Thanks everyone,

That establishes that they died at Market Weston rather than Weston, and I'll bear in mind that they may have been buried outside of the parish, but the first place to look would be MW?

At that time I would have thought that they would have been buried within the parish, I think St. Mary.  Have you got any names in mind that would help the search?

Its a bit of a stretch, but the Flatmans were milling here from about 1800 to about 1850.  The business was lucrative and was often passed down the generations.  A long shot but that would be my first guess.

Not sure how complete the NBI records are but there are no burials showing up in January 1779 at MW.

The first burial is in February of a John Blomfield
Luce, Tippett , Thomson, Dolling ~ Devon & Cornwall
Mocquard ~ London, France

Thanks for that.

The Blomfields were miller too, but not in this area.  Maybe I'll need to pop over to Bury Record Office and check out the burial books.
