I was interested in your query mainly because of the name Patterson. My
3xgt grandfather (the brother of the Ann Domett who married George
Templeman) married a Barbara Patterson who I have never been able to trace.
On the strength of that I did some research and came up with the following -
I haven't found a lot on the Bonners but Thomas Bonner married Joanna
Patterson of Axminster on the 5th Oct 1779 at Allington (Bridport with
Allington), Dorset. Both he and Joanna are mentioned on page 668 in The
Book of the Axe - Memorial Inscriptions. I haven't seen that.
They also 2 other children - Joanna christened at Allington 19.12.1779
(Dorset OPC) and William Drew christened aged 2 13.1.1797 (IGI).
This latter child is interesting as I have been trying to connect a William
Drew Patterson of Uplyme to my Barbara without any luck. Wm Drew Patterson,
grazier, died in Uplyme in 1851. I have a copy of his Will which,
unfortunately, doesn't name his wife or children. He just refers to 'my
wife' and 'my children'. I did find a son for him who was also called
William Drew Patterson but that is all at the moment. He only specifically
names his exors and trustees as John Smith, the younger of Thorncombe
yeoman, John Caddy of Bettiscombe Farm, parish 'blank', Dorset and Thornhill
Gay the younger of Uplyme, yeoman (who seems to have a connection with the
William Drew Patterson is shown as a Devon Freeholder in Uplyme in 1799 and
William Drew, gent of Axminster in 1771.
James Templeman - per 1861 census was a draper, born in Bothenhampton
(Bridport). Charles Templeman was the enumerator of the 1841 census in
Bothenhampton. Charles as the father of James - see below.
Charles Templeman of Cerne Abbas married Ann Perham 2.12.1802 by licence in
Bothenhampton (Dorset OPC. In 1851 he was a baker aged 41, born in Bridport
and living in Botenhampton.
At the same time there is a George Templeman (aged 37) an annuitant, also
born Bridport and in Bothenhampton.
At the same time - James Templeman aged 33, a draper born in Bothehampton
and living in Bridport. He crops up in the Postal & Commercial Directory of
1865 as a councillor in Bridport with Allington.
Emma Templeman's brother Charles had at least 2 children - James & George
according to her Will. I have never liked the marriage of Charles to Sarah
Churchill as fitting in here. The names don't work BUT if her brother
Charles married Anne Perham then it does work viz. children - Richard Perham
Templeman b.1808, John b. 1811, Ann and James. This happily slots James in
as Emma's nephew born in 1818.
What thinkest thou?
