Joseph MUDFORD
about 1794 (Age 57)
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.
Marriage of a grandchildJoseph MUDFORDElizabeth “Betsy” HAYWOODView this family
August 14, 1816 (Age 80)
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.
