I have a copy of "The Britons of Kingswood Chase and some
Gloucestershire Connections' by G.Britton Spilsbury.
That has (page 10 of the trees) Morris and Susannah's son Robert marrying
Nancy LACY Feb 4 1802 Bitton.
Their children Morris b.1802, Ruth b,1809, James Lacy b.1811, Robert b.1812.
I cannot see a mention of a Soloman and Sarah with a Robert bapt Hanham
but it has (page 19a of the trees) a Soloman married Sarah MEAD 1776
St Mary's having son Robert bp 1777 St Mary's who married Jane BRYANT
Ther children George bp 1801 St Mary's, Soloman bp 1805 drowned in pit aged
(I haven't checked this myself)
