Documents and Articles - New Additions, June 2009

Another convert to the Mormon Church was John Herbert.

He was born May 13th 1827, son of Solomon and Esther (nee Phelps) Herbert.
John married Patience Good of Cheltenham. They joined the Mormon Church in aprox. 1853 and about 1 year later John, Patience and Solomon left for Utah on the vessel "Sidon".

I believe a document exists in the "Documents and Articles" section of this extremely informative forum. I have yet to find anyone even remotely related to any of the persons who emigrated but would welcome any feedback from related families.

Descendants of John Coster Newland 1613.pdf

The COSTER family is associated with some of the earliest copper mills in the Bristol area. They are included here because of the discovery of a Marriage License allegation in GLS: 1709 Jun 15 John THOMPSON aged 22, of Newland, Glos & Anne COSTER aged 22, spinster of Newland, Glos, with consent of friends. Signed 'John TOMPSON'.

The actual marriage has not been found (original records noted as unfit), but there are baptisms, beginning in 1710, Newland, of children of John/Anne THOMPSON. John is identified within the known THOMPSON family, but Anne has not yet been identified/placed within the known COSTER family of Redbrook/Newland.

We suspect that this couple may be the founding THOMPSON family of Bye Mill, SOM and are searching area records. If so, most of the area THOMPSONs are also COSTERs.
