John & Elizabeth Fry
« on: Wednesday 14 March 18 12:35 GMT (UK) »
On 12 Jun 1866 in (West) Monkton Parish Church, Somerset:
John Fry, widower, Mason, (father: Edward Fry) married Elizabeth Schafer, widow (father John Phippen). Both resident in Monkton, Som.

Elizabeth's spouse, James Schafer died in 1863. They had 5 children (Matilda, Rosina, James, Harriet, Henry Schafer) and lived in Bristol and S Wales 1841/51/61.

Elizabeth (Phippen) was born in Taunton, Somerset in 1802/3. No info. on John Fry.

I've not been able to find census or other records for John & Elizabeth after the wedding. Can anyone help please?

Thanks Kay, that looks very likely. On 'Ancestry' Frey looks like a transcription error for Fry. All the facts seem to fit.
