Among those to be touched for King's evil, we find in Petworth parish register note of "Certifficat given for Frances, dawghter of John Lander, March the 29th, 1686."--S. A. C. xxv. 209.

The family of Launder were for some time connected with the parish of Lurgashall, N.W. Sussex, in the sixteenth century ("Castles, Mansions and Manors of Western Sussex," p. 143), and John Launder, husbandman, of Godstone, Surrey, was one of those arrested in 1554 at Derick Carver's house, in Brighton, for heresy, and condemned to be burnt.--Lower, "Sussex Worthies," p. 201.

A marble monument on the east side-wall of Petworth Church has this inscription:

"Here lieth the body of John Peachy, Esq., who departed this life the 25th of May 1693. and the body of Elizabeth his wife, daughter of Robert Palmer, Esq., who died the 24th of July, 1683."--Burrell MS., 5,699 Addl., p. 188.

Berry, "Sussex Pedigrees," p. 106, makes Edward Peachey marry Elizabeth Palmer, and gives quite different dates.

The name is still in the neighbourhood.

On March 4, 1634, John Scutt, of Petworth, obtained a license to sell tobacco.--Privy Seals, 9th Charles I., No. 696.

"Certifficat given for Sara Scut, April the 9th, 1688," to be touched for king's evil."--Petworth register, cit. S. A. C. xxv. 209.

The surname Scutt has been quite common in West Sussex for more than two hundred years, and in the Index of Wills proved at Chichester we find John Scutt in 1674 (perhaps the issuer), John Scutt of Blackhurst, and another of Warnham, both in 1693, and a fourth John Scutt, of Coldwaltham, in 1725; whilst earlier we have John Scutt of Thacham in 1570, and John Skutt of Egdeane in the same year.
