Selina HARES born in Shipham in about 1824 married Henry HASE in Shipham in 1846. She was Henry's first wife and she died in childbirth in Axbridge in 1856. I believe her parents were William HARES and Sophia STOCK - I've not found a marriage for them.

Hi Pat. A Happy New Year to you. I\'ve looked at this a few times now and, like you, got nowhere. I think I know the answer to this, but why do you think that Sophia's maiden name was Stock? Dave Erasmus
Hi Dave, Wishing you a Happy New Year as well! Years ago when I first came across this problem I found on the 1841 census that a Jesse HARES was born to them after civil registration - I sent for his birth certificate - mother's maiden name given as STOCK. Since then I've been able to look at the GRO Index and all the children after him show the same mother's maiden name. All the children were baptised as children of William and Sophia HARES - including the unregistered ones.

David Hares' great-grandfather (Samuel Hare[s] 1796-1871, married the delightfully named Flower Tripp) was from Shipham, although David\'s family lived in east Bristol. Auntie Cath returned to Weston after Uncle Dave's death, and died in 1978.
It was interesting to see the name Flower Tripp (1793-1867) who married Samuel Hares as she is my 1st cousin 5x. Their descendants are on my family tree on Ancestry as I have DNA Match linked to them. David Hares and Catherine Amy Pettie are also on the tree. Plus 4 William Hares but have not currently looked at their descendants. My Husband also has Hares Family on his tree, but from Compton Bishop, who emigrated to USA and married into Evans/Masters family in Onondaga, New York.
