If you visited Weston 185 years ago you might have be able to hire a donkey or a donkey chair with John PARSONS, father or son to escort you around the area. It would have cost you 6d then to go as far as Locking. Read the latest profile of the Weston Worthies at the bottom of the Weston-super-Mare Page
The latest profile of a Weston Worthy; that of No 28 Samuel NORVILL, has been published on the Weston-super-Mare Places Page. Please add any comments, corrections or additions to this or any of the other Weston Worthies.
This Worthy is rather different from the rest and has caused some problems in researching! It can be found with the rest of the Weston Worthies by looking at Places / Churches. Click on the place name, Weston-super-Mare, and then scroll down to the bottom of the page or by going directly to the Weston-super-Mare Page It is No 27.
No 26 of the Weston Worthies is now available on the Weston-super-Mare Page If anyone has difficulty finding it please let me know. All the Worthies are with other documents relating to Weston-super-Mare under Places/Churches in the Main Menu. John MAUNDER owned land in Weston before the town was developed including the land on which the Wadham Street Baptist Church was built. Looking forward to the first Zoom Members' Meeting on Thursday 25th Feb at 7.00pm. Details about how to join have been sent to all members.
I have added the profile of Frederick MARTILL to the Weston-super-Mare page. With thanks to Dave Erasmus who helped decipher the 1841 census. I will leave it for you to judge whether Mr MARTILL deserves his place amongst the Worthies. He was quite a character who lived through some interesting times in the development of Weston.
Richard and Betty MUGGLEWORTH were active in Weston during the first half of the 19th Century. Both were Weston Worthies and their profile can be now be seen at the bottom of the Weston-super-Mare Page
