My Somerset Thatcher Family

I believe myself to be a direct descendant of John THATCHER/Mary CARY, married in Aller, Somerset, UK, on 2 Feb 1656, their daughter Joan, who married John SMALL of Othery on 22 May 1686. However, I can't make the connection to their daughter Joan, who married Arthur KEIRLE on 29 Nov 1732 in Othery. This couple made their home in Stoke St. Gregory. Their daughter Martha married George HUCKER in Othery on 23 Mar 1755. If anyone can help me make this connection, I would greatly appreciate it.

Looking For My Murray Connection

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.

Oram Hucker

Oram HUCKER is reported to have been born any time between 1690-1700 in Middlezoy or Othery, Somerset, UK. He married Elizabeth LEE of Westonzoyland on 25 Nov 1721 in Middlezoy. Of course, I'd like to know Oram's date and place of baptism and his parents. Oram HUCKER was buried in Othery, Somerset, UK on 20 Nov 1768.

Brick Walls

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.
Tobias DAVIS/Prudence -----, mar.: abt 1698

Robert DAVIS/Elizabeth ----, mar.: abt 1728

Tobias DAVIS/Elizabeth -----, mar.: abt 1750

Thomas HAMLIN/Mary -----, mar.: abt 1743

William HIGGINS/Mary ----- mar.: abt 1717

William HIGGINS/Elizabeth ----- 2nd wife, mar.: abt 1734

Henry HUCKER/Mary ----- mar.: abt 1744

Richard PERRY, abt.1688/Ann ----, mar. abt 1708

Richard PERRY, abt 1688/Elinor ---- mar. abt 1718 (second wife)

All these people were from the Village of Middlezoy, Somerset, UK, but, of course, may have married in another village.

With the exception of PERRY, all these people were from the village of Middlezoy.

Kicks of Somerset, UK

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. Their son, Thomas, 14 Mar 1759--4 Jul 1840, Aller, married Rebecca GROVE, abt 1763, Aller, on 25 Jul 1782, Aller. Their son, Thomas, 31 Jul 1785--18 Mar 1870, Aller-Mark, married Ann MURRAY, 11 Apr 1791, Cannington, 16 Jun 1871, Mark, on 8 Dec 1811, Othery. Their son, George, 2 Feb 1832, Othery, married Eliza HUCKER, 1835--1916, Middlezoy, on 31 Mar 1855, Meare. Their son, Fred, 8 Jul 1855, Westhay, 1927, Middezoy, married Emily HUCKER, 11 Jun 1855--3 Nov 1937, Middlezoy. This is only one branch of my extensive Somerset family.
