The E-Shop

I've recently been revising my online shop which is now called the E-Shop. It contains a number of genealogical and family history files which I've created and made available for immediate download. The fees are modest and help towards the running costs of my web site.

The good news is that, for a limited period, I am offering 20% off all orders.

Many of the documents are based on particular ancestors of either mine or my husband's so if you're related to us, distantly or otherwise, then some of them may be of interest to you.

In addition, there are also transcripts of other resources such as Post Office Street Directories and Monumental Inscriptions for various places. More to come in the future!

My latest offering is Dursley, Gloucestershire - Bigland Transcript of Monumental Inscriptions.

Please take a look around the E-Shop and if you find any of the information contained within a document useful, I'd be very glad to hear from you.

He came from Curry Rivel in Somerset and spent a few short weeks serving in the Oxford & Bucks Light Infantry before he died in September 1916, ten days before Florence gave birth to my gran.

Site Updates - Surnames: Weaver, Twogood, Street, Munckton + Picture Gallery additions

Category: What's New at Hibbitt.org.uk

Hibbitt Family Tree section

I initially had the wrong Sarah as a wife of my 4 x great-grandfather, Robert Weaver (1789-1869). Beforehand, I had found a marriage in 1810 in Curry Rivel, Somerset, between a Robert Weaver and a Sarah Munckton, both previously widowed. However, there were always difficulties with this. Firstly, they were so young that they didn't seem to have had time to have been married before, I could find no obvious first marriages for either and their children didn't start coming along until 1817.

With my FindMyPast subscription, I recently discovered another marriage between a Robert Weaver, bachelor, and a Sarah Street, spinster. The couple were married in Curry Rivel on 26th March 1816. I now realize this is the better fit for my 4 x great-grandparents.

Whilst I don't have absolute proof, it's reasonable to assume the Weaver/Munckton marriage was the second wife of Robert's father, also Robert Weaver (1757-1832). Robert senior's first wife, Ann (nee Twogood/Toogood), may have died in 1809 as there is a burial in the Curry Rivel parish records of an Ann Weaver on 30th August 1809. There are no other Robert Weavers in the locality as far as I can tell.

This is a lesson in having to be very careful using datasets with various cut-off dates. Some websites, commercial and non-commercial, may not have all the parish records for a particular parish and so it's important to recognize this.

Updates include:

Place names: Curry Rivel in Somerset.

Resources > Family Tree Reports section

Dynamic Family Trees

The Dynamic Family Trees section has been removed. With the numerous devices on the market which don't have flash player installed, I've decided to concentrate my efforts on researching and updating the main family trees.
