Dear List Members, Just wondering if any Purnell researchers may have any further information on the following Samuel Purnell family.Samuel married my relation, Britannia Bethell, born in 1795, in Painswick. Samuel was the son of a Samuel and Sarah Purnell.
A few notes: "...Britannia Bethell (baptised 1795) married a coachman-farmer, Samuel Purnell. Their son, Thomas Bethell Purnell (1834-1915) became a coal-merchant in Ledbury, Herefordshire."
Britannia Bethell was baptized 26 September 1795 and the record states "Britannia, daughter of Britannia Bethell - Widow."
