Eventually I will put the transcription of Sander's book on my website (I still need to proofread it along with the chart and the corrections that I have made to it and why). Augustine was a schoolteacher and my family line has a number of school teachers (my 2x great grandmother was a school teacher as was one of her sisters). All members of the Augustine family appear to have been able to read and write as they always signed their marriage registrations. I am still extracting information on Selworthy and nearby places from the Parish Registers.
I also received a surprise email on the Blake family. I have been working on my proofs following back from Thomas Blake (b 1685) to John Blake to William Blake (Clerk) to William Blake to Richard Blake to William Blake to Nicholas Blake. I have revised my webpage slightly to show that dates are approximate where I do not clearly have a Parish Register record just so that there is no error in this thought. In discussion, there is perhaps a conflict in our data in that the other researcher shows two more generations between Nicholas and Richard Blake. I will review all the evidence and see if I have been too simplistic since I have only been researching a short period of time and I am always willing to step back and look at the available evidence and revise. I am generally on the cautious side with my webpage in order to prevent errors creeping into the genealogy of my families. There is a lot of mis-information out there and I do not want to add to it. It was interesting to see the tree that she had constructed from my family information online as it shows quite clearly what I do know and what I do not. That is somewhat of a relief as I wanted to be sure not to add to the misinformation. I will work away at all the evidence and see what emerges with respect to this rather ancient Hampshire family. Many claim that the roots of this family are at Calne Wiltshire but that is still to be proven in my mind.
Other than that I did not do any other work. The day flew by quickly and today I want to construct a large map of the Churchyard at Selworthy Somerset. I will also be working on the Blake family. I have copied the Manor Records for Upper Clatford to learn more about the Blake family there plus some Andover records. Perhaps it is time to move back to Hampshire records which also includes Abbots Ann where the Blake families lived.
