Dear Pat,

I sent you the email below on 7th January and haven't heard from you. I'm wondering if you received it.

Best wishes,

Derrick Norton

Dear Pat,

I'm getting back to an email which you kindly sent to me last August! - hoping you might be able to help me further.

I sent the vicar at St. Jude's Church (now St. Andrew's) a couple of emails as you suggested, but he hasn't found any information.

I was able to visit Weston 11th-13th September (unfortunately not the Saturday) and the Heritage Open Days booklet says St. Jude's was "designed by Hans Price in 1887".

You suggested that George Dyer 1862-1934 was the most likely candidate as church builder, but he would have been aged 25. In the 1881 census he is a "Builder's Assistant" and in 1891 he is a "Contractor", presumably well supported by his Father who is a "Builder & Contractor".

I am wondering whether it might have been more of a family project. Do you have any indications pointing to George Dyer, please?

I have other questions, but thought it best to deal with them one at a time!
Many thanks for the supportive offers of the the Weston FHS.

Best wishes,

Derrick

I think you will find that the George DYER who built St Judes was William's son and he was born in about 1862 in Kewstoke. He died in 1934.  I found it quite difficult to find any documentation about the building of the Church.
