    Frank, Mark, and George Clist
    The handwriting is Leonard Clist's. He has identified My Father Frank on the left. At the top is My father's two brothers, Mark, and George Clist (right). From Mark's clothes and centrality, we deduce that this photo of the three brothers was taken on Mark's wedding day, 12 May 1897. Sadly, Mark died just over two years later.

    George Clist's Family Bible
    George Clist's Family Bible
    Inscribed "George Clist and his dear wife Mary Clist, 1902" this massive book contains three pages of family births and deaths. After George Clist died in 1934, further entries were apparently made by his daughter Dorothy until her death in 1966. The Bible then passed into the possession of her neice Ida Dorothy Jenkins who lived in New Jersey, USA. It was this Dorothy who passed it on to Roger Clist in New Zealand.
    The Forge and the Ivy Cottage (under construction)
    The Forge and the Ivy Cottage (under construction)
    This page describes my fascination with two ancestral homes at Shoreditch, Taunton. The Forge was the cottage beside the old Smithy which was once occupied by George and Mary Clist and family, and then by Ted and Emily Rossiter once George and Mary had moved to their new house Ivy Cottage which was built a short distance down the road. Both homes are still there, having passed to new owners; also the old Smithy, but its use has been changed.
