Recently on facebook I read a message about the Tutty family of Howden. I was interested as there seemed to be several family connections with local villages - Tutty Row in Howdendyke, Spaldington and Eastrington.
Howdendyke - Tutty Row is on the left of the picture.
So I have had a look at them and found a vast family who worked on the land in this area for over 200 years - and the name Joseph passed down through the generations.
The first Joseph  I have found was born in 1768 although I cannot find where. The name is often mis -spelled in the records. He married Elizabeth Sargeson at Holme on Spalding Moor in 1794. Their son John was baptised in 1795 and they were then living at Skelton where Joseph was working as a labourer.
There was another son Joseph born around 1795-8 who declares on census entries that he was born at Eastrington but I cannot find a record.
Sadly Elizabeth died of consumption in 1799.
In February 1801 Joseph married Frances Nutbrown. Their son George was baptised at Eastrington in December. Son Henry was baptised at Eastrington in 1803. Mary, Jane, Robert and William followed, all baptised at Howden. Joseph and Frances were living in Flatgate in 1841 and Joseph was a labourer.
Joseph was buried at Howden in 1844, aged 76.
Joseph  [ described as 'of Howden'] married Hannah Cowlam/ Cowlin/ Cowling at Bubwith in 1818. Their daughter Jane was born the same year but sadly died aged one. The family were then living at Hive near Eastrington.
George was born in 1822, Joseph in 1828, John in 1830, Elizabeth in 1832 and Charles in 1835. Although they were baptised at Howden the family lived in the area known as Spaldington Outsides.
This is the area between the Royal Oak and Welham Bridge - where Snowden Dunhill once lived.
George remained as a farm labourer at Spaldington Outsides. His father Joseph lived with them until his death in 1883. His age at death was 88 giving a birth date on 1795. He and his wife Mary had at least 6 children including Joseph  born 1858.
Joseph  married Mary Nothard in 1848 at Bubwith. He moved around from Hull, where his son Joseph was born in 1855 to Laxton and settled like his brother at Kilpin Pike where he too worked in the chemical works. He and Mary had at least 9 children. One son, Charles, became a shipwright. He married Mary Hunt and in 1911 she is shown as a grocery shop keeper. Charles is elsewhere. The Tutty family owned Tutty Row.
John also moved to Kilpin Pike where he was a labourer in the fertiliser works. He and his wife Hannah had three daughters and lived in a row named in the 1881 census as Prospect Villas. His wife died in 1910 and he in 1913.
Charles briefly moved to Hull but returned to Spaldington farming 65 acres between Sykes and Ivy house farms. He died in 1908.
His death was reported as follows
DEATH OF A SPALDINGTON FARMER.) Quite a gloom was cast over the village and district on Sunday afternoon when it became known that Charles Tutty, farmer, had died in his chair. Mr Tutty was his usual good health on the Saturday, when he attended Howden Market but on his return home complained of pain in the chest. On Sunday the was seized with violent pain and his daughter, Miss Kate Tutty, tried to administer brandy, but he expired in his chair.
Henry Green, Coroner for Howdenshire, held an inquest. Mr William Tutty, son. deposed that his father had enjoyed good health, and, to his knowledge, had never had a doctor. After hearing evidence from the son and daughter, he returned the verdict of "Syncope."
He was laid to rest on Wednesday in the presence of large and sympathetic gathering of relatives, farmers, and others from a wide district, where he was well-known and highly respected. Family mourners wore Mr William Tutty (son), Sarah Tutty (daughter), Miss Kate Tutty daughter. Mr and Mrs J. Harrison (Willitoft, son in law and daughter). Mr and Mrs W. Atkinson Jarret Hill. Cave, son-in-law and daughter), Mr Joseph Tutty (brother, Howdendyke), Mr Joseph and Mrs Tutty (nephew and niece Spaldington- Mr, G Coggrave (niece, Howden), Miss ?Walsh (niece, Howdendvke), Miss Morritt Howden), and Mr Archie Tutty Spaldington.
He leaves two sons (one in America), and four daughters
William Tutty of Spaldington died in 1943
Joseph 4, George's son, born in 1858 married Hannah Ferguson in 1881 at Bubwith. In 1901 they were living next to The Plough Inn in Spaldington. Their son Archie married Effie Wiles and their daughter Vida [later Walker] was born in 1927. It was said that Joseph and Archie were known throughout the area as very good sheep shearers.
I found the Tutty family interesting to research even if there were a great number called Joseph!. There are several family gravestones in local churchyards of Howden and Eastrington. If anyone has anything further about the family to add I can include it.
