Lavinia SPERRIN 1825-1900
published by Pat Hase on Fri, 22/02/2019 - 18:09

Lavinia SPERRIN was my gg grandmother.  She was born in West Harptree where she was christened as Lavinia SPERRING on the 11th May 1825, the d/o John & Ann SPERRING.

She married Charles STOKES on the 24th May 1846 at Wraxall Parish Church as Lavinia SPERRIN.  When my g grandmother, Ann STOKES, was born in 1852, her mother's maiden name was given as SPIRING.

I have never been able to find Lavinia on the 1841 census or discover how she met up with Charles STOKES in Wraxall.  I have just found a Somerset born 16-year-old Lydia SPIRRON working as a servant to William WILKINS and family at Hewish West, Yatton on the 1841 census.  Could this be my Lavina or am I clutching at straws?

Milton Road Cemetery Digital Map?
published by sunray on Sun, 17/02/2019 - 8:27

Just wondering if there is a digital map of the graves at Milton Road cemetery?

I'm looking to find the exact location in the cemetery of a grave site.

I found the grave site details via your Milton Road Cemetery records on your website

Unfortunately it is an unmarked grave with no head stone but is listed as being in the Tc section, Grave No. 1824

I have an old picture taken in 1951 of a child standing in front of the unmarked grave if that helps.

Who were these entertainers?

Was there someone called WALKER in this group?  What sort of act did they do?

Does anyone have any thoughts on where the picture below was taken or what the occasion was. I understand that the picture includes a Richard & Winifred May who were deceased 1957. They lived in Stafford Road, WsM and Richard worked at Locking Camp.

Thank you
