BURTON, Henry - Nettlecombe and/or Old Cleeve
« on: Friday 15 July 16 10:28 BST (UK) »
Hi

One of my latest brick walls is Henry Burton.  All I have so far from the usual online resources and especially the Old Cleeve Parish Records is the following:

married Grace WATTS on 16 Nov 1761 at St. Andrews, Old Cleeve.

I believe Grace was born about 1733 in Nettlecombe to Thomas Watts and Mary Brownson (or Brownfern on some sites).

Their 3 kids that I have traced between 1762 and 1772 were born either Old Cleeve or Nettlecombe.

My brickwall is that Henry does not appear in any of the parish records for those two villages or any of the other surrounding villages as far as I can tell.

Can anyone help with some possible candidates?

Thanks in advance.

There's a burial for a Henry Burton in Old Cleeve in 1769 - transcriber notes say "senior" - your Henry's father?

Hi

Possibly, but until I can establish birth/bapt details for the Henry in my post I don't  really know.

Thanks for looking though.
