I think it is the son because he was 10 and declared to be their son in the previous census. If he was the grandson there is no SCOTT male old enough to be his father in this family.
However Elizabeth would have been 44 when he was born
I'm sending you more documents to worry your mind a little more.
Take note of ANN Phelps who ends up living with John

Fortune Scott b:9 July 1834 at Seavington married Jacob LONG 1835-1909 at Seavington on the 24 February 1857.
Jacob was the son of William LONG 1804-xxxx and Ann CALLER 1804-1874
Jacob and Fortune arrived on the Anna Maria on the 20 June 1857
They had 6 children:-
Elizabeth Ann Long 1858 ? 1948
william LONG 1859 ? 1924
Mary LONG 1861 ? 1927
Jacob LONG 1863 ? 1865

Thanks Janilye. I really appreciate all that you have done. You are fantastic!!!

Yes you have provided me with lots to think about.

At some point in the future I will research the Fortune.

I found Thurza in the UK BMD listing. She was born 1839. That means I can add another brick in my wall/branch on my tree.

It now looks like my Elizabeth Phelps may have also been born in 1805 but in Winsham, Somerset. If it is her, then her father was Thomas Phelps and her mother was also Elizabeth.

Whoops I meant Fortune's line in Australia.

Just found out that THURZA/THIRZA married at age 12 to Giles Hodges in Seavington 6 November 1851.

It seems that until the early 20th Century Females in England could marry as early as 12 with parental consent.

John PHELPS was christened in April 1784 Dowlish Wake, Somerset, UK. He was the uncle of Elizabeth SCOTT (nee PHELPS).

His brother was GERMAN(christening documentation)/JARMAN (Wedding documentation)christened 1 Aug 1779 Dowlish Wake, Somerset, UK.

German/Jarman married MARTHA PERRY 31 Jan 1802 Dowlish Wake.

ELIZABETH PHELPS born (christened 10 April) 1808 Dowlish Wake.

I will now update this in my journal above.

Should have said that ELIZABETH PHELPS was the daughter of German/Jarman PHELPS and Martha PERRY.

Thirza Scott married Giles Hodges 6 November 1851. However the Thirza in question was actually her cousin who was born Aug 1828 to THOMAS and ANN SCOTT in Seavington.

by ALV on 2012-02-27 23:36:48

In fact my great great great aunty THURZA/THIRZA SCOTT never married and died in Keynsham, Somerset in 1902.

Thanks to cmsv for finally providing me with the info that proved Elizabeth was the daughter of John Phelps and Sarah Rendal. She also gave me the info that proved Anna Scott was the real mother of Walter Scott and that John and Elizabeth were his grandparents.
