Hi. There are many of us Scutts descended from the Affpuddle area of Dorset, and I'm surprised they are not mentioned more often on this website. I have a lengthy study by Geoffrey Scutt (written in the 1970s?) about the Affpuddle Scutts and the Preston (Weymouth) Scutts. It is a very poor carbon copy, but I am happy to send it to you once I have retyped it.Geoffrey found some broken or confused links, but the my line seems to go: Thomas d1599 m Helen Genge 31 Jan 1562 Thomas d1614 Robert d1653 John d1659 m Avice (d1691) Robert d1727 mElizabeth Bridle (1), Elizabeth Green (2) 5 Sep 1699. Robert is buried inside Affpuddle Church. Robert d1784 John d1837 William m.Mary Ann Homer John Thomas Homer m. Louisa Adelaide Fry Arthur Octavius b1864 m. Freda May Palmer(my grandparents) David Arthur Scutt b1925 Winfrid Scutt (me!)b1956 Henry Scutt b1991
I have further details of brothers and sisters on the branches since John Scutt (1758--1837)
I also have a copy of the book on "Affpuddle in the County of Dorset" by Joan Brocklebank which includes many references to the family. My late grandmother Freda Scutt assisted Miss Brocklebank in writing it.
I am a lecturer in archaeology and tourism based in South Devon.
