This is an update on my query earlier this month regarding the BARTLET(T) family's connection with the JAQUES/JACKWAYS/JAKEWAYS family. 

Simeon Somers BARTLET(T) and his wife Mary had three children baptised at St James, Winsccmbe: Frances, Simeon Chouval and Jon, in the years 1753, 1754 and 1756.  My ancestor Jane JAQUES/JAKEWAYS, baptised Winscombe 1732, gave birth to an illegitimate daughter, Jane BARTLET JAKEWAYS in Banwell in 1766.

Simeon Somers BARLET(T) was born in Bristol in 1733 and died in Bristol in 1774.  His connection with Winscombe seems to have been fairly temporary, but it also seems likely the family would have been one of the prominent families of the parish, albeit briefly, and I would like to know if there are any records which show the residents of the parish in the mid-eighteenth century.

Does anyone know of any documents that would provide information relating to Winscombe residents in the mid-eighteenth century?

Any ideas would be most welcome,

Julie Jakeway

Have you looked at the list of documents pertaining to Winscombe which are at the Somerset Archives?  Apart from the Church Registers there are the Accounts of the Overseers of the Poor which list not only those receiving aid but also the rate payers of the district. https://somerset-cat.swheritage.org.uk/records/D/P/winsc/13
