Hannah & Will CUTHBERT




British immigrants
  • William CUTHBERT (1836-1899) and
  • Jane Mazella CUTHBERT née HOARE (1836-1923)


First I will provide the CUTHBERT-HOARE line and the link to the Carruthers. The name CUTHBERT derives from Cudbert [O.E. cûð = renown and O.E. beorht = shiny] could be linked to Saint Cuthbert, who was a hermit born in Northumberland ~634 who became the Abbot of the The monastery of Lindisfarne, an island off the coast of England and Bishop of Durham. He is now the Patron Saint of Northumbria.

1   William Thomas CUTHBERT b.3Mar1836, Ipswich, England.
   Possibly the son of Mary and younger son of James living
   in the Cosaford Union Workhouse as a child in 1841.
   Occ. bricklayer (foreman of the London Bridge construction)

   William was a Choirister & Sunday School teacher (served on 
   vestry of Church of England, St Peters in the Forest, 
   Bombay where he is interred).  He also served on the local 
   school committee and the Road Board. [136] [141]

 +  Jane (Jean) Mazella HOARE
   b.02Oct1835 Horton Kirby, Dartford, Kent; 
   bpt.25Oct1835 [139] (Dartford, Kent)
   Her age was 23 on her marriage certificate (ie born 1836)
   presumably as William was only 23! 
   On boarding the Bombay she was 27 (ie b.1837) [1005] and
   in a 1912 photo she was 74 (ie born 1838), 
   so she got younger as she aged!
   d/o Francis HOARE and Mary Ann SEFFENS. See Hoare.html

   brother Robert Hoare and sister Elizabeth Whittle. [136] [139]
