Sorry I could not reach you by e-mail. Nice talking to you by phone. Can't do much in the way of Fam. Hist. either at the moment. Thanks to you finding what I believe to be the CORRECT burial of Edward Yarranton and Elizabeth South at Weston Beggard in 1828 and 1809 respectively, I have been able to revise my theory that Elizabeth was the one buried at Humber in 1809, and her husband had predeceased her. It seems you are correct in suggesting that the Edward buried at Weston Beggard is correct, as his age on burial matches that of the Edward baptised at Puddlestone to John Yarranton and Mary James in 1735. (See my article in Hereford FHS Vol. VI, No. 9, pp 330-333 - Apr 1997). The spelling of "Herrington" you mention moreover would seem to confirm the spelling of the earliest Yarrantons I have linked to in Grendon Bishop - that of "Errington".
More than this, your evidence also allowed me to trace Elizabeth South to a baptism at Weston Beggard in 1746, apparently daughter of a Joseph South and his wife Sarah Hill, who were married at Cradley in 1741. The youngest of this couple's 6 known children, Richard, was baptised at WITHINGTON in 1755, which surely cannot be insignificant since Edward Yarranton and Elizabeth South were married at Withington in 1775.
My connection with Edward Yarranton (your 3xgreat grandfather), son of Edward Yarranton and Elizabeth South, is that his brother, John, (bap Withington 1778)married Sarah Tyler at Humber in 1809. That marriage led me to the erroneous conclusion that an Elizabeth Yarranton, buried at Humber in 1809, might be Elizabeth South, and that Edward had therefore predeceased her. I apologise for any confusion this may have caused.
