Surname
MUDFORD
Birth about 1794 32 24
Note: Joseph is believed to have been born in 1794 at West Chinnock, Somerset, England. It is not known who his parents were or if he had any brothers and sisters. There is a possibility that he was the son of Joseph and Susanna Mudford but this is just speculation.
MarriageElizabeth “Betsy” HAYWOODView this family
August 14, 1816 (Age 22 years)
Note: Witnesses at the wedding were John Meacham and Joseph Ford. Attempts to trace Elizabeth's parents have failed although there was a Hayward family living in the area. They were wealthy sailcloth manufacturers and so it has been assumed that such a family would not allow their daughter to marry a poor sailcloth weaver such as Joseph. The fact that the witnesses at their wedding were not family members might suggest that the brides parents had not given their blessing to the marriage. It is believed that Elizabeth was born about 1794 and her place of birth unknown. The marriage records suggest she was living in West Chinnock at the time of the event.

1833 (Age 39 years)
Address: Meacham's Corner
Note: This was a leased property. The cottage had previously been leased to Joseph and Susanna Mudford. Susanna's husband died in March 1833 and the lease then passed to Joseph & Elizabeth. This house was demolished sometime between 1886 and 1914. It would appear that there were two cottages located on the lease as the cottage that Joseph moved into was described as newly erected in 1833. The main building had been divided into two and later into three.
