My GG grandmother was Shelomith BLAKE who was born in 1839 and married William JOLLY in 1860. Her parents were Stephen BLAKE (1767-1867) and Philla JARRETT (1801-1883) – Stephen was a cooper in Brede. Her siblings were Sarah, Philla, Mary, Jane (who married a RICHARDSON) and Elizabeth (who married a FUGGLE)
Many of these are buried in the church graveyard very close together and have very prominent gravestones.
Stephen’s siblings were Thomas and Robert; and his parents were Thomas BLAKE (1741-1815) and Lucy POLHILL (1774-1808).
And Thomas’s parents were Thomas BLAKE sometimes BLACK(E) (1703-1768) and Jane GRAYLING (1710-1780). They also had Ann, Mary, Jane, Elizabeth and Robert.
Anyone else have any links with these? I do know that a lot of the family ended up around Cork in Ireland.
