Thurtell and Related Families

Notes for John THURTELL

Information obtained from the family tree done by Harriet Thurtell about
1900, the 1963 family history, and the History of the Thurtell Family
done by Susan Persia Thurtell about 1968 show John died December 7, 1837,
at age 49.

Records from the Mormon Library researched by Charlotte Mackie show that
the Record of Baptisms for Hopton, Suffolk, England, shows that John, son
of John Thurtell and Ann his wife, late Ann Brown Spinster, was born
September 9, 1788, was baptised privately on September 14, 1788, and was
received into the church June 10, 1792. The Register of Burials in the
Parish of Hopton, Suffolk County, England, page 15, shows John Thurtell,
from Great Yarmouth, was buried on December 11, 1837, at Hopton.

According to information received in 1997 from Peter Murray, he is the
John Thurtell Jr. of Pakefield who obtained Suffolk gamekeepers licences
in 1810, 1811, and 1812. He is later stated to have lived in Yarmouth
for many years "much respected" and died there after a short illness. An
extract of a book, unfortunately unidentified, suggests in a footnote
that this same John Thurtell was a merchant of Bradwell Suffolk who
failed (was bankrupted) in Sept 1822 ("Times", Sept 18) while his father,
formerly of Bradwell, was then of Norwich, but the information is
unreliable and needs to be checked. It has been suggested that he
received Hobland Hall from his father around this time, but if so
couldn't have held it long.
