Looking for Joseph Hobbs a Pilot from Pill,Easton Gordano,Somerset
« on: Thursday 09 June 16 22:58 BST (UK) »
Am looking for any information on Joseph & Jane Hobbs.joseph was born around1767 & died in Bedminster in 1842. The 1841 census has them living at Union Row,Easton Gordano,and he was a Pilot in Pill.
Their daughter Anne born 1802 in Easton Gordano married a James Gerrish,Sarah born 1795 married a George Lott & daughter Jane  born 1799 married a John Fox.

If anyone knows of any connection or further information I would be most grateful.

Joseph died in Bedminster Registration District in 1842.
Bedminster included the parish of Easton-in-Gordano until 1899.

Take a look at the Portbury Hundred website (http://www.portbury-hundred.co.uk), and click on "Portbury Church Records".

Under Easton-in-Gordano you will find baptisms from 1749, marriages from 1776 and burials from 1749.

Hi Kat

Yes, St Georges is still there (in fact the village/parish was sometimes known simply as "St Georges". Medieval but restored in Victorian times - you can see more by googling "St Georges, Easton in Gordano". I think the  graveyard has been researched and the headstones recorded if you try the Bristol and Avon FHS site (  bafhs.org.com ) who seem to have only 2 Hobbs buried there - both a fair bit later than yours. Worth checking for other names

Steve
Bumstead - London, Suffolk
Plant, Woolnough, Wase, Suffolk
Flexney, Godfrey, Burson, Hobby -  Oxfordshire
Street, Mitchell - Gloucestershire
Horwood, Heale Drew - Bristol
Gibbs, Gait, Noyes, Peters, Padfield, Board, York, Rogers, Horler, Heale, Emery, Clavey, Mogg, - Somerset
Fook, Snell - Devon
M(a)cDonald, Yuell, Gollan, McKenzie - Rosshire
McLennan, Mackintosh - Inverness
Williams, Jones - Angelsey & Caernarvon
