    Notes for Kezia(h) COWMEADOW:
    According to her marriage certificate, Kezia was born in 1842. Similarly, her death in 1878 at the age of 36 suggests this is the correct year of birth. In both 1861 and 1871 she is shown as being born in 1840 but in 1841 she is shown as being born in 1836 and in 1851 as born in 1837. However, on the IGI on FamilySearch there is a baptism in 1836 for a Keziah COWMEADOW. Surely there cannot be two such named persons in Bridstow both with father Thomas? It is possible that when she married John, who was born in 1842, Kezia(h) decided she did not want to be seen to be older than him; it was John who registered the death so the wrong age would have been entered by him. On the other hand, the Keziah baptised in 1836 could have died and a later child given the same name. More research required!

The idea of these charts is to give the information that we have found in the research we have done and put together and with the help of many other people who have contacted us over the past thirty odd years we have been researching our family. The idea is that you click on the Chart box in blue to be taken to the next family. There is now a large number of charts to be found and connections can be made to all the main families I am researching. If a chart has a box with the standard background it means that as yet I have not put the Chart on the Web.
To conform to the Data Protection Act all the Charts have been altered to exclude all details for living people other than the name.
