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?

Sarah was the wife of William the Merchant, not William the Corn Factor.

There are letters between William Hood (Merchant), Samuel Taylor Coleridge and John James Morgan, which give William Hoods address as Brunswick Square.  I don't know Bristol but the modern Broad Weir appears close by?

Hello All

Thank you to all who looked and the replies from Capetown, Jomot, Claire and Steve.

Been looking at Steve's earlier comment, about the C of E not offering a burial service and found this, which I posted here, in West Yorkshire ...

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=769779.0

In respect of my George Hood being buried in the Quaker Burial Ground in 1845 at Selby, suicide can be definitely ruled out in his case.

However, it has led to other finds, questions and more information added a bit piecemeal, regarding research at the Yorkshire end.

Regards Mark
"George HOOD of Selby" Before 1812?

Born about 1785 (Yorkshire per 1841 Census)

Married Sarah RUSSELL at Selby 1815 newspaper - "both of that place".

Buried in the Quaker Burial Ground at Selby as "Not in Membership" in 1845, aged 60 years.

George HOOD of Selby was refused Membership of the Quakers in 1836.

Elected Overseer of the Poor of Selby in 1838.

Had both known (Selby) and unknown (some not stated 1846) property interests.

Possible (but unknown) links to COOK and/or PEARSON names.

Yes, my mistake, but the principle remains - Sarah's influence might have helped with her father-in-law's burial if that is the right connection. Brunswick Square is a short distance to the north-east of Broadweir and the area (St Pauls) one that was developing at this time as situation for the rising merchant class. William and Sarah had their children baptised at St Pauls church

Hello All

Thanks for replies.

Mary Hood for 1821 listed under the Bristol Wills.
http://archives.bristol.gov.uk/Willsindex.aspx
They also have other Wills not listed.


PCC Wills (1837 & 1857 already discussed)
http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/results/r?_aq=Hood%20Bristol&_ep=Hood&_cr=IR%7CPROB%2011&_dss=range&_ro=any&_st=adv


Sounds like there are other Registries for earlier Wills

Saw the Mary Hood entry in the death duty register , I can't see a burial for her.

She was living in Newfoundland Street, Bristol. Probate granted to Betty Veal.

Marriage of a Benjamin Veal to a Betty Ash 1802 Bristol - although there are numerous Veal marriages to a Elizabeth.

I could be wrong (I often am!) but isn't Newfoundland Street the address of the person granted administration, ie Betty Veal?
