If William Hood, Corn Factor buried 1821 is the same William Hood appointed in 1819 to the committee of the Commercial Rooms on Corn Street, "the headquarters of the corn trade", then their records may reveal something of use.

As a committee member he may also have been a shareholder, so perhaps the register of share certificates & share transfers from 1814 onwards might help identify his heirs in the absence of a will?

Thanks Jomot

There is also a Wills list off the Archive Menu and a Mary Hood, Will in 1821, the year William Hood died and was buried in January.

I have added an image to Reply #6, regarding George Kiddell Hood, whose death notice appears in June 1864 and a William Hood, Merchant was his Father.

The Will of Sarah Hood of Bristol, Widow, 1857, names both:- George Kiddell Hood and James Wasson Hood as her Sons.

So the two HOOD businesses at Bristol listed in the May 1817 image (see Reply #6) must be linked to the same Hoods.


Just wondering now, if the William Hood of Bristol, Corn Factor, who died and was buried in 1821 as a Non-Quaker, was their Grandfather?

The name "Kiddell" appears to be from George Eveleigh Kiddell who died in Bristol in 1842 aged 71 and was co-owner of the Hassan, the Waterloo & others with William Hood & James Wason.  The 1841 census shows his PoB as Ireland.

George Eveleigh Kiddell was the executor of the 1798 estate of Benjamin Kiddell of Charleston, South Carolina.  The estate value was 6,491 17s 11d, although the inventory & a subsequent Bill of Sale makes unsettling reading. 

ADDED: Benjamin & Elizabeth Kiddell were baptising children in the Lewins Mead Presbyterian Chapel, Bristol in the 1770's.

Hi Jomot

Your addition, regarding the baptising of the Kiddell's children in the Presbyterian Chapel is most interesting.

I have read in an old US book, that US Quakers buried a Non-Quaker, who was a Presbyterian Minister.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Scotland
Protestant - Presbyterian

John Calvin (Calvinism)
 --------------

We know the main Hood characters of Bardon Park, Leicestershire, were religious dissenters, along with other Hood families.

 --------------

Led to believe our Hoods originated in Scotland. Our William Hood, born Selby Yorkshire, England 1816, being the firstborn Son and being outlived by Jane Hood, alias Jane Casson Hood, probably means that our Hood family papers are with the Cassons in the USA, as claimed by another enquirer on the internet, who has no contact information.
 --------------

Quakers, the Society of Friends burying Non-Quakers, I believe would likely indicate that the deceased had NO allegiance to the Church of England / Anglican.


But the Parish Church might still memorialise some in death, because some had local status and wealth.

Very interesting finds from Capetown, especially the Fishponds address  :)

William Hood mar. Sarah Beaufey 30 April 1801

I didn't notice this marriage when Claire first posted it, but quite a few Beaufoy's were Quakers so could this be Sarah Beaufoy, wife of William Hood, Merchant, and possible daughter-in-law of William Hood, Corn Factor?

Monthly Meeting of Evesham and Alcester (1648-1778)
Sarah Beaufoy daughter of Chs & Sarah Beaufoy was born at Evesham 2nd of 3rd Month 1776

According to the GRO index her age at death in 1856 was 78, putting her birth at c1778, so its certainly a possibility (indexed as Sarah Beanfoy Wood  ::)  )

Jomot and Capetown ~ Both good finds ;D

That looks interesting ~ a possible Quaker connection again.

I think William Hood merchant ( married to S Beaufay) was possibly the son of John Hood died 1802 ~ Will on Anc*

It does look that way, doesn't it, especially with a son named John Gibbons Hood.  The William Gibbons, Ironmonger appointed as one of the executors also ties in with the apprentice records. 

The Fishponds connection between William Gibbons Hood & William Hood, Corn Factor does hint at a family connection though, don't you think?  Perhaps John & William were brothers?

ADDED: Reading back & looking at the census, Fishponds was also the site of a lunatic asylum, so perhaps not  :-\

I think there must have been a history of mental health problems in the family, hence the Fishponds connection. William the corn factor obviously lived at Broadweir in the city and the possible Quaker origins of his wife Sarah, may be the reason for the burial. I wonder if mental health issues account for the lack of a will for William?
