red mail Richard Follett & Marianne Newton
Richard Follett (1825-1871) was born in Kingsbrompton and died in Bishops Lydeard. He married Marianne Newton (1825-1900) of Crowcombe. Both Richard's father and grandfather were named John Follett. His mother's name may have been Maria. I believe his grandmother was Elizabeth How. Marianne Newton's father was Charles Newton, and her mother was Mary (possibly Roebuck or Rowbuck, but perhaps Francis). Does anyone have information to add about any of these folks? Betty
