Who was George HILL?
published by gricharduk - 4 months 17 days ago.

"a child to be born of Ann Hall". I meant the child not the father.


Where was Martha GRANT born?

Thanks for the suggestion Lorna,  I haven't ruled her out yet I think the distance between Ashbrittle and Swainswick makes it unlikely but not impossible.

An interesting thought but it looks as if that George HILL was too old to be the one that Dave is looking for if he was fathering a child in  1810.

Could he have been born in Cheddar in about 1811, George Ford HILL, the illegitimate son of Ann HILL?  See our transcriptions.

Very interesting. I was wondering if this Somerset Archive record might be relevant:

It might explain the difficulty finding a baptism record.

Best regards,

HADWIN
published by Pat Hase - 4 months 20 days ago.

The post card was posted in 1903 and in 1901 a Robert HADWIN and family, including an Esther HADWIN were living at a different address in Clifton Road.  However, in 1910 when Esther  "Ettie" HADWIN married Bernard TAYLOR her wedding reception was at Westwood, Clifton Road - see Weston Gazette Sept 21 1910.  The article also lists her wedding presents and the people who sent them.

The HADWIN family must have arrived in Weston from Lancashire, where Ester was born in about 1893.  A son, Alfred Joseph HADWIN was born in Weston in about 1894 and from our transcriptions he was baptised at St Paul's  when 12 years old.

Coincidentally my father-in-law purchased property from Alfred HADWIN in the 1920s.  

Esther had two other brothers John Henry Percival and Ernest Ferdinand (he died and was buried in Weston, aged 6) who were born in Lancashire and it is possible that descendants of the elder one might still be in the locality.

Can anyone add to this?
