red mail Quarry Farm / Woodram Farm
Trying to find information on my 4 x Great Grandfather Peter Foreman and his family. They came from the Pitminster area of Somerset in the early 1800's. Peter Foreman was a Land Surveyor and Farmer. I have found the Baptism Records for his children, they were Baptised in the church of St. Mary and St. Andrew in Pitminster. On the Baptism records it states that they were living at Quarry Farm and I also think that they may have lived at Woodram Farm. Peter was married to Elizabeth Mary Wright. Will be grateful for any information received. Carol

red mail Nott, Lane, Hartnell & Rochester...all one woman!
Pitminster Confidential: Better than Fiction: Not a Nott? 25 Years a Lane, Remarried to a Rochester, Daughter of William Hartnell My 4xGGrandfather (Robert Lane b. abt. 1800) married Ann Nott (b. abt. 1804) on 15-10-1823 in Pitminster, Somerset, England. This was the name on her marriage license. They proceeded to have at least 6 children (all sons) John, James, George (my 3xGGf), Robert, Charles and Mark born between 1826-1842. I have a great deal of information about George’s family and a little about Mark. According to my records (Pitminster), Robert (the elder) passed away in September 1845. Then Ann Lane married Richard Rochester on 3-9-1848. On Richard’s marriage document (according to Pitminster records) he is a widower son of Joseph and Ann is the widow daughter of William Hartnell. I cannot find any reference to an Ann Hartnell born around 1804, I think there is one in 1809, but wouldn’t that be too young to get married in 1823? Plus, the 1881 census lists the year of birth as 1804 and birthplace as Pitminster. Was she married to a Nott before married Robert Lane? Was she simply an illegitimate child born to her mother’s name? But I can’t find her mother? I have to assume that the William Hartnell reference is correct, but I don’t know. What else could explain its appearance? I am not concerned with the social implications of these matters, I would just like to know who is who and build my family tree back for my own personal benefit. Any help in these matters would be of great help, if there is interest, I’d gladly share the information that I have. She was too old to bear children by the time she married Rochester, and the 1881 census shows her living in Blagdon Hill (Lane home for decades) as a pauper with two elder lodgers and the Death Index that she passed away in Q3 1889. Sounds like a very sad story.
