St. Jude's Church
published by Derrick Norton on Wed, 14/08/2019 - 20:06

Dear Pat,

My Canadian 3rd cousin, advised locally cousin by David Hockey, tells me that George Dyer 1826-1905 built St. Jude's Church (now a Greek Orthodox?).

My research shows he was a tailor in all censuses 1851-1901.

I wonder if his younger brother William Dyer 1838- 1919 was the builder, who was responsible for much house building as a land agent, Town Commissioner, and his obituary is in Weston Library. You helped me with him previously.

How would I find any records for St. Jude's Church, please?

PUDDY and BAKER Weston-super-Mare
published by Pat Hase on Sat, 03/08/2019 - 23:52

This is a photo of my husband's grandmother who was a Mary Ann PUDDY born in Mark in 1861 (on the census as 4 days old). She was christened at Mark Methodist Church which was part of the same circuit as Victoria Methodist in Weston, d/o John & Mary Ann PUDDY.  She married John Millard HASE on Christmas Day 1885 at what is now the United Reform Church in Waterloo Street and we think this photo was taken to mark the marriage.

A younger sister, Harriet PUDDY, married Silvester George BAKER in 1884 but I haven't found details of their marriage yet.  Perhaps I should bite the bullet and send for it!.  Silvester and Harriet BAKER eventually settled in Wadham Street and had 2 sons and 4 daughters.   If anyone knows more about this BAKER family I'd be glad to hear about it.

Mary Ann and Harriet PUDDY had a brother, Charles who became a Policeman in Cardiff and another sister Phoebe who had a short and sad life entering Axbridge Workhouse with an illegitimate son who had been born in a barn!  

They also had 7 half-siblings, the children of their father's first marriage to a Maria Jane PUDDY whom John had married in Burnham on Sea in 1841.  So here is another family I need to research so any links would be appreciated.  Thanks for reading this far!

John Owen (1890-1967)
published by Paul Tracey on Sat, 27/07/2019 - 17:16

Hi. I am researching my wife’s family but have got stuck. My wife’s grandfather was John Owen (1890-1967). He married Ellen Caple from Compton Bishop. John’s father was also John (1860-?) who married Sarah Ann Stevens. John and Sarah lived in Devon, largely in the Uffculme/Culmstock area near Tiverton. They had ten children - John, Hilda M (b1892), Nellie (b1893), Harold Donald (b1896), Florence (b1900), Laura Rose (b1902), Dorothy Emma (b1904), twins Lionel William and Edward Richard (b1907), and Robert (b1908).

I just cannot find what happened to Laura, Florence and Dorothy using Ancestry and Family Search. They are probably there somewhere, but large numbers of American records keep popping up, despite the search being restricted to UK.

HELP....

James MILLARD c1756-1845
published by Pat Hase on Fri, 28/06/2019 - 21:40

Who were the parents of James MILLARD?  He only appears on one census - 1841 - when he was living at Cross in the parish of Compton Bishop, with his second wife, Elizabeth, and described as a Somerset-born, 80-year-old farmer.  The tithe map of 1838 shows that he owned just over 2 acres of land. As a widower, he had married Elizabeth SEGAR on the 19th Sept 1832 at Compton Bishop Church.   In October 1787, as a bachelor, he had married Jane PARFREY in Axbridge and they had 9 children, the first baptised in Axbridge in 1788 (surname MILLAR) and the rest all christened in Compton Bishop.  His first wife, Jane, died in 1809

When James died in 1845, his age was given as 88 - but where was he born and who were his parents?
