Just to start things off - The 1952 Kelly's  Directory of Weston-super-Mare has the following entry.

Locking Road

  • Holloway Claude Leslie (Langtree)
  • Holloway Mrs. A. ladies' hairdresser (Langtree)
  • Holloway & Son, printers (Langtree)

Stanley WARNER

       It is likely that he came from either Barking Abbey School or Mitcham County School.  Accounts of life at the Weston County School can be found in the book "A school in the Forties" by Alec Kingsmill, himself evacuated from Mitcham County School.              

Where was Mary Ann SYMMONS or SIMMONS or SYMONS in 1851?
published by Pat Hase - 8 days ago.

In 1851 there is a Mary Ann SIMMONS, aged 20, a scullery maid, at the Somerset Hotel, High Street Wells.  But her birthplace is given as Wells.  I can't find a birth in Wells for a Mary Ann SIMMONS or variant so could this be who I'm looking for?  Any suggestions?

Many thanks to both you and Graham - I'm really grateful.  It just goes to show how discussion can help solve a problem.  Will now try to get back beyond Elizabeth and perhaps meet up with your Nicolas COLESWORTHY in Pitminster - that's only about 15 miles from Over Stowey.

On reflection, I also agree. I have looked on FreeReg and Findmypast for a confirmatory transcription, but without success.

I agree with you, it reads “Alse Withers was buryed the 19th of May”

Do you think it could have been an Alse (?) Withers buried on the 19th May?  In which case I can stop worrying that Elizabeth might have died soon after birth.
