+ William Acourt or A’Court or Court

Born: 1825  North Cadbury, Somerset

Parents: James c1781-? and Elizabeth.  Aunt Frances Coleman (1789-between 1881 and 1891 censuses) born North Cadbury

Married: Sarah Oram c1833-1903 in early 1878, in the Wincanton Registration District of Somerest

Offspring: None known

Died: 1889 interred North Cadbury, 64yrs old.

NOTE: Sarah’s grandfather John Oram 1772-1802 probably married Mary Coleman of North Cadbury, so was aunt Frances Coleman a relation of the Oram family?

William’s birth register shows that his father was a carrier and they lived in Galhampton. In the 1841 census William was living with his father and brother in North Cadbury.

He then appears to vanish until he returns to North Cadbury by the 1871 census as an agricultural labourer living with his 82 year old aunt Frances Coleman. Sarah Oram is a ‘companion’ to Frances.

In 1878 Sarah and William were married.  By the 1881 census they had no children and William’s aunt was still alive.

There is a record of William A’Court marrying Sarah Hamblyn in Castle Cary 1859. This William was the son of William rather than James and census returns show they lived in Castle Cary.
