General opinion  is  that  our  t7cker family  are  the  gypsies  in  town  there  are  alot of  newspaper articles  about  them  for  a ll kind  of  things  and  they  are v always  called  gypsies.  Non  of  the v other  you  found  on  the  net  adds up   date wise  regarding  the  the original William  ticket
 Has  not  buried  with  his  wife.
They  had  19 children  12 survived.  They  were  very poor and  the  children  couldn't  wait  to  get  away  it  seems.you  were  probably  at dad's  funeral  the  other  month. They  weren't  butchers.  I'm  not  convinced  now  that  they  are  tucker or  were  married.  Hanah Anna or Harriet disappears  after  his  death  and  the  is  no  wedding  certificate yet found. They  were  in  Yeovil  in 1851 as  mat makers.  Not  on  any  other census before.  It is  says  according to  Mike and  hilda that  a brother of  William  worked  on  the  estate  in  Devon  as  Gardner  and  goes  wide  was  a cook and  they  married.  It  was  said  it  was  William and Mary but he  was  18 from  Taunton  and  she  was  16 from  Ireland.  Hope  that  helps

This is Sally I wonders if it was you
I think you are right about mat makers Simone els on this page said the were butchers I new they weren’t but me mum and dad said some tuckers had a butcher in Pontypridd they were related but would have been from the side of the family that settled William and Mary children’s children  :-*
