Hi Mark,

I'm not sure what records you've already checked, but the Bristol Poll Book for 1812 has nothing listed for Hood.  Also nothing in the Bristol Guide & Directory 1793/4.

Hi Jomot

Thank you.

A Poll Book around this period usually only lists people who were property owners. Property ownership entitled you to vote.

I wonder if the Bristol Guide & Directory was a subscription type, where you had to pay to be included.

This William Hood of Bristol, Corn Factor, of interest, was buried in 1821 by the Quakers as a Non Member, just like my George Hood of Selby was, so I had to consider him as a possible relative (Father, or Uncle).

Thanks Claire

I'll download that Will, even if only for elimination.

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.

If Kiddell and Hood are related.

I wonder if James Wason, William Hood or Joseph Walter, Accountant, are related?

I think this is a different family; William Hood and Sarah had their children baptised at St Pauls, Bristol c1810-20 and he is always described as a merchant. One of James Wason's sons was baptised William Hood Wason by the way. This William Hood died in South Carolina in 1837,

Thank you Jomot and Claire

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?

Regards Mark


EDIT: Thanks Steve for your comment.

There is a Will of a John Hood of Bristol dated 1802. This man was an ironmonger ~ mentions a son John GIBBONS Hood and his son William Hood

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?
