Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Could this mean gay??
« on: Saturday 19 December 20 19:45 GMT (UK)  »
In 1825 Homosexuals could still be hung for commiting sodomy. The last hanging, for such an offence was in 1835. Refer to the execution of James Pratt and John Smith.

The only way of being gay in the forces at that time was to enlist in the Gordon Highlanders
"The finest regiment in the world" as per Winston C.

Bradford and North Brierly is West Yorks..... that's a long way from Ashburton, but we have a fishing family who went from Brixham to Hull, so it is feasible.

The connection is the wool trade. Ashburton was a prominent wool  town and I believe North Devon sheep had particularly long wool good for high quality cloth / serge etc. Bradford Wool Exchange was the global capital of the wool trade. Lots of traffic between both places.

According to FREEBMD John Cranch PETHERBRIDGE married one of the following women:
Elizabeth FOWLER or Eliza LEEK or Mary FRANKALND or Mary PATCHETT. However, the GRO birth indices show that the following children were registered PETHERBRIDGE with mother's maiden name LEEK, all Bradford & N Bierley district:
1849 Mary; 1851 Ann; 1852 Eliza; 1854 Lydia; 1856 Thomas; 1858 Sarah; 1861 Harriet.

The birth mother name is conclusive thanks. Leek. I have the 1861 and 1871 census prints for John Cranch Petherbridge family however it didnt note maiden name.

The Petherbridge /  Cranch connection arises from Bradford where the Woodhead tree I am exploring has a marriage between John CRANCH Petherbridge from Ashburton Devon and Elizabeth in Bradford 1848 who had a daughter Elizabeth Petherbridge who married Joseph Woodhead in 1873 in Bradford.
all connected with wool trade / spinning/ mill related occupations

Ok think I have found John Cranch Pethe(r)bridge in baptisms Ashburton Page 101

1924 Jany 25th John Cranch son of Thomas (wool comber) and Mary Pethebridge of Ashburton

So I just need to make the bridge to the Cranch connection.

Ashburton PR burials state:
1789 January 18, Christian, the wife of Thomas PETHEBRIDGE
The 1809 entries read:
June 16 Christian PETHEBRIDGE
June 22 Mary PETHEBRIDGE, Widow

There was a James PETHEBRIDGE who married a Christian LEGASSICK in Buckfastleigh.

A Joseph & Grace CRANCH of Ashburton baptised a son John in the non-conformist Independent Chapel at Newton Abbot in 1754 - possible parents to Christian?
Joseph married Grace FURSMANat Ashburton 7 Apr 1738. Christian, a daughter of Joseph CRANCH, was buried at Ashburton 29 April 1749. Perhaps they then named their next daughter Christian?

Great. I think there was a daughter b1783 Christian . She may have died unmarried in 1809 ??

Thanks for this. Any other gleanings much appreciated
