NEW NOTES from John CULLWICK - September 11, 2011
Subject: Very Early Stuff

You may remember that I had correspondence with Jonathan Maxfield
(a descendant of the Cullwicks of Hatton, Shifnal) this Spring 2011 and he gave me new and very significant information. He had found two entries from a lengthy Prayer List from 1532/33 in a book called "A List of Families in the Archdeaconry of Stafford". I have not seen the book yet (which was held in Lichfield Records Office), but it appears to be an early census of the area.

Also, the country was then still Roman Catholic,
all parish churches answered to the Pope in Rome and the Act of Supremacy had not yet been passed.
Hence, it appears to have been quite normal to pray for the souls of the dead, as it is in many Catholic countries today.

The Act of Supremacy 1559 was an Act of the Parliament of England, passed under the auspices of Queen Elizabeth I of England. It replaced the original Act of Supremacy 1534 issued by Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII, which arrogated ecclesiastical authority to the monarchy, and which had been repealed by Mary I of England.
FOR MORE - go to WIKIPEDIA - Act of Supremacy 1559

Thorns, Shipley, Claverley
John COLWYK (head), Margaret (his wife, probably his present one), Margery (his wife, probably dead),
children - STEPHEN, Joan, Elizabeth (probably living), Agnes, Humphrey, Elizabeth (probably dead).

Also in Shipley, Claverley
Stephen JONES, Ellen (his wife),
children - Richard, John, Stephen and Henry.

I think it highly likely that the mother of our mutual ancestor Stephen Cullwick c1520-1592,
.....the ancestor of all Cullwicks and Culwicks today probably,
was nee JONES, a sister of Stephen (JONES).

- (See paragraph 2 below The prayer list of 1532/33 for reasoning) -

Tonwalstrete (Town Well St), Wolverhampton
Nicholas CULWYCKE, Joan (his wife), Margery (his late wife),
children - Elizabeth, Ann, William, John, Margery, Agnes, Margaret, John, Gillian, and William
- and prayers for the souls of xiii (thirteen) departed.

This book "A List of Families..." also suggests the following for further research:

  • 1523/24 Lay Subsidy Returns
  • 1539 Muster Rolls
Bw John

  1. I think VICARAGE is a descendant of the first JOHN CULLWICK of RUDGE, born about 1550 and the eldest son of STEPHEN CULLWICK (C1520-1592) of Thorns (now Thornescroft, Shipley, Claverley). Probably 75 % today with surname CULLWICK or CULWICK descend from JOHN of RUDGE, whose stem was the only one to remain in Shipley/Rudge/Claverley/Pattingham area after 1650.

  2. The prayer list of 1532/33 appears to show STEPHEN (father of JOHN of RUDGE b c 1550) as the eldest child of JOHN COLWYK b c 1480 and his first wife MARGARET. And I am told that, in Shipley in 1532/33, the only other occurence of Christian name Stephen is STEPHEN JONES. Therefore, that is why I think MARGARET (mother of Stephen) was nee JONES and a sister of STEPHEN JONES.

  3. NICHOLAS CULLWICK in Wolverhampton in 1532/33 was most probably a brother of JOHN b c 1480. It looks as if Nicholas had 2 sons William and John, but I doubt either of them had sons, as there seems to be no trail in Wolverhampton. The next occurence of a Cullwick in Wolverhampton was the 1621 marriage of WILLIAM CULWICK to Anne COX at St Peters Collegiate. But WILLIAM is from the Clive (between Shipley and Pattingham and adjacent to Rudge) so I doubt he is a descendant of NICHOLAS.

    I am keeping my options open though,
    as WILLIAM of the Clive's YOUNGEST SON
    - (one of the 3 boys who settled in West Bromwich about 1650)
    WAS NAMED NICHOLAS


VICARAGE (1811-1850) was the youngest child of JAMES and AMELIA CULLWICK (she was formerly ROWLESTONE and nee JAMES).

He was born in Claverley 3 months after his father JAMES (1769-1811) died.

Baby Vicarage's widowed mother MARIA married THOMAS BARTLAM in 1812 and it appears that Vicarage was brought up in CLAVERLEY and married his first wife NANCY PIPER there in 1828 (aged 17). NANCY died just 13 months after the wedding. She was 29 when she died in Beobridge, Claverley in February 1830. She was buried in Claverley churchyard as Ann CULWICK on 7 Feb 1830. Vicarage was only 19 when he was widowed. The suspected cause of death was a complicated child birth when both wife and child were lost.

When he married his second wife SARAH WARD at St Martins, Bham in 1834, they seem to have settled on Rose & Crown Hill in Rednal (now called Rose Hill - the old main road from Bromsgrove to Bham).

Vicarage's elder brother was a farmer there, and Vicarage is also described variously as a farmer or farm labourer or farm waggoner.

VICARAGE was ill for a couple of years before he died in 1850 of dropsy (or hydrop....). It fills the legs with fluid and would have incapacitated him, so any savings would have been spent during this illness. SARAH, in the 1851 census, was a pauper living in REDNAL with most of her young family. Surname is spelt COLWIC.

SARAH (Harriett's mother) died on 2 June 1853 at BIRCH ACRE (quite close to M42/J3). The cause of death was "child bed" and she was 48, the widow of Vicarage Culwick, a waggoner.

MESSAGE from ANDREW
DESCENDENT
PIPER & MUCHALL Families

My connection to VICARIDGE
is through the PIPER and MUCHALL families.
  1. JOHN (b 1761) and THOMASINE PIPER m 1828 at CLAVERLEY had at least five daughters
  2. including
    SUSANNAH, MARIA and NANCY (ANN).
  3. The first daughter SUSANNAH baptised 1791
    married a THOMAS HARPER at PATTINGHAM nr Wolverhampton
  4. after SUSANNAH's death, THOMAS HARPER re-married ELIZABETH MUCHALL
  5. ELIZABETH was the aunt to THOMAS MUCHALL.....my 3X great grandfather

The second connection is through MARIA PIPER, JOHN & THOMASINE's youngest daughter who married JEREMIAH MUCHALL brother of the said ELIZABETH, at KINGSWINFORD in 1831.

Both JEREMIAH & MARIA had witnessed the marriage of VICARIDGE CULWICK to ANN (NANCY) PIPER in 1828 at CLAVERLEY.

On the marriage entry there's a clerical error saying that MARIA was the bride. Where the dignitures are supposed to be placed, it gives the bride as ANN PIPER (the X of ANN PIPER) and likewise in the Banns Register, it gives the name as ANN PIPER.

    The banns entry between Vickeridge (sic) Culwick otp bachelor and *Anne* Piper otp spinster were published a long time before the marriage, on 13th April, 20th April and 27th April 1828. BH
    Vickaridge Culwick otp bachelor and Maria (sic) Piper otp spinster were married in this church by banns this twenty- (date is weird; looks like 'firth', interpeted as 21st on Family Search) December in the Year One Thousand and twenty-eight by me Edwd H Wainwright . This marriage was solemnised between us Vickridge/Vick Ridge or Vicaridge Culwick --- *he signed!!* and the Mark of *Anne* Piper. In the presence of us Jeremiah Muchall marked x, Maria Piper marked x. BH
    Vicarage died 5 January 1850, aged 38, at Kings Norton, occupation labourer. Cause Dropsy. Surname spelt CULWICK, informant James CULWICK, marked x, in attendance, of Kings Norton (Cert). Informant James Culwick was probably the brother of Vicarage, could possibly have been his son. Vicarage was buried 9 January 1850 at St Michael, Cofton Hackett. BH


    + 1 MARIA PIPER
    - bapt 9 Feb 1806 at Claverley parents John and Thomasin
    - married 21 Dec 1828 CLAVERLEY Parish Church

    Maria is Ann(e)
    There's a possible burial of ANN CULWICK on 7 February 1830 aged 29 at CLAVERLEY. The only other detail in the PR is that her abode was BEOBERIDGE. Gen UK shows it was a TOWNSHIP in the parish of CLAVERLEY, and on C1841 it has a few largeish farms - perhaps Vicarage was working on one of them at the time. BH

    I am, at present, researching the CULWICK family and have discovered that my ggg grandfather was a Vicarage Culwick born in Shropshire but they seemed to have moved around a bit. I believe he was born around 1811 to a JAMES & AMELIA. Amelia i believe was Amelia Rowlestone but have not verified this. I cannot beleive that there can be many Vicarage Culwicks.

    My ancester left the Birminham area abt 1860 to go to London where my mum's family have lived ever since. I dont know if your Vicarage and my Vicarage could be the same as I don't hold much with surname spelling as in 1881 there were 10 different spellings of it. Now it seems we are down to the two, double LL & single L

    Have a nice day

    I think VICARAGE as a Christian name is rare.
    My grandfather was CHARLES VICARAGE PACE. I believe his mother EMILY PACE nee CULWICK named her son, Charles Vicarage Pace, my grandfather, after her own father, VICARAGE CULWICK.

    I continue trying to find the VICARAGE/SARAH children on the C1861
    - so far definitely have JAMES (in a farmer's household in Warley Salop, a carter aged 24), EDWARD (Woodsetton, Sedgley, ag lab aged 20), SAMUEL (West Bromwich, apprentice brass caster aged 17).

    Possibles (because of strange spellings or poor legibility) - CHARLOTTE in Northfield, servant aged 24/26, HARRIET in Wednesbury aged 12, niece of SAMUEL WARD, malster's labourer aged 36 born in Warwickshire and his wife ELIZABETH aged 30, born in Sardon (sic) Staffs, and MARY ANN Culliss (a variant) in Wednesbury aged 13, house servant born in Birmingham in the household of JOHN COOPER, an iron works labourer aged 62 born in Sedgley and his wife MARY 55, also Sedgley.
    - Barbara Heenan - 14 May 2004 - researching descendent
    Worcester Record Office - Barbara Heenan found
    A SAMUEL WARD was buried on 30 March 1853 aged 59 - possible brother of Sarah?

    Also found the baptism in Claines of a daughter of FREDERICK JONES and MARY ANN nee CULLWICK: Harriet, on 20 May 1883, address Fearnall Heath. No more for them up to 1890; they could have moved soon afterwards.

    In the 1861 census in Wednesbury,
    HARRIET (later Mrs WHITEHOUSE) appears to be living with her mother SARAH's younger brother SAMUEL WARD and his wife ELIZABETH nee HASSALL. Samuel is stated as being born in Chapel Green, Warks (possibly the Chapel Green adjacent to the chapel in Chapel Lane, WYTHALL) and ELIZABETH is born in Saredon, Staffs.
    John Cullwick writes
    There are a lot of people currently researching VICARAGE. And they will be delighted to welcome another new cousin.

    My own branch descends from RICHARD CULLWICK who was a gentleman of WADELEY in the parish of DEUXHILL and GLAZELEY near BRIDGNORTH. We think he was born in CLAVERLEY parish just before records began abt 1560-1567. And we suspect his father was a churchwarden and yeoman, STEPHEN CULLWICKE, who died 1592 aged abt 60. And STEPHEN, I think, will also be your 1 0 or 11 x great grandfather. Our first mutual ancestor.

    Almost certainly (about 90% probable) you descend from WILLIAM CULLWICK of the CLIVE in PATTINGHAM who married ANNE COXE at Wolverhampton St Peters Collegiate in 1621. And I think WILLIAM will be a grandson of STEPHEN, though not sure who his father might have been.

    I will let you absorb all of that.
    You may think this is all knowledge we have had for years, but the truth is that we had little idea about most of this as recently as last August. Gord Pace (the Cullwick webmaster and a descendant of VICARAGE) and I were both as certain as you that VICARAGE was a son of MICHAEL Cullwick of the CROWN in Bromsgrove. But MICHAEL was very rich, and VICARAGE was very poor, and I haven't seen any connection yet apart from BROMSGROVE.

    Best wishes
    John

    4. EDWARD CULWICK (one l) was born on 15th June 1877 at Loney Green, Saredon, illegitimate son of Mary Ann Culwick, a domestic servant of Loney Green, Saredon.
    5. The events were registered by the same registrar and the entries were signed by the informants or there would have been reference to a mark being made.
    I have worked at a register office; the certified copy must be done exactly as the original, even if there are obvious spelling mistakes; thus we have two sisters spelling the Cul(l)wick name differently.

    Edward's father remains a mystery - could he have been one of the Pace brothers?? Even today, unless the parents are married, a father's details can only be entered if he attends the registration with the mother and gives his consent.

    Mary Ann married JONES (somewhere like Worcester or Stourbridge) in 1882 so I guess Edward would have become their eldest son. may have become pregnant with Pace cousin

    GORD PACE speaking

    I'm not absolutely sure about this
    but Barbara's findings, such as

    1. MARY ANN married JONES
    2. EDWARD would have become their eldest son
    3. Pace cousin

    These facts, added together
    may fall into place, in my family that went to ALBERTA around the 1886 completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway

    Let me gather some facts

    1. MARY ANN CULWICK ( who married JONES )
      was my grandfather Charles V PACE's aunt
      sister of his mother EMILY CULWICK

    There was - SAMUEL EDWARD JONES at Medicine Hat, Alberta - said by my PACE aunts in Montreal to have been related to my grandfather CHARLES VICARAGE PACE - or was it also said that SAMUEL's wife was the relative of my grandfather CV PACE.

    It now appears to me after considering what Barbara has found about MARY ANN CULWICK marrying a JONES and my grandfather CV Pace's mother EMILY PACE nee CULWICK being MARY ANN CULWICK's sister

    I seems very likely the SAMUEL EDWARD JONES comes into my PACE family ancestry - here -

    The other sister HARRIET married a WHITEHOUSE who was a steam engine driver who seemed to disappear from the English Midlands.

    I have wondered if WHITEHOUSE also came out to ALBERTA at that time when

    The Canadian Pacific RAILWAY
    was completed - 1886
    - as did my grandfather's aunt & uncle
    MARY ANN (PACE) and HENRY SQUIRE
    settling at Lethbridge
    just a few miles west of MEDICINE HAT, where SAMUEL JONES settled.

    It looks rather likely that SAMUEL JONES wife was this MARY ANN CULWICK - but I am not absolutely certain.

    Gord Pace - Ontario Canada - writes
    I think VICARAGE as a Christian name must be rare.
    My grandfather was CHARLES VICARAGE PACE. I believe his mother EMILY named her son, Charles Vicarage Pace, my grandfather, after her own father, VICARAGE CULWICK.

    >Incidently
    near Bromsgrove is Cleeve Prior where VICARIDGE and LAMPIT surnames occur in the parish register. - a MARY LAMPIT - wife of JOSEPH PACE were grandparents of JOSEPH ARCH of BARFORD, WAR.

    JOSEPH ARCH became rather famous.
    Here is some history on JOSEPH ARCH

    1. He was a Methodist preacher -
    2. Founder of the National Agricultural Workers' Union
      at Leamington in 1872 which is said to have become the largest trades union in Gt.Britain
    3. and later, JOSEPH was a Member of Parliament.

    My paternal grandmother was ANN ARCH
    who married my grandfather, Charles VICARAGE Pace. This PACE - ARCH puzzle is the subject of some of my research. I've yet to learn how JOSEPH ARCH connects to my grandmother. My aunts used to talk about this when they all lived at Montreal.

    Gord Pace of Ontario, Canada writes
    VICARAGE CULWICK - father of my great grandmother EMILY CULWICK born about 1845 near BROMSGROVE Wor. EMILY married EDWARD PACE 1868 at SHARESHILL, Staffordshire.

    The SHARESHILL marriage notice shows EMILY's father as VICARAGE CULWICK in 1868. EDWARD PACE died at 31 in 1877. EMILY then remarried REUBEN DUDLEY of CANNOCK and later ESSINGTON - click on REUBEN DUDLEY to learn more about EMILY's second marriage and ESSINGTON family.

    I'm therefore, interested in CULLWICKS. New found info reveals EMILY was daughter of VICARAGE CULWICK and SARAH WARD - m St Martins BIRMINGHAM 20 Oct 1834. The WARD family show in SHARESHILL parish where the PACE family also showed since the 1720s. VICARAGE was a son of JAMES CULWICK and AMELIA ROWLESTONE who married at WORFIELD Shropshire 11 Feb 1793.

    • 3 JAMES CULWICK - 1838-1902 - m 13 Oct 1863 All Saints West Bromwich signed with a cross, he was 27 - appears to have been a double wedding with his brother JOHN.
      + ELIZABETH COX m 1863 She was 23, spinster of West Bromwich, father WILLIAM COX, gardener. Witnesses were John COX who signed with a cross (presumably brother of Elizabeth) and Ann GALE who signed. It is interesting that brother John signed and spelt his name CULWICK, yet it became CULLWICK from then on.

    John Cullwick notes -
    In 1881 census, Elizabeth nee COX is CULLOCK (sic), living in Hermitage Road, Edgbaston with gt gt grandfather James Cullock (son of Vicarage) - Elizabeth is "38, born Harborne"

    - I think it highly likely that her baptism is the one on 16 Aug 1840 in Harborne Parish Church (parents William and Ann COX). - She clearly had a brother JOHN (marriage witness), but I cannot locate the family on the 1851 census - nor do I have access to 1841, 1861 1871 or 1891. JC
