Help with READ
published by Pat Hase - 17 days ago.

If you are assuming that Henry was the son of John & Susanna READ/REED who were married in Winford in 1745 then I'm doubtful if the Susanna baptised in Porlock in 1736 had the same parents. Her father is said to be from Duster.  There is a marriage of a John READ with a Susanna GREGORY in Selworthy in 1727 which seems more likely to be having children in the Porlock area, especially as there was a christening of a Gregory READ in 1734 in Porlock to a John & Susanna from Dunster.  I haven't found a suitable baptism for either Henry or his father yet  but will keep looking.

This portrait is wonderful to see here in colour! Richard Fry was my Gt Gt Gt Gt Grandfather... Incredibly he looks just like my own father Brian James!! There is a real family resemblance here! I also have a picture of his wife Elizabeth Fry (nee Maiden), see below. I am currently researching the Fry family and the James family of Weston-super-Mare in the late 1700s and 1800s. I'd be really interested to learn more and hear from anyone else who may be descendants or interested in these families. I'm also interested in Sidney Jones and his family. I understand he was a tailor in Regent Street, Weston-super-Mare during the 1800s and he was also my Gt Gt Gt Grandfather. Following the death of my Gt Gt Grandfather Alfred James and his wife Hannah James (nee Jones) I believe he took in Sidney James his grandson who was my Gt Grandfather. I also understand that he had an observatory above his tailor's shop, but I don't know much else about him or the Jones family line. Please do get in touch if you are reading this and have any further information. Best wishes, Honey

Have added a back view from Bill Caple to my original query.  The name and address of the photographer has been obliterated by damp.

Many thanks for these suggestions - It really is one of the hardest names I've seen!  Bill Caple has the original - Does the back show where the photo was taken Bill?

According to our records his ashes were scattered in the Garden of Rest on Plot 373 in Milton Road Cemetery and his date of death is given as 6th Dec 1957.  Isabella's ashes are in the same place - she died 21 June 1960.

I think the surname is Bead. In the word 'rememberance' the r is written in the style I use myself and is quite defined. This is missing in the surname.
