    This is the only known photograph of my great-great grandfather John Clist, Blacksmith of Shoreditch, Taunton, who passed away in 1891 aged 56 years. The red mark is damage on my copy of the photograph. Trevor Clist (Canada) has an undamaged copy of this photograph.

    Documents

    Marriage Certificate, John Clist and Elizabeth Manfield
    Married 3 April 1861 in the Parish Church, Hemyock. John Clist is a Blacksmith residing in St Mark Magdalene, Taunton. Elizabeth is a Servant living in Hemyock. Witnessed by Sarah Manfield, and "the mark of" John Manfield, Elizabeth's father. Presumably John Manfield was illiterate and unable to sign his name. His occupation is Labourer, which presumably means an agricultural worker.

    by Roger Clist

    My great-great-grandfather John Clist was born in 1835 in Hemyock, Devon. As Civil Registration of births started on 1 July 1837, we do not know his birth date. However, I have obtained his marriage certificate, which confirms he was aged 26 when he married on 3 Apr 1861. I have subsequently found from parish records that he was christened on 25 Jan 1835. But this also revealed a big surprise!
