    The grave of George Trant
    The grave of George Trant
    It is not clear from the gravestone if his daughter Sarah is also buried here, or just remembered on the stone. I suspect she was buried in Wales, especially as her name follows her father's, although she died 10 years earlier (although stones only being erected after a later death, not the first in a grave, are far from unknown)

    • by banns, witnesses Robert Bastard & Nicholas Straw

      I think that Philip born about 1782 in Frogmore was probably also a child of this marriage, otherwise a son of William's brother John (but with other children baptised Mar 1781 and Sep 1783 there was less of a gap to squeeze another in). See birth notes on Philip's page for my thoughts on this.
