Samuel, carpenter, innholder, Wells, had town gr. 1699, m. 30 Jan. 1700-1 Dorcas Baston(7); j. 1701.
So, my ancestor Sammy ran an inn and did carpentry in Wells, but he had the town wha? Then his lovely wife Dorcas (giggle) did some j thing in 1701.
So, women could serve on juries in those parts in 1701?
> 1 What's so funny about "Dorcas"?
It's funny sounding in my head whenever I read it.
I think the "j" for jury is another in the list of references to Max in the old records.
He had a town grant, he married Dorcas, he served on a jury, . . .
