Henry Tuttleby

From on Thu, 18 Jan 2007
I have just found a posting from you regarding the Tuttlebys of Essex. My 3 x great grandmother was Susannah Barnes m. James Mills, a sister to Philadelphia Barnes/Tuttleby/Brown.
In her will Susannah wrote "I give and bequeath unto my sister Philadelphia Brown of Stamford described(?) on the Mill in the County of Essex the legacy or sum of twenty pounds and also all my wearing apparel." (12 July 1850)
I have had a letter today from the keeper of the Essex marriage index who verified that Philadelphia Burns(sic) married William Tuttleby on 20 Oct 1811 in Fobbing and then married James Brown on 15 March 1840 also in Fobbing. For her second marriage, Philadelphia Tuttleby is a widow, father John Barnes.
I look forward to hearing from you

Hi Elizabeth.
I was reading your website that mentions the Tuttlebys of Melbourne, Australia. I am descended from Henry and Mary Tuttleby who emigrated on the ship Sacramento in 1853. I thought I'd let you know that according to the medical notes on the passenger list, their daughter Alice died on the voyage, and that's why she's not mentioned in any documents in Australia.
Let me know if you want any more information.
