Emmanuel Scout Troop
published by Pat Hase on Sun, 07/11/2021 - 17:43

I have added a file entitled "Emmanuel Scout Troop" to the Weston-super-Mare Page.  It is a collection of the names of Scouts who were mentioned in the Log Book of the 9th Weston-super-Mare Scout Troop which was set up in 1929.  Not all scouts are mentioned but if you have relatives who were young men in Weston between 1927 and 1944 it might be worth looking through this file.  I believe it also contains some evacuees.

Weston Worthy - No 16 John HARRIS
published by Pat Hase on Mon, 09/08/2021 - 18:06

John HARRIS - No 16 - is the last Weston Worthy which I am able to post as it has been difficult to identify 3 of them.  If you can help with the missing ones please let me know.  As usual they can be found under Weston Worthies in the main menu.

Weston Worthy - No 39 Henry WILLIAMS
published by Pat Hase on Fri, 16/07/2021 - 19:36

No 39, Henry WILLIAMS, of our 40 Weston Worthies has just been uploaded. There are three gaps still to be filled.  No 16 John HARRIS 1775-1855.  I think those dates are correct but there are several men called John HARRIS and I am not convinced that I have the correct one yet.  The other two missing ones are No 19 which might be a man called JARRETT who has not been identified and the very last one, No 40, which has no name on the back but might be a John WEEKES who was landlord of the Railway Inn.  The whole set can be seen under Weston Worthies in the main menu and any comments would be welcome on the missing ones.

Weston Worthy - Francis H SYNGE
published by Pat Hase on Wed, 07/07/2021 - 18:04

Francis Hutchinson SYNGE was probably the most worthy of inclusion in this Series of Portraits.  He was the first Chairman of the Town Commissioners of Weston when it became a town and as a local Magistrate with many other roles he certainly warrants being remembered.  He is No 38 of the 40 so not many to do now but there are a couple which need filling in because there is some confusion about their identification.  All can be found under Weston Worthies on the main Menu.

Capt George STONE - Weston Worthy No 37
published by Pat Hase on Sun, 27/06/2021 - 21:05

You can now read the profile of Capt George STONE.  It can be found under Weston Worthies in the main menu. He and his family have proved to be very interesting covering:

  • Pleasure trips from Knightstone Island,
  • a brother who kept the Hobbs Boat Inn,
  • a daughter whose marriage banns were objected to when called at Emmanuel,
  • a grandson who tried to derail a train,
  • a son-in-law who was a professional harpist
  • the day to day concerns of someone who became Weston Worthy No 37.

Samuel SERLE - A Weston Worthy?
published by Pat Hase on Mon, 21/06/2021 - 11:28

Samuel SERLE has now been added to the profiles of Weston Worthies. He was a complex character and researching the 36th Weston Worthy has asked many questions, leaving some unanswered, about his life both here and in Australia. Any comments would be welcome.
