Sara Louise West
« on: Monday 29 September 14 02:02 BST (UK) »
Hi, can anyone help me with any information on my Great Grandmother Sara Louise West. I believe she was born around 1868 in Bath, Somerset, England. She married Frank Alfred Rogers. They came over to Canada around the 1900's. They had 2 children: Edith and Alfred

Hi
Do you know when and where they married and do you have their marriage certificate? This would show her Fathers name - hopefully!
Where do you have the information on her possible birth from - I'm not finding her yet. Is it definite as to the spelling of her and also her husbands name eg Sarah rather than Sara and Rodgers or Rogers.
Any extra information and it's source will help us all further.
Thanks.

Fanny BURGE Baptised 24 Feb 1867 (birth 13 May 1865) St pere and St Paul, Shepton Mallet
Parents EDWIN HENRY/ANNIE LOUISA
Father a Gardener

FreeBMD has a Marriage Sept 1862 Reg Bath, for a Edwin Henry BURGE witha a Annie Louisa WEST on same page.

ANNE West Baptised same Church as James, 18 Oct 1840 to JAMES/MARY, Father Labourer, abode Hinton.

So confirms James Parents as I found earlier.

1841 Hinton Charterhouse, Somerset;
James West 20, Ag Lab

William West 3
Ann West    9 Mo

1851;
James West 33
Mary West    32

Sarah Croak 4, Visitor


The Marriage of James West to Mary seems to be 1840 in Hinton (check FreeREG) and has their Fathers names/occp's

Also 1st Child WILLIAM, age 3 in 1841 was illegitimate (possilbly James Son though)
His Baptism is on FreeREG also 7 June 1838 under Marys maiden name

Thank you all so much for helping me with my Great Grandmother. I couldn't find a thing under her name and maybe because I was searching under Louise West, but I am pretty sure I tried Sara West too. Anyway you have all been so helpful because I wanted to have something for my family tree. My mom said she was a wonderful grandmother and I remember her vaguely. It is so nice that we can get help from you people because I have ancestry.ca but they didn't help at all with this situation. Keep up the great work. It is greatly appreciated.
