    • Initial information received from Gill Greatley (William's 2 x great grand-daughter) who is descended from Reuben.

      William and Sarah's marriage is on the IGI, however none of their children's baptisms appear, and I would expect there to have been children earlier than James b. 1827 since they were married in 1820.

      There are two possible baptisms; for Amelia in 1821 and John in 1824.
      Both are at different churches, and that for Amelia spells Cutbush with an E on the end. Neither are found on censuses.

      William was the founder of a Nursery Gardens which bore his name and which ran from about 1830 still held the name until 1960, albeit then a garden centre. [2]

    • James was a partner with his father in the family Nursery Garden business in Highgate, and then went on to run it himself. In 1881 he employed 58 men and 10 boys.

      The family lived for 20 years at 1 West Hill, Highgate. Whilst the daughters stayed at home, and were probably educated at local ladies schools or at home (although no governess is recorded) the three boys were sent to boarding schools; Herbert to Brunswick House in Barnett and William and Ernest to Totteridge Park in Hertford.

      In 1891, after James had died, the family moved to Barnet, Hertfordshire. Amy was in 1891 at the Royal Masonic Girls School as a boarder, and Jessie at the London Orphans school in Watford, also boarding.
      Elizabeth was in Barnet in 1901, with Ethel living at home.

      Gill has Elizabeth Hickman Cutbush as died 1922, but I haven't found that registration. [2]
