Ancestor tracing Martin Southwood 2016-02-22 11:14:57
Good morning,

One of my hobbies is tracing ancestors both for myself and other people. At present I am working on a family supposed to be living in Creech or at least Heathfield around the late 1800s. Father, Thomas George Osment was believed to have been the local Police Constable (quoted in reports for 1880 and 1887). By the 1911 Census, he is a 'retired Policeman' and from archives owns or runs a local farm. His wife was Elizabeth Honor Osment, children were Clifford, (became a mason), Tom, (was wounded in WW1 and a prisoner of war), Gladys, Leonard and Evelyn. It is this last lady that I'm having difficulty with. She is said to have been baptised at Creech in 1907 but there doesnt appear to have been a record (although ealier children had been). She also went to Bishop Fox's in Taunton around the time of WW1 and later the whole family moved to Theale in Berkshire.

If any of your readers or contacts know of any links or local history, I would be most grateful for any information.

Regards,

Martin Southwood martinsouthwood@btinternet.com

Hello
I am an occupational therapist and work with many older people in the Taunton area.
I have one lady in your area looking to attend regular group for older, less able people. Do you run such a group, or are you aware of any in the Creech St Michael area please?
