I have two conflicting burials for the wife of John Hannam (Hanham/Hanum) in Batcombe, Somerset. The Somerset Burial Index has Grace, wife of John buried 19 December 1680 whilst FreeReg has Jane wife of John buried 9 December 1680.

Unless there were two John Hannams who both lost their wives in December 1680, then one entry must be wrong, but which one.

Just to make things a little more complicated John had a daughter Grace bapt. 1662. Should the entry read daughter of instead of wife of? I cannot find the burials anywhere else.

Can anyone help, please.

Thanks

I have access via Anc. original burials for Batcombe 1642-1707. But the burials seem to jump from 1587 to 1681. It's a mess.

I'll keep on looking, in case the missing pages appear earlier, or later.

Many thanks Steve. So far I have found seven children born to them but daughter Jone is the link - she is my husband's 7 x gt grandmother.

Now to find John and Grace's marriage.
