Birthcirca 1731John Thurtell was born circa 1731 at Trowse, Newton, Norfolk, England.
He was the son of John Thurtell and Elisabeth (?).
Marriage29 February 1756John Thurtell married Hannah Chambers on 29 February 1756 at St George Tombland, Norwich, Norfolk, England.
Deathcirca April 1772John Thurtell died circa April 1772.
  • John Thurtell According to information received from Peter Murray in 1997, this JohnThurtell lived at 80 Crow Street, Norwich, and Trowse Newton and TrowseMilgate, all in Norfolk, England. He was a peruch maker (wig maker).He made his will March 11, 1772, signed by his own hand, and presumablydied before April 23 the same year when the will was examined and theexecutors sworn. His baptism is recorded in Trowse Newton September 19,1731 (Archdeacon's Transcript), son of John and Elizabeth Thurtell. Inhis will he disposed of property in Norwich St. John de Sepulchre, TrowseNewton, and Trowse Milgate, all in Norfolk. He is also mentioned in hisfather's will, 1767 and 1769 by which he was left a share of his father'sBoarstreet property in Norwich, and was to be compensated for property inHempnall Norfolk willed to his brother James. He may then have alreadybeen in possession of the property in Trowse Newton since disposal of itis not mentioned in his father's will. John Thurtell married Hannah Chambers on February 29, 1756, St. GeorgeTombland, Norwich, Norfolk, England (IGI Batch M011601, Serial 1658).She was in 1772 executrix of his will, with his brother James theexecutor, and was the sole heir mentioned in her husband's will. She wasto receive the property in St. John de Sepulchre in Norwich, the propertyin Trowse Newton, and the money from the sale of property in TrowseMilgate. The Court Roll of the Manor of Trowse Newton, November 25, 1772, alsomentions this John Thurtell. There it is recited that at the Court ofNovember 1765, when he was admitted at the surrender of AnthonyFreestone, John Thurtell, further described as the younger of Norwich,barber, surrendered to the use of his will his copyhold messuages, lands,tenements and hereditaments. Now (November 25, 1772) his widow Hannahcomes to Court with his will dated the previous 11th March, in which heleft her his messuage or tenement with appurtenances in Trowse Newton, towhich she is accordingly admitted and surrenders to the use of her will.And in the margin of this record it is noted that on November 1, 1785,Hannah as Hannah Dobson surrenders the property to Richard Youngs. Couldthis have had something to do with the reexamination of the will of herlate husband's father in 1784? John and Hannah Thurtell had one daughter who is not mentioned in thewill, Hannah Thurtell. ------------- WILL OF JOHN THURTELL OF NORWICH, PERUKE MAKER, 80 CROW STREET 1772 Norwich Consistory Court, Norfolk [Will Register Copy].

  • John Thurtell The following information was received from Peter Murray in 1997. John Thurtell was a blacksmith residing in the parish of St. Julian inthe City of Norwich, Norfolk, England. He made his will on November 13,1729, identifying his wife and various children as beneficiaries, beingalready apparently gravely ill and he must have died very soonafterwards, being buried December 2, 1729, at Norwich St. Etheldreda(register). His will was examined December 8, 1729; and the statement ofthe witnesses to the will was taken at that time. He must be the JohnThurtle who married Alice Balls June 24, 1700, in Swannington, Norfolk(IGI entry). Alice, his widow in the parish of Norwich St. Julian, madeher will in 1734 and signed by the executrix and witnesses on September20, 1735. This was apparently just after she died since the burial ofAlice Thurtel was recorded September 17, 1735, at Norwich St. Etheldreda(register). Her will was for some reason examined again January 21, 1768. Conjectures as to possible parents of this John Thurtell are veryuncertain: there is record (from IGI entries) of a John Thirkettelbaptised March 22, 1680, at Norwich St. Peter Southgate (son of JohnThirkettel, probably by wife Mary); and a John Thirtle baptised May 6,1677, at Caister St. Edmund Norfolk (son of Robert Thirtle and Sarah).Caister St. Edmund is only a short distance south of Trowse Newton andLakenham, all of which are just south of Norwich. John and Alice Thurtell had eight children. ------- WILL OF JOHN THURTELL OF NORWICH ST JULIAN, BLACKSMITH 1729 Norwich Consistory Court, Norfolk. Note: This John Thurtell (m. Alice) had a son John born at about theright time to be the father (possibly John Thurtell, peruke maker m.Elizabeth) of our James Thurtell (m. Winifred Nunn) and othercircumstances tend to confirm this relationship. ----------------------- In the Name of God Amen I John Thurtell of ye parish of St Julian in yeCity of Norwich Blacksmith being in perfect mind and memory doe make andordain this my last Will & Testament as follows, (that is to Say) first Ibequeath my Soul to Almighty God hoping for Salvation thro' ye merits &mediaton of Jesus Christ my blessed Saviour and Redeemer and my Body Ibequeath to ye Earth from whence it was taken to be buried in a Christianlike manner at ye discretion of my Extrix herein after to be named and asto my Worldly Estate which it hath pleased God to bestow upon me in thisLife I give & Dispose thereof in manner & form following viz Impris[?].I give & bequeath to Robert Thurtell my eldest Son my best great Coat adouble breasted Coat a fustian[?] Waist Coat and a pair of BuckskinBreeches.

Wife: Alice, named the executrix, to whom he left all of his estate withthe exception of that designated to his children. His children (not stated if Alice was mother): Robert Thurtell, eldest son, to whom he left his best greatcoat, adouble-breasted coat, a fustian(?) waistcoat, and a pair of buckskinbreeches. John Thurtell, second son, to whom he left a blue cloth wrappingcoat. Henry Thurtell, to whom he left his best suit of wearing clothes andhis best buckskin breeches. James Thurtell, to whom he left one guinea of gold. Jeremiah Thurtell, youngest son, apparently underage in 1729, towhom he left one guinea of gold. Sarah (no indication she was married), to whom he left one guinea ofgold. Alice Thurtell (evidently unmarried), to whom he left one featherbed on which she usually slept and all the furnishings belonging to it,and the sum of five shillings. All of the above were living in 1729. Notes: - The following IGI entries may relate to this family: - John Thurtle married Alice Balls, 24 June 1700 at SwanningtonNorfolk. - Children of John Thurtle and Alice, christening dates: Robert Thirtle, 20 Feb 1701, at Norwich St Peter Southgate. Sara Theartill, 12 Feb 1703, at Norwich St Julian. James Thurtle, 10 March 1711, at Norwich St Julian. Susanna Thurtle, 15 Aug 1714, at Norwich St Julian. - John Thurtle, chr.20 Feb 1705, son of John Thurtle and Jane.[could 'Jane' here be an error for 'Alice'?] - Henry Thirtle married Anne Wright, 17 June 1734 at SmallburghNorfolk. - Henry Thurtle and Anne had at least 4 children christened atNorwich St Julian. [The will of Henry Thurtell of Norwich is dated1740-41.] - Alice Thurtle married Robt.Backamore, 16 Jul 1730 at Norwich StJulian. - The will of Alice Thurtle of Norwich is dated 1735. - The admon of Henry Thurtle, blacksmith of Norwich St Julian,included not only his wife Ann but also a John Thurtill of Trowse,barber, must almost certainly be the brother of this Henry. ----- It is quite possible that this John Thurtell is the son John born in 1677of Robert and Sarah Thirtle (so spelled) of Caistor St. Edmund withMarkshall, a few miles south of Norwich. His wife Alice was perhaps froma Swannington Norfolk family. The fact that he named his eldest sonRobert and his eldest daughter Sarah make this parentage very likely.

  • Robert Thurtell Information received from Peter Murray in 1997 shows that Robert Thurtell, baptised February 20, 1701, at St. Peter Southgate, Norwich, Norfolk, England, eldest son of John Thirtle and Alice (IGI entry), was a blacksmith like his father. Robert Thurtell was apprenticed in 1717 by the gift of Sir Joseph Payne, deceased, to John Thurtle of Norwich, blacksmith (evidently his father), until he was 23 years of age (from published index of Norwich apprentices in Norfolk Records Soc. vol 29). The reference to Payne's gift (this was probably an apprenticing charity) appears where the father's name could otherwise be expected (info from Norfolk Record Office). Robert Thurtle, blacksmith, son of John Thurtle was admitted a freeman of Norwich August 2, 1727 (info from Norfolk Record Office). Robert Thurtell is mentioned in his father's will, in 1729, in which he was left his best greatcoat, a double breasted coat, afustian(?) waistcoat, and a pair of buckskin breeches. However he is not mentioned in his mother's will, 1735, being probably not then still alive. He must be the Robert Thurtle who was buried at St. Etheldreda, Norwich, Norfolk, England, on July 26, 1732 (parish register). Rob Thirtle married Mgt Read on September 14, 1720, at St. Helen, Norwich (IGI entry). She may be the Margaret Thurtle who was buried at St.Etheldreda, Norwich, on June 4, 1732, and since her husband apparently died the same year, one wonders who then raised their young children? They appear to have had three children who appear in the records.

HenryThurtell, son of John and Alice Thurtell, was mentioned in his father'swill in 1729, by which he was left his father's best suit of wearingclothes, and and his best buckskin breeches, but no baptismal record forhim has yet been found. This must certainly be the Henry Thurtle,blacksmith, who was admitted a Freeman of Norwich on March 1, 1734 (infofrom Norfolk Record Office). In 1735 in his mother's will he was leftthe sum of one shilling. Henry Thurtle, presumably the same one, married Anne Wright on June 17,1734, at Smallburgh Norfolk (IGI entry). Henry Thurtle, who was of theparish of Norwich St. Julian, died intestate, and the Admon dated October8, 1741, mentions Ann Thirtill, his widow, and John Thurtill of Trowse, abarber, who we can assume was his brother (copy obt from Norfolk RecordOfc).
