Twerton (Twerton on Avon) - Twiverton
Tiverton and Twerton are very different places. They are both in Somerset. Tiverton is closer to Taunton and Twerton on Avon is now part of Bath. There was a time when Twerton was known as Twiverton. Hence the confusion. I can't find Twiverton on the internet to check the spelling - so I hope I have got it rigth.

red mail Selman Ponter
I'm trying to find information about Alice Selman, born 1889 in Twerton. I know she had a brother, and that their mother died whilst they were young, but I know little else and would love to find out their names. Alice was sent into service in London as soon as she was old enough but married Frederick Ponter from Twerton in 1921/22. any information would be great!
red mail CRISP
In 1851 Census, Ann CRISP 26 and her brother Samuel 24 CRISP of Charlcombe (N of Bath) said they were both born in Twerton: their father was John CRISP. Probably this Samuel CRISP is the same as the Samuel CRISP who was a farmer at Primrose Hill, NE of Weston, in 1871-1901 Censuses, because he said he had been born at Twerton (transcribed incorrectly as Tamerton for 1871 and Liverton for 1891). My great-grandfather's parents, John WEST and Jane CRISP, married in Bath in 1841 and I suspect this John CRISP was her father, despite the fact that the marriage record says her father was Joseph (sic) CRISP, butcher (in 1841 Census, a John (sic) CRISP, butcher, was living across the River at Weston). In the 1851 Census, John and Jane had 5 children and the third, Clara, 6, was born in Tiverton, Devon (sic). In the 1861 Census, John and Jane lived in separate houses in Bath: Jane WEST, Head, 43, Porteress at Printing Office, b Twerton, Wilts (sic) (looks like Tiverton on the original census document), Clara, 15, general servant, b NK (not known) Town (?), Devon (Twerton was not in Wilts and we know for certain Clara was b Tiverton, Devon; Jane's birthplace is still very uncertain). Jane died at 30 George St, Bathwick, Bath, in 1867 and Clara was the Informant. John died in Bath in 1871, a month after his son George West m in Walcha NSW Australia. Sound familiar to any dedicated researchers?

My great grandfather was Edward James Nixey born in Slough in 1863. By the time of the 1881 Census, he had moved with his mother, Martha, and some sibblings to Percy Terr in Twerton. I would be interested to hear from other Nixey family members who may be related to me through Edward's brothers, or through his children from his marriage to Sarah Nicholls. Any information on the Nixey family in the Bath area would also be gratefully recieved. Best wishes.
