PRIDDLE FAMILY HISTORY
PRIDDLE FAMILY OF CURRY RIVEL, SOMERSET
A William Priddle (b.c.1791-1801, apparently in Hambridge, later a carpenter) married Sarah Stoodley at Isle Abbots in 1813 (banns were also read at Curry Rivel). They had a son William baptised in Curry Rivel in 1815, and a daughter Elizabeth in 1818, and Elizabeth went on to marry James Hake (alias Hek) there in 1837-38. This line is being researched by Tanya and also by Barbara Thomas, who believes that William may have been the son of a Samuel Priddle born around 1770, probably the William baptised at East Lambrook in 1789.
There were several other contemporary Priddle families living in Curry Rivel from the 1820's, including James and Jane (children 1824-1831), Samuel and Elizabeth (married 1827, children 1830-1836) and Stephen and Anne (both Priddles, married 1831, children 1831-1842), plus other later family members. The Male family website outlines their connection with Anna Ann Priddle (b.1842), the daughter of Stephen and Anne Priddle.
The picture before 1813 is currently unclear as our Priddle extracts only begin at that date. Anyone with further information on the Priddles of Curry Rivel is invited to include it here.
