Subject: [TUDGAY] TUDGY in Motcombe
Date: Thu, 7 Aug 2003 12:06:28 +1000
Here is a copy of a message I sent to the Wiltshire Rootsweb List,
and which I thought I'd share with you in case it's new information
and in case it helps anyone find some missing links between our
families. I hope I'm right in saying Motcombe is in Dorset. What
interests me is that the dates of birth for these TUDGY's (and the
spelling) would be around the time my William TUDGY (married in 1752
in Fovant, the family said, but which might now have been in
Swallowcliffe) might be expected to be born.
"Can someone explain this please? These TUDGYs are on a list of
"Removals to Motcombe " in Dorset. Helen Jones who was listowner of
the Dorset List found them at the Dorset Record office (and I found
it in the Archives). But, what does "Removal" mean? They were
"removed" from Longbridge Deverill (Wilts) to Motcombe (Dorset). And
does c/o mean "child of"? And does "dcd" mean "deceased"??
OV4/4/2 1736 TUDGY John c/o James & Ann dcd Longbridge Deverill, Wilts
OV4/4/2 1736 TUDGY Ann c/o James & Ann dcd Longbridge Deverill, Wilts
On the Motcombe Marriage Register (online) it gives James TUDGEY of
Longbridge Deverill marrying Ann Crough on 24th June 1727. This
couple is surely the James and Ann referred to here. So their
children were "removed"
Then on the Motcombe Baptisms it gives
John TUDGY son of James TUDGY baptised 9/4/1731
Ann TUDGY dau of James bap. 3rd Feb. 1733.
It looks as though James from Longbndge Deverill married Ann from
Motcombe and that the children were born at Motcombe and moved to LD
and then were sent back three years later. If "dcd" does mean
deceased, would it mean that the children were now orphans and
"removed" to the parish where they were born to be supported?"
