just checking in - your request is proving more difficult than I hoped. Just to let you know I haven't given up, plenty more avenues left yet. I'm still on the case and will let you know how it goes! Sorry it's taking a while.
I'll keep digging for your names and looking into the possibility of a connection with Pearsalls.

Thank you so much - it really is much appreciated.  Is there anything more information I can provide possibly through a private message (don't know if this site enables PMs but an option).

Kind regards

Really enjoyed reading all the posts about Taunton.  Thank you. 
I'm looking for Daniel Sutton ( -1799), 1st wife Hannah (1741-1775), 2nd wife Elizabeth (1748-1826), who ran or owned the New Inn (not sure if that was in Taunton or Wilton?).  My mom found him in 1788-1799 Quarter Sessions of Taunton St. Mary: Eastreach, for Gray__inghouse Pugsley Est.  Can anyone shed light on what this was?  Looking for history & any clue of where he was born.  Thanks.

Not much luck with the Suttons in my book. There is one mention only of that surname, that being Sutton the jeweller living in a peaked house in Fore St.

Regarding New Inn, there are 49 inns indexed in the book for Taunton in the 1820's, but none by the name of New Inn.

Thank you for the Suttons & New Inn lookup!  Charles Sutton, the jeweler, was Daniel Sutton's son.
Regards,
Celia

Anne, unfortunately the closest name I can see in the index is Winslow, which doesn't help you very much  :(

Ringwater - Although East Street and East Reach both get quite a few mentions in the book as the author describes who owned which shop, the name Skinner does not appear.

Hi Les

I'm in pursuit of any mentions of BROMSGROVE, butchers, and variants in Taunton.  Although not in my family tree I've been researching the history of BROMSGROVE'S Menagerie with links to WOMBWELL's and the Giant Joseph SEWELL who was brought from South Wales to Taunton for burial in 1829.  There is also a link to lion-tamer "Manchester Jack" alias John Manchester GILL, who married Betsy BROMSGROVE, and Nat FARNHAM, the dwarf exhibited with SEWELL.

Any mentions will be most welcome!
SOM/Chard/Combe St Nicholas/Ilminster:  Dean[e]/Doble/Jeffery/Burt;  DEV/Yarcombe:  Dean/Gill/Every; 
BRK/Newbury:  Westall/Green/Lewis/Canning;  WIL/Allcannings:  Hiscock/Amor;  Froxfield:  Hobbs/Green;  HAM/Kingsclere:  Martin/Hiscock/Westall;  WAR/Marton/Bubbenhall:  Glenn/Holmes;  STS/Yoxall/Hamstall Ridware/Barton-u-Needwood:  Holmes/Dainty;  STS/Brewood/Codsall/Penkridge/Hatherton:  Dean[e]; GLA/Aberdare:  Dean/Dane
