I would like to know who compiled this site and info and for what reason? Its superb. Is there any possibility of its being extended to further parishes in the area?

What a great site! Can anyone help me please regarding Mary Parslow, bapt Berkeley 1739. This site and IGI give John as her father, but what about her mother? Ann Lawrence perhaps, but can anyone confirm please?
I believe this Mary Parslow married Nathaniel Miles in Stonehouse, 19 April 1762. Again, any confirmation would be much appreciated!

A wonderful site that I have used several times and it always provides me with some new facts about the Summers family of Berkeley, Newport,Cam and Ham. If anyone else is researching the Summers family, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Super site. Have traced my paternal g.mother (Laura Annie nee Smart) back to living at Stambourne Villa Brookend
with her father Henry Smart riverpilot her mother Maria (nee Cooper) her brother Edwin James (who unfortunately died ( at the age of 4) 16/7/1874. How?
Her older sister Olivia Maria (who later
married Alfred Shaw) Her 3 younger brothers Francis Robert, Alfred Henry &
George Cooper. Francis Robert died at
sea in 1918. On the 1901 census a Robert Reynolds appears as stepfather
he is down as a retired publican was landlord of The Black Horse Slater Street Berkeley his wife Elizabeth died in 1900 (she seems to have been a Smart)
but how can Robert have been stepfather
to Henry Smart?
Also Maria's father a ships carpenter an
her mother Sarah lived at Oakhunger in 1841. Can anyone give me any information about Oakhunger, how Edwin died or the mysterious stepfather.

A BIG thank you! This site has been such a great help in my quest to trace the BAKER family tree. So much so that I even popped into Berkeley on the way to Cornwall! Such a great small village. We even tried to find some bakers in the churchyard using the data from this site. We found some but not the ones we were hoping to find! So the tree grows bigger.
Thanks again and keep up the good work!

I am a very regular user of Scribes Alcove and cannot express how thankful I am for the hard work that the website's creator has put in to produce this immensely helpful and easy to use site.

I am now looking at the history of Thomas Clarke a tallow chandler in Thornbury in the first quarter of the 1700's.

He had two children that I know of - Sarah (born 1733 married George Rolph in 1767) and Thomas Clarke and he was a Quaker. Can anyone help with this family and their connection to Wigmore House?

A Great site which I found by chance,whilst researching my Smith Family roots in Berkeley. My great grandparents were Sidney and Hester Hannah Smith. I know that Sidney's grandfather came from Saul but know nothing more. Hester's parents were Henry Elliott and Sarah Lord of Owlpen
but nothing more. If anyone has any information I would love to hear it.
I will keep searching.

I have just come across a photo of John Morgan of Thornbury, born 1797/8, taken in 1864. His daughter, Sarah Virgo Morgan married Robert williams of Thornbury and migrated to South Australia. I also have copies of two editions of a biographical sketch in doggerel rhyme (to quote) called 'The Genius', published 1848 in Thornbury, by HV Morgan, the cousin of Sarah Virgo Morgan. The second addition was published in 1849, printed and sold by John Brown Bookseller and J Neate, Printer, Thornbury. It is apparently about J(ames) Neate, surveyor. Does anyone out there know any of this story, or have information on these people?
