Has anyone come across a marriage between Charles CLAPP and Mary Ann COLES, probably in the mid 1820s?
Their first child was baptised at St Bridget's church in Brean on 16th May 1826.
In all the censuses from 1841 until their deaths they were living in Berrow.
In the census records Mary Ann claims to have been born in Berrow some time between 1806 and 1813, but I can find no trace of her birth. There is a Mary Ann Coles, illegitimate daughter of Mary Coles, baptised on 4th July 1806 at Kewstoke, who might be her, unless anyone knows otherwise.

Trying to find more information about the Pain/Payne & related families (thanks to Graham Payne for setting us off in the right direction). George Gould Payne (1797-1877) was the son of Joel Payne (spelling variable) and Mary Gould both of whom would have been born around 1764. George Gould Payne married Ann Andrews.

I’m interested in the name Creyghton/Creighton. My great-grandfather’s brother had the unusual name, James Creighton Keel Reed. Nobody in my family knew where the names Creighton and Keel came from. I have recently discovered a link through JCKR’s grandmother, Catherine Keel, with the family of Henry and Hannah Keel in Yatton. Henry was a farmer.
One of Catherine’s brothers was called Charles Creyghton Keel. He was baptised at Yatton on 15.6.1800. I know that he was living in Cleeve, Yatton at the time of the 1851 census.
