Garbutts of Whitby pre19th century

03.02.14

Captain William Garbutt was born in 1803. His mother’s name is on his indenture ( see previous post) where she is describes as ‘widow of York’.

At the time of this post, her maiden name is unknown, but she appears to have died 3 years after William was indentured, in 1819, at the age of 55. This means that she was born in 1764. Eleanor’s husband is recorded in parish register as Zachariah, a name which was to recur several times within the Garbutt family. Zachariah Garbutt was a mariner ( a seaman or fisherman) of Whitby, born in 1752. He died in 1805, when this youngest son, William, was only 2 years old. Read more...

Catholicism

29.10.13

Until about 1778 Roman Catholicism was a religion that faced official mistrust and prohibition, even though it had remained strong in the north and in Yorkshire since the Reformation two centuries before. No Catholic could sit in Parliament until the1829 Roman Catholic Relief Act. However, from 1778 onwards a Catholic could own property, inherit land and join the army, all forbidden previously.

The Lawson family of Brough Hall were one of the oldest Roman Catholic families in Yorkshire. The first Baronet had been forced abroad in 1653 during the Commonwealth, but he rewarded for his loyalty to the Crown with the baronetcy at the Restoration of Charles II. However, several of his sons served abroad and his youngest son, Thomas became a Catholic priest. Read more...


Garbutt and Lawson family connections

29.10.13

On December 11th 1803, in the Yorkshire coastal town of Whitby, a son was born to a local man, possibly of Sandsend Whitby, who was surnamed Garbutt. There were many Garbutts in the town, and the Christian name of this man is uncertain, but it is likely that it was one Zachariah Garbutt and that possibly he was a sailor or had some other relationship with the sea, as had many others in that small port and fishing town. However, the name of his wife, William’s mother, is known. It appeared in later years on her son’s apprenticeship papers: she was Eleanor, but her origins and maiden name remain unknown.

His Estates were confiscated by the Parliamentarians after they had won the Civil War and he went into exile with his family. Upon the restoration of the monarchy his estates were restored and he was made a baronet in 1665 by Charles II.
