Philip Talbott 1773-1851 and Elizabeth Humphries 1774-1841

Philip Talbott 1773-1851 was born in Stawell, Somerset, baptised there on 15 November 1773 and died in Sparkford, Somerset buried 12 May 1851. Luckily Philip was included in the 1851 census where he stated that he was born in Stawell, a hamlet near Bridgwater 20 miles from Sparkford.

Philip married Elizabeth Humphries 1774-1841 on 5 Sept 1796 at Sparkford, Somerset who was buried 18 Jan 1841 aged 67 years at Sparkford. Two other Talbotts from Stawell had married women from the Humphries family in nearby Weston Bampfylde,  see Talbott in Stawell page . The little that we know about the Humpries family is on their page.

Philip 1774-1851 was a carpenter and his 1803 bill for work he carried out in an unspecified church was found in the back of an old Oram family atlas.
