Hello again Josephine!
Wow, bingo, again! You're certainly on a roll.:)
I sent off another message re a possible marriage for George before I
checked for new mail and acknowledged your kind additional efforts.
You are really clearing the dust of these folk. My 82-yr-old mother will be
pleased (tho' not about my revealing her age if she finds that out!).
Was Thomas Jenkins, George's apprentice master also a hooper by trade?
Would there be apprenticeships papers for George Marman? Could his father's
name and residence be given?
Is Marman a rare, ordinary, or common name in Bristol and district?
Oh, and any information about hoopers and papermen in connexion with Bristol
would be very interesting, but it's not pressing.
Very many thanks to you from a grateful, far-flung,
[mailto:] On Behalf Of Josephine

George MARMAN, hooper, was made a Bristol Burgess on 27th. April 1757, his
qualification being that he was the apprentice of Bristol Burgess Thomas

James, Bristol. Martha was baptized there on 29th. August 1763, while Anna
Maria was baptized there on 20th. June 1768.
