Who were the parents of James MILLARD? He only appears on one census - 1841 - when he was living at Cross in the parish of Compton Bishop, with his second wife, Elizabeth, and described as a Somerset-born, 80-year-old farmer. The tithe map of 1838 shows that he owned just over 2 acres of land. As a widower, he had married Elizabeth SEGAR on the 19th Sept 1832 at Compton Bishop Church. In October 1787, as a bachelor, he had married Jane PARFREY in Axbridge and they had 9 children, the first baptised in Axbridge in 1788 (surname MILLAR) and the rest all christened in Compton Bishop. His first wife, Jane, died in 1809
When James died in 1845, his age was given as 88 - but where was he born and who were his parents?
