Re: William Shute 1872-1848 Huish
The burial in 1848 at Huish gives his age as 66 so born ca 1782. I couldn't locate a marriage at Huish in 1806 but did find one at Dolton to Sarah BRIGHT which states that he was of the parish of Huish. A William SHUTE was baptised at Huish in 1790, but that seems to late for your William. Have you looked at William Spry SHUTE as father? Another baptism attributed to him states the surname as SPRY alias SHUTE.
