John Trevett/Trevitt identification
« on: Friday 24 November 17 16:38 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I have my 4th great grandfather John Trevet/Trevitt as being born in Puncknowle in 1775 and married to Martha Russell at Abbotsbury in 1809 then as a widower to Ann Farwell in 1819 in Bridport.  The record says he was from Abbotsbury.  I've found a Poor Law Settlement and Removal record of 1843 in which he says his parents were John Trevett/Trivett and Elizabeth Sprake and he was born in Puncknowle which is what I had on my tree but he goes through the details of his life saying who he has worked for and where and says he married Elizabeth at Loders who had since died. (I think she was Elizabeth Read) and had 6 children, 3 of whom had died. There's no mention of Martha or Ann.

I have John's parents as John Trivett and Grace Brown(e) and John's parents as Thomas Trevett and Joan Trevett and have a DNA match to Joan's brother Francis 1687 Litton Cheney who married Eustace Brown. 

My 3rd great grandfather who I believe to be John Trevett and Ann Farwell's son was John Trevett 1826 Abbotsbury who married Sarah Hallett and they can be found in the 1851 census with daughter Martha, living in Abbotsbury.

I'd appreciate any help with untangling this thanks.   :)

There is a possibility that there may be two John Trevets. The Dorset opc site (opcdorset.org) has the marriage to Martha Russell in 1809 but it also has a marriage between a John Trevett and Elizabeth Read in Loders 19 November 1797. I haven't had time to look for a death for Elizabeth, or for any children. The same site also has his baptism in 1775 in Punchknowle parents John and Elizabeth. Might be worth searching to see how many John Trevets were baptised around 1775.

I think I've found John's parents in the 1851 census. John Trivett who is 81 and born in Litton Cheney and his wife Anne who is 71 and born in Chideock.  So John would have been born in about 1770 and Anne in about 1780 but I can't find baptisms for either of them although there are Farwells born in Chideock around that time.
Can anyone help please?  Thanks. :)
