|This website says John Thurtell lived at 80 Crow Street, Norwich, and Trowse Newton and Trowse Milgate, all in Norfolk, England. He was a peruch maker (wig maker). He made his will March 11, 1772, signed by his own hand, and presumably died before 23 April the same year when the will was examined and the executors sworn. His baptism is recorded in Trowse Newton 19 September 1731, son of John and Elizabeth Thurtell. In his will he disposed of property in Norwich St. John de Sepulchre, Trowse Newton, and Trowse Milgate, all in Norfolk. He is also mentioned in his father's will, 1767 and 1769 by which he was left a share of his father's Boarstreet property in Norwich, and was to be compensated for property in Hempnall Norfolk willed to his brother James. He may then have already been in possession of the property in Trowse Newton since disposal of it is not mentioned in his father's will.|
John Thurtell married Hannah Chambers on 29 February 1756 at St. George Tombland, Norwich. She was in 1772 executrix of his will, with his brother James the executor, and was the sole heir mentioned in her husband's will. She was to receive the property in St. John de Sepulchre in Norwich, the property in Trowse Newton, and the money from the sale of property in Trowse Milgate.
The Court Roll of the Manor of Trowse Newton, 25 November 1772, also mentions this John Thurtell. There it is recited that at the Court of November 1765, when he was admitted at the surrender of Anthony Freestone, John Thurtell, further described as the younger of Norwich, barber, surrendered to the use of his will his copyhold messuages, lands, tenements and hereditaments. Now (25 November 1772) his widow Hannah comes to Court with his will dated the previous 11th March, in which he left her his messuage or tenement with appurtenances in Trowse Newton, to which she is accordingly admitted and surrenders to the use of her will. And in the margin of this record it is noted that on 1 November 1785, Hannah as Hannah Dobson surrenders the property to Richard Youngs. Could this have had something to do with the reexamination of the will of her late husband's father in 1784?
John and Hannah Thurtell had one daughter who is not mentioned in the will, Hannah Thurtell.
