Moses Teague (c.1792-1840) and Martha Cowmeadow (née Clayton (General)

Hi Rodders,

Many apologies for not responding sooner - I have only just seen your messages. Life has been a bit hectic, and I have not checked the Forum for several weeks.

I am also descended from James Griffiths and Elizabeth Cowmeadow through their son, Ernest, so we may be quite closely related.

Moses Cowmeadow does indeed sound like a character. I would love to see the newspaper reports.

The information you have provided is fascinating. I had been wondering if Martha could be Moses Teague's daughter, although I had been thinking that she might have been his daughter by his first wife, and that perhaps he arranged for her to be adopted when he remarried. However discovering that Moses Teague was connected with Backwell in 1812 makes the idea of illegitimacy seem more persuasive.

It is probably going to be another week or two before I have time to look at this properly, but I will get back to you when I have done so.

Thank you very much for getting in touch.
