Iíve just been researching the same family for a friend. As far as I can tell this Staffwhim is named after her fathers mother. I have found the mothers burial record but I still have no idea where the name came from originally.

Welcome Joady :)

I see this is an old thread but had a look.

There is a baptism for a Jacob Hatheril at Bremhill, 22 June 1760, to Joseph Hatheril and Staferhim.

Perhaps she is the Staffwhim Haddrell buried in 1783.

I have Joseph and Staffwhim as the parents for a William Haddrell too and he named one of his daughters Staffwhim. I just wish I could find out where the name originated! I never found out her surname though so thank you!

I havenít found a maiden surname (yet?).

There are two separate couples in Bremhill at much the same time:

Joseph and Staferhim Smallcome, having children in the 1750s-1760s.
Joseph and Staffwhim/Staferhim Hatheril/Haddrell, having children in the 1740s-1760s.

? is the f an S  (I know it doesn't help much)

Baptism at Bremhill, 8 November 1752

It is written as

William, Son of Jofeph and Stafwhim HATHEROL

The s is an f

There is a website:  Why in old English was an "S" written as an "F"  .... wherever a double s occures within a word it is shown as ff as in oppreffion.  etc

Stasswyn  ???
