Thank you for your suggestions. I am very sorry that I missed your posts as I would have responded earlier. George Foot died in 1923 and therefore it is unlikely that there would be many pictures of the family after that time although the cottage in the woods survived into the 1960's.
Thank you again, Mark

Claire, thank you for responding. I would love to know what you know about the 'Foot's'. My tel is (*) and my email is (*). I have gathered a fair amount of family history so hopefully I can add to your info as well.

Thank you once again,

Perhaps the most famous industry was brass making. There was an important site at or near Keynsham. There is a brassmills pub but I am not sure if it is on the site or near by.

Kind regards

Many thanks for getting back. I wish I had visited the Inn. My gt gt gt grandfather lived in a cottage at Remedy (just up from the pub) and his son George was woodman/gamekeeper at Up Cerne.

Thank you once again and if I come across a picture I will sent it to you.

The only possible I can find is a bapt of Edward Higgens at Barwick 9/6/1751. I'm not sure if that would make him too old but the area is close to East Coker and Bradford Abbas.

Sorry no further information. At that time the spelling of Higgins was recorded as Higgens. A child Sarah was born in 1804 and batp for George Higgens, again at Bradford Abbas, was on the 26/9/1810. It only gives the mother Elizabeth's name so I assume that Edward had died. I can not find a death in the Bradford Abbas Parish Records.

Many thanks


Somerset / Edward Higgins of East Coker

Later generations of my 'Foot' family lived at East Coker but through my grandmother's Higgins family there is an Edward Higgins who married Elizabeth Harris in Bradford Abbas in Dorset approx 10 miles away in 1802. He gives his residence address as East Coker. I have no other details of Edward and would welcome any help. Many thanks Mark

Many thanks and I did advise the crew list project and hopefully at sometime the info will come to hand. I believe if he had been wounded he would have shown so at least I know he was not badly hurt at that action.

Thank you again,

Thank you so much for all your help. You really have been extremely helpful.
Thank you again,

p.s. I wonder if you know how I can prove he was at the Battle of Jutland?
