Nutter Gray
« on: Thursday 21 February 19 19:39 GMT (UK) »
What does the panel think?

Born 10th November, 1700. Billericay Essex. Out of Jo and Mary.

1851 has him living in Pembury Grove, Hackney. Coal Merchant and Undertaker ( :o The mind boggles, any way ye look at it!)

One of ours, settled down and made good? Or, did the posh Gray's go round calling their kids " Nutter "  ???

I took a fleeting glimpse at some tree. It was as expected. But, a glaring Cooper caught my eye on this copy paste looking pedigree.

Opinions, please  :)

Arrrghh!!! Sorry! I completely misread the entry! Those strange characters that look like a bomb with a droopy fuse?  :-\ Thought they were " 0 "s. Didn't look much further, as I'm just going on information received.

Either way, he's still a Nutter, and looks to be doing alright.

Oh, yes; Phyllis is gone, 1851. Just a daughter, Emily, if I'm reading it right? Looks to have a serving girl too!

 ??? Hold on! Have I lost the plot, completely? (One really shouldn't be doing this stuff whilst in the least bit distracted!)

Information I was given was:

Nutter Gray. 1841. Billericay, Essex.

 b 1788 d 1853 Hackney Middlesex. m Lydia Searle 1813.

Any utter pigs ears since putting in an appearance since? I have to shoulder the full responsibility and public shame!  :'(

Lydia Searle could be the transcribed Phillis in 1841 Hackney as they have a son Searle Gray b c 1830, I followed the daughter Emily back from the 1851 census.

 :) Thanks, Keyboard. I feel really bad now, piling in here, spouting unconfirmed sound bites ~ as I now recognise I have done.

I think I may be experiencing a touch of burn out, in honesty. Been pushing the boundaries a bit, just lately. No longer used to it.

Throttling back a bit then; The basic question is: Did 100% Gaujo lines of Gray call their sons Nutters?

That might be a more clinical way of coming at it?

 :) Thanks, Mabel.

Not looking good, is it? Linen Drapers, Farmers and Coal Merchants ....?

Fascinated by the use of that given name though. Weird!
