Message from George Flew:
My great great grandfather was George Flew, born in Long Ashton in 1830. He married Mary Ann Martin from Arundel born in 1828. They emigrated to the US in the mid to late 1860s. His brother, William Flew, b. 1826 in Long Ashton, married Anna Maria "A. M." Cook b. 1833 in Bedminster. She stayed in touch with her US kin until her death in Bristol in 1914.
My research indicates that George’s father was William, b 1796 in Long Ashton who married Sarah Watkins, b. 1795 in Tralick, Wales. William’s father was William b. 1752 in Long Ashton married to Ann Davies, b. 1764 in Bristol. His father was also William, b 1730 in Somerset. Possibly he was involved with some tales of sorcery around Mangotsfield and the Lamb Inn incident of 1762.
In addition to Flews, I am also related, through marriage, to Days and Hooks.
I would like to contact anyone that might be related or have information regarding the Flew line. Particularly, a link to the Flews around Portland and in the Devon area.
Thanks in advance,
Knoxville, TN, USA
If anybody can help, I will connect with George.
