Hewish and Puxton Harvest Festival Committee 1927
published by zumrob - 5 days ago.

Hi Kate

I think that No. 16 looks more like Sidney THAYER - it's the hair - see other photo above.

But I also think that 16 and 17 look like brothers. Could No 17 then be Ernest J THAYER? and then with your other idea of family staying together the chap next to him could be Albert CHAMPION (18) - Ernest's father-in-law.

Albert is also standing next to James BAILEY - both long term members of the committee.

Cheers

Rob

Think that is a good call Kate. I have found another photo of JJ Edwards.

from 1939 at the Wick St Lawrence Harvest Home.

He does look like No. 26 but could easily be No. 23.

As for Cecil Stanley EDWARDS - cannot find any mention of him connected to the Hewish Harvest Home - however he was heavily involved in the Wick St Lawrence one (the event was often held on his land) and JJ EDWARDS went on to be chairman of the Wick event so it is not too much a stretch to think that Cecil was also involved in the Hewish version in 1927.

These are the 1933 committee members that I can identify from my tree - S. Thayer - Most likely to be Sidney J Thayer (1889-1948) of South Farm, Puxton. Possibly no. 17?

A and S Hurley - Arthur William Hurley (1894-1948) and Samuel Hurley (1890-1960) - brothers who farmed at Court Farm, Puxton (their sister, Alice, was married to Ernest Frost).

F Plaister – Francis Robert Plaister (1898-1962) of Waywick Farm, Hewish (his older sister, Sarah, was married to Bertram Osmond)

WA and S Osmond – Brothers - William Arthur Osmond (1886-1969) and Ernest Samuel Osmond (1898-1983)- known as Samuel  - of Heathgate Farm, Hewish.

A Frost – Most likely to be Arthur Charles Frost (brother of Ernest)

I can see why you have picked No.26 but I think No.23 is more likely for JJ Edwards. A dark moustache is the only clear feature that can be established from the picture of him with his heifer. I think 23 has a moustache. Also, if him, he is standing near to his brother-in-law, Bertram, and brother, Percy (people tend to stand near friends in group photos). There is a resemblance between 23 and Percy George Edwards which suggests that they could be brothers. I would even argue, from looks alone, that 21 is from the Edwards family too – possibly their younger brother, Cecil Stanley Edwards.

All speculation, Rob - but enjoying the puzzle!

Ethel May Osmond (1883-1968) was Bertram Albert Osmond’s older sister. She married John James Edwards who was the older brother of Percy George Edwards. Percy then married her younger sister, Millicent Emily Osmond.


Richard Clapp b 1780

Hi Jacky

I hope you are well and thanks for your reply.

I had found the burial records for Fanny Tucker / Clapp and her daughter Fanny both in 1814 on Freeorg.

I note from a previous post that you mentioned Clapp family marriages at St Mary Redcliffe.  Interestingly, it seems that Richard was married three times.  Records indicate that the second was to Fanny’s sister Mary at St Mary, Redcliffe.

Best regards

Peter
