Henry Priddle
Henry is the son of Samuel Priddle and Hannah Taylor and was born in 1738 and baptised on the 9th of April 1738 in Kingsbury Episcopi in Somerset.  He died on the 16th of July 1789 in Kingsbury Episcopi, at the age of 51.  He was buried two days later.
There is a record of a Henry Priddle being buried on the 18th of July 1790 in Wollen, in the Kingsbury Episcopi records.
In this year in 1738;
  • 1st of February, The ‘Methodist’ John Wesley returns from his preaching tour of America.
After banns of marriage were published on the 15th, 22nd and 29th of April, Henry and Anna were married on 14th May 1764 in Kingsbury Episcopi.  At that time both of them were living in the parish and Henry was working as a carpenter.  The marriage was signed by Henry and Anna with their marks suggesting that they were illiterate.
Kingsbury Episcopi is a village and civil parish on the River Parrett in Somerset.  The parish includes the villages of West Lambrook, East Lambrook and Thorney.  It is just two miles north of East Lambrook.  The "Episcopi" part of the village's name means "of the Bishop" in Latin.  It refers to the fact that the village belonged to the Bishop of Bath and Wells and not the nearby abbey at Muchelney.
Despite marrying in 1764 the first child that can be found is Charles who was born in 1773, nine years after the wedding, in Kingsbury Episcopi.  Then three years later in 1776 the couple celebrated the birth of another son, James who they baptised on the 16th of November 1777 in East Lambrook, which is about two miles south of Kingsbury Episcopi.
They had a daughter, Hannah in 1779 at Picken Bridge in South Petherton in Somerset.  Which is about four miles south of Kingsbury Episcopi.  They baptised her on the 5th of December that year in East Lambrook.
Another three years later in 1782 they had a second daughter, Mary who was baptised on the 4th of August that year in East Lambrook.
At the age of 51 Henry died on the 16th of July 1789 in Kingsbury Episcopi and was buried two days later.
Noted events in his life were:
*  Living: 14 May 1764, Kingsbury Episcopi, Somerset. 
*  He worked as a carpenter on 14 May 1764.
Children from this marriage were:
i.     Charles Priddle – (1773 - )
ii.     James Priddle – (1776 - )
iii.   Hannah Priddle – (1779 – 4/5/1866)
iv.   Mary Priddle – (1782 – 1819)
St. Martin's Church, Kingsbury Episcopi
Anna Thomas                                    end of lineage                                    
Anna is believed to have been born about 1744 in Kingsbury Episcopi in Somerset and she was buried on the 19th of December 1819 in Somerset at the age of 75.
Also known as Ann.
There is an Ann Thomas, daughter of Mirriam Thomas, who was baptised on the 8th of June 1746 in Wookey in Somerset, where Wookey is 22 miles north of Kingsbury Episcopi.
On the 9th of April 1799 Anna’s daughter, Hannah married Samuel Inder in Kingsbury Episcopi.  Hannah had to sign the register with her mark suggesting that, like her parents, she was illiterate.
Following banns read on the 16th, 23rd and 30th of October 1803 Anna’s youngest daughter, 21 year-old Mary married 24 year-old John Trott three weeks later on the 22nd of November in Kingsbury Episcopi.  Mary signed the register as did witnesses Samuel and Harriet Priddle.  It is assumed that Harriet is Mary’s sister, and that Samuel maybe her grandfather.
On the 12th of May 1819 Anna’s 37 year-old daughter Mary was buried in Lopen in Somerset.  Lopen is about five miles south of Kingsbury Episcopi.
Later that year on the 19th of December 1819 there is a record of ‘Hannah’ Priddle being buried in Somerset.  At present there is no proof that this is Anna. 
Noted events in her life were:
*  Living: 14 May 1764, Kingsbury Episcopi, Somerset.
