|My earliest Knowles ancestor traced so far was James Knowles who died in Yatton between 1744 - 1746 .|
He and his wife Mary (Baal) had two sons-
James christened 3 Feb 1743/4 who was buried 13 Aug 1820 in Congresbury
And William christened after his father's deathJuly 27 1746 who was buried in Yatton 5 Feb 1801.
I have descended from James' side of the family.
The families moved via Wookey and Compton Martin to Midsomer Norton and have been there for the last 100 years.
Other families in my tree include:
Blake, Gulliford, Blacker, Thorne, Turner, Buxton, Vincent, Amor, Mullins, Quance, Maggs, Carpenter
