Anecdote - Musings and Reasonings

Research note (complicated): There is a marriage between John and Elizabeth SYMONS in 1844. John was the son of Joseph a card maker, living in Matthew's Barton. Elizabeth was the daughter of the deceased Henry, living in Yeoman's Yard. One witness was Charles SYMONS. They were both single and over 21.

Even though the PR says he was single, I think there is a possibility he may have married Elizabeth ROSSITER before 1837. Son Joseph was Chr in the Wesleyan Chapel in Frome 1837.

Another possibility is that these are 2 sons of Joseph and Sophia, one named Arthur John and one named John..

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: Son Joseph was Chr July 1837, born Jan the same year. His mother's parents were William and Sara ROSSITER. He was born (or at least was living in) Wolverton, Somerset, in 1837. His father is named as John.

    There is a death, but no age given, registered in Dec qtr 1841 of an Elizabeth AYRES in Frome 10/575 or 275. Nothing matches this in the burial register in Frome or suurrounds. There is nthing in the Somerset papers.
