St James Church Shaftesbury
I went to the churchyard today to put a flower on my Grandparents' grave, Eliza Jane (nee Padfield) and Stephen James King and found some fairly fresh flowers on it. As I think there are very few relatives left wondered if anyone has any knowledge as to who it might be. Eliza's parents are buried beside the path leading to the church door.

red mail Oram and Plowman families
I am descended from Hugh Oram (butcher) and Hannah Plowman who married in 1790 and had three children, lastly Louisa born on the last day of the century, and am interested in both their families. The Orams lived in Shaftesbury from before 1700 and the Plowmans came from Cann. I am especially hopeful of finding the marriage of Hugh Oram, particularly the one around 1747-50 - which remains a complete mystery. Also Elizabeth Plowman who married David Gillingham in 1822. Any information or connections would be appreciated.
