Evening Telegram November 4, 1922 (Saturday)

Trinity. ...
(Note: The use of the personal pronoun "I" in some of the articles below, refers to the original author of the newspaper article. This was Canon William Lockyer, the Anglican clergyman in Trinity, who wrote a number of historical and current pieces for the newspaper of the day. The excerpts I have presented are only a small portion of any given piece - they are extremely interesting for anyone with an interest in Trinity or vicinity, but I do not have sufficient time to transcribe them in full. - Tom Hynes)
Upon reference to the old Marriage Register, however, I find that between the years 1769 and 1803 the majority of the men then married were from Somersetshire, as follows: -
1800. James Vallis, of Ledford, Somerset, and Jane Ivamy.
