Thank you so much for the photos. Your cottage looks to be a good size. Given that when William Avern made his will in 1775 and left so much to so many descendants, I can only assume that he did fairly well. His son Clement who was left the farm and died in 1798 left the farm to his 2nd wife Mary. Clement & his 1st wife were the parents of James who married Mary Ann Burdon (Clement left sons James & Thomas the balance of his estate - I am assuming money) after the funeral expenses and his other bequests to his daughters) James & Mary Ann's daughter Rebecka who married Mark Sturley is where my line continues. From cemetery transcriptions both James & Mary Ann are buried at the Rowington cemetery, as are Clement and his 1st wife (both wives were named Mary) although Clement's headstone was partially unreadable when the transcription was done and parish records gave us the rest of the information. I did not find a cemetery record for William & Frances Gardner and do not currently have any dates for their deaths or those of their children.
Thanks again for the photos.
