Grateful thanks are extended to Paul Cloutman (UK) for information.

This Cloutman family branch is said to derive from five brothers of Hartland in North Devon, England. A Samuel Cloutman (d. 1763) is buried in the parish church of St. Nectan (in Stoke-by-Nayland) where records of the family reputedly go back to the 1600s.

It is possible - following traditional naming patterns - that John Cloutman (1st) was one of (at least) two sons of the second of the "five brothers" - William Cloutman - who had perhaps married a Curtis daughter since John Cloutman (1st) - with the (presumed) eldest son carrying his own name - John (2nd) - named one of his other sons William Curtis. This latter ancestor married Elizabeth Brett.

William Curtis and Elizabeth named one of their children Curtis William who married Emily Jane Jullion. One of their daughters, Enid Audrey Cloutman, married Henry James Drew Smythe. The names Drew and Smythe were joined by the hyphen in the next generation and the hyphenated name was also adopted and used by Henry James and Enid Audrey Drew-Smythe during their lifetime.

Of the cousin branch of Thomas Cloutman and Mary Prust, there was one known son, Thomas Cloutman. It is believed that the Prust family were landowners of some substance from the Hartland and Elmscot area of Devon.

The image here is of Thomas Cloutman (b. 1776 (?1774) - d. 1862) - the son of Thomas Cloutman and Mary Prust. LDS IGI states baptism as 28 August 1774 at Hartland, Devon, England. His parents are listed as Thomas Cloutman and Mary.

Cloutman's Lane (Croyde) North DevonWriting in May, 2004, Paul states that there is a Cloutman's Lane in Croyde - seen recently by friends of his son. Croyde Bay is a popular surfing beach in North Devon.

Paul continues: "I've sent the Croyde community web site an email asking if they know anything about the eponymous Cloutman - and/or about the reportedly nearby Cloutman's Farm, of which I heard from another source."

Further information will be placed here as soon as anything is known.

Paul was recently commissioned to write the souvenir guide books for the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and for their country estate, Wakehurst Place in Sussex. This project - which took over 18 months - was swiftly followed by his being asked by Kew to write the History & Heritage pages on their Web Site when they became a world heritage site last year (2003).Previous page ... Paul was responsible for writing the Timeline and Places, sections and for the subedit of Kew's own material on People and Plants. This is a site well worth visiting - quite apart from any family interest in the content! Better still - put Kew and Wakehurst (.pdf) on your itinerary. Wakehurst was long associated with the Culpep(p)er family in general - especially during the time of the settlement of Virginia and the New World during the 16th and 17th centuries; for example, Sir Thomas Culpep(p)er followed Berkeley as Governor of Virginia.
