My other hobby, after family history, is counted cross stitch embroidery. I like to design my own pictures but do admit to cheating as I have a computer programm into which I can scan photos and the programme turns them into embroidery charts. Not every photo is good enough - much depends on the...

Somerset Marriage Index has the marriage on 14 February 1849. George hain was a Glover of Norton sub Hambdon. His father was James Hain, Labourer. Emma was also from Norton sub Hambdon and her father was Isaac Lawrence, Trunkmaker. Witnesses were William Hain and James Tarish Benson.
I wholeheartedly agree, Steve. We are lucky that so much has survived the ravages of time etc and my grateful thanks go to all the people who have worked hard to get so much on line for us. However it ain't half frustrating when, no matter how hard you try, certain ancestors just cannot be found.
Thanks Steve. I'd found the first two baptisms with fathers Enoch and John but neither are correct as her parents were definitely William and Beatrice. They made a joint Will in which they mention their daughter Jane Seager.
I don't think she was baptised with all three names. They only ever seem to have the one name in the 1690s. She was born in Dudley (I think) c1694, parents William and Beatrice Rollinson but I haven't found a baptism using any one of the three names.
I have an ancestor, Joseph Seager, baptising sons in Kingswinford, Staffs in the early 1700s. According to the baptisms his wife is called Jane. After his death Probate was granted to his widow Jane and in Jane's Will she mentions her sons whose names fit with the baptisms. The problem arose...
The Wilts FHS Baptism Index has both the Elizabeth Harris baptisms down as taking place in Bradford on Avon and both baptisms give the parents as Thomas and Catherine. Not sure where they get the Catherine from. The entry just says Parish Baptisms so not sure if that is the PR entry or the...
