I am making a last attempt to find the birthplace of my x4 great grandfather John Payne born about 1774. He married Hannah Sarah Bailey in Bleadon in July 1798. Hannah was from the Parish but the record states he was from Blagdon Parish.
He married again in 1808, as a widower of Bleadon, to Mary Petheram.
Having searched all the Blagdon and nearby Parish records, I have not been able to match him with any likely parents.
He had two sets of children from his marriages so wondered if any of this information sounds familiar to other Members with Pain/Payne ancestors from Bleadon or Uphill.
