Damn it, I really should take more notice - I remember looking for those witnesses, Walter and Martha Watkins last night and now I don't know why I was doing that. Did I look at this Clark marriage yesterday, not realising I'd not seen it before, or were their names somwhere else?

I expect it's unrelated but just thought I should mention it.

Yes. I'm not too keen on the name Clark for research!

I couldn't find any children for John and Ann in the Bath area, and not knowing anything more about them meant I didn't know if they were any of the John and Anns on the census.

I got a bit distracted as I'd completely forgotten what happened to Louisa Cook (the aunt of Elizabeth Clark)! Her body was exhumed to establish whether either her husband or his new wife had murdered her, likely by administering arsenic. No evidence was found.

Getting back to what I was originally looking for.....(and still haven't got anywhere with!) - Where is this Somerset family after 1841?

(John) Frederick Cheater (labourer) m Elizabeth Clark in Dec 1837 in Bath

John Frederick was bap 1816 Bath (only place he has the first forename)

Elizabeth was bap 1816 at Walcot (which was a separate parish to Bath, but often gets lumped in with the city). Elizabeth is my relative.

They only seem to have had one child in Bath reg district:

CHETER, LOUISA CLARKE
GRO Reference: 1839 D Quarter in BATH Volume 11 Page 33

(for anyone who remembers I also found a Joseph - I think he belongs to a different family)

Louisa died in Feb 1842 in Bath. (nothing helpful on her burial)

Here they are on the 1841 census:

Caroline Buildings, Lyncombe and Widcombe, Somerset

Fredrick Cheetre (transcribed as Cheetne on Ancestry), 25, french polisher, Yes
Elizabeth ditto, 20, Yes
Louisa ditto, 2, Yes

In June 1842 Elizabeth Cheater (23), Bath, was sentenced to 2 week hard labour for a minor theft. I had previously thought this Elizabeth might be a sister of Frederick, given he had a sister transported around the same time. However, I can't prove that, so she could well be mine.

After this, nothing for either of them. Any thoughts?
