Charles1775 & Ann Hurd (nee Salway)1781 had eight or nine children, Harriet1803,George1805, Ann1807, Charles1810(10th Feb), Ann1810(17th June?), Eliza1815, Mary1817, Samuel 1819, and Lucy1822.

 

George Hurd b 1805, and Sarah Small b 7th Jun 1808 , also from High Ham, married on 26th July 1831 shortly before their first of eight children, a son Albert, was born on Nov  14th 1831. Albion, their next son was born in 1832.  (Ques? Were Albert & Albion the same person as there is no parish record for an Albion being born, yet he is referred to at marriage and at burial in 1861) There then followed another son Henry born 25th AUG 1833, daughter Fanny,  born 14th  JUN 1835,  son Jonathan born 1838, and son Francis born 1841.  Annie Callow’s mother Elizabeth Hurd came on 15th Oct 1843(date according to Mary Bench), then another daughter  Edith,  in 1847.

 

Sarah Small was the 5th child of  Thomas and Aquilla Small (nee Lavers) of High Ham

 

The 1841 census shows George & Sarah, both aged 31, Albion aged 9, Henry 7, Jonathan 3 , and Francis 11 months.

 

According to the 1851High Ham census the family was living in Martins Lane, High Ham, with George an agricultural labourer, Sarah 49, and Elizabeth aged 7 (hence the birth date of 1844). Jonathan then 12 was a domestic servant at the farm of Francis Gillett in High Ham. Albion 19 a labourer, Francis 10, and Edith 4 were also present.

 

On 10th Dec 1857, Albion, aged 25, married Elizabeth Strong aged 20, a servant, also of High Ham. Her father was Thomas Strong a shoemaker.

 

Elizabeth’s mother Sarah Hurd ( nee Small) died on 13th Feb 1860, aged 51, at Low Ham.

 

Albion died on 18th Feb 1861 aged only 28, having been married only about 3 years.

 

By the time of the April 7th 1861 census there was only George Hurd 55, and Elizabeth 17, recorded. George was a thatcher. 

 

Sometime between the 1861 & 1871 census, George re married Mary Ann, probably in her home village of Othery.

 

The 1871 census records George Hurd 67, a thatcher from Low Ham, his new wife Mary Ann 48 from Othery, and Elizabeth 25, also from Low Ham. George had remarried sometime between 1861 and 1871.

 

The 1881 High Ham census finds just George Hurd 76, formerly a thatcher, with his wife Mary Ann 57.

Elizabeth now appears on the Burrowbridge 1881 census, wife to Joseph Callow 28, agricultural labourer from Greinton. She is now only 31, making her birth year 1850 (six years younger, perhaps more socially acceptable for a 28yr old husband?)! 

Annie Callow 2 months old, also appears as part of that family for the first time.

 

George Hurd  died 22nd  MAY 1882, aged 77.

 

Annie Callow of course, went on to marry James Bown1874 of Middlezoy in 1907.
