Does anyone have any photos of the Cardiff Arms public house which was in Meadow Street until at least 1939 when Mrs Emily Banwell was the innkeeper and in 1906 it was Henry Banwell in the year of his death.

Hi I'm trying to understand why my direct line ancestors (below) said in old NZ and Bristol newspaper articles they were from Marsh Farm Berrow when the census's c.1850 -70 list them as employing workers on Unity Farm? (about 2km away). Were both these farms part of the same property prior to Marsh Farm being largely built out by the current village of Berrow today?

Im researching the BURGE family of Claverham/Yatton/Somerset. Our Burge line (Henry) came to Victoria Australia in 1857. His father (Benjamin) was buried at St Marys on the 4th of Aug 1822, his mother (Jane) also many years later. It seems that our Burge ancestors were farm labourers and tannery yard workers. If anyone else is researching or related to this family I'd love to hear from you. Im having trouble finding out where Benjamin came from and who his parents were. Regards Jasmin Burge

Could anyone tell me if there are any old headstones still visible in the churchyard of the above Parish. I am particularly interested in one dating from 1658 which has three names on it, i.e. John Whippey 1658, NATHANIEL DEAN buried 5 March 1724 or 1727 and Frances Tutton, thought to be Nathaniel's daughter.
Nathaniel Dean's burial is not in the Parish register, this was confirmed in a document dated 1900 by the then Rector of the Parish when he was commissioned to research what had become of Nathaniel Dean.

She married my grandfather in 1906 and they moved to Pontypridd.
