The stonemason has wrongly carved “1849” into the marble memorial to George WELLINGTON (1781-1847) [Yeovil Parish Church of St John the Baptist / West Wall of South Aisle]. George was a chemist and druggist, assistant overseer of the poor and a former town portreeve in Yeovil, Somerset. He definitely died in November 1847, I have his death certificate and an account of the coronial enquiry into his death – he was “found drowned”. Watch this blog for the full story.

  2. I tried to help an American family back in 2005, as a Wellington researcher myself, I have a database that holds 12,600 intermarried families of Wellingtons, I living in Wales they contacted me through the internet I was asked to trace her grandfather born in the 1900s who was born in London, I have his birth certificate and I decieded to trace the family back through the branches back to the tree, I have your family on this tree and goes back to abt 1540.

    Best wishes ………..Jack

    • Thank you for your message Jack, I have been researching since 2000 and have my direct ancestor branches back to about 1600 and also a lot of the interconnecting branches back to the 1400s. I will be in touch by email.

      Kind regards Susan

      • Hi Susan
        That will be fine, I have about 735 of your branch.

        Best wishes ……. Jack
