William Carver Talbot (1856 - 1933) and family 1933 burial record at Croscombe Wm Talbot - in the new ground 8th rank 5th grave from wall south side of last path on his 2nd wife* aged 77 grave full'. * note 2nd wife was Emily Talbot, his third wife Annie survived him and was buried - 8th rank 3rd grave aged 81 years. He worked in the stone quarries at Croscombe. He used to play the accordian and entertain the regulars in the local pub near the Village Cross in Croscombe. He was injured working in a local quarry and was as a result partly blind (in one eye). He received a pension due to the injury. Grandson Bert Vincent (aged 89 in 2009) remembers collecting water for him when he lived at a house in 'The Drains' in Croscombe (near the Church but now apparently demolished) and getting a 'copper' for doing so.

Defendant did not appear. Complainant stated that on the day in question he was crossing Marshfield when he saw the defendant in another field searching the hedges with a lurcher dog. Witness went to defendant and asked him what he was doing there. He replied that he did not know he was doing any harm. There was no footpath through the field in question. This being the second offence the defendant was fined 10s and costs. Western Gazette 23rd March 1883 William Talbot of Croscombe; Albert and Arthur Macey and Frank Hiscox of Stoke Lane were summoned by John Brown, gamekeeper to Captain Knatchbull, for trespassing on lands in the occupation of Mr William Osborn, in search of conies on 11th inst. The evidence of the complainant was to the effect that he watched the defendants beating the hedges in several fields. Finding no game they crossed the road and went into the field in question, where they searched two hedges. Complainant stated that there were hares in this field, but defendants did not start any. After watching defendants for some time, complainant went up and informed them he should summon them. They were each fined 2s 6d and 7s costs. Western Daily Press 8th April 1878 Shepton Mallet William Talbot of Croscombe was 10s and costs for trespassing in seach of conies in Ham Wood. Western Gazette 1st February 1878 Trespass in pursuit of game - William Talbot and Henry Young, labourers of Croscombe, were summoned for trespassing in a field called "Plump Close" in the occupation of Mr Hoskins, on 19th instant, having a dog with them, which was searching in the bushes. PC Lanham proved the case. Defendants said they were on the road to Shepton when the dog got over in the bushes, and as it would not come when called they got over to it. A gamekeeper stated he had cautioned Talbot before. Fined 5s and costs 8s each. William's third, and final, wife was an Annie Smith who was originally from London. She had a daughter from a previous marriage who lived in Chingford in the 1930's. * Son Edward George Talbot (Newport) born in 1904 was born out of wedlock and was christened with his mother's name of Newport. However the 1911 census confirms he was the son of William Talbot and Emily. Emily did have two daughters prior to Edward George - Violet and Daisy - both born in 1902 and both to another father as confirmed by the 1911 census stating that, unlike Edward, they were his stepdaughters and not daughters (see under Newport). Edward George Talbot became a quarryman like his father and in 1921 is recorded in the Western Daily Press as working at Dulcote quarry, aged 17, and witnessing the death of a colleague, Albert Young, after a rock fall. Albert's skull was crushed. Hebe Florence Talbot (my nan) was adopted by Bert Vincent (father Joseph) and Cordelia Maggie (nee Talbot) eldest sister in about 1919/20 they were married Croscombe 1919, Bert (or Alb as he was know) was a prisoner of war in World War 1 having been captured at Paschendale. He later worked with my grandfather, Harry Horler, at Sharcombe Farm, Dinder as a labourer/woodsman. Arthur William Talbot emigrated to USA before 1907 landing at Ellis Island, New York Lived in Illinois in and around Granite City for about 65 years, was a member of the United Methodist Church and for 47 years was a senior engineer with the American car and foundry industry William's sons in World War One Roll of Honour, First World War, Croscombe Church, Somerset Private F Talbot, 1381, D Coy, Ist Mon Reg - wounded - probably Frederick Talbot born 1892 Bugler C A Talbot, 799037, CEF - probably Charles Albert Talbot born 1897 Certificate of marriage 29th July 1906, St Mary's church, Croscombe, Somerset William Carver Talbot, 50 years, widower, quarryman, residence - Croscombe, father - Frederick Talbot, deceased Emily Jane Newport, 24 years, spinster, residence - Croscombe, father - James Newport, labourer Signed by William and Emily, witnessed by FW Webber and Ellen Talbot, by banns and WC Booth, incumbent of Wabana Newfoundland 1898 burial of 'Mary wife of William Talbot' at Croscombe Frederick Talbot (1830-1889) 1889 burial at Croscombe 14/10/1889 - buried Frederick Talbot in the new ground the north side of David Foxwell * * DF was buried 'the north side of the chalker (?)

This Cordelia Carver was Ann Carver's cousin and was 14 when Ann was 16. one can probably guess that Ann and Cordelia were friends and Ann's use of her name for her first and second daughters is a touching memorial as is William's later use of the name. 1863 burial at Croscombe 20/2/1863 - buried Frederick Talbot's child in the Marshman ground north west corner Frederick Talbot recorded as a labourer on baptism records of twin daughters Martha and Mary 1827.

The OOP paid for Edward's coffin and burial in Jun 1813 – money to Betty. Betty and Eleanor were sisters and occur together again in Mar 1818 when the OOP paid them relief. In 1841 they lived at No. 1 Sealy's Row but in 1851 they lived at No. 3. Both ladies lived 'under Parish Relief'. Ellen died in 1854 and Betty probably also died in 1854 (Sep Q 5c/334 Wells) though a namesake died in 1860.

Butleigh court rolls in 1693 refer to Edward Talbot the elder (of course suggesting a younger Edward who I think died 1727) and William in this line also had a son Edward. William can't have been the younger Edward's son but the dates suggest he was a brother. The other senior male Talbot at the time buried and referred to in the Court Rolls at the time was a Henry Talbot but this name was not used by William for any of his children.

However I find no evidence of a connection between the two families. Butleigh registers start 1578, but there is a big gap 1677 to 1714.

Dated 21/2/1766. Bondsman for Eleanor is Gabriel Close of Baltonsborough, yeoman. * Eleanor was not baptised Baltonsborough, Butleigh or Barton St David. * Note - I previously thought that Eleanor was the daughter of Thomas Close (who married Catherine Miller 1734) however the fact that Gabriel Close (who was having children at Baltonsborough 1765 onwards in Baltonsborough) was Eleanor's bondsman in her marriage licence of 1766 shows a close and probably a family connection. I believe that Gabriel was the son of John and Margaret Close (baptised 1740) and therefore probably Eleanor's older brother. John Close who married before 1740 and Thomas Close who married 1734 were brothers and both sons of George and Helen Close. Eleanor's brother Gabriel was a farmer and overseer of the poor law in Baltonsborough in the late 18th century, therefore a reputable bondsman. John Close (1715-1775) Somerset Records Office - D\P\balt/23/11 13/6/1770 - Petition from Baltonsborough Jury of Sewers. "Mr John Close their foreman heard by the Commissioners of the Eastern Division sitting at Wells and Order of the Court." Children of John and Margaret Close at Baltonsborough - 1737 John (base born), 1740 Gabriel, 1742 Hester ? * * ? This is not a clear record and it could be Hester, maybe even Eleanor with an El written close together. But this is a very possible match to Eleanor.

Consideration: marriage of 1) and Mary daughter of Robert Burgoyne, and £2000 from Robert Burgoyne. * note that there is no specific reference here to Thomas Connock's location. There is a confusing gap to George Burgoyne of Ilfracombe but I do not believe that Thomas is also of Ilfracombe but rather that is associated just with George as it refers to 'gentleman' and not 'gentlemen' and it is highly unlikely that both these men lived in Ilfracombe which is a place that has no connection with and is a long way from the Connock lands in Cornwall. Whilst Mr George Burgoyne is listed in a parish return from Ilfracombe in 1678, Thomas Connock is not listed there and I have found no indication of a Thomas Connock, who would have been a gentleman, living in Devon in the late 17th century.

Lambert’s successor, Thomas Connock, served variously as clerk, minister, and rector by 1653* until 1706. * the first reference I can find to Thomas in any capacity is as Rector of North Barrow in the parish register and is 1653. 1664/5 Dwelly's Hearth Tax Returns North Barrow - Thomas Connocke el, iij Ev £3 6s National Archives Connock Marshall papers CM/652 1 May 1655 Contents: Lease for 99 years or 3 lives ((2), John Connock jnr. & brother Thos.); cons. surrender & £70; rent 8s. 4d.; heriot 5s. 8d.

Regarding the connection below, possible but not proven 1) Connection between Cornish Connocks and Somerset - Richard Connock MP (1560-1620) and son of John of Liskeard lived for some time at Lillesdon, North Curry near Taunton in Somerset. 2) Thomas Connock would probably have have come from a family of means, like gentry to have become a religious minister and for his son to be formally educated at Oxford. The Cornish Connock family are the only 17th century family that I can find that appear to fit the bill and it is an unusual family name. 3) Name connections to previous generations - his son Thomas had a child called Nicholas and he had a child called John 4) The Thomas mentioned in the wills and settlements of his grandfather and father of 1643 and 1641 would fit with Thomas of North Barrow in Somerset as he was born before 1633. Brother John, who became an MP was born in 1631 and sister Loverday was baptised at St Cleer in 1634. 5) Thomas' great x 2 uncle Richard Connock MP was a religious man, see below, and had possible puritan leanings. There is evidence from the fact that Thomas survived the period of the Commonwealth as well as the Restoration that he was acceptable to both the 'puritans' and the later Church establishment. 6) There is no evidence of Thomas, grandson of John Connock mentioned in his will, settling elsewhere in Cornwall. Although a Thomas Connock of Kelly in Cornwall did leave a will in 1693. 7) Thomas would have been only about 22 years old in 1653, however looking at a similar person Arthur Heron of Bardswell - he was born about 1605 in Devon and gained his degree in 1626 aged 21 and masters in 1629 aged 24. Arthur became a rector in Suffold in 1631 aged 26. This isn't a huge gap, particularly if Thomas did not progress to a masters degree, like his son. 8) In 1653 Thomas spelt his name ending with an 'e'. Many wills of the Tregonwey family of Cornwall also record their name with an 'e' such as Richard's in 1620. 9) See the 'note' under 'alumni oxoniesis' under Thomas born 1660. 10) 1641 Protestation Return of St Cleer in Cornwall lists only John Connock Esq of the family. There is no Thomas. The main concern about this link is the lack of firm evidence and the fact that in 1653 Thomas would have been 20/21 rather young, but not too young, to be a Rector. There was also a Thomas son of John Connocks baptised at nearby Marston Magna in Somerset in 1623. Thomas of Barrow did have a son named John but there is no evidence that this Connock family had the eduction and means to have a son who would become a clerk and Rector.

After the dissolution of the monasteries he acquired the manor of Hagland, which consisted mainly of town property in Liskeard, and purchased other properties, including Treworgey and Penquite in St. Cleer. He became a member of parliament and built a house in Liskeard, which still survives. He died in 1581, during his fourth term as mayor of the borough. His son moved to Treworgey, which remained the seat of the family thenceforth.

He was an MP and was auditor of the Duchy of Cornwall and manager of Prince Henry's revenues (Henry, Prince of Wales and son of King James I). On 2 September 1611 he had been a guest with John Donne and others at 'a philosophical feast' at Brasenose College. In 1617 James gave Connock a gift of £1,000. His will of 1619 suggests (according to the book 'faction and faith; politics and religion in the Cornish gentry before the civil war by Anne Duffin) suggests that he had puritan friends and relatives. He left bibles to his wife and religious pictures to the Wise family of Sydenham and to his great nephew Richard Vivian, esq, who seems to have held puritan beliefs. In 1612 Richard was one of numerous nobles and gentlemen to sign the 3rd Virginia Charter, a royal charter establishing trading interests in the American colony. In his will he also refers to Richard and Ann the children of his nephew George and Nicholas the son of his nephew John. John married Joan daughter of William Roe (or Rowe) of Landrake in Cornwall.

Choice of three John Cross' born about the right time 1734 to James and Elizabeth, this fits best because John and Mary had children called James and Elizabeth and in 1734 he would have been 'the younger' (see marriage below) 1732 to John and Modesty, however not the youngest John and John and Mary never had a child called Modesty 1725 to Robert and Grace, whilst John and Mary had children called Robert and Grace, this is clearly the elder John and must be the one married in 1760 to Mary Read James Cross (1706-1779) 1779 will of James Cross I James Cross of Cucklington in the county of Somersetshire yeoman considering the uncertainty of the mortal life and being of sound and perfect mind and memory blessed be almighty God for the same do make and and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following that is to say first I give and bequeath to my beloved wife Elizabeth if she survives me the use of all the household linen and the interest of all my read money chattels and likewise give and bequeath to my beloved wife Elizabeth Cross the rents and profits arising yearly from all that my messuage and estate called Babwell in the parish of Cucklington in the County of Somersetshire and the rents and profits of all that my messuage and garden called Stonerode in the parish and County aforesaid to enjoy all the above named interest rents and profits during her natural life to be paid to her by my executors yearly or half yearly as occasion shall require but if through sickness or any other misfortune the interest rents and profits above mentioned should not prove to be sufficient maintenance for my beloved maintenance for my beloved wife Elizabeth Cross then my will is that my executors shall pay her such sum and sums of money out of all the substance above at different times as occasion shall require and after the decease of my beloved wife Elizabeth Cross then my will and desire is that all my goods chattels ready money messuages lands copyhold and freehold that is left unexpended after the decease of my beloved wife Elizabeth Cross and after all debts funeral and executors expenses be paid be equally divided in eight even parts between my sons and daughters or their heirs lawfully begotten as soon as they shall attain the age of twenty one years one eighth part to be divided between the children of my son James Cross lawfully begotten as soon as they shall attain the age of twenty one years one eighth part to my son James Cross which eighth part is the house and garden at Stonerode but if the house and garden at Stonerode when valued should not prove an even eighth part then my will is that these shall be so much money added to it as will make it an even eighth part on eighth part to my son John Cross one eighth part to my son Joseph Cross of Cliffords Inn London one eighth part to my daughter Ann Frampton wife to Charles Frampton of Ringwood Hampshire one eighth part to my daughter Elizabeth Heath wife to John Heath of St Thomas Southwark London victualler one eighth part to my daughter Mary Moore wife of Robert Moore of Blandford Dorset miller and one eighth part to my daughter Hannah Cross of Shaftesbury Dorsetshire but if either of my sons or daughters should depart this life having no heir lawfully begotten then I give such part or parts equally between such of my children as shall then be living and so in proportion to the heirs lawfully begotten of my sons or daughters as or then deceased as soon as they shall attain the age of twenty one years and thereby appoint my son Joseph Cross of Cliffords Inn London executor and my daughter Hannah Cross of Shaftesbury Dorset executrix of this my last will and testament and my will is that their expenses be allowed them for executing the same hereby revoking for all my wills by me made.

Presumably this is the John Cross junior son of John Crosse who left a will in 1650 who is referred to in the 1641 Poll Tax as paying £10, whilst his father is John Crosse senior. I have not yet found the baptism of William Cross which would be 1636-1656 but the chances are that as William was married in 1674 that he was born after 1636 and is probably the son of Robert rather than brother John.

Children of Laurence and Mary Harding at Marnhull - 1752 John, 1755 Jenny, 1762 Ann (Cucklington) (m 1789 James Forward). Somerset History Centre DD\PH/96 - 1753 - 1779 Some of the leases define in which part or parts of the manor the properties were and the numbers involved have been noted under each bundle. Tenants: … Bowles, Cross, Dalton, Dyke, Follett, Gatehouse, Harding, Knight, Leir, Read (all of Cucklington), 1751 marriage - neither Lawrence or Mary were buried at Marnhull suggesting they moved elsewhere and the date fits perfectly with Laurence and Mary who had Ann in 1762. Marnhull parish is also not far from Cucklington. And another connection is that the Laurence who married in 1751 had a mother called Ann. 1751 marriage says both 'of this parish'. Laurence Harding (1701-1772) 1772 will of Lawrence Harden (Harding) of Marnhull, Dorset. Bequeths "to beloved wife Ann my two houses and my goods and chattels and money dowring for her life for herself …" To son Peter, Hannams house to be and his heirs for ever only, he is to pay his brother John ten shillings a year for ten years… To daughter Mabel "my house I now live in to her and her heirs for ever only … she is to pay her sister Elizabeth Curles ten shillings a year for ten years after she is possessed of it. Son Peter and daughter Mabel get the rest of his goods and chattels and money other than that received by Ann and they are made executors to his will. Made 2nd March 1772, signed with his seal. Proved 1772. Note that the will of Lawrence Harden (Harding) of 1772 makes no reference to the children of his deceased son Laurence who died in 1766. Also it confirms that one of his children was called Mabel which indicates a link to the his mother Mabel and therefore the link between the Hardings of Marnhull and those of Cucklington because Laurence Harding of Cucklington married Mabel Young of North Cheriton in 1698. Children of Laurence and Ann Harding at Marnhull - 1726 Laurence (m 1751 Mary George), 1729 Elizabeth (m 1755 James Curles), 1731 John, 1733 Peter (m 1758 Elizabeth Warren), 1734 Mabel, 1737 Alice (m 1761 George Read). 1726 is the first Harding reference in Marnhull suggesting the family did indeed come from elsewhere.

Laurence * Henry was the first Harding in Cucklington and was the only one having children at the right time in the parish to be the father of Laurence. But no baptism has yet been found and his possible son Laurence did not use the name Henry or Margery for his children.

Taken by her executor Henry Harding of Cucklington. Signed by Henry Harding with his seal. Note - I think that Alice above was Henry's mother. She was buried as a widow 1671 and her husband Thomas 1667. They are both described as being 'of Wyndlam' or Windlane' Henry in 1664 on the birth of his first child Henry is also described as being 'of Windlam'. Also Henry had a son called Thomas. There was another Thomas having children in 1663 and 1665. I think this Thomas is more likely to be Henry's brother. Rather than the Thomas who died 1667. In 1648 a Mariam Willis married at Gillingham and she is described as being a relation to 'Thomas Harden of Winburn' again suggesting that this Thomas was the generation before Henry who married 1664. Thomas Harding junior married Elizabeth Bealing in about 1665 in, I think, Silton (according to IGI). There is also a Robert Harding having children in Gillingham 1650 and 1662, he was 'of of Littlemarsh'. 1664/5 Hearth Tax Returns No Hardings in Cucklington.

Instead Mary I think that almost certainly came from the Hickes family of that time in neighbouring Dinder and on her marriage her name is spelt with the same 'e' in Hickes of Dinder and formerly of Wiltshire. If, as seems probable, Mary was from the Hickes family of Dinder, then this seems to link her to Mary who was the granddaughter of Jeffrey Hickes through his son Thomas. This Mary was baptised in Steeple Ashton in Wiltshire in 1619, but was not buried or married there and so very probably is the one that ended up in Somerset and near her grandfather's residence, marrying Richard Phillips in neighbouring Croscombe in 1638. The Phillips family also had branches in Dinder.

Note that the name Langley (or Langlie) before 1710 appears to have been transcribed as Lankey in the parish registers as was the 1709 baptism of Martha above. However the fact that this is the same family is shown in another family William and Mary Langly is recorded as Lankey in 1708 and Langley in 1720.

Ann Leonard did not marry Stephen Clifford until November 1744 and there is no proof that Alice was his daughter. However on balance of probabilities I have assumed that this is the case because the marriage took place within a reasonable period after that baptism and there is no record of Stephen having been charged via the poor guardians for Alice's child, therefore the father was probably supporting her and her child. It is also the case that Stephen's grandmother was called Alice and there is no record at the moment of an Alice name on the Leonard side of the family. However there remains some doubt about the Clifford fatherhood as he did not marry Ann until after the birth and baptism rather than doing so beforehand. Alice's marriage record gives no clues and she and her husband did not use the name Stephen for any of their children. They did however use the name Sarah which is also the name of Stephen's mother and this also suggests that Alice was Stephen's daughter.

In 1817 William Marshman (James' son) was buried at Croscombe and the register records that he 'destroyed himself in a fit of insanity'. Thomas Marshman coal merchant of Croscombe, son of John and Caroline and grandson of Joseph born 1784, spent some time at Broadmoor Lunatic Asylum. In 1864 he was convincted of trying to kill Stephen Plenty at Croscombe and was acquitted on grounds of insanity. William and Thomas were distant cousins, it is difficult to avoid the theory that there may be some connection here with mental health in this family. Children of James and Alice Marshman at Pottern - 1768 William (m 1791 Croscombe, Mary Stone, bu 1817), 1770 James (m 1792 Croscombe, Sarah Hanham), 1777 Thomas (m 1798 Croscombe, Sarah Hanham), 1781 Sarah, 1784 Joseph (m Hannah Harrick, died Croscombe aft 1841) 1767 marriage at Market Lavington - James Marshman of Pottern and Alice Leonard * choice of two families of two brothers 1) James son of James Marshman senior at Pottern children with first wife Sarah (bu 19/4/1748 Pottern) - 1733 Judith, 1736 Elizabeth, 1740 daughter, 1742 Mary, 1746 Eliner with second wife Sarah Glass (m 1749) - ?

James (m 1767 Market Lavington, Alice Leonard), 1748 Rebecca, 1754 Ann, 1762 William (aged 10 years). ? - son's name is illegible in the parish record, very possibly James, aged 4 as it is the only record that fits. Note - only father's name mentioned on baptisms 1740 marriage of John Marshman and Jane Crook at Melksham both of that parish near Pottern and John may have been working there at that time? The date fits with the subsequent family of John Marshman of Pottern, his marriage never occurred in Pottern, Devizes, Rowde or Keevil and whilst they did not use the name Jane for any of their children it fits with the burial of a Jane Marshman in 1785.

According to the census and burial records Jane was born about 1800 there are two possible candidates baptised 1805 to William and Rebecca at Croscombe baptised 1803 to James and Mary at Shepton Mallet It appears that it is William and Rebecca because prior to the 1805 baptism at Croscombe of Jane, their only child there, they baptised a child at Doulting, the parish in which the hamlet of Prestleigh is located. Rebecca also died in Croscombe, where Jane settled and had a family with James Talbot. This is too much of a coincidence, although Jane's age on burial does not precisely match up exactly with an 1805 birth date suggesting her age on burial may not have been accurate, like her husband James. William Martin (1760-1812) Children of William and Rebecca Martin at Croscombe - 1805 Jane (m Bristol, James Talbot). Children of William and Rebecca Martin at Doulting - 1793 Thomas (m 1815 Croscombe, Sarah Stone & 1830 Mary Ann Marsh), 1798 Rebecca (bu 1799), 1800 Rebecca (bu 1805 Croscombe, age 6). * son Thomas became a cordwainer in Croscombe. He had a daughter called Rebecca in 1818 and son William in 1821 at Croscombe. Thomas was buried 1846 at Croscombe, aged 54, "killed by a blow from a stone at the County Lunatic Asylum" (was he a patient?). Children of William and Rebecca Martin at Pylle - 1791 John. Children of William and Rebecca Martin at East Pennard - 1789 Sarah John Martin (1731-1770) Children of John and Rose Martin at East Pennard - 1757 John, 1760 William (m 1784 East Pennard, Rebecca Blanford), 1763 Osman 1756 marriage at East Pennard John Martin , labourer Rose Linthorn Witnessed - John Pippen, Teller Mitchel Osman Martin (bf 1707-1740) Children of Osman (mont) and Elizabeth Martin at Stoke St Gregory - 1725 Osman, 1731 John (m 1756 Rose Linthorn), 1734 Mary Osman Martin may have been baptised at Fovant in Wiltshire. There is no trace of a baptism or marriage in Somerset yet there is an Osmund Martin senior and junior in the 1642 Protestation Return and this may be too much of a coincidence given this unusual name. 1705 Osmund son of Osmund Marin baptised at Fovant Wiltshire wills Will P2/M/979 Administration bond, inventory P2/M/833 Inventory, will P2/M/798 1731 Martin, Matthew 1713 Martin, Osmund 1705 Martin, Osmond, senior Yeoman Yeoman Yeoman Fovant Fovant Fovant Meaker family ?

But given he refers to two other sisters (? Moncke and Elizabeth Sanger) and no sons or daughters or wife it suggests the former.

By 1605 the estate had passed to Andrew Mortimer (will proved 1611), who devised what was called Stock manor to his wife Lucy for life and to his nephews Andrew Mortimer and Anthony Mortimer, rector of Binegar (Som.). Andrew and Anthony may have sold that estate to Alexander Staples, on whose death in 1633 it passed from him to his son Samuel (fl. 1685). From the earlier 15th century land at Stockley apparently descended as part of the estate which came to be called the manor of Stock and Stockley. Andrew Mortimer (will proved 1611), who held that estate, devised what was called Stockley manor to his father George and brother Ambrose. In 1633 Ambrose sold the estate at Stockley, apparently no more than the farm later called Scott's, to Alexander Staples.

This suggests that she may sadly have been unable to have been supported by her parents who still had eight children at home. However within two years she met and then married to William Talbot of Croscombe who then supported her and her children. 1902 - Emily Jane had two children out of wedlock with an unknown father - Violet and Daisy. The twins were both born at Frome Workhouse. Emily's occupation at the time is 'housemaid'. Both Violet and Daisy are still alive aged 9 in the 1911 census after Emily had married William Talbot of Croscombe (with whom she had one son out of wedlock in 1906). Violet and Daisy would both have been my nan's half-sisters and apparently stayed close to the Talbot and Vincent families in later life.. I believe that Daisy Newport married in 1923 in Shepton Mallet to a Mr Jeffrey, she died in Evercreech. Violet Newport may have married a Mr Wilkins in Bristol in 1931 and died in Bristol.

Sec., to deliver the prizes which he did as under First premium (ten competitors) - 1st prize of £2 10s to James Newport of West Pennard for 2,375 attendances at school of his five children …. Western Gazette 6th December 1887 Glastonbury Annual Great Market The annual great market was held on Monday. There was a very large number of visitors, but the day was wretchedly cold and wet. The supply of stock of all classes was small, and the number of Christmas beasts was limited. For any really good choice and samples there was a ready sale, but inferior were a drag in the market and for even middling qualities there was but little demand ... At one o'clock the Fair Committee met in the assembly rooms for the purpose of distributing the premiums gained during the year as a reward for skill and as an encouragement to industry and good behaviour among agricultural labourers and domestic servants.... The Chairman said he should like to suggest that the Committee might revise the present prize scheme, which was instituted a good many years ago, before compulsory education came in. It now seemed to him that as people were fined for not sending their children to school it was somewhat of an anomaly to give them prizes for sending them. This , he thought, might be met by giving prizes to the parents who passed out to get their own living at a certain age the most children... The Secretary (Mr Bulleid) said the competitions had been very good indeed and the number of attendances of the children was greatly in excess of any preceding year. (Applause). The Chairman then proceeded to distribute the prizes as below :First premium (nine competitors) - 1st prize of £2 10s to Jas. Newport of West Pennard for 2,110 attendances at school by his four children … Western Gazette 28th September 1883 Assaults - Jacob Walker, labourer, was summoned for assaulting Henry Lester, at West Pennard, on the 31st Aug. Complainant stated that on the afternoon in question he went into the Red Lion Inn, West Pennard, and saw defendant there. They has a few words, and defendant struck complainant in the face and challenged him to fight. Cross-examined: he admitted having threatened to poke defendant's eye out with his finger. Thomas Witcombe, labourer, who was present in the Inn, deposed to seeing defendant "smooge" his hand over Lester's face. Did not hear defendant say he would poke Walker's eye out. James Newport, labourer, for the defence, swore that Lester began the row, and provoked Walker. The bench dismissed the case. Note - Walker was however fined £1 for failing to quit the pub when required on 31st August and also £5 and bound to keep the peace for 6 months for fighting with another person on 13th September. Walker was described by one witness as 'the terror of the whole village'!

However as his son was John (another child Robert bapt 1612) it is a good probability that he was the son of one of the John Perry's having children in North Cadbury in the late 16th century. He is unlikely to be the son of John Perry junior who was having children 1596 + (after his marriage with Elizabeth Baker). John Perry could be one of three John's (possibly all separate and having children at the right time 1594 John married Edith Meare widow (Edith died 1595 so probably unlikely) 1589 John married Elizabeth Pytman 1575 John married Christian Baker former died 1591 and latter 1597 - probably too early a marriage to fit I have therefore assumed that he is the son of the 2nd marriage in 1589 This line may not be 100% accurate at earlier generations but it is clear that whatever line one follows back the Perry's of North Cadbury go back in North Cadbury further than 1560 as there are plenty of families in the parish in the late 16th century when registers began.

A Richard Phillips was baptised and buried 1595 indicating that the name was connected to that family. On balance of probabilities and as Richard used the names William and Mary for his children I believe that Richard was born 1612-1620 and was a son of William and Mary. * 6/10/1602 Thomas Phillips (bu 30/6/1653) and Margaret Stevens (bu 27/2/1642) * Note - there was a Phillips family in neighbouring Dinder at the time as well but the parish registers do not date back this far. William Phillips (1588-1647) A William Phillips married Eme Down at Croscombe in 1589 however that is probably not a second marriage of the William that married Alice as there is no burial of an Alice Phillips between 1583 and 1589 and the baptisms after 1590 appear to refer to a William Phillips 'the lesser?' or younger which may well be a younger brother of William senior.

A second house, then known as Low Ham Court and formerly occupied by the Walton family, may have been the capital messuage of the other manor. William Balche, farmer of the demesne in 1515, held 252 a. of which 188 a. was scattered in the two arable fields and most of the rest was inclosed grassland. He or a son of the same name was described as a gentleman in 1555; … Of similar status were members of the Walton family: John Walton (d. 1540-1) was occupier of a ½-virgate freehold in High Ham manor in 1515, auditor of Glastonbury abbey, debtor to the abbot of Glastonbury in 1539; John's brother William was auditor of Glastonbury abbey in 1535, bailiff of Whitley hundred in 1538-9, and coroner in 1555; and John's son Thomas (d. 1576) was purchaser of Shapwick manor in 1557 and with William Balche the two most residents in the parish in 1569. The Waltons, who were related by marriage to the Hexts (see above) and were said to have lived in a house called Low Ham Court, were still in the parish in 1666. William Walton (bf 1472-aft 1492) Shapwick Manor The manor passed to the Crown on the dissolution of Glastonbury, and in 1553, with the manors of Moorlinch and Ashcott, and Whitley hundred, was granted in fee by the Crown to Sir William Petre. All were sold back to the Crown in the following year, and were leased to William Walton, his wife Elizabeth, and their son Richard. William, or another of the same name, had been lessee of the demesnes under Glastonbury abbey since the time of Abbot John Selwood (d. 1492). Walton and Jerome Halley were granted the estate in fee in 1554 and were immediately licensed to convey it to Sir Thomas Dyer and Thomas Walton, another son of William Walton. Thomas Walton seems to have retained possession until his death in 1576 although his step-brother Richard Walton had occupied the capital messuage and probably the demesne farm by 1557 and was still there in 1569. Thomas Walton was followed in succession by his son, also Thomas (d. 1622), who by 1618 had yielded possession to trustees to pay his debts. In 1622 Thomas's son Francis and two of the trustees conveyed the manor to Abraham Burrell, and Burrell conveyed it in 1640 to Sir Samuel Rolle, Hugh Fortescue, and Henry Rolle. Few details of agriculture are available from the later 14th century until 1515 when the Shapwick demesne farm was divided. Nearly 400 a. in closes had been let before 1492 to William Walton and included a close described as sheep pasture; 320 a., all former demesne, was let apparently from 1515 at pleasure to 35 tenants; and a further 84 a. was let in small parcels as part of customary tenancies.

Richard Wheddon born before 1735, I cannot find his baptism at High Ham however based on a prior burial of a more senior Richard Wheddon in 1774 I have assumed this line as I think there is a good probability that Richard descends from the Wheadons of long descent in High Ham.

It is unlikely that any of this would have been referred to as 'John Willy the elder' in the indenture below.
