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?
