Elizabeth GULLICK c1781-1830
published by Pat Hase on Thu, 14/03/2019 - 12:06

My 3 x great grandfather, Joseph SAUNDERS, married Elizabeth GULLICK at St Mary Redcliffe in Bristol 13 Dec 1802. Joseph was born in Publow in about 1782 and he and Elizabeth had 8 children christened in Publow or Stanton Drew between 1803 and 1822 - including my ancestor, Cherity (or Charity) SAUNDERS, who was born in 1820. 

Elizabeth SAUNDERS nee GULLICK died in 1830 in Stanton Drew and was buried at Pensford, aged 49.  

I'm looking for the parents of Elizabeth GULLICK - can anyone help?

Harriet PUDDY - born 1863 in Mark
published by Pat Hase on Sun, 10/03/2019 - 22:59

My husband's grandmother, Mary Ann PUDDY, was born in Mark in 1861 and had a younger sister Harriet PUDDY who in 1884 married a George BAKER and later lived at 14 Wadham Street in Weston-super-Mare. On the 1911 Census he is listed as Sylvester George BAKER, born in Banwell in about 1861.  I am looking for their burials.  On FreeBMD the death, at the age of 64, of a Sylvester G. BAKER was registered in the Sept qrt 1925 - but where was he buried?  Similarly, a Harriet BAKER died in the Axbridge District in the Sept qrt 1921, aged 57 - but where was she buried?

Lavinia SPERRIN 1825-1900
published by Pat Hase on Fri, 22/02/2019 - 18:09

Lavinia SPERRIN was my gg grandmother.  She was born in West Harptree where she was christened as Lavinia SPERRING on the 11th May 1825, the d/o John & Ann SPERRING.

She married Charles STOKES on the 24th May 1846 at Wraxall Parish Church as Lavinia SPERRIN.  When my g grandmother, Ann STOKES, was born in 1852, her mother's maiden name was given as SPIRING.

I have never been able to find Lavinia on the 1841 census or discover how she met up with Charles STOKES in Wraxall.  I have just found a Somerset born 16-year-old Lydia SPIRRON working as a servant to William WILKINS and family at Hewish West, Yatton on the 1841 census.  Could this be my Lavina or am I clutching at straws?
