Ann MEAKER, 1771-6 Sep 1848, daughter of Edward MEAKER/Elizabeth LOVIBOND, married John HUCKER on 4 Jun 1798.
Anne MEAKER is very sketchy. She may have been born in High Ham in 1763, daughter of William MEAKER/Anne DOBIN. She married William JENKINS on 26 Apr 1787 in Othery, Somerset, UK.
If anyone has any information about either Meaker, particularly Anne, I would be most interested to hear from you.
Richard ARNOLD married Hannah WILLY on 1 Jan 1729 in the village of High Ham. I know nothing of Richard ARNOLD other than his wedding date. I think Hannah may have been the illegitimate daughter of Joanna WILLY of High Ham. Children I have found for this couple inlude: Elizabeth, 27 Oct 1730, High Ham, Mary, 15 May 1733, High Ham, (my ancestor) Thomas, 3 Aug 1735, High Ham, Hannah, 3 Dec 1738, High Ham, 31 Jul 1741, High Ham. I have been told there was a son John but I have found nothing of him. I fervently hope someone can add to my knowledge of this family.
Thomas BEAKE of Middlezoy, abt 1650, married Mary BOND of Othery, also abt 1650, in the village of Aller on 22 Jun 1674. Their son John, my ancestor, was baptized 03 Aug 1673, married Ann GODFREY on 10 Jul 1703, and was buried in Middlezoy on 18 Aug 1728. Children for John/Ann include Mary, 1701, Amandus, 1703, and my ancestor, Ann, abt 1707--28 Dec 1782. The BEAKE line leads me to my JENKINS, HIGGINS, and DAVIES/DAVIS families. Any information someone might on have any of these Middlezoy familes would be greatly appreciated.
I have a number of brick walls to knock down. Among these are wives with unknown maiden names. Again, I have no stories but if a distant cousins sees my journals they may have stories for me.

I have no KICK stories. What I know is: Henry KICK, abt 1702--1743, Aller, married Mary FOSTER, abt 1703, Aller, on 19 Nov 1723, Aller. I have found three children for this couple: Elizabeth, 18 Nov 1724, Aller (married John PETTY of High Ha in April 1754; Thomas, 1727--1731, Aller; and my ancestor, Matthias KICK, 12 Oct 1737, Aller, who married Jane WEBB on 30 Jan 1758, Langport.

Thomas MURRAY, abt 1728, married Mary ------ abt 1749. They had 4 children: John, 1750, William, 1752, Betty, 1753, Mary, 1755. My MURRAY ancestry begins for certain with John MURRAY, born abt 1769. Could he have been a gradnson of Thomas? John married widow Penelope PALLING, nee INMAN, in 1789 in Cannington, Somerset, UK. I really hope to be able to find a date of birth and parents for John MURRAY. He was buried in Cannington on 12 Apr 1848. His second marriage was to widow Elizabeth FURZE, nee BISS, on 30 May 1814. John/Penelope's first child, Ann, born in 1791, Cannington, is my ancestor.
Bridget ROACH was born 8 Feb 1825 in the civil parish of Ross, Co. Westmeath, Ireland. Her father's name may have been John. In the US, she married Matthew SULLIVAN, 15 years her junior. They married in Ohio and settled for the rest of their lives in Watertown, Wisconsin. Bridget died in Watertown, Wisconsin in May 1890.
