Seeking info concerning ancestors and descendants of James Dominey (1819-1883), born at Stoke St. Mary, near Taunton in Somerset AND his wife, Esther Yard (abt. 1825-1895) born in Martock, also Somerset. James was apparently the head gardener, among other places, at Coker Estates near Yeovil and together with his wife later ran the Somerset Inn in Yeovil for several years.
Although there are several Dominey folks in the vicinity of Taunton in Somerset and though there seems to be even more in Dorset, I have not yet been able to tie James to any of the early ones.James' father's name was John and he had a brother named John also.Needless to say, there are John Domineys in that part of England, but still I am unable to identify James' father with any degree of certainty.
Any help greatly appreciated.
My ancestor in the US is George William Dominey (1849-1938) who married Elizabeth Parker (also from Yeovil) after coming to SE Nebraska in the late 1860s.
