Another Flower Descendant

From Nick Clarke:

I am also descended from a Lamrock Flower, he married Mary Francis in 1777. The family lived in the manor house next to the church in Saltford. There seems to have been a Lamorock in each generation going back quite a long way.
His daughter Honour married Coster Thompson in 1802 and they are my 3xgreat grandparents. There are a number of Lamrock/Lamorock Thompsons including their son, my 2xgreat grandfather!
Honour was the sister of the (in-)famous Rebecca.

I imagine all you Flower descendants out there are aware of Penny Deverill’s book “Until She Be Dead”, the trial and execution of Rebecca Worlock, nee Flower, for the murder of her husband. Husband murder was considered treason: it was High Treason if committed against the state, Petty Treason if against one’s Lord & Master!  It did not apply if the reverse occurred.

  1. No surprise to me. My relatives have been interesting for, what appears to be, a long, long time
