Henry Thurtell, son of John and Alice Thurtell, was mentioned in his father’s will in 1729, by which he was left his father’s best suit of wearing clothes, and and his best buckskin breeches, but no baptismal record for him has yet been found. This must certainly be the Henry Thurtle, blacksmith, who was admitted a Freeman of Norwich on 1 March 1734. In 1735 in his mother’s will he was left the sum of one shilling. Henry Thurtle, presumably the same one, married Anne Wright on 17 June 1734, at Smallburgh Norfolk. Henry Thurtle, who was of the parish of Norwich St. Julian, died intestate, and the Admon dated 8 October 1741, mentions Ann Thirtill, his widow, and John Thurtill of Trowse, a barber, whom we can assume was his brother. Henry and Anne Thurtell had four children of whom record has been found.
