Is it right/legal to sell cars on the road as a business? 2013-05-29 08:58:11
Its clear that this is happening outside the Bell Inn beer garden reducing on road parking.

According to the CSP I asked at the Fun Day, as long as it is not illegally parked and taxed & insured there is not a lot you can do.

This website does not give legal advice. As this seems to be a police matter this could be resolved by attending the next Police Surgery at the Creech Village Hall at 8.00pm on the 13th of June.

I noticed this recently also. It needs to be stopped.

Information on James Blackmore's parents? 2013-05-28 08:34:12
Researching the Blackmore side of the family focusing now on great, great grandfather James Blackmore married to Hannah Bond in 1853.  Trying to locate James parents.  Does anyone have any information on this family. Please.

Mary,
Looking into your search for the names Blackmore and Bond on this website both names crop up in the churchyard index but not at the dates you are interested in. The marriage transcriptions 1852 – 1898 list two marriages. The primary school records list a Iris M Blackmore as a teacher but again too new.
There have been other questions about the names so keep digging here to see what you can find using the 'search' box at the top of the page.
Good luck in your hunt.

Hello Maureen, Thank you for your reply and the information you gave. Do you have any stories about your family around the time of Henry George and Worthy were alive? I have visited Taunton a lot in the past, mainly to do research on the Burgesses in the Records Office but I have actually seen Worthy and Mary Ann's grave in Creech St Michael. Do you know if the brothers were very close? My Grandmother's family moved to Gloucester in the early 1900's but she and my uncle used to visit 'Uncle Walt and Auntie Beat' who I believe must have probably lived in Ruishton. Do you know of any relations maybe living in Ruishton? Thank you once again for being so helpful. Regards to you and the Burgesses living locally.

Due to some kind of glitch in the system my previous email has failed to show the full contents here is the missing part, after south Wales it reads - married my father at all saints church Barry 18th April 1927; that's why Eric could not find any record in Taunton
Reply Maureen Plumridge 2013-09-12 20:26:43
Christine, My mother Florence Mabel nee Bobbett born oct.20th 1907 in Barry glam. South Wales, that's why Eric could not find any record in Taunton. My uncle Herbert married Dorothy Irene nee Needs, she died of TB at 35 years of age. My father was only 16 when his father died so did not talk about him very much. His mother Mary Ann lived with my parents until she died in 1936. Regards Maureen

Hello Maureen, Thank you for your interesting reply to my message. Henry George Burgess (your Grandfather's brother) is my Great Great Grandfather. My Grandmother is Gladys Violet James nee Burgess. Have you ever heard talk of her and my family? I am really interested in Georgianna Burgess. Do you know if her parents were George and Ann Burgess? I am really excited to have made contact with someone on the Burgess side of my family. I could go on and on asking questions but that would be a bit rude. Thanks again for your reply. Regards, Christine.

Eric, Thank you very very much for being so helpful. Your information definately fills in some gaps! Thank you so much. Regards. Christine.

Looking into my limited resources I have found birth records for Hubert William and Charles Henry Burgess both listed in Vol 5c and the same page 293 in Taunton registration district. You will need to get both certificates to confirm a relationship.
I found a marriage for Hubert (Herbert?) William Burgess who married Florence Mabel Hooper in Q1 1924. Vol 5c page 467. But this contradicts the memorial inscription we have in the church, as shown here.

B9 Sloping plinth with flower holder. Dorothy Irene BURGESS died 27. 8. 1941 Aged 35 years. Herbert William Burgess died 28.1.1967 aged 70 years.

B9 Headstone. In loving memory of Charles Henry BURGESS died 9th Oct. 1969 aged 73. Also of his wife Florence Mabel died 10th Feb 1994 aged 86 “United”

I cannot find a record of Charles Henry's marriage so there is some confusion.

As we are now dealing with possible living relatives of Charles and his brother I have to respect their privacy leaving you as a relative to conduct a fuller exploration. Good luck, if you feel you need further guidance a local family history group in your area may be a good start. Regards.

Eric, Thank you very much for your reply. I am very interested to hear that there are still Burgess's in Creech St Michael. My Great Great Grandfather, Henry married and went to live in Ruishton where he died. Edmund and Frank the other two sons died very young. I am wondering if any descendants of Worthy still live in the village. He appeared to have twin sons. Thank you once again for your help. Regards. Christine
Reply Eric Chown 2013-05-12 10:20:19
Christine,

I am not sure what research facilities you have but there are some Burgess's in the village. Bridging the gap between 1861 and now is too big a leap for me.
However in 1861 I did find Georgina (32) living with Sarah Burgess. She is shown as unmarried with three sons Henry, Worthy and Edmund. In 1871 she is listed as married to John Carew but tracking the sons, as you have enquired will be harder.
There is a grave for Worthy Burgess in the churchyard. See the parish church directory listing on this website.
I hope will help and give you further areas to discover.
Regards
