Census details

Estates Planned & Unplanned

John Culling left a will on 13 July 1813 in Norwich, Norfolk, England, in which Joshua Chittock was a beneficiary; excerpt of the will -- P119; "... bequeath the same unto ten of my children (that is to say) Mary the wife of William Ebden, James Culling, Elizabeth the wife of the said James Shreeve, Sarah the wife of the said Joshua Chittock, Hannah the wife of William Reeder, the said Ann and Lydia, Honor the wife of Sheering FLATMAN and Daniel CULLING equally to be divided between them share and share alike. You will note that even though he says 10 children he only names 9. John and Isaac (missing from this list) are both named in earlier clauses. 2 Grandsons, sons of James also get a mention. One is named as James, and I do not yet have him as part of his family, so this will need researching further. In the mean time I have added him without any confirming parish records.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: There are no wills for Joshua listed in Norfolk Sources.
  • Research note 02: parents not named in the parish record of their marriage, however I have transcribed a will that confirms the relationships.
  • Research note 03: may have witnessed a marriage between William BIRD and Eliza SOUTH 18/12/1830 in Heigham. refer to source for details.11
  • Research note 04: A Daniel CULLING son of John and Lydia, made Joshua and his brother Clement CHITTOCK executors when he died. I believe this confirms the relationship. Daniel is the brother of Joshua's wife Sarah. I have transcribed the will. Joshua was also an executor for his father-in-law John CULLING. There are still more wills to transcribe for this family.
