Today is the day for great-great-aunts!
Ann BALL was christened on this day in 1838 in South Pool, Devon, and Harriet MURCH was born on this day in 1841 in Ottery St Mary, Devon.
Ann links into my Ball surname tree, and Harriet into my Haywood surname tree.
Ann was the ninth and youngest child of Jacob and Jane BALL. Census records her as living with them, then becoming a shopkeeper and marrying Robert PATEY on 30 April 1857 and having one daughter, Clara, in 1865.
Harriet was the sixth child (and fifth daughter) of Samuel and Joanna MURCH, following in the family tradition of becoming a lacemaker, then moving to Exeter, Devon with her joiner husband, Alfred PINE.
