No 26 of the Weston Worthies is now available on the Weston-super-Mare Page If anyone has difficulty finding it please let me know. All the Worthies are with other documents relating to Weston-super-Mare under Places/Churches in the Main Menu. John MAUNDER owned land in Weston before the town was developed including the land on which the Wadham Street Baptist Church was built. Looking forward to the first Zoom Members' Meeting on Thursday 25th Feb at 7.00pm. Details about how to join have been sent to all members.
I have added the profile of Frederick MARTILL to the Weston-super-Mare page. With thanks to Dave Erasmus who helped decipher the 1841 census. I will leave it for you to judge whether Mr MARTILL deserves his place amongst the Worthies. He was quite a character who lived through some interesting times in the development of Weston.
Richard and Betty MUGGLEWORTH were active in Weston during the first half of the 19th Century. Both were Weston Worthies and their profile can be now be seen at the bottom of the Weston-super-Mare Page
The latest profile in this series has been uploaded to the Weston-super-Mare Page. It is of John LIGHT, a saddler of Weston and if you have any corrections or additional knowledge about him I would be pleased to read your comments.
The profile of Weston Worthy No 21 - Mrs Jane KITCHEN is now available on the Weston-super-Mare Page. Just scroll to the bottom of the page to see it. Still looking for information about Worthies 16 & 19, John HARRIS and somebody called JARRETT. I would also like more information about Jane's husband, Benjamin KITCHEN (1772-1820), not a Worthy, but it would add to Jane's profile. Thank you.
I have just uploaded No 20 of this series which should mean that I am half-way through but as you will have read in the Newsletter I have had to omit No 19 JARRETT because I have no definitive information about him. As is the case with all these Worthies if you can help with him, John HARRIS or any of the others please contact me! They can all be seen at the bottom of the Weston-super-Mare Page
