Notes for Walter THURTELL

The family tree done by Harriet Thurtell about 1900 and the History of the Thurtell Family done by Susan Persia Thurtell about 1968, both in the possession of Susan Persia Thurtell Miller, show Walter Thurtell married (1) Ellen, (2) Matilda, and (3) Emma Harden and had no issue.

The IGI file of the LDS Family History Center (Batch C075291) shows Walter Thurtell, son of Walter Thurtell and Honor, was christened December 19, 1821, at Wells Next the Sea, Independent, Norfolk, England.

The 1998 LDS British Isles Vital Record Index CD shows Walter Thurtell, the son of Walter Thurtell and Honor, was born November 6, 1821, at Wighton, Norfolk, England, and his birth was recorded in Dr. Williams Library for England and Wales. This record shows his mother's father was John Clark. The source is FHL Number 816012, note: 2917.

Information received from Peter Murray in 1997 shows that Walter Thurtell lived in Ormsby House, Grange Road, Sutton, Surrey. He married first Ellen, married second Matilda, and married third Emma Harden, but had no issue from any marriage. Emma was living in 1899 at Ormsby House and was known to the Roodebloem Murrays as "Grannie Thurtell."

He is almost certainly the Walter (Jun) Thurtell listed in the 1851 British Census as age 29, married, a merchant and farmer with 124 acres and 4 labourers, born in Wighton, Norfolk, and living at Wighton Walsingham, Norfolk. Living with him is his wife, Matilda Thurtell, age 33, born in Haddiscoe, Norfolk. Also living with them are Ann Jackson, unmarried, age 18, born in Warham, Norfolk, and Reba Claxton, age 25, unmarried, born in Wighton, Norfolk, their house servants. (PRO Reference HO/107/1826, Folio 373, Page 7, FHL Film 0207480).

Walter Thurtell is listed in the 1881 British Census CD as an agricultural merchant age 59, born in Wighton, Norfolk, England, with a dwelling on Grange Road and the census place at Sutton, Surrey, England. Living with him and shown as his third wife is Emma J. Thurtell, age 51, born in Norwood, Surrey, England. Also with them are their housemaid Agnes Martice, age 18, born in Stretham, Surrey, England, and their domestic cook Sarah Hale, age 33, born in Bramford, Essex, England. The source is FHL Film 1341178, PRO Ref RG11, Piece 0758, Folio 45, Page 38.
