roger 'Stumpy' Marsh replied to my email search at this site in the Chedd forum and is listed as a descendant of Eli Chedd. I believe he lives in Australia.
The name Sarah Berry sounds so familiar to me-I will look up more info as well. Here is what I have on the Chedds so far. Hope it is helpful. Smiles Shelley

Generation No. 2

2. MARY ELLEN2 CHEDD (RICHARD1) was born 1832 in Morcombelake, Dorset, England. She married JAMES WILSON BRYNING, son of JOHN BRYNING and ESTHER WILSON. He was born Abt. 1823 in Liverpool, Lancashire, England.

Notes for MARY ELLEN CHEDD:
Mary Helen Chedd is listed on the 1871 London census as being born in MamobeLuke, Dorset. There is no place that I can find and I assume it is Morcombelake, Dorset she is from.
Morcombelake sits under Hardown Hill, 4 miles west of Bridport, and has a little chapel-like church of 1841. Moores Biscuit Bakery on the south side of the A35 is the home of the Dorset knob. Dorset knobs were the traditional meal for local farm workers at the start of the day and the company has been making them since 1850. The factory is open to the public and one can walk through the bakery seeing their famous Dorset knobs and other delicious biscuits being made. There is also a small art gallery and shop. Near the village, overlooking Lyme Bay, is an unobtrusive square stone well enclosed by a wooden fence. This ancient well is dedicated to St Candida, known locally as Saint Wite or 'White', who gave her name also to the village of Whitchurch Canonicorum a few miles away, where there is a shrine to her. It is said that she was a Saxon holy woman, or anchorite, killed by the Danish raiders who ravaged the area in the 8th century. The well has always been known as a healing well, and the water is said to be especially beneficial for sore eyes. When small blue flowers - perhaps the speedwell, perhaps a periwinkle - were found to be growing on the hill, they acquired the nickname 'St Candida's Eyes' in honor of the saint.
Birthplace of Mary Helen Chedd 1823:
"Dorset, maritime County, on south coast of England; is bounded north by Somerset and Wilts, east by Hants, south by the English Channel, and west by Devon; length, east and west, 52 miles; breadth, north and south, 37 miles; coastline, 75 miles; area, 627,265 acres; population 191,028. The main features of the coast are Poole Harbour, St Alban's Head, and the singular projection called the Isle of Portland. The principal streams are the Stour and the Frome. Great part of the county is traversed by the two ranges of chalk hills called the North and South Downs, and the soil consists mainly of chalk, gravel, and sand, but is very fertile in the valleys. Wheat and barley are grown in the west and north. Immense flocks of sheep are pastured on the Downs. Dairy farms are generally large, and dairy husbandry is carried to a very high point of perfection. The only mineral of any importance is Portland stone, quarried in the Isle of Portland. There are manufactures, to some extent, of sailcloth, sacking, nets, paper, silk, &c., with malting and brewing, and iron-founding. The fisheries, especially of mackerel, are considerable, and ships and yachts are built at Poole." [Bartholemew's Gazetteer of the British Isles, 1887]

Poor Hannah has been mistranscribed as Charles!! James was a hydropathic professor and Turkish bath keeper. Elizabeth was a domestic servant. They were at 191 Blackfriar Road.

James Wilson Bryning 3rd Great Grandfather of Shelley Purdon was born in 1832. In the 1871 census James is the owner of the 191 Blackfriars Road Turkish Bath and a hydropathy professor: Hydropathy, or hydrotherapy, is a kind of medical treatment, with water being prescribed both internally and externally. Hydropathy: The cold water cure It is beyond the scope of this project to deal in any depth with hydropathy—often called the water cure, or the cold water cure. Suffice it to indicate that there were three major components of the cure as systematised by Vincent Priessnitz: drinking considerable quantities of (usually) mineralized water (as is still the practice in many health spas), wet sheet packing, and exposing the body to a wide range of specialised showers or douches. All aspects are admirably, and entertainingly, treated in E S Turner's Taking the cure, while useful and practical information on spas today can readily be found in the Spas Directory. Wet sheet packing involved wrapping the patient in wet sheets for varying periods of time. Initially the patient felt decidedly cold, then merely cool, and finally increasingly warm until s/he broke out in perspiration, rather akin to a fever. Dr Richard Barter deduced that it was actually the feverish perspiration which was responsible for any improvement in the patient's condition, and realised that the Turkish bath, as described by David Urquart in The Pillars of Hercules, was a far more comfortable and enjoyable way of inducing a sweat. source:http://www.victorianturkishbath.orgThough the drinking of water was recommended for those undergoing hydropathic treatment, the water that was consumed by the patients did not necessarily contain medicinal properties. A Hydro was a building (hotel) where these treatments were carried out. A visit to Blackfriars Road in November 2002 revealed that No.191 has been demolished, possibly quite recently as, at the time of the visit, a builder's hoarding surrounded the site. However, a few doors further south, No.171 is one of very few 19th century buildings still standing in this part of the road and, though it has been much altered, it seems in many respects to be similar to the building in the photograph.A door, similar to that in front of which the figures are standing in the photograph, still exists; the windows on either side of it have been converted into 'modern' shopfronts, but the decorative brickwork above and between the old windows remains. A large area in front of the building has been concreted and this stands in marked contrast to the paving slabs which cover the part of the pavement nearest the road.It seems most likely, therefore, that the Turkish baths were in the basement of the building, otherwise the sign would surely have been above the ground floor windows. Bathers would have entered through a door leading off an open area in front of the building, reached by steps down from the street. Such open areas and entrances were very common in London in the nineteenth century and the front of the basement was probably lit by the two small windows beneath the words 'TURKISH BATH'. London: Blackfriars Road (191) Source: Internet Turkish Bath Very little is known so far about this establishment, but thanks to Paul, a visitor to the site, we are able to publish what he calls a 'rather poor' photo showing the baths in 1879. But such photos become valuable pieces of evidence when trying to document the history of an institution like the Victorian Turkish bath because so little evidence survives. Shelley has emailed Paul for more info on family. In the enlarged version of the photograph (which has a caption suggesting how the picture might be interpreted) it is possible to make out the figures of a small girl and three men. The young girl is understood by Paul's family to be his grandmother Maud(e). It seems likely that among the men in the photo, one is her father John Bryning, and another is his brother James W Bryning, the owner of the Turkish bath. James W Bryning emigrated to the USA in 1887 so it may be that he retained ownership of the bath until that date, selling it on to James Spurway before he left.

LANCASHIRE (birthplace of James Wilson Bryning) A county of England, lying on the Irish Sea, and bounded by Cumberland, Westmoreland, Yorkshire, and Cheshire. It is 75 miles in length, and 30 in breadth. It is divided into 6 hundreds, which contain 27 market towns, 62 parishes, and 894 villages. This county comprises a variety of soil and face of country; there being mountains of more than 2000 feet high, in the north and eastern parts, with wide moorlands or heaths amongst them; extensive bogs or mosses, which yield only turf for fuel, and are very dangerous; and some most fertile land for agricultural purposes. it yields iron, coal, slate, and other building-stones; salt, &c. &c. Grazing is more attended to than agriculture. The fisheries, both in the rivers and the sea, are valuable. As a commercial and manufacturing county, Lancashire is distinguished beyond most others in the kingdom. Its principal manufactures are linen, silk, and cotton goods; fustians, counterpanes, shalloons, baize, serges, tapes, small wares, hats, sail-cloth, sacking, pins, iron goods, cast plate-glass, &c. Of the commerce of this county, it may suffice to observe, that Liverpool is now the second port in the United Kingdom. The principal rivers are the Mersey, Irwell, Ribble, Lune, Leven, Wyre, Hodder, Roche, Duddon, Winster, Kent, and Calder, and it has two considerable lakes, Windermere and Coniston Water. Lancaster is the county town. Population, 1,667,054. It returns 26 members to parliament. (From Barclay's Complete and Universal Dictionary of 1842.)

1851 Liverpool Census (LAN) contains 2 entries for James Bryning.

Notes for AGNES BRYNING CRESSWELL:
August 2004: Aunt Myrna Faulkner confirmed that Agnes is buried in Wallard Community Cemetery, Wallard, Saskatchewan (25 miles south of Pontex and 23 miles south of Aneroid located at NW10-6-11-W3) and visited the grave that has no headstone. She is buried with Charles Howey 1907-1952 and Kelsey Howey 1901-1907 as well as there are a lot of Baragers buried here perhaps related to the husband of Muriel Howey who married Curtis Barager. This burial site for Agnes is also confirmed by Shelley Purdon on the Wallard Community Cemetery listing on the internet. Little is known about Agnes and no death records have been found to date as to her life or her death. Myrna, Cecil Howey and myself will look into a headstone for Agnes.

Notes for HUGH ALMER HOWEY:
Source: Judy Lampkin email: reflections@sympatico.ca June 18, 2004: In response to your query on Ancestry...Hugh Howey was the brother of my husband Don's grandmother Grace Lucinda "Louie" Howey....Hugh's two youngest siblings were the only ones born in Galt and I'm positive Hugh was born in Beverly Twp. The house that Thomas and Adelaide lived in at Galt is still standing and in good repair. It seems that they lived a modest life and didn't want for much. My mother in law, Adelaide 'Lenore' Misener remembers travelling by sliegh in the winter to visit her grandmother, Adelaide. Her mother 'Louie' was married from the house and we have a beautiful picture of her wedding dress that she made. I'm not sure if I have any pictures of Hugh and his family as we inherited two boxes of old pictures and some of them don't have any names on them. There is one family picture where the father looks a lot like Thomas Howey. I have quite a bit of data on this family but have nothing on Hugh's (sent her my line this date) I would be happy to exchange data with you and hopefully we can fill in some of the blanks Sincerely Judy Lampkin from Ontario.

Notes for ROBERT GEORGE MARSH:
Hi Shelley, I have a Mary Ellen CHEDD, chr. 30 June 1834 at Whitchurch
Canonicorum, dau. of Richard CHEDD and Hannah BEALE. That's all I know about her.
Richard b. 1803, d. 1882.
m. 16 June 1824, Whitchurch Canonicorum
Hannah b. 1803, d. 1877.
And that's all I know about them.
There were 9 children, about whom I have varying amounts of detail -
mostly very little. Most of this information isn't referenced in my
database, which means I probably inherited it from my great uncle.
I've attached a photo of Mary Ellen's brother Eli from my late
grandmother's album.
Robert George, son of Roger, son of Everard John (Jack) MARSH and Lyla
Frances Mary, dau. of George, son of Samuel, son of Eli, son of
Richard and Hannah (nee BEALE) CHEDD.
R.G. "Stumpy" Marsh.
