Geordie daughter:  As you seem to like snippets.  I've checked with the Forest of Dean Family History Website (free to join)

www.forest-of-dean.net and checked under their resources:  Gloucestershire Marriage Licence Allegations 1637-1837 and Marriage Bonds 1730-1823 and by putting the symbol % in the surname - there are 770 in total  - just for BRISTOL (mostly there are two copies, one being the Bond, the other the Licence.... residence: Bristol

In total, there are 152,080 bonds/licences on the above website.

.... are you do mention a name of Christopher LUDLOW......there are two for

Christopher LUDLOW of St Thomas in the City of Bristol 4th Nov 1757

The Licence: gives his age as 22 and a Batchelor to marry Martha BODDOME aged 22, a Spinster of Stroud, sworn to marry beforew Ste Phillips to marry at Stroud

the second one the Bond

says, Christopher LUDLOW is a Yeoman of St Thomas in the City of Bristol to Martha BEDDOME

Witness is: William DALLAWAY a Clothier of Stroud

The groom and William DALLAWAY are bound in the sum of 500

Lots of PEACHES/BROWNE/SHORT etc. in all short of places....


----

You do mention BEDDOME/LUDLOW

You're an absolute genius! There are several marriages I'd like to get full details of, including one for Thomas Short and Dorcas Henderson if they have it, so you know where I'll be today! Sugarbakers is the one with the main interest in Samuel Peach, as S.P. ran a sugar house in partnership with Samuel Henderson for many years.

Sugarbakers:

You've probably seen these, but just in case. These are legal records that have been indexed as part of the Anglo-American Legal Tradition project.

These are Chancery Final Decrees, this first from 1704:

Henry Blunt sugar baker & Dorothy his wife, daughter of Dorothy Hutt and William Hutt.

and another from 1723:

Thomas Corbett of London, sugar baker; and Sybil his wife, daughter of John Andrews, citizen and woolman of London

Capetown: what's the odds that the Wm. "YEGTOMES" who witnessed Anthony and Sarah Henderson's marriage was actually another BEDDOME?

Thank you, Vance ... both new to me. Will add to db asap.

Capetown: Don't think that's our Samuel Peach. We've connected him to Tockington. Checked his will on Ancestry - his wife was Sarah, though no mention of sugar or Henderson - but I won't be summarising that will ........... it runs into 39 pages !

Sugarbakers: just out of curiosity this morning I checked, and Samuel Peach is listed as a HABERDASHER in both the 1754 and 1774 Poll Books. He's an out-voter in the parish of Olveston in 1774 which at least confirms that he was living at Tockington House by that time. Haberdashery is mostly things like buttons, ribbons and laces, so it's quite possible that Samuel had an assistant, or one or two of his womenfolk, running the shop while he was off at the sugar refinery. Haberdashers were very often linen-drapers too, and the terms seem to have been used interchangeably.

Interestingly, while most of the Bristol parishes had between two and four sugar bakers in 1774, St. James had a grand total of twelve!

By the way, what did SUGAR COOPERS do, do you know?

Capetown: for some reason my computer won't open those images (I probably need to update something or other), so I'm going to ask my son if he can open them on his laptop, so I can have a look at them.
