February 2024 Newsletter
published by lily39 - 3 months 24 days ago.

coming late to the Feb newsletter re one's store of family information, I have the additional problem of 30 years of village information on its history as well as its families. I find resource centres are already saying they are running out of room and cannot offer to take anything. All I can do is every year try to go through what I have and lessen the load if I can and hope someone in the parish will take it over at some stage as a future resource. If the paper stuff goes thank goodness for the amount I have put onto a computer!

I agree with you, Peter.  Looking at our transcriptions of baptisms at Long Ashton Church there are 49 entries between 1843 and 1896 where the abode is given as "Workhouse, Long Ashton"

Bedminster union :My interest - the family concerned were not in the workhouse but were locals who were unable due to illness to get to church at Long Ashton/Flax or Barrow Gurney - their child was christened at the chapel by a local vicar - not sure which one  - I do think  that chapel was consecrated as  the family would have been quite sharp on that .... but  thats why i am trying to find the records.....

As regards your Browns at Wraxall - recommend visit to Taunton to possibly look at other Wraxall records from the parish chest  ?

Best wishes

I think I have the answer. My grandfather was baptised in Long Ashton church.

So there wouldn't be expected to be a register for any chapel in the workhouse. There was no chapel in the original design. The chapel was built at the expense of William Gibbs of Tyntesfield, which I think indicates that it would have been private and not licensed for any rites of the established church.

It's not directly relevant, but the workhouse collection includes a register of births in the workhouse. It gives date of birth sex of child name of mother parish and whether legitimate. I don't recall a register of baptisms. My assumption is that the chapel was not consecrated.
