christmas percy bloom
published by Pat Hase - 1 months 16 days ago.

A Christmas Percy BLOOM who was born 30th Oct 1908 died in Norfolk in 1977.  He was buried in East Ruston Cemetery.  See the free site Gravestone Photographic Resource . In 1911 he was living with his widowed father, Jacob BLOOM and his grandmother, Hannah BLOOM in Burlingham st Andrew, Norfolk.

Alma Marie BREGEON was buried in the old Churchyard on Uphill.  There is a photo of her grave on the free site Gravestone Photographic Resource. When we are in the Library this afternoon we will look to see if there is an obituary in the local newspaper.

Thanks Dave - that was my problem exactly - I had picked up the possible marriage of a Mary HUNT to a William PARKER in 1745 and the burial of a William PARKER in 1750 but the burial of a Mary PARKER "wife of William" rather spooked me.  I hadn't considered that if she had been Mary HUNT she would have been a widow at that point - thanks for that. 
I will see if I can find any other information about Mary HUNT and look at those other two marriages you mentioned. Many thanks

There is a marriage of a William PARKER to Mary HUNT in Winford on 12 August 1745. And a burial of a William PARKER there on 2 September 1750. Looks possible. The problem is that (as I suspect you know!) there is a burial of a Mary PARKER on 31 May 1752. However, she is referred to as the wife of William, rather than the widow/relict. Other women buried around this time were referred to as widow (eg Mary WILCOX 6 December 1752) so my money is on the burial on 31 May 1752 not being Mary HUNT.

There are a couple of marriages of a William PARKER to a Mary within spitting distance of Winford - to Mary ALLEN on 13 April 1729 in Blagdon and to Mary EDGEHELL on 18 April 1704 in Stowey. Each of those Marys is likely to have been older and therefore a more likely candidate for a death in 1752.

None of this is conclusive, of course. And I haven't looked at the Parish Registers to see if there is any useful information not in the transcriptions.


Gallop Tea Gardens, Dundry

What a fantastic piece of research! - thank you so much for posting. It demonstrates how helpful newspaper articles can be in putting flesh on your family tree.  However, it also shows how errors can occur in print - I think that Harriet 's husband was Samuel HARWOOD (not George) and - this is a minor point - that Jessie was Harriet's step-daughter, a child from Samuel's first marriage to Sophia PEARCE.

It is interesting to note that by the time of John & Emily GALLOP's Golden Wedding in 1927 it is likely that the Tea Gardens were being run by Jessie OLDFIELD, although they were still living there.

I would say that Harriet's daughter, Jessie Eliza Oldfield (nee Harwood) was running the Tea Gardens between 1923 and 1926. She was an executor for her mother's estate (and presumably inherited as well). Her funeral report in 1932 states "of Ye Olde Tea Gardens".
