Locus Operandi

Research Notes

  • Research note 02: John BENNETT is memorialsed inside Holy Trinity. He died 1676 - metal plate in oval stone cartouche with heavily enriched and gilded surround, and shield-of-arms of Bennett and Ashlock quarterly, impaling Hall.

    There is a Bennett Hill Road in Shaftsbury.
  • Research note 03: There were 3 people of children burned in St Peter's Shaftsbury 1711-1718. This is the earliest records I have found in Shaftsbury. The PR transcripts of Holy Trinity start in 1695, and those of St Peter's start in 1624. The 3 who were buried may be the children of John and Of William who appear in the Chr at about the same time..
  • Research note 01: In an attempt to confirm/deny any link to BENNETT involved in Drapery and smullging in Dorset c1650 I am penciling in a family up and down from Walter, All is speculation, unless I ffind a confirmed l.
