Weston Worthies - 29 & 30 - John PARSONS and Son
published by Pat Hase on Sat, 03/04/2021 - 15:01

If you visited Weston 185 years ago you might have be able to hire a donkey or a donkey chair with John PARSONS, father or son to escort you around  the area. It would have cost you 6d then to go as far as Locking.  Read the latest profile of the Weston Worthies at the bottom of the Weston-super-Mare Page

Weston Worthy - William MILES M.P.
published by Pat Hase on Thu, 04/03/2021 - 12:29

This Worthy is rather different from the rest and has caused some problems in researching!  It can be found with the rest  of the Weston Worthies by looking at Places / Churches.  Click on the place name, Weston-super-Mare, and then scroll down to the bottom of the page or by going directly to the Weston-super-Mare Page  It is No 27.

Weston Worthies - 25 Frederick MARTILL
published by Pat Hase on Sat, 13/02/2021 - 14:45

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.
