Personal Notes:
Jean Yarwood writes "My grandmother Pam, who I called Nanny, used to tell me stories about her mother Ann, who was apparently quite a character. Once she managed to upset the local witch in Castle Cary who put a curse on her. That night despite all the windows and doors being shut and bolted, the chimney blocked and one of Nanny's brothers guarding the door with a shotgun, the witches' cats managed to get into the house and tried to smother Ann as she slept. However, she managed to fight off the weight on her chest and face and shouted " Get off you Buggers", with which her son ran into the room and the cats fled. Nanny always maintained that it was only her mothers physical strength and also her strength of character that kept her alive that night. This is a famous family story, however Nanny firmly believed all of it!! "That was true my dear.""

Lived at Galhampton at time of marriage.

Was probably illiterate.... 'X' on marriage certificate.
