Dorset / Emily Evans nee Foot and husband Frank
« on: Wednesday 24 January 18 20:48 GMT (UK)  »
Emily was born 27.9.1880 in Up Cerne, Dorset and married Frank Evans on the 21.8.1897 (place not known)

For a time they lived in Pontypool before moving to Branksome.

I understand they had 8 children, Alice, George, Rose, Arthur, Wilfred and Frank.

Apart from the above and details of Emily's parents and siblings , I know nothing of their occupations or anything else about her or  Frank.

Any information would be greatfully received.

Many thanks

Rose Foot was born 1.4.1879 in Up Cerne, Dorset. She married Ernest George Stone, who worked on the railways and they lived in Basingstoke. Rose died on the 8.3.1910.

All I know of Rose is the above apart from knowledge about her siblings and parents.
Any info regarding where she lived, if she worked and children details etc would be most helpful.

Many thanks


Also any additional details regarding Ernest would be helpful as it might give a clue as to how they got together.

Somerset / Thomas Richard Tolley of Meare
« on: Sunday 21 January 18 11:56 GMT (UK)  »
Dick Tolley married Frances Foot in 1918. For a time they ran Stileway Farm in Meare nr Glastonbury. Unfortunately he had money troubles and he tried on more than one occasion to take his life. A newspaper advert in Jan 1937 has him as the owner, but a month later it was his wife selling. He died on the 13.2.1937. The family understand that he shot himself in the cowstall. I have been unable to trace a report of his death which would surely have been reported.  Any help regarding Dick and his family and previous background would be very helpful.

Many thanks  Mark

Dorset / Cottage Up Cerne Wood, Up Cerne
« on: Thursday 18 January 18 16:10 GMT (UK)  »
My gt gt grandfather George Foot was woodman/keeper at Up Cerne. He died in 1923 and lived in the cottage in the wood. The cottage was demolished with several other homes circa 1960's by the owner of the estate. I have never seen an old photo of the cottage and hope that as it was near a footpath and as it was around after his death for a number of years, then someone may know of a picture. There was a well next to the house and adders could be a nuisance. A newspaper cutting advises that he killed 6 on one day.  George had 15 children and 3 wives and any contact with descendants of those families may be mutually beneficial to our research.


Somerset / Tucker and Forward Solicitors of Chard
« on: Tuesday 16 January 18 19:37 GMT (UK)  »
I wonder if there are records of the address of the firm Tucker and Forward of Chard and when they closed or ideally who and when took them over. I have left search details for Charles Higgins b 1863 Crewkerne who lived at Tatwoth with his family and witnessed a will as sols clerk in Jul 1883 and quickly afterwards has disappeared, possibly drowned.

Many thanks Mark

Somerset / John Seaward Harboust business in Chard
« on: Tuesday 16 January 18 09:40 GMT (UK)  »
For a period between the years 1870-1885 my relation worked in Chard, Somerset as a apprentice to John Seaward Harboust. The newspaper article states Mr Harboust was respected in the district but I can not find him or his business. Any information would be greatly received.

Somerset / Elisa Ann Higgins
« on: Friday 12 January 18 23:11 GMT (UK)  »
Elisa Ann Higgins was known as Annie. All I know about her was that she was born in Tatworth near Chard, Som and that she was a schoolteacher at Tatworth before becoming a lady's Maid. She did not marry. It would be nice to discover anything else about her as I can discuss with my father who had dementia but at times has good recall.Many thanks Mark
