Looking for a birth record for my Grandad
published by Beth Reneec on Mon, 24/09/2018 - 15:43
I am looking for the birth record of my Grandad, who was born on 28 May 1945 somewhere in Somerset.
His name is David Cedric (Carter), but his mother, Phyllis Anne Carter was unmarried when he was born (her surname at that point was Sly), and she married Ernest Henry Carter in or around 1947.
I think Grandad (David's) birth certificate had "Nash" as the surname, that was Phyllis' parents' surname (her mother and step-father). Phyllis was only 16 when David was born, so there would have been some cover up.
They all lived in Shepton Mallet before moving to Glastonbury and West Pennard, but for some reason there is an indication he might have been born in Weston-Super-Mare.
Does anyone know how I can get more information?

Hello --

My name is Bill Carroll and I live in Charlotte, NC, USA. My great-grandparents, Francis and Florence SLADE, lived in the Lympsham area in the latter half of the 19th century. Francis was had 21 siblings and was the son of Edward and Amelia Slade. I have located a few records of some of Edward and Amelia's other children, but not much. Any help or other connections would be appreciated.

Thank you --

I am trying to find out about the History of Church House next to St Pauls Church in Kewstoke.
We are the present owners and know that it use to be the old rectory/vicarage belonging to the Church
Does anyone have any information or contacts to allow us to find out more about the history of this wonderful house.
We now run it as a successful B&B and look forward to any feedback.
Thank you
Warm regards
