I am trying to find details for Emily Jarvis of Brent Knoll. She was born around 1864 but I cannot find a baptism for her and she does not appear to be the daughter of anyone in the family she lives with. I think she may be the illegitimate child of one of the children of George and Harriet Jarvis. She seems to be living with Edmund Jarvis, sometimes a niece or a housekeeper to him. There is a civil registration 2/1864 Axbridge for Emily Janetta Jarvis and a marriage using the name Emmie, to William Cox Axbridge 3/1897. Her daughter Mary Cox born abt 1898 South Brent is the only livin

Hello I'm trying to trace my great great grand father JOSEPH MILLER. He was born in Banwell in 1928, I have traced him to Newcastle on Tyne where he was a shoemaker in 1861, he was married that year and his marraige cert states his father was also named JOSEPH and was also a shoemaker. I can't find any MILLERS at all, should I accept that he may be JOSEPH MELLIER?

Looking at the 1871 census in findmypast, my ancestor Maria Winter (nee Sperrin) lived in Athenlean House in Christ Church parish. To one side of this property on teh censu there is a pub called Prince of Wales Inn, to the other side is, or appears to read Arley Terrace. Can anyone help me to be more specific where this area of Weston might be. I have looked at an 1885 map of Weston and searched the ChristChurch parish but no luck
Selina HASE married Edwin COX on the 10th July 1887 at Emmanuel Church, Weston-super-Mare. They lived in Weston-super-Mare and had no children. Edwin died in 1938 and Selina in 1946 and were both buried in Weston Cemetery in Grave W330. According to her Probate entry on Ancestry, Selina died at 1 Station Road, Holy Cross, Pershore and had been living at Brook House Cottage, Cropthorne near Pershore. I've no idea why she moved there after Edwin died - she had a brother living in Birmingham but the rest of the family were still in Weston.

I’m searching for BMD records of The Church of St. Michael & All Saints in Rowberrow, Somerset. If you know where I might find them, please let me know. Specifically, for the Clatworthy Family in the 17-1800s.
Simon PALMER, as featured in this month's Update and with a portrait, was born in Lympsham in 1807 and died in Weston-super-Mare in 1886 - He was buried Weston Cemetery - Grave Tc 755 - alongside his wife Ann who had died in 1869. The MI gives Ann's date of birth as 2nd June 1809 and the censuses give her place of birth as Kewstoke. What was her maiden name? I also need help sorting out his marriages.
