Hello,

GILLETT family 'Switzerland' arrived 13 Apr 1858
Henry 35 Farm Labourer Pentenell Somerset Samuel & Harriet at Pentenell C.E. Read Brother Vincent Gillett at Mummell near Goulburn £4 R.R. per Vincent Gillett

Susan 34 - Pentenell Somerset John & Phoebe Father dead Mother at Pentenell C.E. Both None £4

John 15 Farm Servant Pentenell Somerset on board C.E. Read £4

George 14 Farm Servant Pentenell Somerset on board C.E. Read £4

and other children

Pentenell = Tintinhull


Marriages Jun 1842
GILLETT Henry Yeovil 10 923
BROWN Susan Yeovil 10 923


So Susan's mother Phoebe BROWN was alive and living in Tintinhull in 1858.

I'd like a look up please for Phoebe in 1841, 1851, 1861 and 1871.

Deaths Jun 1878
BROWN Phoebe 63 Yeovil 5c 345

That does not fit very well if daughter Susan is 34 in 1858.

Regards,

Dave

I'm checking for another death for Phoebe.

What if Phoebe remarried?

Marriages Sep 1849
Brown Phabe Yeovil 10 815
Brown Phoebe Yeovil 10 815
Epton Josiah Yeovil 10 815
Masters Elizabeth Yeovil 10 815
Masters Maria Yeovil 10 815
Ostler Jonah Yeovil 10 815
Robins John Yeovil 10 815
Taylor Ben Yeovil 10 815
TIBBS Jane Yeovil 10 815


Phoebe (nee CHOCKLEY) b. 1778 Tintinhull ??

Trying to match a name on that list. Can see no death that fits 1858-1861.

The only one the right age I can find in 1841:

name: Phoebe Brown
event: Census
event date: 1841
gender: Female
age: 65
birthplace:
record type: Household
registration district: Abergavenny
sub-district: Aberystruth
civil parish: Aberystruth
county: Monmouthshire


But how reliable is the born 1778 and the 1798 marriage?
