Dear Amondg
Many thanks for the last information re Elizabeth Chitty etc.
Brilliant - explains a great deal.
Will post separate question re Tallemachs and Longs in same tomb.

Can anyone help solve the mystery of why John Tallemach (son of Richard, brother of Richard, died 1800), his brother William (died 1806) and his daughter Eleanor Clark Tallemach (died 1800) are buried in the same tomb as John Long (1768-1834) and his first wife Phillipa (died 1834) and second wife Elizabeth Allaway in the churchyard of St.Peter's Petersham.
In a footnote in the parish record for the burial of John Tallemach it states he was buried in the tomb of the Tallemach family.
On the outside of the tomb there is an inscription 'This tomb belongs to John Long,1826'.
It is highly unusual according to the parish archivist for unrelated families to be buried together in the same tomb.
The only link I can find between the two families is both Johns were carpenters and John Tallemach rented for a while a property (carpenter's shop) from Mrs.Long.
With thanks from
