BMDB data

     John Andrews was born cir. May 1809 Martock, SOM, ENG.5 He was baptized on 21 May 1809 Martock, SOM; there are three alternate dates to reconcile for John's baptism: the "History"4 has 21 May, Sheila's FT3 has 21 Mar, and I've transcribed the baptism as 3rd May. As the Martock web site also has 21 May, I've assumed that is correct. Entry reads: "John the son of John & Rebecca Andrews.4,5,3,6"
     John Andrews married Tabitha Hunt on 26 Mar 1832 Odcombe, SOM, ENG, entry shows John ANDREWS & Tabitha HUNT, b.o.t.p. marr. in this church by banns; X their marks; Wit: Mark HUNT, Joseph FRAMPTON.7,8,9
     John Andrews died cir. Jun 1845 Odcombe, Dist of Yeovil, SOM, ENG; "less than a mth after the dth of his 2 yr old son Samson", and therefore assumed to be the dth registered Yeovil Jun qtr 1845 (vol 10 p394) which does make the parentage of Emma rather unlikely to be John.1,10 He was buried on 20 Jun 1845 Odcombe, SOM.3

Census/Where lived/Occupations

     John Andrews appeared on the census of 7 Jun 1841 Odcombe, SOM, ENG, with Tabitha Andrews, as ANDREWS: John 30 ag lab, Tabitha, 30 glover; George 9; Mary 5; Luke 1 (all b County) (son James is assumed to be the 6 yr old with his grdparents John & Rebecca in Martock) (NB enumerators were instructed to round ages down to the nearest multiple of 5.)11,12 John Andrews was described as a coachman in 1855 probably in ?SOM, ENG, when dtr Mary Ann married.13 By Mar 1880 John Andrews was described as a carpenter, and the father of Emily aka Emma when she married John Andrews, son of Abraham and Mary Ann (Chant) Andrews (Abraham being John's brother) Which marr. cert. is wrong on both counts, "father" John Andrews had died in 1845, so Emily can't have been his dtr, and he wasn't usually described as a carpenter.14,15

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
