My likely Sussex PUTTICK ancestry

  1. Henry PUTTOCK who poss m. 12 May 1702 Kirdford SSX Emmeline RANDOLL
  2. William PUTTOCK c. 8 Sep 1711 Kirdford SSX son of above
  3. Thomas PUTTOCK c. 19 Mar 1747/8 Kirdford SSX bu. 16 Dec 1832 Kirdford SSX (son of above) m. 12 Jun 1770 Kirdford SSX Elizabeth DENYER
  4. Thomas PUTTICK c.15 Mar 1771 Pulborough SSX d. Strood Green SSX [?] (son of above) m. 20 Nov 1795 Kirdford SSX Jane WHITTINGTON
  5. John PUTTICK b. 12 Oct 1808 Kirdford SSX d. 24 Aug 1876 Saint Helier JSY (son of above) m. 14 Dec 1829 Petworth SSX Mary COX
  6. Mary Jane PUTTICK b. 21 Mar 1833 West Cowes IOW d. 24 Jul 1911 St Leonards SA dau of above.

I think John (#5) was born in Kirdford to Thomas and Jane in 1808 but unfortunately in the 1871 Census - 1871 Palmyra Road St Helier Jersey (RG.10/5758) - he is recorded as being born in Tillington SSX!

Did John get it wrong? The problem is that I can find a Tillington birth for a John at the right time too!

This William Puttick operated the Queen's Head sometimes called the Puttick Inn at Upperton SSX just up the lane from Tillington.

Linking Thomas into the Kirdford Putticks is a little tenuous at this time. I can find a Thomas Puttick marrying a Jane Whittington at Kirdford in 1795 but the origins of Thomas are not all that clear. I can find such a man baptised in nearby Pulborough in 1795 but cannot link him back to the Kirdford Putticks with any certainty. Such work is difficult and expensive from afar!
