Notes for Sydney Coke 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 Sydney Thurtell married Lucy Pownall and had no issue.

The IGI file at the LDS Family History Center Batch C075291 shows Sydney Coke Thurtell, son of Walter Thurtell and Honor Clark, was christened September 28, 1825, at Wells Next the Sea, Independent, Norfolk, England.

Information received in 1997 from Peter Murray shows that Sydney Coke Thurtell, baptised September 28, 1825 at the Wells next the Sea Independent Church, Norfolk, and living in the 1880's, changed his name to Turner presumably because of the still lingering notoriety of the name Thurtell many years after the famous murder. He was visited in England by G.A.E.Murray as mentioned in letters (where is not clear from the letters, possibly near the Evans family in Stroud, Glos.?). He married, Lucy Pownell, but had no children.
