Re: Hardwidge, South Brent, Somerset, England
Happy New Year, hope you had a good Christmas.
Thank you very much for the information, it is very interesting.It sounds possible that Joseph could have been from the Westbury area.It would be great if you could look in the transcripts for him, if you have time, it's outside the Somerset boundry so won't be able to look up the baptisms at the Records Office in Taunton. I have been unable to find a burial entry for Joseph, so don't know his year of birth.His wife, Betty, was buried in 1845 aged 72 (born c.1773) so I would think Joseph was born about that time or earlier.
I'll keep my eye open for Hester!
