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.
