Family History


Jeremiah CULLUM was baptised 24 May 1754 in Rougham, Suffolk1. He was buried on 13 Feb 1818 in Rougham1.

Recorded addresses :-
Rougham, Suffolk (Bapt. 1754, Marriage 1776, Children's Bapts 1786 - 1797, Burial 1818)

Jeremiah and his wife were presumably in another Parish between their marriage in 1776 and their children's baptisms in Rougham which don't start until 1786. Unconfirmed data possibly has them in Stanstead from about 1779-1784.

He was married to Susan FROST on 8 Apr 1776 in Gedding, Suffolk1.

Susan FROST was possibly baptised on the 26 Oct 1754 in Gedding2. This comes from the Suffolk Family History Society parish register transcripts for Gedding. However upon checking the actual register this baptism is recorded as for a child named Simon, the son of Simon Frost & Mary (Ray). I will check the Bishop's Transcripts to see what they have recorded. The SFHS could not shed any light on this discrepancy. However it seems a coincidence that this baptism date roughly matches the age for Susan as given at her burial. The 1754 baptism may well be for Susan with the father's name accidentally repeated for the child.

She was buried on 15 Aug 1837 in Rougham, Suffolk aged 82 years (ie. born ca. 1755)1.
