  • Born circa 1829[1] in Gosforth, (ward of Kenton), Northumberland.[2]
  • Married Mary Hedley prior to 1861 census.[2]
  • 1861 census records Thomas and Mary's firstborn as being born in British territory in Prussia. The meaning of this piece of information is unclear. Since Prussia stretched to include today's Belgium at the time it seems possible Thomas was working across the channel at the Ougrée coal mine in Liege, which supplied the John Cockerill steel company's coke ovens from 1817.[3]
  • Children prior to 1861 census:
    1. Isabella Ann (born c. 1858) not to be confused with first cousin Isabella Ann Rutter (born 1860)
    2. Mary J (born c. 1860)
  • Noted in 1861 census[2] as being a coal miner living with wife, Mary R, and 2 daughters, Isabella A and Mary J.
  • Death detail unknown

Thomas was christened on 26th Sept 1829 and the 4th of 9 children of Edward Rutter and Isabella Scott. Thomas appears in 1841 and 1851 census but the surname was mispelt, Ruther for 1841 and Hutter for 1851. Thomas married three times :

Mary Rutter Hedley 29th June 1855, Mary died 19th June 1866. Jane Bell nee Bryson 25th June 1868. Jane died in 1883. I am related to Jane. Martha Payne or Paine nee Robson on 2nd Feb 1885. Both Thomas and Martha died 1905. Mary Miller was a servant and aged 14 in 1861 census. I am following up on thier children and will have more information.
