Nuttall pedigree reproduced by Ann Andrews

Derby LSL Reference: 8022 p 163

In 1830 George NUTTALL supplied Thomas Ince with the majority of the information in the above pedigree. However, after George NUTTALL had died either Thomas Ince or his clerk added both George NUTTALL's death and that of his relative John NUTTALL to the pedigree. Having spent some considerable time researching this family[1] I would make the following observations about the names on the chart.

  • The children and descendants of John NUTTALL (son of Thomas NUTTALL alias Dale) and Elizabeth ROUSE are correct, though the children are not in order of birth.

  • James NUTTALL (son of Thomas NUTTALL alias Dale) had the following children:
    • Samuel (died as child)
    • Rebecca
    • James
    • Samuel
    • Hannah (died as child)
    • Thomas
    • John
      • Note: John, son of James, did not die in France in 1856 (see below).

  • Thomas NUTTALL (son of Thomas NUTTALL alias Dale) had the following children by his first marriage:
    • William
    • John, Elizabeth, Elizabeth (all three died as infants)
    • Hannah
    • Thomas
      • Note: The sons of Thomas shown on the chart are slightly misleading. Thomas seems to have married twice and George, William and Samuel shown on the pedigree are sons from his second marriage.
        The John who died in France in April 1856 was the son of Thomas's son, William NUTTALL of Birchover; John's name does not appear on the pedigree drawn up by Mr. Ince.
