Ones I can’t place!!

This is where I shall list those holders of the surname who I have not been able to connect to any of the existing branches. Hopefully it won’t be too big a list!…And then of course I hope that you, dear readers, can fill in some of the gaps so that these twigs get reattached to their correct branches!!

Also Robert Shout son of James & Rebecca baptised 1 March 1848 in Saffron Walden, Essex

(new entry Dec 2018)


I’ve found yet another Robert Shout. This time on a list of men eligible for selection for the militia in the tything of Knighton in the county of Dorset, in 1798. Knighton lies roughly between Yeovil and Sherborne, the area where Robert Howard Shout was active some years later, but there is no known connection.

Joshua Shout – son of Henry Shout of Harwood YKS baptised 16 July 1719. No idea who these may be!

(New entry June 2018)


Major Shout, buried at Helmsley 1737. What connection is there? Could he be a son of William or perhaps his brother… ______________________________________________________________

John Shout Feather Merchant of 25 Bartholomews Close in Wakefields Merchant and Tradesman General Directory dated 1794


Thomas Shout miller buried at Birdsall, Yorkshire 10th January 1729

also William Shout baptised at Birdsall 6th March 1728, mother recorded as Catherine but no father listed


The Genealogist site has the will of Benjamin Shout, of London, Distiller  dated 1699. He identifies his father – also Benjamin, as well as wife Sarah and daughter Elizabeth. I think these are the earliest holders of the name in London found so far. But who are they related to??


Joseph Shout, greengrocer of Molton St – could this be the same individual as is recorded in the 1851 census living at 14 Cheshire St in Bethnal Green, with wife Mary Ann (1806), daughter Mary Ann (1830), Jane (1835), Sarah (1837), Emma (1844), William (1846), Ellen (1849) – all born in Middlesex


Thomas Tinmouth married Philis Shout 28th November 1789 at St Katherines by the Tower (London)


William Shoute of Kirkby Ravensworth, Saddler and Harness Maker declared Bankrupt as reported in the Durham Chronicle 9th December 1842. Kirkby Ravensworth is close enough to Richmond to be significant!


Marriages  found in Sunderland from Boyds Index. the first is

Hannah Shout to George Wilkinson in 1779, then

Elizabeth Shout married Thomas Watson in 1782 and lastly

Lanyell (or Lanial or Lionel) Shout married Mary Shepherd (or Shipherd) in 1811.



ANN ELIZABETH SHOUT, formerly of Bilsdale, in the County of York, and niece of Miss Ann Bonwell, late of Stokesley, in the same county, Spinster, deceases, will hear something to her advantage, on application to Messrs. I P and J C Sowerby, Solicitors, Stokesley.

Stokesley January 13th 1858

quoted  from York Herald dated 23 January 1858

who was this – what was the connection of Ann Bonwell to the Shouts??

Bilsdale lies between Stokesley and Helmsley . For Ann Elizabeth to be the niece she must be the daughter of a sister of Ann, who married a Shout.  The only similar name I have in my records is BONNEL, but unfortunately that is also an ANN and she married William Shout in 1788 which is much too early for the relationships to work in this case. Ann Bonwell appears to have been born around 1778 -80 according to the 1851 census, although in 1841 she is recorded as 50, which would put her birth between 1785 -90…In the 1851 census she is living with her widowed sister Elizabeth Hill (age72) but I can’t find any other trace of them.


Robert Shout and his daughter Charlotte

Chamber of London 30th day of Sept 1839.

Born within the Liberty of the City, to wit at Newman Court Cornhill                                                                                 Charlotte Shout                                                                                                                                                                                           Daughter of Richard Shout                                                                                                                                                                     Citizen and Needlemaker of London, came before the Chamberlain, the day and year aforesaid, and desired to be admitted into the Freedom of the City by Patrimony, in the said Company of Needlemaking because she is  legitimate and was born after the Admission of her Father into the said Freedom. The admission of the Father is entered in the book marked with the letter A and bears the date the 2nd Day of October in the 20th Year of the reign of George the 3rd and in the year of our Lord 1780.

Born 1793

But who was Richard and what happened to Charlotte?


Robert Shout

An item in Durham County Advertiser dated 10th September 1830 says “Yesterday in Vine St aged 72 Mr Robert Shout, foreman at Sunderland Pier and brother to the late Mr Matthew Shout, civil engineer, formerly of that place”

If this is indeed the brother of Mathew then who was the grocer who went bankrupt?


Thomas Shout

In Sunderland I have a record of Thomas Shout and his wife Isabella having  their son Thomas Harland Shout christened on 5th October 1790 at Spring Garden Lane Presbyterian Chapel. He was born on 1st October 1790.

I believe that Thomas senior was a Landing Surveyor who superintended the landing waiters, probably at Sunderland Customs house. I have thus far not found any further details on marriage or other children. I would have thought it unlikely that in this position he would have been “local” as the risk of corruption might be too great. But where might he have come from?  I don’t have any spare Thomases that might be him…Was Harland her maiden name?…_

I have examined the register of births at Spring Garden Lane Baptist Church (on microfilm at Tyne & Wear Archives and found two other children to the couple – namely Alexander Jonathon born 4th December 1791 and baptised 14th following; and Eliza born 5th March 1793 and baptised 18th of same month.

This is further confused by a burial entry at Sunderland Holy Trinity church for James Shout in 1798 aged about 49, whose occupation is described as Customs House Officer! Could this be a mistake in the register which should have been for Thomas?

JOHN SHOUT reported in Morning Post 5th March 1889

Middlesex sessions

John Shout, labourer, was brought up to be dealt with as an incorrigible rogue and vagabond. Mr Joseph Bosley, Mendicity Officer, informed the court that the prisoner was in the habit of begging of ladies as they were leaving shops in the Strand, and knowing him to be a very violent person he procured assistance and took him into custody. He had been several times convicted. A sentence of 12 months hard labour was passed.
