Two


From on Thursday, 25 September

Hello Elizabeth, I came across your site quite by chance and noticed you have a lot of Yewdalls listed. You have John Yewdall chr.27/1/1827 he is definately son of James Yewdall and Martha Burnett, but the one Iam interested in is a William Hurford, you have 3 listed, it is number 2, William Hurford b.abt 1831 Thurloxton, Somerset, son of James Hurford and Ann Boon according to his marriage cert, he married Isabella Cunningham daughter of James Cunningham and Isabella Johnstone.

What I would like to know if you had found a death for William Hurford (2), I mistakenly got the death for William (1) but have not found William(2).

My interest in these people is because i started a family tree for my son, his gr.grandmother was Alice Alma Burnett Hurford and her parents are James Frederick Charles Hurford b.1865 and Ester Martha Sara Annie Yewdall.

Hoping you can help.............Kittie Dighton William Hurford Birth: 14 Dec 1834 Christening: 11 Jan 1835 Wesleyan, Bridgwater, Somerset, England, Parents: Lydia and James Hurford
