 :) Thank you so much for forwarding this. I've been far too busy to do any research recently, but did go & get a PIN from the Library for online access to newspapers only last week. This was just what I was looking for. Julie

Gloucestershire / FRAMPTON -ON-SEVERN

Can anyone tell me how far back Frampton on Severn parish records exist please ( presumably these are in Gloucester PRO)?

My ancestor was John Canning christened on 15 August 1784 at Frampton-on-Severn, the son of John Canning & Anne Hewlett. (Anne Hewlett was christened in Frampton ľon-Severn on 24 November 1754, daughter of Daniel & Elizabeth Hewlett). John Canning b.1784 married Mary Tucker of Clifton in Bristol on 16.10.1808.
 
Memorial inscriptions in Frampton on Severn church include one to John Canning died 1798 (age 41 this makes birth 1757), wife Ann in 1811 Age 56 + Esther Verny 27/11/1797 Age 1 & Mary 10/10/1843 Age 56. I'm assuming Mary may have been John's sister - but interested in where Verny connection comes from & also any information about Canning family pre 1800.

I think some inscriptions from graveyards are available on their website too.

Yes, James Johns , Bristol died in 1844 after falling through a hatch  at Finzel's sugar refinery. Gather workers contributed to a 'benefits fund' so that if any of them were injured or killed, their dependants would be provided for.
