I'm stuck and need a second or third opinion! I am no longer convinced that my early research on the PUDDY family holds water. Can any one sort out the children of the multitude of John & Mary PUDDYs who seem to have inhabited Mark, Huntspill and Burnham on sea?
I'm fairly secure back to a John PUDDY who married a Marie Jane PUDDY in 1841 and after her death a Mary Ann SYMONs in 1860. For both marriages he said his father was another John PUDDY. From the censuses his birth is approximately 1814 in Burnham on Sea. There is a Baptism in Mark in 1814 of a John PUDDY born in Burnham s/o John & Joan PUDDY. There was a marriage for a John PUDDY who was a widower and a widow Joan MASON nee WHITTING in 1808. John's first marriage was (I think) to a Mary PURNEL in 1784.
Who were his children by Mary PURNEL? When and where was this John PUDDY born? Who were his parents? When did he die? - I don't want much do I?
Thanks for reading this far and I look forward to your help - I'm sure all will be revealed with the help of our transcriptions!
