparently was on the property in Lakenham laterfarmed under Southwell, landlord, by his son Thomas Thurtell apparentlyby Harford Bridge (according to the research of Eunice Wilson). In 1770 he inherited his father's property in Hempnall, Norfolk. The children ofJames and Winifred Nunn Thurtell were christened in the Church of St.Julian, Norwich, Norfolk, until at least 1772. In about 1772, he acquired by lease a farm in Flixton, Suffolk, andproperty in the Redeham Marsh, Norfolk, and relocated his family from theparish of St. Julian, Norwich, to Flixton. From 1775 on his childrenwere christened at the Church of St. Mary, Blundeston, Suffolk, England. He was afterwards a prominent parishioner in Blundeston-cum-Flixton andlived at White House Farm (possibly leased from the Woods family). He also continued to have a presence in the parish of St. Julian in Norwich until at least 1781 since some of his children were buried in that parishuntil at least that year. His first wife, Winifred, was the daughter ofThomas Nunn, a Norwich worsted weaver. James and Winifred Thurtell hadnine children who survived childhood. James Thurtell, son of John Thurtell and Elizabeth, appears in the will of his father in 1767 and 1769 and that of his brother John in 1772,being during that time 'of the City of Norwich.' His baptismal record has not been found, probably because the Archdeacon's transcript forTrowse Newton in the years beginning with 1736 do not survive and theparish records are virtually unreadable due to flood damage. In hisfather's will, in 1767, James Thurtell was bequeathed an equal share(with his brother John and sister Sarah) of his father's property onBoarstreet in the City of Norwich, this subject to use of it by hismother during her lifetime. He was also to receive all of his father'sproperty in Hempnall, Norfolk, subject to compensation being paid to hisbrother John for his part. He also appears as an executor in the will ofhis brother John Thurtell, in 1772, in which he was charged with the saleof his brother's property in Trowse Milgate, with the proceeds to go toJohn's widow, Hannah. Where in Norwich this James Thurtell was living in1767 is not stated, nor what became of the property in Hempnall that wasbequeathed to him, or even whether and when the property in TrowseMilgate was in fact sold. However, the will of James Thurtell ofFlixton, Suffolk, dated 1799 and proved in 1801, shows him in possessionof a part freehold and part copyhold property in Hempnall, late in theoccupation of William King and 'now' in occupation of Samuel Gilbert.This is in addition to the property in his own occupation in Flixton,Suffolk, and Redeham Marshes, Norfolk, which he held by lease. It istherefore virtually certain that the James Thurtell who died in 1801 andmarried successively Winifred Nunn (c1740-1795) and the widow ElizabethAtkinson (1748-1828) is in fact the son of John and Elizabeth Thurtell ofTrowse Newton. Soon after 1772 he appears to have moved from Norwich andvicinity to Blundeston-cum-Flixton, Suffolk, where he first appears inour family tradition. Peter Murray's records also shows that the following information isrelevant: James Thurtell married Winifred Nunn on December 7, 1758, at St.Etheldreda, Norwich, Norfolk County, England. He was a single man ofSt. Julian parish and she a single woman of St. Etheldreda parish, bothin Norwich. The witnesses were Mary Chandler and Sarah Thurtell, buttheir relationships were not shown. James and Winifred Thurtell, beforemoving to Flixton, Suffolk, farmed property at Lakenham Norfolk, which isimmediately adjacent to Trowse Newton. A contemporary named James Thirtle married Mary Cook, 26 Dec 1762 atNorwich St. John de Sepulchre [i.e., in the same parish as the Norwichproperty of John Thurtell the peruch maker]. Other contemporaries of the name James are known, including JamesThurtell who married Esther Vout 30 May 1763 at Norwich St. Saviour, andJames Thirtle who married Susannah Berry 5 April 1752 at Norwich St.Stephen. James Thurtell of Flixton, Suffolk, in his will in 1799, proved in 1801,disposed of property in Hempnall, Norfolk, which appears to correspondwith the property held in 1770 by James, brother of the above JohnThurtell. These two James must therefore be one and the same, which means the other contemporaries also named James mentioned above mustbelong to different family groups. --------- WILL OF JAMES THURTELL OF FLIXTON SFK, FARMER, 1799/1801 Archdeaconry of Suffolk, England [Original File Copy] (Suffolk Record Office, Ipswich Branch, file IC/AA1/221/7) Note: This James Thurtell (m.1st Winifred Nunn; m.2nd Elizabeth Atkinson) is the earliest ancestor remembered in our family tradition. -------------------------- [Seal affixed to top of page] This is the Last Will and Testament of me James Thurtell of Flixton inthe County of Suffolk farmer -

Surrogate | to the Archdeacon of Suffolk. | --------------------------------------------------- END OF DOCUMENT FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS OF JAMES THURTELL OF FLIXTON, FARMER, 1801 James Thurtell of Flixton was a farmer with property also at the Marsh atRedeham Norfolk, and in Hempnall Norfolk. His will was dated 1799 andthe executors sworn 1801 when apparently he had died. Wife: Elizabeth, whose maintenance is provided for in the will but shewas not named as an executor. Terms of their marriage bond are referredto in the will. His children (mother not stated): John Thurtell Thomas Thurtell James Thurtell George Thurtell Sarah wife of Robert Browne Elizabeth wife of John Clarke Ann Thurtell Charlotte Thurtell, afterwards wife of Thomas Paine Sophia Thurtell Siblings or other relatives: none mentioned. All of the above were living in 1799 and 1801, and it is made clear thatthese were all his children then living. Provisions of the will (as interpreted by Peter Murray): His 5 children who were not underage, John, Thomas, James, Sarah, andElizabeth, were to repay to the estate sums of money which he hadpreviously advanced to them. Each of his 9 children were to be given 500 pounds of money, but onlyupon reaching age 21 if underage. His wife Elizabeth was to receive an annuity of 40 pounds, being earningsfrom a portion of the estate to be set aside and invested for thatpurpose. His 4 underage children, George, Ann, Charlotte, and Sophia were to havetheir maintenance and education provided from the revenues of hisproperties in Hempnall, Flixton and Redeham Marshes etc. His freehold and copyhold property in Hempnall Norfolk was to beentrusted to his son George for his use and to provide family revenueuntil he and all his siblings have reached the age of 21, upon which itwas to be sold by George and the proceeds divided equally among the 9children. His properties in Flixton Suffolk and the Marsh at Redeham Norfolk wereto be maintained and managed for the family benefit by his sons Thomasand James, who were to be given an annuity of 20 pounds for theirtrouble, for the remaining term of the lease or for as long as theyremained profitable, and if eventually sold, proceeds to be dividedequally among his nine children. His other personal estate etc when eventually converted into money to beequally divided among his 9 children. He appointed as executors his children Thomas, James, George, Ann, andCharlotte (power being reserved for the latter three, they beingunderage). Notes: This is the James Thurtell (1737-1801), our ancestor, who married first1758 to Winifred Woods (mother of all their children) and 2ndly 1797 toElizabeth Atkinson, a widow, who survived him. The seal of James Thurtell affixed to the will needs to be examined incase there is a crest or other insignia (not visible on the copy wehave). This can be compared with seals and insignia on other Thurtellwills and documents before and after this time as clues to otherrelationships and heraldic status. Since our James Thurtell is shown here to have possessed property inHempnall Norfolk, he appears to be identical to the James Thurtell whowas bequeathed property in Hempnall by the will of his father JohnThurtell of Trowse Newton in 1770.

Her sister, Susannah Browne married his brother, Thomas Thurtell, and her brother, Robert Browne, married his sister, Sarah Thurtell, on the same day, as confirmed by records of the Church of St. Mary, Blundeston, Suffolk, England.2
Death10 September 1846John Thurtell died on 10 September 1846 at Willow Lanes, St. Giles, Norwich, England, at age 84.
  • John Thurtell was a at Land surveyor.
  • He Much of the information about John and Anne Thurtell and their descendants is from the family tree done by Harriet Thurtell about 1900, the Thurtell Family History done about 1963, and the History of the Thurtell Family done by Susan Persia Thurtell about 1968, all in the possession of Susan Persia Thurtell Miller. John and Anne Thurtell lived at Hobland Hall at Hopton, Suffolk, England, and their twelve children were born there. Hobland Hall was painted by Harriet Thurtell, photographed several times, and has been visited by various descendants of John and Anne Thurtell over the years. A letter to Irene Thurtell Peters dated September 29, 1964 (copy in possession of Susan Persia Thurtell Miller) from James L. Buck, Birds Eye Food Ltd., Hobland Hall, Bradwell, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England,states that Hobland Hall is located in Suffolk, but the mailing address is Norfolk. The villages of Hobland, Lound, Flipton, Bradwell, Belton, Hopton, Ashley, Fritton, Belton, and Blundeston are all within 20 minutes horse ride of each other, and each have their own church (all Norman).The 12 children of John and their offspring have records and tombs in nearly all of these villages. John and Anne Thurtell are buried at Blundeston. Their tomb headings show: Anne Thurtell, died September 12,1834; age 72 years; John Thurtell, husband, died September 10, 1846, age 84 years; Elizabeth Thurtell, second wife of James, died 15th June 1823,age 75 years; James Thurtell, died 19th January 1801, age 63 years;Winifred, 1st wife of James, died November 28, 1795, age 55 years. There has been a church in Blundeston since the 7th century, and this is described by Charles Dickens in the opening pages of 'David Copperfield.' The lettering in the name Thurtell has changed from the early times as from Thurkeld, Thurked, Thurtle, and lots of offshoots of Thirtle. Inside the doorway of Hobland Hall is a brass plate that goes back at least to the 13th century. For over three centuries the estate was owned by Magdalen College, Oxford, and history records many famous tenants. On January 24, 1961, the Hall was almost destroyed by fire. Only the basement and exterior walls survived. Mr. R. G. Carter reinstated the Hall to first floor level, retaining the Georgian architecture as far as possible. The Hall was reoccupied as business premises of Birds Eye Foods in the autumn of 1961. James Buck from Birds Eye Foods corresponded with Irene Thurtell Peters in the 1960's. Additional information was received History Librarian, Norwich Public Libraries, from September 14, 1964, sent to James Buck, with a copy sent to Irene Thurtell Peters and a copy of her copy in the possession of Susan Persia Thurtell Miller. Hobland Hall (Hobbeland's or Hopland) is a manor held at the time of Henry III by Henry de Hopeland. In 1604 it was held by Sir John Fastalf, who gave it to Magdalen College, Oxford. Lessees included: 1724 Augustus Schultz,1949 Gerard Trotter, 1768 David Urquhart, 1793 Thomas Fowler, and in 1823 John Thurkell. Subsequently Tom Barber held it and later Mrs. Barber and Colonel Lucas. Ipswich Journal 11th and 26th July 1823 has adverts for sale of this manor at the Bear Inn, Yarmouth, 9th August 1823, by order of the assignees of the estate of John Thurtell, a bankrupt, of the Equity of Redemption of Estates situated at Bradwell, Hopton, Belton,etc. of the sites of the Manors of Hobland and Hopton, also a mansion house called Hobland Hall, several farms, etc., containing about 630 acres. In 1844 T. Barber occupied Hobland Hall. The IGI file at the LDS Family History Center shows that John Thurtell was christened August 29, 1762, at St. Julian, Norwich, Norfolk, C044421). It also shows he married Ann Brown at Blundeston,Suffolk, England, on September 25, 1787 (Batch 7913831). Information received from Peter Murray in 1997 shows John Thurtell was born August 12, 1762. He grew up in Flixton Parish in Suffolk, England,since his parents moved there by 1772. He was a land surveyor of Norwichand owned numerous properties in Lothingland Hundred, Suffolk, where helived. He settled in Hopton Parish in Suffolk prior to his marriage. Family tradition relates that John Thurtell and Anne Browne were married in a triple wedding ceremony. Her sister, Susannah Browne married his brother, Thomas Thurtell, and her brother, Robert Browne, married his sister, Sarah Thurtell, on the same day, as confirmed by records of the Church of St. Mary, Blundeston, Suffolk, England. Three sets of tea cups and saucers (cups without handles) were presented to the three brides on their wedding day by the Lowestoft China Works. The grandfather of the three Brownes married on that day was Robert Browne, one of the founding partners in 1757 of the Lowestoft China Works. According to information from Mrs. E. G. D. Murray, who grew up in Blundeston, near Lowestoft,Sparrow's Nest is a big and beautiful park at the very north end of Lowestoft, where the main street of Lowestoft turns left. The park goes right down the escarpment. There was no house there in the early 1900's,but there was said to have formerly been a big beautiful house somewherein the park. After their marriage, John and Anne Thurtell lived at Hobland Hall,Bradwell Parish, Suffolk County, England, for many years. In 1823 they moved to Hopton Hall, Hopton Parish, Suffolk, England, only three miles away according to Thurtell family records. In that year Hobland Hall andother extensive properties belonging to John Thurkell (Thurtell), a bankrupt, were sold by auction in Yarmouth as announced in the local newspaper. Either John Thurtell avoided total ruin, or possibly Hopton Hall where he afterwards lived was by then the property of his eldest son. This was the time of an unprecedented number of bankruptcies in England. Indeed, these must have been grim times for our family, for 1823-4 was also the time of the Thurtell murder scandal, in which another John Thurtell, a nephew of John and Anne Browne Thurtell, whose mother was Anne's sister and whose father was John's brother, was convicted and executed for the murder of William Weare, a notorious swindler and sometime solicitor. The Thurtell name was blackened, notwithstanding some public sympathy for the murderer, and as a result our John Thurtell and several other members of his family appear to have used the name Turner instead of Thurtell for a time. Two sons of John and Anne Thurtell, including Peter Murray's ancestor Alfred, instead adopted the name Murray which has been retained by that branch of the family ever since. Later John Thurtell lived in or near Norwich where he died. In early 1842 a letter from Elizabeth Anne Thurtell to cousin Edward Brookes Thurtell relating news learned from England stated, 'Grandfather still is declining and will not so he thinks be long spared, walks into the City twice a day, and is in his 80th year.' His death certificate shows that he died at Willow Lanes, St. Giles, Norwich, on death was registered two days later. John and Anne Thurtell Suffolk,England, in the floor to the left of the old font. In 1993 they were moved during renovations and have been imbedded in the wall children who survived childhood. All twelve were believed to have been born at Hobland Hall,Bradwell Parish, and christened at the Old Font in the Church of St. Marythe Virgin, Blundeston. contemporary records of baptisms in theparish of Hopton have now been found for all of the children, and in some instances the birthplace too is given as Hopton. The youngest son was born in Bradwell in 1805, so perhaps by then they were living at HoblandHall. Information received from Jane Ward in 1998 confirms that John Thurtell died September 10, 1846, and that his death certificate is number DX307791.

Birth1765Thomas Thurtell was born in 1765 at Norwich, Norfolk, England.1
He was the son of James Thurtell and Winifred Nunn.
Marriage25 September 1787Thomas Thurtell married Susanna Brown, daughter of John Browne and Mary Skoulding, on 25 September 1787 at St. Mary's, Blundeston, Suffolk, England, Family tradition relates that John Thurtell and Anne Browne were married in a triple wedding ceremony. Her sister, Susannah Browne married his brother, Thomas Thurtell, and her brother, Robert Browne, married his sister, Sarah Thurtell, on the same day, as confirmed by records of the Church of St. Mary, Blundeston, Suffolk, England.2
DeathApril 1846Thomas Thurtell died in April 1846 at Probably Lakenham, Norfolk, England.
  • Thomas was Mayor of Norwich and was a "Highly respected and opulent merchant" in Norwich.
  • Thomas Thurtell According to the Thurtell Family History done by Susan Persia Thurtell about 1968 and information received from the Norwich Public Library onthe records of the Thurtell family, Thomas Thurtell was born in 1765 anddied in April 1846. He was a member of the Norwich Common Council in 1812, alderman of Conisford Ward in 1814, sheriff in 1815, and mayor in 1828. He married Susanna Brown, who died in 1848. They had nine children. Thomas lived at Harford Hall Farm, Ibswich Road, Lakenham,England. He was obviously a person of an extremely tempestuous, violent,and unforgiving character. His treatment of his family was often tyrannical, and one feels that much of their criminal behavior was his responsibility. He refused to pay the lawyer's expenses in connection with John's trial; he deprived Charles of his promised marriage settlement and legacy (owing in part to William's influence); and his mayoralty was extremely stormy. The Thurtell family tree done by Harriet Thurtell about 1900 lists the children of Thomas and Susanna Brown Thurtell as: Thomas (m. Sarah Brooks), John, Horace, James, and two Daughters who died unmarried. This is obviously the same family since the dates of death of Thomas and Susanna Brown Thurtell are in the family tree. The information from the Norwich Public Libraries received by James L. Buck of Hobland Hall inSeptember 1964, and copied and sent to Irene Thurtell Foresman Petersand copied and sent to Susan Persia Thurtell about 1967 is probably much more accurate. Information received from Peter Murray in 1997 shows that Thomas Thurtell, baptised July 21, 1765, at St. Julian, Norwich, Norfolk, England, died April 8, 1846, aged 81, and was a 'highly respected and opulent merchant of Norwich' and three times mayor of Norwich. A prominent member of the Whig party in Norwich, he became a member of the Common Council in 1812, alderman in 1815, sheriff in 1815, and mayor in 1828 (elected by the Court of Aldermen after two inconclusive popular votes). He was mayor in 1829 when the Old Fye Bridge was built, as indicated on a brass tablet uncovered in 1932 when the bridge was widened. It is most noteworthy that he was chosen as mayor even after the trial and execution of his son John, and in fact had disowned him. He had done his best to set his sons Thomas and John up in business in 1814, and they purchased and manufactured silks and bombasin underhanded that he (the father)knew nothing about. Nevertheless, he appears to have survived this scandal, and others which followed in connection with his sons, withundiminished reputation. His mayoralty appears to have been extremely tempestuous and his critics vocal; and the dreadful legal troubles of hissons must have that he was universally esteemed as an honest and upright man. He married, in Blundeston, Suffolk, on September 25, 1787, Susannah Browne, who was born in 1764 and died in 1848. Susannah's sister, Anne Browne, married Thomas' brother, John Thurtell; and her brother, Robert Browne, married Thomas' sister, Sarah Thurtell, in a triple wedding ceremony at the Church of St. Mary in Blundeston. Thomas Thurtell was still living in Flixton Parish at the time of his marriage, presumably with his father. He, his wife, and a daughter are buried in the new church at Lakenham; and two of their children are buried in the churchyard of Lakenham Old Church. His residence was Harford Hall farm, by Harford Bridge, on the Ipswich Road, in Lakenham Parish. We are told that he farmed this property under Southwell, landlord, and died there. However, property records for the farm apparently show that Thomas, described as esquire, only occupied it as lessee between 1811 and 1819, so perhaps the rest of the time there was some other arrangement. Lakenham was at that time very close by Norwich to the south, and is now well within the city. In the index of Norwichcity officers, Thomas appears in 1815 as alderman, South Conisford, and in the same year as sheriff. Thomas and Susannah (Browne) Thurtell had the last three listed and other details are the result of subsequent research. In some contemporary records some ofthese children have been associated with Hobland Hall and the name oftheir father Thomas confused with John, presumably as a result of staying for a time with their uncle John Thurtell of Hobland Hall.
